Governor's Office of Consumer Protection

The Governor’s Office of Consumer Protection protects consumers and businesses from unlawful, deceptive and unfair practices in the marketplace.

The office represents the consuming public, as opposed to individual consumers. It promotes fair and honest competition, investigates patterns of unfair or deceptive activity in consumer matters, takes enforcement actions against violators and publishes consumer education materials and alert warnings.

FAQs: 
How do I find out whether a business is reputable? Can OCP recommend a particular business to me?

OCP is a law enforcement agency and will not recommend a particular company. It's best to speak with the Better Business Bureau for these recommendations. The BBB maintains a large database of businesses and charities and publishes reliability reports summarizing the experiences of other customers.

How do I file a complaint?

First, learn about the type of complaints that OCP can assist you with, and then begin filing a complaint, if appropriate.

What consumer educational material does OCP offer?

The A to Z Consumer Topics list offers detailed information on a variety of issues from identity theft to the Lemon Law complaint process. OCP has also created ConsumerEd.com to help walk consumers through major purchasing decisions, money management, and approaches to dealing with credit and debt. The site also features a consumer advice column that answers questions about improving your credit score, purchasing an automobile, handling landlord-tenant issues, repairing your home and more.
