What is Federal Consumer Fraud?
Consumer fraud occurs when a person suffers from financial losses by participating in false and unfair business practices.
Consumer fraud is an illicit activity that involves deceit and trickery that results in a group, or individual consumers to have financial losses.
Examples of Consumer Fraud include:
- Identity Theft
- Mortgage Fraud
- Credit/Debit Card Fraud
The Consumer Protection Bureau enforces the Federal Trade Commission, which states that consumers should and must be treated fairly, and not deceived by deceptive acts in the business.
