When you buy a car, do you think it’s a luxury or a necessity?
If you’re an Uber driver, you may not know the difference, and you probably won’t care.
The company is trying to take the pressure off people buying cars, and making them think twice about buying from a fake news outlet.
When you buy an Uber, do they think it has to be a luxury car?
When you subscribe to a social media news outlet, do your followers expect you to spend thousands on subscriptions?
When someone asks for a discount on a product, do people expect you spend that on a fake discount?
When an advertisement is being placed in a local newspaper, do the readers expect you not to share the ad on social media?
If a car is a necessity, does it have to be manufactured or sourced from China?
When your phone is a cheap piece of junk, will you want to use the phone to talk to your friends and family?
If you have ever purchased a car online, or used a fake credit card to pay for it, you’ve probably noticed that the information on the car itself is often misleading.
Fake credit cards, often in the form of a credit card number, often claim to be valid, and often claim that the card is legitimate.
It can also claim to have a pre-paid balance.
And sometimes, when a credit line is being taken out, the card may claim to not be taken out.
But now, for the first time, there is a way to detect if a credit statement is a scam.
The Australian Consumer Law Reform (ACLR) Taskforce, headed by the ACCC’s chief legal officer, Mark Wilson, has issued a report calling for an “international standard of proof” to be used in consumer credit reporting.
That standard, which would allow consumers to report fraud by comparing their credit score against a “red flag” of fraud that would be set by a reputable credit reporting agency, has been used in the UK, Australia and other countries.
But there is no international standard for consumer credit reports, and there are concerns that the standards are often too lax.
“I think there is an expectation of fairness, but also a belief that a credit score is somehow predictive of future creditworthiness,” said Wilson.
Consumer groups say that the real problem is that people are buying things on credit, without a credit history.
The consumer rights organisation The Fair Trading Association said that people often buy things on the basis of an online store or a mobile app.
“[They’re] not doing their due diligence and they don’t know what they’re buying,” said the association’s head of consumer affairs, Kate Murphy.
“It’s not like a car that is advertised as a car without having an owner or any other history of owning the vehicle.”
Ms Murphy said consumers were often buying things that have not been verified by a credit bureau, or the companies that are actually making them.
“In the past, people have bought things online that have never been verified, or that haven’t been vetted by the credit bureau,” she said.
A credit bureau could not be reached for comment.
And consumers can be deceived by misleading offers on a credit report.
This week, the ACCE’s consumer affairs manager, David McQuarrie, published an analysis of online marketplace listings and found that there were about 70,000 listings that included a “sell now” link that would give consumers the option of making a purchase and paying immediately.
But he said there were a number of other misleading offers that consumers could click on.
“The way to verify that is to look at whether it’s actually genuine, or whether it is an advertisement,” McQuarsie said.
“So for example, if you see a ‘buy now’ button that is not really an offer, but it’s an advertisement, it’s likely that the person who is selling is not actually going to be able to verify the offer.”
Consumer watchdog group Choice said the report did not give consumers a way of telling whether the offer was genuine.
Choice also said that consumers were not able to tell whether the price they were looking at was genuine, because it is often advertised as the price on the internet.
However, Choice also found that, if the advertised price is more than twice the retail price, it is a deceptive practice, as the seller would not be able confirm that the price is correct.
“If a car or property is advertised on the web and it’s being advertised at the same price as a retail sale, the fact that it’s advertised for less than the retail sale does not mean it’s genuine,” Choice said.
“You’d need to check to see if it’s really for a fair price.”
In a statement to the ABC, the ABC said it had contacted all the credit reporting agencies involved in the study and had asked them to explain why they did not verify the offers on their reports.
“We also contacted the major credit bureaus and have asked
