As per Missouri Consumer Laws, The Office of the Attorney General is entrusted with the responsibility for providing remedy to consumers
who have been victimized by unfair or deceptive trade practices.
- The Missouri Merchandising Practices Act lays down the provisions and remedies for dishonest trade practices by merchants or individuals.
- The Attorney General functions as a fiduciary person between the consumer and the merchant to resolve grievances after due hearing of both the sides.
- After the hearing the Attorney General will award consumers with compensation or exchange of services where the merchant is found to be guilty.
- However, the Attorney General is not required to provide legal advice to consumers and also acts as a representative in the court.
