  1. More answers Be careful, senior!

    Be careful, senior! ― the UOKiK’s campaign aimed at warning consumers against unfair practices of some entrepreneurs while concluding off-premises contracts, i.e. during presentations or at the consumer’s place of residence. The problem considers the purchase of cooking equipment, linen and paramedical products as well as the sale of telecommunications, gas and energy services. Very often consumers – primarily the elderly – are misled and as a result they bear serious financial losses by incurring financial commitments or paying contractual penalty for breaking the contract with the existing provider of services.

    The campaign was launched on 15 March 2018.

    Educational materials consisted of two spots paying attention to the risk and informing about the right to withdraw from the contract concluded off-premises. They also encourage to take advantage of free of charge legal aid.
