situations, the County Attorney's Office cannot be involved, however, the Attorney General's Consumer Protection Division may
be able to provide some advice, (612) 296-3353.
Some acts of consumer fraud are criminal and can be reported to a law enforcement agency as well. However, an initial contact
with the Consumer Protection Division of the Attorney General's Office may help an individual determine whether or not a
criminal investigation might be of any help.
