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 any other place other than the usual 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.
