The Federal Antimonopoly Service opened a case against Sberbank for alleged violation of the advertising law. This is indicated in the service message.

FAS opened a case against Sberbank for violation of the advertising law

The FAS found that in an advertisement for one of the credit institution’s offers, important information for the consumer (information on deposit income) was indicated in a “difficult-to-read font.”

The advertisement that caught the attention of the FAS was located in structures in Moscow. One of the users complained: he pointed out that the information about the 12% deposit rate was printed in large and visible font, unlike the additional information.

“Thus, consumers received incomplete information about all the conditions that determine the amount of investors’ income,” the service said in a telegram message.

In May last year, the FAS imposed a fine of 600 thousand rubles on Sberbank for advertising that misleads users. Then, the lender also placed important information about the loan in a hard-to-read font.
