Dear Advertising Standards Authority,

By law you should have replied to my request by 17th May 2011 and have not done so.

Please escalate this request to avoid being reported to the Information Commissioner for a breach.

Yours faithfully,

M Keenan

Dear Advertising Standards Authority,

You have still failed to comply with my freedom of information request and are now in breach of the law.

This will be referred to the Information Commissioner.

Yours faithfully,

M Keenan

I wonder if the ASA have been overwhelmed by the number of requests ?

Here are just a few of the other websites run by the Fields Group. Many have been proven to be involved in sharp practice and made to pay back money to their victims.

Trading Standards only record complaints from UK individuals not businesses but still there are 570 complaints and that does not include the International complaints.

Here is a small sample of their get get rich quick websites

Dear Advertising Standards Authority,

Nothing has been done whatsoever regarding this request and I now have no choice to but to refer this to the Information commissioner.

Yours faithfully,

Dear Advertising Standards Authority,

You still have done nothing whatsoever about this request which is disgraceful. The law is the law and you are in flagrant breach. I will now be writing to the Information Commissioner regarding your flagrant breach of the law.

Yours faithfully,

M Keenan

Enquiries, Advertising Standards Authority

Dear M Keenan,

I have interrogated our database and cannot find any complaints about advertising on websites going by those names. It is possible that the sites may be registered under a different name (management company or some such), and if you are able to provide any further information I'd be happy to look again for you.

Best wishes,

Rob

Dear Inquiries,

That is interesting because I myself made a complaint on 1st march 2011 reference A11-150616 to which I have never received any further reply. It may have been in relation to Fields Group Limited who are the parent company.

Yours sincerely,

M Keenan
