Consumer Financial Protection Bureau
The Consumer Financial Protection Bureau works to give consumers the information they need to understand the terms of their agreements with financial companies. We are working to make regulations and guidance as clear and streamlined as possible so providers of consumer financial products and services can follow the rules on their own.
Department of Consumer Affairs
Since 1975, the County of Los Angeles Department of Consumer Affairs (DCA) has been the local consumer protection agency serving Los Angeles County consumers, businesses, and communities through education, advocacy, complaint resolution, and investigation of consumer fraud complaints.
Federal Trade Commission
The FTC is the only federal agency with both consumer protection and competition jurisdiction in broad sectors of the economy. The FTC pursues vigorous and effective law enforcement; advances consumers’ interests by sharing its expertise with federal and state legislatures and U.S. and international government agencies; develops policy and research tools through hearings, workshops, and conferences; and creates practical and plain-language educational programs for consumers and businesses in a global marketplace with constantly changing technologies.
