Did you know that simply clicking "yes" on a customer agreement when buying something online is the same as signing a contract? Consumer laws generally are meant to protect the average consumer from deceptive business practices, dangerous products, or other problems; but they also protect businesses from liability. This category also includes laws protecting consumers from cyber crimes like phishing and identity theft. Federal and state laws address these matters.
