In Florida, consumer laws are made to guard the residents against scams. In addition, these consumer laws also provide rights against large corporations and the government. Florida consumer statutes are made to establish certain rights of consumers. These laws are also designed to protect the people from being harmed financially when engaged in consumer transactions.
The primary purpose for consumer laws is to ensure customers are made aware of what they purchase or lease and to make sure that what they do purchase or lease is what it is supposed to be and safe. These laws make sure food products have an ingredients list, and manufacturers do not have misleading advertisements. Consumer laws also protect people from shady business practices to protect people and ensure fairness when selling or buying products every step of the way. Consumer laws also protect people’s credit, such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act, which requires both credit bureaus and credit furnishers (like your bank, credit card company, landlord, etc.) report your credit accurately.
Aspects of consumer law that can make a case
Some aspects of consumer law that can cause a case to require litigation are typically cases that threaten a consumer’s financial security. For example, some forms of consumer violations leading to litigation can be, unfair debt collection, housing discrimination, predatory lending practices, credit reporting and unfair and deceptive acts or practices. Due to door-to-door solicitations and sales, telemarketing and the internet, these types of consumer breaches are common
