The Division enforces a number of laws that protect the buying public from false or misleading advertisements or sales practices. It also enforces laws that make sure consumers get information to help them make important decisions, like credit disclosure laws that help consumers compare loan offers.

The Division also informs the public about how to avoid becoming the victim of consumer fraud through press releases, information brochures, public speeches, and monthly Consumer Advisory newsletter columns. On this site, you can find a form to file a consumer complaint online, read or search our press releases, read or download consumer brochures, review consumer protection laws, and link to other helpful consumer sites.
