Attorney General Caldwell has pledged to focus intently on Consumer Protection and ways to help keep Louisiana’s Consumers better informed about the latest scams.
The best prevention to consumer fraud is education. The Consumer Protection Section offers consumer education programs designed to education Louisiana citizens through presentations, special events, publications and our website.
Here is some quick advice on how you can avoid being victimized by scams:
- Be wary of anything that sounds "too good to be true."
- Avoid high pressure sales tactics.
- Ask questions.
- Investigate offers made to you as a contest "winner."
- Check out price claims yourself.
- Ignore "once in a lifetime" offers.
A representative from the Consumer Protection Section will come speak to your organization on a variety of consumer issues such as elderly fraud, identity theft, landlord and tenant relationships, automobile fraud and much more. In addition, we can tailor presentations to meet your needs. We also offer information booths for community fairs, health fairs, trade shows, conferences, and related events.
If you are interested in requesting a speaker or having an information booth at your event, please complete our Speaker Request Form found under More Resources
