  1. I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this. But I felt it important to bring to the forums attention. I've just seen a grossly misleading advert in my Facebook News Feed from Wonga. Whilst this is absolutely true for Parking on Private Land, It is almost certainly not the case for Council Issued Penalty Charge Notices... But it gets better: "Especially when the charges seem extortionate" Pot kettle black there I think... Worth reporting to the ASA??
  2. Hi, I wish for some advice on my issue please. On the 24th of Oct this year I purchased a BMW from a second hand car dealer. The car is a 64 plate, just over 2 years old. I purchased this car on the premise that it had many options on the car. I paid for the car before picking it up some on cc, some by transfer and also a trade in under the assumption that I would be protected on my purchase. On the drive home (3 hour journey) I noticed that some of the options listed in the advert were not present on the car. I checked the car more thoroughly and

  4. The UK's broadband providers have been told to expect tougher rules on how they advertise their services. The UK's Advertising Standards Authority said it was considering the step to ensure people "aren't misled by pricing claims". It follows a study that indicated most users could not correctly calculate bills based on the information given in a selection of broadband ads. The ASA said it would make a final decision before June. A lobby group representing the broadband industry has suggested more research is needed before any changes are imposed. But one of the intern

  8. Good morning, Is anyone being affected by a Tesco advert "Farm to Fork" appearing as a pop up regularly causing computer screen to flicker but stop when add is opened??
  9. Payday loan adverts could still be aired on children's TV despite a call from a committee of MPs for a ban. A report by the Business Select Committee said adverts could expose children to the idea that these short-term, high interest loans were "fun". But the government's response to December's report said adverts already faced "strict content rules", so a law change looks unlikely. The committee's chairman Adrian Bailey called the response "very weak". However, major lenders have always said that advertising on children's TV was agains
  10. -Do you think that the Advertising Standards Agency would be interested in clarks latest advert?? The advert states they have 94% customer satisfaction???? so why as many complaints? They also state 97% of customers would recommend them??? so why am I getting WEEKLY queries from disgruntled former customers, in response to my rear window sticker?? ARNOLD SHARK NEVER AGAIN
  11. The Advertising Standards Authority has ordered a payday lender to pull a television advert for being misleading and for failing to ensure the representative APR was sufficiently prominent. The advert, from Peachy.co.uk, a trading style of Cash on Go, stated: “Payday loan companies expect you to repay your loan in one big payment. However, Peachy.co.uk offers multiple repayments, that’s right, multiple repayments”. Images of different payment amounts appeared before on-screen text stated “MULTIPLE REPAYMENTS. Over 18s, subject to status. Representative APR 1058%. Terms and conditions appl
  12. The Advertising Standards Authority has forced claims management company Money Boomerang to pull a ‘misleading’ television advert. The watchdog said the advert had exaggerated claims that homeowners could receive thousands of pounds of compensation for mis-sold mortgage loans. The TV advert, which had been running since April, promised settlements from £1,000 to more than £10,000. The advertising campaign targeted homeowners who had taken out a mortgage since 2004 and received advice from an intermediary. In the advert the voiceover stated: “Have you taken out a mortgage since Nove
  13. Payday lender Peachy in dodgy radio plug When radio adverts for payday lender Peachy.co.uk stated the *representative annual interest, the voiceover didn't say 1,918% - it was instead read out as "nineteen eighteen per cent". Peachy is owned by Cash On Go Limited, which has two directors, Efim Frumkin from Russia and Kristjan Novitski from Estonia. The company said there was no intention to mislead. However, the Advertising Standards Authority has banned the "ambiguous" plug because it "could have been misheard or misunderstood". http://blogs.m
  14. An advertisement for payday loans featuring reality TV star Kerry Katona, a former bankrupt, has been banned by the industry watchdog, partly for suggesting the money could help to fund a celebrity lifestyle. Ms Katona, who promoted frozen food retailer Iceland after winning "I’m a Celebrity ... Get Me Out of Here”, talked about her former “money troubles” in the TV ad. She was declared bankrupt in 2008 after failing to pay a tax bill. The ad for PDB UK, trading as Cash Lady, drew 29 complaints that it was irresponsible because it focused on Ms Katona's financial problems and encouraged

  16. We bought some of the magnetic door advert signs and they have left a mottled white square on the door. The firm were initially unhelpful and gave this advice We challenged this and they next asked us to send them a photo of the damage. Now they are asking us to send it to USA address (they never gave as email) real fob - off it seems... I have mentioned OFT and further advice if they don't pull their finger out. Any other organisations I can use herein?
  17. Just seen an advert on TV for a preloaded code from provident, get £200 for Christmas, then the APR came up....399.4%!!!!!! What planet are they on?
  18. This is great, type in your postcode and the advert will run, but on some scenes it will use Google street scenes and taxy past your house. http://taxi.ba.com/
