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.   

Lemon Law

Have you had continuing problems with a vehicle you purchased new, leased new or registered new in Georgia? The Lemon Law provides a self-help process to help get eligible vehicles repaired, replaced or repurchased.

Price Gouging

The Price Gouging Statute is currently in effect throughout Georgia until 11:59pm on December 9, 2020.
