MA has one of the strongest consumer protection laws in the US. Under MA General Laws Section 93A, you could subject them to up to triple damages plus attorney's fees for unfair and deceptive business practices if they did not sell you an item as they described it and thus committed misrepresentation. Under Section 93A you MUST send them a warning letter before you can sue for triple damages and attorney's fees.
Here is a sample 93A letter
to send them. if they refuse to refund you for their misrepresented item, then you could seek to sue them for damages since they chose to do business in MA you would seek to have the MA laws applied against them when suing them under the choice of law rules in the state where they are located.
