Georgia Consumer Protection Laws & Consumer Complaints

Protecting Georgia Consumers

The Georgia Department of Law’s Consumer Protection Division protects Georgia consumers and legitimate businesses from unfair and deceptive practices involving consumer transactions. We do this by investigating consumer complaints, monitoring the marketplace, taking enforcement action against violators of the law and through consumer education.

File a Complaint

If you believe a business has acted in an unfair, deceptive or unlawful way, you can submit a complaint to our office.
