Supanews website claims 47,000 transactions

The Supanews website I wrote about in December claims to have completed more than 47,000 transaction since its launch.

The website itself is effectively a front for other sites – passing transactions to other providers for magazine subscriptions, lottery products and stationery. The site does not, as the promoters claim, replicate a traditional newsagency.

Supanews has claimed to its franchisees that it does not own or operate the site. I investigated this and am not sure. I traced control of the site to an accounting practice in Hong Kong that offers a service registering and running shelf companies for others.
