Take a stand against scams
Fraud is now at record levels, with more than five million scams costing Brits a mind-boggling £9bn each year. While there are sensible steps we can all take to protect ourselves, an unfair burden has been placed on the public. Even the savviest of people can be scammed. It’s important that the government and businesses take their responsibilities seriously and step up to safeguard us all. Which? found that the majority of people (85%) think companies must take an equal or greater responsibility in protecting us from online scams. This and the results of our own investigations are why we're calling on the government to investigate how seriously companies take their responsibility to protect customers from scams.
Big supermarkets: Put an end to misleading pricing
From dodgy multibuys to shrinking products, Which? has found supermarkets using misleading pricing tactics to manipulate our spending. That’s why we made a super-complaint to the regulator asking them to put an end to misleading pricing tactics. Sign our petition to show your support.
Fuel tests we can trust
Volkswagen has come under fire for cheating official car pollution tests. Rigging the tests enabled them to hide the fact that their diesel cars produce pollution up to 40 times the legal limit in the US. Officials have admitted that 1.2million Volkswagen, Audi, Skoda and Seat diesel vehicles in the UK are affected. Many customers are concerned that the car they bought is neither as clean or green as they were told. Which? are calling for the introduction of new fuel emissions and economy tests that we can trust. We also want an independent investigation into the VW scandal and action to make sure that affected customers can get redress. Our campaign has been backed by over 65,000 people. We’ve already convinced other car manufacturers to deny their involvement in rigging tests and the UK Boss of VW to admit that information for customers must improve. Are you affected? Help us keep the pressure on Volkswagen and the Government by signing our petition today.
Help Which? deliver fair energy prices
Over 200,000 people have backed Which?’s campaign for fair energy prices. Our campaigning helped trigger the Competition & Markets Authority (CMA) investigation into the UK energy market. That investigation has confirmed what we all suspected – most people are paying too much for energy. The CMA found that UK households are overpaying by up to £160 a year and that the poorest households are most likely to be affected. Between 2009 and 2013 customers were collectively charged £1.2billion a year more than they would have in a competitive market. The CMA will publish its proposals to tackle this later this year. We want to keep up the pressure on the CMA to deliver action that will help produce fair energy prices for customers. You can help us do that by signing our petition today.
