The Division of Marketing Practices

The Division of Marketing Practices enforces federal consumer protection laws by filing actions in federal district court on behalf of the commission to stop scams, prevent scam artists from repeating their fraudulent schemes in the future, freeze assets, and obtain compensation for scam victims. The division also is responsible for enforcement of the Telemarketing Sales Rule, which prohibits deceptive sales pitches and protects consumers from abusive, unwanted, and late-night sales calls, the 900 Number Rule, which requires sellers of pay-per-call (900 numbers) to clearly disclose the price of services, and the Funeral Rule, which requires funeral directors to disclose price and other information about their services to consumers.
