The European Commission launched a new platform to help consumers and traders solve online disputes over a purchase made online.
One day a Polish consumer found in his mailbox mysterious package addressed by the Austrian trader. The consignment contained samples of cosmetics. Surprised consumer considered that this is a form of advertising, because he has never purchased such goods. His surprise was even bigger when after a few weeks received a bill for allegedly "bought" cosmetics. Initially, he ignored it but later kept coming new invoices issued for higher and higher amounts. The consumer found the situation irratonal, but the trader referred the case to the debt collection company which sent another letter to him. Ultimately, the amount of consumer debt was more than 500 PLN (around 115 EUR).
If in the course of the conducted case, the ECC encounters collective cross-border infringement of the consumers interests, reports it to the CPC-Net (network of consumer protection authorities of the EU Member States). So it was in the case of a consumer who was traveling with Hungarian airlines.
