Analysts in the advertising industry believe that: Judging from the administrative penalty notice, this is a typical case of "false advertising", and according to relevant laws, if the publication of false advertising is suspected of "earnings more than 100,000"; or "although less than 100,000" , but has been punished for two false advertisements within two years, and still uses advertisements to make false propaganda of goods or services”, the public security organ may file a criminal case against the enterprise involved.




That is to say, similar false propaganda, in addition to administrative penalties of up to tens of thousands of yuan, may also face the risk of criminal prosecution!
