The CPU enforces civil and criminal laws that prohibit fraud or deception in consumer transactions, which can range from purchasing a cell phone from a national company to engaging a local contractor to repair your home. They include sales that occur online, over the phone or in person. The CPU also enforces laws related to data privacy, price-gouging in times of emergency and charitable solicitations.

How can I file a consumer complaint against a business or report a scam?
File a complaint with the Office of the Attorney General by downloading this form. Complete the form and email it to [email protected] with "Complaint" in the subject line. You may also attach any relevant documentation to your email. For more information, see https://www.oag.ok.gov/consumer-protection.
What information should I include with my complaint?
Please complete all portions of the complaint form and provide as detailed of a narrative as possible to describe the circumstances surrounding the transaction at issue. Please include additional pages if necessary. If you have supporting documentation that is relevant to your allegations, please include copies (not originals) with your complaint.
What happens to my complaint once it is submitted to the Consumer Protection Unit?
Your complaint will be reviewed by a consumer specialist and then forwarded to the business/individual you have named in the complaint. The business/individual will have 10 days to respond to the complaint. If the business/individual responds, our office will forward that response back to you to allow for additional response. Often, this written mediation process will resolve the complaint in a manner acceptable to both parties. When no resolution is reached, we will then determine whether the allegations warrant an investigation by our investigators and staff attorneys, or whether the complaint should be closed and the consumer advised to seek private legal advice.
Who do I contact for questions or concerns throughout the complaint process?
For information about your complaint, please call our office at 1-833-681-1895 and ask to speak to a consumer specialist. If your call is sent to voicemail, please leave a message.

Alternatively, you may also send us an email to or letter to 313 NE 21st St Oklahoma City, OK 73105.
I am not sure if my complaint is something you can help me with. Should I file my complaint anyway?
Yes. If the complaint is outside the jurisdiction of the CPU, we will get where it needs to go. Do not let doubts about the amount of money you spent, the time since the transaction occurred, where it occurred or any other factor deter you from filing a complaint.
