Bill Clamps Down On Gyp Artists OTTAWA (CP) A bill con- taining new consumer credit rules will make it "harder for gyp artists to Con- sumer Affairs Minister Ron Basforu tolu the Commons. "We can't expect consumers to be fairly treated in the last half of the 20th century if we rely on a law that is outmoted or Mr. Basford said. He was speaking during de- bate on second reading of the bill amending the Bills of Ex- change Act. The amendment would make finance companies responsible for seeing that no fraud or shady activity is in- volved in taking over promis- sory notes. The bill is designed to strike at the practice of some shady dealers of seEing goods to .1 consumer on a time-paying plan and getting the buyer to sign a promissory note. The dealer sells the note to a finance company which, under present law, can force the buyer to pay even when goods are not delivered or when warranties are not observed.
