In the states of Aragua and Carabobo, the mobile operator of the State was deployed in Economic Offensive to execute the closure and suspension measures in two Authorized Agents. The Commercial Ally located in Maracay was closed for supplying equipment to informal merchants in Puerto Ayacucho, who sold them at a premium.
Movilnet, a subsidiary of Cantv, continues to be deployed throughout the national territory as part of the II Economic Offensive undertaken by President Nicolás Maduro to combat speculation and hoarding. This Friday in the states of Aragua and Carabobo, closure and suspension measures were executed against two Authorized Agents for irregularities, overpricing and resale of equipment.
After an investigation carried out by the Cantv subsidiary, an entity attached to the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation, it was determined that the commercial ally CDC Grupo Balbi, located on Avenida Bolívar de Maracay, was linked to the resale of mobile equipment in the city of Puerto Ayacucho.
The investigation showed that the Grupo Balbi Communications Center had already been sanctioned with two closures for 15 days, motivated by the sale of mobile equipment that does not belong to the offer of the State operator, which is why the permanent closure of the same.
Last week, Movilnet personnel took a tour of the streets of the capital of the state of Amazonas, in which the sale of Vtelca F310, Caribe III, S133 and Orinoquia U2801 equipment by informal merchants was identified. Then the Superintendency of Fair Prices and the Bolivarian National Intelligence Service (Sebin) were informed, which proceeded to confiscate the equipment and draw up a record of those caught in flagrante delicto.
In the case of the Authorized Agent Comunicaciones Center Móvil 2000 CA, located in the city of Valencia, Carabobo state, the closing measure responds to the surcharge in the sale of the equipment that Movilnet distributes at fair prices to guarantee access to Venezuelans and Venezuelans to telecommunications.
To date Cantv and Movilnet have processed 145 complaints for overpricing, resale, sale with conditions thanks to complaints from users; 49 of these investigations are already closed and 98 in process. Of the complaints investigated, in 14 cases irregularities were found that warranted closure or suspension.
Carmen Paredes, a resident of the La Cooperativa sector, went to the Balbi Communications Center, located on Avenida Bolívar de Maracay, to acquire an inexpensive equipment. “Yesterday I came to this place and they did not want to sell me,” he said when he learned of the action carried out by Movilnet, by means of which he prohibited from selling cell phones.
Cantv and its subsidiary Movilnet, confirm that they will continue with the process of inspection of their commercial allies, to avoid crimes such as hoarding and usury. Likewise, the Company reiterates the call to the users of its services and products to report these fraudulent actions through the service numbers 155 and 0-800-Cantv-00 and the social media account @ContactoCantv and @SomosMovilnet .
