Govt to fight fraud in TV shopping programs, MoC says

The government will launch a seven-month campaign this December to combat fraud and other irregularities in television shopping programs, according to a statement jointly released by the Ministry of Commerce, Ministry of Industry and Information Technology and five other government agencies late Wednesday. Many TV shopping commercials contain misleading information or sell pirated goods, the statement said, adding that such irregularities have seriously infringed on consumer rights while undermining the credibility of TV broadcasters. The government pledged to strengthen regulation of TV shopping programs.
