    Are they ASIC going to prosecute as they would brokers, it's time for ASIC to stand up to this group and prosecute, One Big Switch have broken the law as the primary champion for consumer rights in Australia they have been found to A; Operated without an AFS licence which saw 74,000 people potentially given credit advice and now B; had advertisements that potentially are deceptive and misleading. ASIC has NO CHOICE they must launch a legal action, if they do not want to be seen as having double standards, at the very least they must get One Big Switch to issue an apology and post a note on its Web site for 12 months, will it happen??? Nope.

    Totally agree with all your comments, and now One Big Switch is doing Electricity and has signed up 7,000 households already, telling them they can get huge savings, it never ends with them! So galling they pretend to be a "consumer advocate" when they are really just another marketing scheme.
