Protecting Consumers

The Department of Law is committed to holding irresponsible businesses and individuals accountable when they harm Colorado consumers. By so doing, we support a business environment that fosters entrepreneurship, celebrates responsible business practices, and does not allow those who play by the rules to be unfairly disadvantaged compared to unscrupulous actors.

The Stop Fraud Colorado program helps prevent consumers and businesses from becoming victims of fraud by providing resources in English and Spanish to identify and report cases of fraudulent, deceptive, or unfair behavior. Whether dealing with robocalls or complex student loan scams, citizen reports and consumer education efforts are key to stopping fraudulent activities before they can spread.

In the 2019 legislative session, a bipartisan update—the first in decades—to the Colorado Consumer Protection Act provided the Department with stronger tools to hold bad actors accountable, closing loopholes that allowed some irresponsible businesses and individuals to get away with scams. The Department is committed to excellence in enforcing our consumer protection and antitrust laws that benefit Colorado consumers.
