Consumer Protection Unit
About the Unit
The Consumer Protection Unit is part of the Fraud and Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General’s Office. The CPU is responsible for enforcing Delaware consumer protection statutes and protecting the general public from consumer frauds and scams. In addition to pursuing enforcement action against those who violate our consumer protection laws, the CPU also participates in community outreach and consumer education events, engages in consumer advocacy, and actively contributes to coordinated state and federal consumer protection investigations and initiatives.
Another important part of Consumer Protection’s work is to provide Delaware citizens with the information necessary to avoid becoming victims of consumer fraud and to help them in making wise purchasing decisions. We meet with community groups and provide important information through seminars, presentations and other consumer events. We issue Consumer Alerts and distribute brochures and fact sheets with valuable tips for consumers. Our brochures and information are available by mail and are on this website. The Attorney General and the Consumer Protection Unit work with local, state and federal agencies to coordinate investigative, enforcement, and educational efforts to protect our citizens and enforce our laws. If you would like to have a member of the Consumer Protection Unit speak to your group or organization, please call us at (800) 220-5424 or (302) 683-8800.
