Regulations formed by government to protect the interests of consumers, for example by requiring businesses to disclose detailed information about products, particularly in areas where safety or public health is an issue, such as food can be termed as consumer protection law. As a consumer we have various rights that help to make better choices in the marketplace.
In the United States there are a variety of laws on the federal or state levels that deal with Consumer Affairs including 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 and much more. Federal consumer protection laws are usually enforced by the Federal Trade Commission and the U.S. Department of Justice.
At the state level, many states have a Department of Consumer Affairs devoted to regulating certain industries and protecting consumers who regularly use goods and services from those industries.
For example, in the U.S. state of California, the Department of Consumer Affairs regulates about 2.3 million professionals in over 230 different professions through its 40 regulatory entities.

Consumer fraud exists when a consumer buys something; merchandise, services, property, that doesn’t work as advertised. The “something” can be a defective product, a real estate swindle, a fake charitable cause, bad faith denial of insurance coverage, a travel scam, as well as many, many other shams. Consumer fraud protection shields consumers from these deceptions primarily through enforcement of state and federal consumer protection and product safety laws.
