Whenever a consumer purchases something and agrees to the terms of the transaction, even just by clicking "yes" when downloading software, a legal agreement has been made. Illinois consumer laws and regulations are designed to protect consumers from being ripped off, whether it's a deceptive trade practice or an unsafe product. Consumer laws also protect people from identity theft and other crimes that prey on consumers.
