Following the information published on the website of the department, the FAS experts have conducted an audit of an exterior ad of the bank for a no-guarantor loan as part of the May 2015 country-wide checkup campaign.
The committee concluded that the advertisement names the service – the no-guarantor loan – but not the subject offering it, and provides no information on other features that affect the payments the bank clients will have to make.
As a result, Express-Volga bank was instructed to rectify the violations of advertisement legislation.
Moreover, the case may also become a basis for an court review of an administrative violation of Part 1, art 14.3 of the Administrative Offences Code, titled “Violating the Legislation on Advertising.”
