The Consumer Protection Division (CPD) of Nebraska protects consumers from dubious trade practices and encourages fair competition among merchants.
- The division offers mediation services between aggrieved consumers and accused merchants for awarding justice to the deserving.
- The division also educates consumers on making wise buying decisions and to protect themselves from fraud and scams.
- The Nebraska Home Solicitation Sales Law provides time duration until the midnight of the third day from the transaction for a sale that was made at the residence or at any other place other than the normal place of business of the merchant. This law is also referred to as the “Three-Day cooling Off” Rule and is set up to provide the consumer enough time to arrive at a final decision.
