Florida Consumer Law

In Florida, the mini-FTC act is Fla. Stat. § 501.201–13.  Under this legislation, the state attorney or the Department of Legal Affairs has a cause of action when a person performs unfair methods of competition, unconscionable acts or practices, or unfair or deceptive acts or practices in the conduct of any trade or commerce. Persons found guilty of such violations are subject to injunction, actual damages, or declaratory judgment. They are also liable for fines of up to $10,000 per violation.
