Consumer Protection

The Office of the Attorney General is pleased to provide summary tips and resources for consumers and businesses alike on many of West Virginia's consumer protection laws. This page is designed to be a one-stop resource for information about how consumers can protect themselves, where to go for help from the Office's Consumer Protection Division, and how to avoid the latest scams.
