Consumers Have Rights And We Help Protect Them

Consumer rights are the rights given to a "consumer" to protect him/her from being cheated by salesmen, manufacturers and shopkeepers. Consumer protection laws are designed to ensure fair trade competition and the free flow of truthful information in the marketplace. The laws are designed to prevent businesses that engage in fraud or specified unfair practices from gaining an advantage over competitors and may provide additional protection for the weak and those unable to take care of themselves. A consumer is defined as anyone who acquires goods or services for direct use or ownership rather than for resale or use in production and manufacturing.

Federal And State Protections For Consumers

In the United States a variety of laws at both the federal or state levels regulate consumer affairs. Among them are the federal Fair Debt Collection Practices Act, the Fair Credit Reporting Act, Truth in Lending Act, Fair Credit Billing Act, and the Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act. Consumer protection laws govern scenarios such as deceptive advertising, deceptive pricing and less-than free offers.
