ACCC has time for dating scams but not newsagents

My experience over the years with the ACCC is that they care less about situations that disadvantage small business newsagents and their customers. Despite the ACCC playing a role in the deregulation of print media distribution in Australia, they have been hands off in investigating complaints of anti-competitiveĀ of supermarkets and others compared to small business newsagents.

The ACCC does care about dating though if news reports over the last day are accurate. It appears they are investing time and money in helping Australians to avoid dating scams.

Newsagents are disadvantaged in the current magazine distribution model. This benefits the supermarket duopoly and that, in turn, dilutes competition.

The ACCC and those it reports to care less.
