Consumer Affairs

The Director's office of the Department of Business and Industry has a number of programs and initiatives in place to assist constituents:  

  • Consumer Affairs Unit: A small but dedicated team of consumer affairs specialists and investigators may be able to help resolve constituent complaints related to deceptive trade and fraudulent business practices.
  • Agency Services: Our offices can provide you with referrals and guidance to help you obtain services from any of the 13 divisions within the Department.
  • Ombudsman for Consumer Affairs: The office of the Ombudsman of Consumer Affairs for Minorities provides education, outreach and programs for minority groups pertaining to consumer fraud and/or deceptive trade practices, business assistance, affordable housing and workforce and workplace issues.
  • Fight Fraud Taskforce: Our staff oversees and manages the state's Fight Fraud Taskforce, a group of dedicated professionals from government and private industry brought together to identify current consumer fraud issues and to provide education to inform and protect the public.
