I have in the past dealt with a company names Australian Writings, their URL is as follows:
Exceptional Custom Essay Writing Service from AustraliaThey claim to be a Sydney Based company, as advertised on their website home page, and furthermore, on the About Us section of their page, they claim to have offices in Sydney.
About Us at AustralianWritings.comTheir office address is*****
Sydney, AustraliaWhich is quite clearly the Astra Rhodes Hotel located in Sydney
Astra Rhodes*****Rhodes SydneyFurthermore, if you contact this company, they will tell you they are in fact US based, however, their website quite clearly contradicts that statement.I'm wanting to know if this can be a breach of any sort of law? Who I should talk to, and what advise I could possibly get? Although they are an American based company, located in Delaware (As they told me over the phone) would Australian Law still apply considering they are quite clearly misleading customers into thinking they are a Sydney based company?

Hello
It is misleading and deceptive conduct.

That simple.

As they suggest, well broadcast that they are in Australia, that alone would have Australian law as being valid.
