The company was misleading customers. He will pay a fine of 2.3 million

As indicated by UOKiK in the announcement, Expectes invited consumers to shows under the pretext of participation in the action “Poland for Entrepreneurs” and promised gifts for attending meetings. “In fact, the campaign did not exist and the gifts were not free,” it was written. It was indicated that the President of UOKiK, Tomasz Chróstny, imposed a fine of over PLN 2.3 million on the company for misleading consumers and ordered the questioned practices to be discontinued immediately.

It was explained that the company’s telemarketers called consumers claiming to be representatives of the Social Advertising Foundation and invited them to a presentation as part of the “Poland for entrepreneurs” campaign aimed at saving jobs. In fact, there is neither the Foundation for Social Advertising nor the campaign “Poland for Entrepreneurs”.

– Expectes misled consumers and tempted them with gifts to make them come to the show and buy the products offered there (household appliances). What is particularly glaring is the fact that in conversations with consumers, telemarketers hid the true identity of the entrepreneur – said Tomasz Chróstny, President of the Office of Competition and Consumer Protection.
