Consumer Protection Laws

Consumers enter into transactions to purchase goods or services every day. These transactions are considered legally binding contracts because consideration (motive to enter into a contract) is being given on both sides; the merchant is providing the product and the consumer is agreeing to pay, whether the payment be in the form of cash or credit.
