Understanding The Missouri Merchandising Practices Act
Often referred to as Missouri’s consumer protection statute, the Missouri Merchandising Practices Act (MMPA) is designed to protect consumers from untruthful, misleading and unfair business practices. According to the law (section 407.020 R.S.Mo.), any act of fraud, false promise, misrepresentation, false pretense, unfair practice, or the omission or suppression of information in connection with the sale or advertisement of a product or service is considered illegal.

For many people, interpreting the law is a job best left to an experienced attorney.

Whether you are a private individual or a small-business owner who purchased vehicles or other products for commercial use, the MMPA, the KCPA and federal legislation, such as the Uniform Commercial Code and the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act, can offer protections and opportunities to recover compensation.
