China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission Issues Warning About Excessive Lending and Marketing Induction
At present, personal consumer credit services such as credit cards and micro-credit are deeply bound with various consumption scenarios, which to a certain extent facilitates life and reduces the immediate payment pressure. However, if consumers frequently and repeatedly use consumer credit, it will easily lead to risks such as excessive debt and credit damage.
In recent years, there have been complaints from consumers about excessive credit extension, high installment fees, violent collection, and so on. In addition, some merchants induce consumers to prepay fees by means of loans or overdrafts and then fail to continue operating for various reasons, resulting in consumers not being able to enjoy the services they have already purchased and facing repayment pressure and difficulties in safeguarding their rights.
On March 14th, the Consumer Rights Protection Bureau of China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission released the second consumer risk warning in 2022, reminding consumers to stay away from the marketing trap of excessive lending and prevent excessive credit risks. (Source: CBIRC)
