Warning against new tricks related to loans over the phone!

(Prague, August 9, 2013) The Czech Trade Inspection Authority warns consumers against advertisements and offers of credit contracts concluded over the phone. Lately, the CTIA has investigated several submissions not only from consumers but also from the Police of the Czech Republic to who citizens turned to and asked for help. “This is a serious warning,” Vladimír Velčovský, the Director General of the Czech Trade Inspection Authority alerts. “In case that the phone operator forwards you to a telephone line charged with a high tariff, you shall immediately quit the negotiation. If you call such number, you will not receive the required amount, but rather a phone bill amounting to tens of thousands CZK which makes your financial situation even more difficult!”

The complete press release is available in the attachment.
