False Advertising

A story on news.com.au tells of how Flight Centre has been found unable to meet its "lowest air fares guarantee".

Begs the question. When someone claims they have the best prices, who really believes them? Should the blame be on individuals for not doing their shopping around?

Same goes for "Sales". Often times you can get the same item much cheaper just by shopping around and asking for a discount or a "best price".

Has it got to a point when all advertising is false? The ACCC doesn't think so. So when will they move on the banks?

I don't care if the banks are done for false advertising, what I would like to see is that they get done for price gouging on fees and the like.
