Deceptive Trade Practices
Trade practices are regulated in part by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The FTC has stated that deceptive trade practices are those that offend public policy established by common law and statute. In short, deceptive trade practices are unethical or fraudulent actions that substantially injure consumers or business competitors. Even if such deception is unintentional, the law allows consumers legal and equitable relief. Possible causes of action include:
- False advertising
- Inaccurate pricing
- Distorting credit or payment terms
