Warning over health check-up offers
(09-16 17:06)

The Consumer Council has warned people to be wary of bargains offered by telemarketers -- after the number of complaints about health check-ups shot up by nearly 80 percent.
The watchdog says telemarketers often resort to aggressive tactics, bordering on 'false trade descriptions' or 'misleading omissions' -- two new offenses under the amended Trade Descriptions Ordinance. --RTHK
