Is this a question for Australia or the UK?

Where is the company that mislead you located?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
They are located in Dubai, UAE.
Furthemore, from my understanding its all contracted under the Laws of England which I believe has similar if not the same principles to Australian?
Solicitor: Leon, Solicitor replied 10 months ago

Good Evening

Yes you are correct. But because the company is UAE based and not in the UK or Australia you are covered by the UAE laws.

The courts of Australia and the UK cannot tough them unless the have representation in the UK or Australia.
