Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA)
The Florida Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act (FDUTPA) was passed in 1973 in Florida to protect consumers and offer protections against unfair collection practices by creditors. Today, consumers are protected from a variety of harassing actions. The FDUTPA also protects consumers and businesses from additional deceptive or unconscionable acts relating to all kinds of trade and commerce. It is a very broad law.
If you are facing mortgage foreclosure, struggling with overwhelming debt and seeking relief from creditor harassment, the Deceptive and Unfair Trade Practices Act may provide the relief you need.
