Massachusetts Consumer Laws
Consumer laws include statutes that protect consumers from unscrupulous business practices and the forces of the marketplace in general. And many business, real estate, and criminal laws are intended to protect consumers as well, such as homestead protection laws and prohibitions on telemarketing fraud. Massachusetts consumer laws prohibit and criminalize identity theft and pyramid schemes, while protecting consumers from the hardship of purchasing a "lemon," which is a new automobile with recurring problems.
