Consumer Fraud Continues to Grow as Markets Expand
Consumer fraud legislation in the U.S. has seen significant growth since it was established in the 1960s. Many federal statutes are in place to protect consumers from abuses by phone or fax, debt collection calls and deceptive trade practices. Texas law has many provisions against such abuses, often with more teeth than the federal statutes. Consumer protection continues to evolve, lately dealing with repairing credit histories, for example.
Consumer fraud continues to afflict people. When someone falls victim to a scam, a financial scheme, a product that fails, a debt collector who won’t give up, unauthorized credit card charges, mistaken or stolen identity, our consumer protection lawyers can help. We can make the abuse stop.
Consumer Fraud Clients Come in all Shapes and Sizes, from Every Corner of Texas
Our clients are normal everyday consumers and include individuals, families, business partnerships, churches and religious organizations – anyone who has fallen victim to deceptive practices in the marketplace or disputed a debt or was a victim of spoofing and robocalls, among many other actions.
Our consumer protection lawyers use federal statutes including the Fair Debt Collection Practice Act (FDCPA), the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (TCPA) and the Deceptive Trade Practices Act (DCPA) in concert with Texas statutes.
There are many Texas statutes that are useful in prosecuting consumer fraud. the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices – Consumer Protection Act (DTPA) protects Texas consumers against deceptive business and insurance practices, unconscionable actions, and warranty breaches. The Texas Business and Commerce Code and the Unfair Claim-Settlement Practice Act, found in the Texas Insurance Code, allows a defendant to make a pre-settlement offer, which may help end a legal proceeding early.
