Case # 01:
On March 18, 2015, Komal purchased a pair of bangles and a single bangle from a jeweler in Lahore. They were declared to be of 22 carat gold purity and accordingly she was charged for gold of 22 carat purity plus an additional amount as making charges. After the purchase, the bangles were kept in her locker. On Eid-ul-fitar and at the marriage of a relative, her daughter used the bangles. By coincidence, the complainant came across the X-ray gold testing facility of Royal Jewelers who were offering to check the purity of gold through an X-ray test which was non-destructive. Out of sheer curiosity, she had the bangles tested and to her utter disbelief, found out that they were of less than 17 carat purity and not 22 carat, as had been represented at the time of the sale. Shaken by this discovery, she immediately visited the jeweler from whom she had bought the bangles along with the cash memo. He refused to accept her claim and her efforts to reason with him were in vain. So she came to the Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA) who, with the help of its Legal Cell, drafted a complaint for her to file in the Consumer Court. A notice was sent to the jeweler giving him a last chance to settle the matter before the Consumer Court was moved.
Case # 02:
Mrs. Aniqa drew two cheques for Rs. 50,000 each on his Bank Savings A/c on January 20, 2015. The money was to be transferred to a Fixed Deposit A/c but, after some time, she found that a Fixed Deposit had not been made. On contacting the bank, she was shocked to learn that the amount had instead been transferred to Bank’s Prudential Life Insurance policy without his consent or any intimation. Several complaints only yielded false assurances and so she approached the Consumer Financial Protection Agency (CFPA) on 13th November, 2015.
