Ohio Consumer Sales Practice Act

The Ohio Consumer Sales Practices Act (CSPA) is a law that is interpreted very broadly to protect Ohioans from unfair or deceptive acts or practices in connection with consumer transactions.  The law identifies certain practices as deceptive, while allowing for more practices to be declared deceptive.

Among the practices named in the law as deceptive, certain practices occur more frequently than others.  These include items represented as new or unused, when in fact they are used; that repair or replacement is necessary, when in fact it is not; that a specific price “advantage” exists, when it fact it does not; or a false claim that a warranty is or is not available.

If this law has been violated, you may be able to rescind the contract, recover your damages including up to $5,000 in non-economic damages, plus attorney fees.
