Five more traders have been charged for abusing the Homes and Farms CARE initiative.
The traders have been charged for unacceptable conduct, failure to mark prices, failure to furnish information, overcharging, false or misleading representation and accepting payment without being able to supply.
Four traders were from the Western Division and one in the North.
The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission received complaints from the public who are recipients of the programme that certain traders were engaging in unethical business practices.
FCCC is actively investigating all cases relating to the CARE initiative and more traders may be charged if found to be contravening provisions of the FCCC Act 2010.
The Commission is waring traders who are involved under the Homes and Farms CARE to act ethically and engage in fair business practices ensuring consumers get their money’s worth.
