The Yolo County District Attorney's Office Consumer Fraud & Environmental Protection Division (CFEPD) protects consumers and honest businesses from unfair business practices, ranging from deceptive sales pitches to false advertising by national corporations. It also serves to protect the environment and consequently, the health and safety of Yolo County's citizens. Consumer fraud is a preventable crime. By learning about current scams and rip-offs in the marketplace and by following basic tips on smart consumer behavior, you can protect yourself and help us protect all of the consumers of Yolo County. Environmental crimes are serious crimes and need to be reported, investigated and prosecuted. Citizens can be instrumental in helping the CFEPD meet this goal.
