Which? response as No 10 warns of ‘further action’ against Covid-19 profiteers

Sue Davies, Head of Consumer Protection at Which?, said:

“We’ve found online marketplaces, such as eBay and Amazon, are rife with unscrupulous sellers exploiting people by selling essential items at ridiculously inflated prices.

“While these companies have put additional measures in place they must make good on their pledges to stamp out coronavirus profiteering.

“The government, working with the CMA, must hold them to account and we look forward to seeing it take strong action to keep the price of vital goods reasonable during this difficult time.”
