In these tough economic times, we know that every dollar you spend is precious. The Government of the District of Columbia wants to be sure you are getting exactly what you pay for. Operating under the authority of the DC Consumer Protection Procedures Act (DC Code § 28-3900-3913), the Consumer Protection Unit is aggressively pursuing businesses who are trying to make a quick buck at the expense of District residents. Here residents and visitors of the District can get consumer protection information, research businesses, file a complaint, as well as find links to other helpful offices and information.
