Dana Nessel, Michigan Attorney General

With the arrival of the holidays, Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel is launching her annual campaign to protect consumers

Attorney General Nessel says Michigan consumers deserve, quote, “peace of mind” that they won’t fall prey to scammers or have their personal and financial information stolen.

The AG’s website will promote ways to avoid holiday season scams, with a focus on the big shopping and giving days like Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday. Nessel will also post information to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

The department offers a charity database to verify non-profits. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation also has a Support Local campaign to help people shop and eat at local businesses. And, consumer complaints can be filed at the Attorney General’s website.
