Attorney General Nessel wants to collect input from the public on recent power outages to better inform her consumer advocacy before the Michigan Public Service Commission.
Recently, she called on the two largest utility companies in the state to prioritize customers who dealt with extended power outages through automatic bill credits instead of an application process and the creation of a fund to assist displaced customers during significant power outages.
This holiday season, the Michigan Department of Attorney General's Consumer Protection team has compiled resources for all Michiganders as they prepare to shop or donate.
These resources include a series of consumer alerts - the 16 Days of Scams Calendar - with tips to safeguard your wallet.
Our pro-active holiday consumer campaign begins Nov. 26 and continues through Dec. 17.
Research, learn, protect yourself, and please have a safe holiday season!
The Consumer Protection team helps protect Michigan residents from bad actors who have one primary goal: to trick us out of our hard-earned money. As technology advances, they get more creative with their approach. They prey on anyone vulnerable - especially seniors.
Consumer Protection handles 10,000 consumer complaints each year, provides numerous educational resources online, and issues consumer alerts on scams, data breaches and any other consumer-related issue our residents should be aware of.
