Online sellers still deceive

(Partial report of first quarter 2013)

(Prague, May 30, 2013) The control activities of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority have increasingly more focused on online retailers. During the first quarter of 2013, the officers monitored and subsequently checked 376 e-shops and found breaches in 76% of them. “The number of e-shops and amounts of their profits increases. However, the low legal literacy of sellers increases very slowly in relation to compliance with law and fulfilment of the obligations towards consumers. Our officers have repeatedly detected numerous deficiencies. If the situation does not change, it will be necessary to take appropriate actions in the frame of consumer rights protection,” the Director General of the CTIA Vladimír Velčovský said after having evaluated the results of the controls.
