    19 traders taken action against by Internal Trade Department

    The Internal Trade Department has taken legal action against 19 traders after finding they had been overpricing, cheating on measurements or using substandard packaging.

    Siripol Yodmuangchareon, director-general of the department, said Wednesday the traders were fined a total of Bt42,300. Ten of the traders were in upcountry areas and the rest in Bangkok. They were mainly found to have not shown the price of goods or had quoted prices that were too high.

    Illegal trading activities which hurt consumers would be subjected to serious punishment, he said. Consumers who want to file complaints against illegal trading practices can call the department direct on 1569.

    Damn, 19 traders were fined 42,300 Baht. now thats a little over $50.00 US. I bet that some of them had to borrow some money to pay that large a fine and will surely put most out of business.. 555
