The Bureau of Consumer Protection is committed to protecting Wisconsin consumers and businesses. Because the first line of defense against fraud is knowledge, we provide information on Wisconsin’s consumer laws and how to identify, stop and avoid fraud.
One way the Bureau of Consumer Protection educates consumers is by giving free presentations to the public through webinars and at workshops, conferences, and stand-alone events. The Bureau presents to a wide range of groups including business and professional organizations, law enforcement agencies, seniors, students, military members, and general consumers on the following topics:
General consumer protection
Current scams and frauds
Scams that target seniors
ID theft and privacy protection
Data breaches: best practices to safeguard information
Scams that target military members and their families
