Deceptive Trade Practices

Deceptive Trade Practices

It is a violation of Iowa law for a business to advertise or sell products or services by using false or deceptive representations. Examples include auto dealers who misrepresent a buyer’s income to obtain financing and make a sale or who fail to disclose material facts concerning the product–such as failure to disclose an automobile was previously wrecked. The elderly, young people and minorities are frequent victims of deceptive trade practices. There are some exceptions, because groups with powerful lobbyists were exempted from the statue. Credit card banks for example. Kind of like exempting Osama Bin Laden from the War on Terror.
