Unfair, Deceptive and Abusive Practices (UDAP)

Every state has a consumer protection statute broadly prohibiting deceptive practices. Many also prohibit unfair or unconscionable practices, and a few prohibit abusive practices. These UDAP statutes are consumers’ main protection against unscrupulous businesses and can provide victimized consumers with effective relief. NCLC works to preserve, strengthen, and enforce these important laws.
