Vigilance reiterated versus online marketing schemes
by Press release

SABANGAN, Mountain Province – Consumers have been told to be vigilant against unscrupulous businessmen especially online sellers during the launching of the Negosyo Center last Nov. 27.

Since social media has become a very common business platform nowadays, it had been the prime topic that was tackled during the launching.

“Consumers must be vigilant particularly on online businesses since there is no law yet to prohibit such marketing schemes and no law enacted yet for protection of online buyers,” Department of Trade and Industry-CAR representative Mimosa Regis said.

She said that in line with government’s agenda of upholding consumer rights, DTI continues to educate the public and make them well-informed consumers. Similarly, the DTI through their website urged consumers to be critically aware about the prices, usage and quality of products.

Regis said that the DTI, in cooperation with the Philippine National Police, is regularly monitoring business establishments in the locality. She said the agency destroys fake products, checks weighing scales, and discontinues the operation of fraudulent enterprises. She also discussed consumer rights and protection.

Regis said there are several areas where the public can participate in instigating legal business transactions. For solicitations in communities, she emphasized that barangay officials have the power to stop such suspicious undertakings. She also said that consumers can check on product mark stickers before buying.

The Import Commodity Clearance mark is for imported products and the Bureau of Philippine Standards sticker is for local products.

Other topics discussed during the launching were the advantages of having a Negosyo Center.

DTI Division Office representative Mabel Banggawan said the center will bring government services closer to small businesses in the locality. She said DTI assists in creating business names, they give trainings on business identification, self-assessment, entrepreneurial skills enhancement, and they assist in making project proposals for financing.

The launching ended with the signing of a memorandum of agreement.
