Consumer Fraud Laws protect consumers and businesses from unfair, unconscionable, deceptive and illegal conduct in trade and commerce. Examples of such conduct include fraud, pyramid schemes, Ponzi schemes, misleading advertising or marketing of products and services, excessive or undisclosed fees and almost any “get-rich-quick” scheme.
