The Fijian Competition and Consumer Commission says they will investigate a complaint by a member of the Fiji Red Cross Society about an individual online who was engaged in unethical practices.
CEO, Joel Abraham says they found out that an advertisement run by a page called YourInvited on Instagram claimed to be giving $10 from their product sale towards the Red Cross relief fund – however, according to the Fiji Red Cross Society, there was no such relief fund campaign organized by them.
Abraham says hoaxes, misinformation, the vilification of COVID-19 positive cases and sharing of leaked personal data on contact tracing are other things that Fijians need to be careful about.
He is urging people to get their information from verified sources.
Abraham says he assures Fijians that FCCC is being vigilant when it comes to monitoring things on the ground and is taking the necessary action.
