"All businesses that tradewith consumers need to be up to speed with the amendments to theConsumer Protection from Unfair Commercial Practices Regulations asthey expose those who fall foul of these regulations tosignificantly increased financial risks. It is bad enough tobe convicted and fined but it will add 'insult to injury' to thenhave to pay the consumer damages as well"
