'Consumers be mindful of misleading tactics by retailers on Black Friday'
The National Consumer Commission (NCC) has warned retailers against using misleading advertising tactics to lure consumers on Black Friday.
The Consumer Protection Act (CPA) made it prohibited conduct for any supplier to market any goods or services in a manner that is misleading, fraudulent or deceptive in any way, the commission says.
Speaking to Bongani Bingwa chats Consumer Commission spokesperson Phetho Ntaba to give more insight on what consumers can do during Black Friday.
