Consumer Protection and Antitrust Unit Complaints

How to file a consumer complaint with the Wyoming Attorney General

Read carefully before submitting a consumer complaint:

Please try to resolve your complaint with the business or person directly. Many consumer complaints result from broken communications and can often be resolved with a letter or phone call from the consumer. If you cannot resolve the complaint, you may consider completing the consumer complaint form at the link below.

What happens after I file a consumer complaint?

While this office cannot investigate all complaints, it reviews and provides written responses to all properly filed consumer complaints. In some circumstances, the Attorney General may forward your complaint to the business complained against and request a written response from the business. All communication with consumers and businesses is handled in writing. Upon receiving a response from the business, our office will notify you of the response. If we do not receive a response, we will also notify you.
