Wisconsin Consumer Act
The Wisconsin Consumer Act provides broad protections and remedies to consumers and debtors. The WCA requires merchants and creditors to include certain terms and conditions in consumer contracts, prohibits the inclusion of deceptive and abusive terms, and otherwise regulates unfair or underhanded business and debt collection practices. The WCA is a fee-shifting statute, meaning successful plaintiffs can recover the costs of their attorney fees from the creditor who violated the law.

The Deceptive Trade Practices Act prohibits businesses and private sellers from making untrue, deceptive or misleading representations in the sale of goods or services to members of the public. To establish a claim, the plaintiff must prove that: 1) the defendant made a representation to a member of the public with the intent to sell goods; 2) the representation was untrue, deceptive, or misleading; and 3) the representation caused the plaintiff to suffer monetary loss.
