AG Nessel Reissues Consumer Alerts in Response to Detroit-area Flooding
August 27, 2021
LANSING - Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is reminding Michigan residents - again - of important consumer alerts following another round of heavy downpours that prompted flash flooding in Metro Detroit Friday.
"Michigan residents have endured tremendous hardship due to severe weather in recent months, and unfortunately many in and around Detroit are once again dealing with flooding," Nessel said. "I want to remind everyone to do your research in the aftermath of any devastating situation. Our Consumer Protection team is committed to investigating complaints and I encourage people to contact our office if you believe someone is engaging fraudulent behavior."
Nessel is reminding people to research contractors if home repairs are needed before paying for a project and alerting drivers to beware of water-damaged vehicles being sold on the used car market. Additionally, in stances where towing is necessary, Nessel has a consumer alert on vehicle towing that explains the process to complain about unreasonable fees.
