Advertisements offering work from home opportunities are now illegal, said the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) on Wednesday.
The ASA welcomed the regulation, which was issued by the department of trade and industry.
"The regulation makes various work from home 'opportunities' illegal. These include opportunities to 'fill envelopes' and 'type labels' - two scams against which the ASA has issued various rulings," said the ASA in a statement.
"Consumers are reminded that if they see ads of this type, they can lodge complaints with the ASA on [email protected] or fax 011-781-1616." - Sapa
