Ergo baby is jut one company that has been effected by someone braking the Consumer
The Consumer Guarantees Act is hear to protect us and to make sure that us Consumers don't get ripped of by the retailers and businesses.
bellow i will tell you about just one example of the Consumer Guarantees Act being broken
by a fake company and how it has effected the Consumer and business.
one of the rights that has been broken was that consumers have the right to expect that
goods they purchase from a trader are of an acceptable quality. This right was when the buckle
on the baby carrier wouldn't hold pressure. The consumer was effected because she wasted her
Money on something that doesn't even work and is unsafe to use.
Another right that has been broken is that they goods they purchase from a trader are fit for particular purpose. The buckle was broken and this could have resulted in the baby falling out and possibly
Consumers also have the right to expect not to be misled or tricked by the seller.
This right was broken when then the fake company started selling fake baby carries.
The consequence of this is that the real ergo baby may lose their customers and money because people won't know if this company is a fake.
Another one of the Consumer Guarantees Act that has been broken was that the goods they purchase from a trader will bed safe to use. This right was broken when the baby carrier would not hold pressure.
Over all, nearly all of the Consumers Rights have been broken over one fake company selling a fake product. This has effected the consumer and business in many different ways. So make sure that when you buy something online, that the company is real!
