Illinois Consumer Fraud And Deceptive Businesses Practices Act
The Illinois Consumer Fraud and Deceptive Business Practices Act is commonly referred to as the Consumer Fraud Act. This statute is designed to protect consumers from deceptive business practices that may be used in the course of trade or commerce. There is also an advantage to filing under the Consumer Fraud Act as opposed to common law fraud, as the elements to state a cause of action are much simpler and cover a broader range of facts.
