(a)   No supplier shall with knowledge commit a deceptive or unfair act or practice in connection with a consumer transaction. Such deceptive act or practice by a supplier violates this section whether it occurs before, during or after the transaction.
   (b)   Without limiting the scope of the foregoing, an act, or practice of a supplier in representing any of the following is deceptive or unfair:
      (1)   That the subject of a consumer transaction has sponsorship, approval, performance characteristics, accessories, uses or benefits it does not have;
      (2)   That the subject of a consumer transaction is of a particular standard, quality, grade, style, prescription or model, if it is not;
      (3)   That the subject of a consumer transaction is new, or unused, if it is not;
      (4)   That the subject of a consumer transaction is available to the consumer for a reason that does not exist;
      (5)   That the subject of a consumer transaction has been supplied in accordance with a previous representation, if it has not, except that the act of a supplier in furnishing similar merchandise of equal or greater value as a good faith substitute does not violate this section;
      (6)   That the subject of a consumer transaction will be supplied in greater quantity, weight or volume than it contains or is made up of, or than the supplier will deliver, does deliver or intends to deliver;
      (7)   That replacement or repair is needed, if it is not;
      (8)   That a specific price advantage exists, if it does not;
      (9)   That the supplier has a sponsorship, approval, or affiliation he does not have;
      (10)   That a consumer transaction involves or does not involve a warranty, a disclaimer of warranties, particular warranty terms, or other rights, remedies or obligations if the representation is false;
      (11)   That goods or services will be supplied at an estimated price given to the consumer to induce the transaction when in fact the actual charges exceed the estimate by more than ten percent (10%), unless prior approval to exceed the estimate is given to the supplier by the consumer;
      (12)   That periodic payments for consumer goods may be easily made by a consumer when the supplier sets high payments in order to promote a default;
      (13)   That advertised goods and services are available when the supplier did not sell them as advertised;
      (14)   That advertised goods and services are available when the supplier did not intend to supply for a reasonably expectable public demand unless the advertisement disclosed a limitation of quantity;
      (15)   That a consumer will receive a rebate, discount or other benefit as an inducement for entering into a consumer transaction in return for giving the supplier the names of prospective consumers, or otherwise helping the supplier to enter into consumer transactions, if earning the benefit is contingent upon an event occurring after the consumer enters into the transaction;
      (16)   That a salesman, representative or agent has authority to negotiate the final terms of a transaction with the consumer when no such authority exists;
      (17)   That the consumer transaction confers or involves rights, remedies or obligations that it does not have or involve or which are prohibited by law. (Ord. 28-1985. Passed 8-5-85.)
