Attorney General Roy Cooper and his Consumer Protection Division protect North Carolinians from unfair and deceptive trade practices.  Through court orders and settlements, Cooper has won millions of dollars from wrongdoers to help North Carolina consumers.  Funds have been used in the past to educate consumers, support local food banks, help struggling homeowners, and give patients access to needed medicines.

  • Health care, including projects on general health care, prescription drug abuse, and mental illness.
  • Senior fraud, including projects to reduce fraud that targets seniors and strengthen consumer protections for the elderly.
  • Military/Veteran fraud, including projects that provide training, support and other services to reduce fraud that targets active military and veterans.
