Door-to-door sales are still widespread and one of these involves the purchase of a purification plant, which is usually presented as useful for purifying dirty and contaminated water from slag, chlorine and carcinogenic substances that come out of our taps. homes. However, as the Consumers 24 association reminds us “water is a primary good and is supplied to us already purified and drinkable throughout the national territory”, which also highlights how “it is right that the water contains a correct quantity of salts and therefore a filtering system is not necessary “.
The same association, however, would have collected reports of cases in which some vendors, relying on citizens’ fears, would have exposed fictitious data on the incidence of cancer and cardiovascular diseases caused by harmful substances present in the water. A trap that a man – TA, residing in Castelnuovo del Garda – would have encountered, who received the visit of a representative of a company in the sector, with registered office in Palermo, who convinced the potential customer to purchase a purification device worth over 9 thousand euros.
After the signing of the binding contract, when the withdrawal terms resulted from the contract expired, the victim had been induced to open a loan for the payment in installments because otherwise he would have had to pay the entire sum in a single solution. However the man, once he saw the installation of the device and, dissatisfied, realizing the wrong purchase, promptly contacted the Consumers Association 24. The recent intervention of the latter was decisive, which, verifying that the terms of withdrawal of cancellation of the loan were not in fact elapsed and that the main contract was based on an object of questionable utility that would have effectively rendered the negotiating agreement void, it managed to reach a settlement and balance agreement: with few hundreds of euros the water treatment plant was returned and the loan agreement canceled.
