The Consumer Protection Section acts on behalf of Louisiana consumers at large when a business is operating unfairly or deceptively. However, we realize that individual disputes can arise in business transactions and that many problems may be resolved through improved communications. Our mediators will try to resolve disputes between an individual consumer and a business. Please read this information carefully before you file your dispute.

Our office handles disputes regarding: automobiles, telemarketing, landlord & tenant, credit issues, collection agencies, home improvement and construction, home appliances and furnishings, health clubs, travel, charitable solicitations, sweepstakes, work-at-home programs and multilevel marketing/business opportunities.

Our office does not handle disputes regarding: utility companies, cable companies, cellular telephones, insurance claims, elected or public officials, state or municipal agencies, child support claims, employee - employer disputes, or licensed professionals (doctors, dentist, attorneys, etc.). If we receive a dispute that we cannot handle, we will refer it to the proper agency.

We cannot act as your private attorney. If you need legal assistance, we will recommend that you contact a private attorney or legal aid organization. We cannot give legal advice or act as your private attorney. 

Once we receive your dispute, you will receive a letter from our office acknowledging receipt of your dispute form. Depending on the nature of the dispute, our review or investigation of the matter may take four weeks or longer.

Coming soon, the attorney's general office seeks to provide a mechanism by which to take online payments for collections.
