The Michigan Consumer Protection Act was created to prohibit unfair trade practices and to provide remedies and compensation to affected consumers.
- The law considers it unlawful to use of false or wrong certification of goods for sales.
- Selling second hand, altered or deteriorated goods as new is also illegal as per Section (d) under the Act.
- Soliciting repair or replacement when it is not required or necessary is also prohibited by section 3 (j) of the Act.
- Section 3(s) makes the omission as illegal to state any material fact which will deceive the consumer or might alter his buying decision.
