Mr Eugeni Yurievich Tsvetnenko - s.87B undertaking

Company or individual details

  • Mr Eugeni Yurievich Tsvetnenko (this entry is an individual, not a company)

Undertaking

Mr Tsvetnenko trades under the name Mobile Adverts and carries on the business of operating adult entertainment chat services using mobile phone short messaging services (SMS).

The ACCC was concerned that Mobile Adverts made representations to the public in print and on the internet that users of the service could make contact with the people profiled in the advertisements for possible introduction and dating.

Mobile Adverts also represented that users of the service could not list their own profile as advertised, and the ACCC believes that the price advertising used by Mobile Adverts may cause some confusion to consumers.

Mr Tsvetnenko has provided a Section 87B undertaking to the ACCC that he will not:

  • advertise that Mobile Adverts provides dating or introduction services, when that is not the case;
  • advertise only part of the price of Mobile Adverts services but rather advertise the total price, where there are additional costs or charges that apply; nor
  • represent that customer profiles can be listed on dating or introductory services advertised by Mobile Adverts, when there is no facility to list customer profiles.
