State and federal laws protect consumers against unfair or deceptive business acts and practices. These laws exist to curb abusive practices by credit card companies, credit reporting agencies, debt collectors, and lending institutions, to name a few. In addition to the Minnesota Consumer Fraud Act, federal laws such as the Fair Credit Reporting Act (“FCRA”) , the Equal Credit Opportunity Act (“ECOA”), the Fair Credit Billing Act (“FCBA”), the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (“FDCPA”), and the Telephone Consumer Protection Act (“TCPA”) provide legal recourse to victims of fraudulent and misleading business practices.
