Attorneys General & Consumer Protection

Attorneys general are responsible for enforcing state consumer protection laws and protecting consumers from activities such as scams, deceptive and unfair trade practices, robocalling, and data breaches. They fight common consumer frauds conducted by illegitimate actors as well as consumer harms caused by legitimate businesses who have run afoul of the law. Attorneys general also have the authority to enforce many federal consumer protection laws.  

Attorneys general play a crucial role in ensuring a fair marketplace through consumer education, mediation, and enforcement actions. They often collaborate with each other and with other consumer protection enforcers to increase effectiveness. Learn more about the role of attorneys general in consumer protection.
