StopFraudColorado.gov Microsite Will Help Coloradans Avoid and Report Fraud

DENVER—One of the most important missions of the Colorado Attorney General’s Office is protecting Colorado consumers and businesses from dishonest advertising and unscrupulous businesses. Consumer protection issues have long been the most “clicked through” part of the office’s website. So to emphasize its consumer-protection outreach and to meet the demand for timely and credible information on scams and help victims, Attorney General John Suthers today announced the launch of a new microsite, StopFraudColorado.gov.

DENVER—Colorado Attorney General John Suthers today issued two composite reports on Colorado’s calendar year 2013 subprime consumer lending activity. The reports contain data on 250 companies at 749 licensed locations engaged in deferred deposit or “payday” loan and traditional supervised loan activity. The total volume of supervised lending overall significantly increased due in large part to increased servicing activity with a lessor increase in origination activity.

DENVER – The Colorado Attorney General’s Office today announced that Solicitor General Dan Domenico will present oral arguments on Monday before the United States Supreme Court in the Direct Marketing Association v Brohl (No. 13-1032).
