Abstract: The Saudi consumer is usually a passive recipient without having a real impact on the choice of goods and services displayed in the market. There are many government bodies charged with regulating and monitoring market activities in Saudi Arabia, ensuring a high standard of business conduct and good market practices for transaction. However, this does not prevent the occurrence of some undesirable, unfair and deceptive practices, as well as fake products, in the Saudi market.

Keywords: consumer protection; Saudi Arabia; consumer rights; prices.
