The Cuyahoga County Department of Consumer Affairs can help if you:

  • Are charged the wrong price at the register
  • Have a problem with a store or business you can’t resolve on your own
  • Need resources to manage your budget or build credit
  • Want to report or receive alerts about scams
  • Have consumer questions or complaints

Our Consumer Protection Division mediates consumer complaints against businesses;  lets consumers and business owners know about consumer protection laws;  issues alerts about unfair sales tactics and scams; and helps consumers find information they need to shore up their finances.

Our Weights and Measures Division protects consumers by inspecting weights and measures throughout the county to make sure they’re accurate.  Look for current Cuyahoga County Weights and Measures seals on gas pumps, scales used in sales, and timed devices including Laundromat dryers and air dispensers. In addition to sealing scales, the division periodically conducts sweeps to check sales prices or packaging.
