The OFT has now acted to revoke the trading licenses of two traders running related businesses under the names ABM Mobility, A.B.M., Phoenix 1000, Eurostar, Star Enterprises and Phoenix Enterprises. They were found to be breaching consumer protection legislation including using aggressive sales techniques, despite warnings from Trading Standards.
Jake said: “I am pleased to see that the OFT has followed through on its report from last year and is actively working to protect consumers from aggressive and irresponsible selling. These consumers are often quite vulnerable members of society. I would again like to warn people to be aware of the risks of doorstep sellers. They may be able to purchase goods at a cheaper price elsewhere.”
