The Commerce Commission shows some rare wit today as it warns consumers about the vagaries of on line IQ quizes...

Commerce Commission Director of Fair Trading, Adrian Sparrow said, “Many complainants felt misled about this continuing text subscription. However, if terms and conditions are clearly displayed on the website, as is the case on the sites the Commission has examined, it is really a matter for the consumer to make an informed decision.”

“If you want to check your IQ, the first test you should pass is knowing to read the terms and conditions and fully understand what you are entering into,” said Mr Sparrow.

Funny thing is we have worked with Mr Sparrow and we never thought he was capable of such dry toast wit.
