Which? response to CMA statement on sales and pricing practices during coronavirus outbreak

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

“Unscrupulous sellers are trying to cash in on coronavirus fears and while we’ve seen some websites like Amazon taking action to protect consumers from price gouging, similar listings are reappearing all the time.

“This problem is highlighting how a lack of effective checks and controls creates a perfect environment for scams and rip-offs, so it is good to see the CMA is ready to take strong action.”
