Major tech reseller and retailer, MSY Technology, has given undertakings to the Federal Court not to make false or misleading representations on warranties, according to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC).
In a statement, the regulatory body said the undertakings would apply until any further orders are made pending action by the Federal Court.
In early November, the ACCC alleged MSY Technology sold computers, components, software and other tech products to customers around Australia while making a number of false or misleading representations about consumer warranty rights.
“The ACCC alleges that by making the representations, MSY and each of its related companies breached sections 52 and 53(g) of the Trade Practices Act 1974,” the statement said.
“The ACCC is now seeking final orders including declarations that MSY and each of its related companies breached the Act, injunctions, civil penalties, corrective advertising, costs and orders for MSY and each of its related companies to implement a trade practices compliance program.”
Although the case was originally set to be heard by Justice Perram in Sydney on November 16, it was subsequently scrapped. A scheduling conference is now set for December 7.
