In recent years, the interest in consumer-related issues has grown tremendously, fueled by growing unemployment, high foreclosure rates, credit card interest rate increases and a recession more sweeping than anything seen in more than a generation. Unfortunately, when readers look for a text to explain these issues, they are too often confronted with case books that have more application to law school curricula than to a college-level course. This book fills the need for a well-written text on consumer law and consumer protection.
Covering topics as diverse as protecting a person's credit rating to avoiding predatory lending, Consumer Law & Protection explains the law and gives readers the tools that they need to protect themselves from telemarketers, unscrupulous debt collectors and network marketing schemes, to name only a few of the topics covered in the book.
