Dell faces allegations in Australia

The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission is seeking court orders against Dell Computer, alleging false, misleading and deceptive conduct and a failure to state the cash prices of products advertised on the Internet, and in newspapers and magazines. A hearing is scheduled Feb. 7 in the federal court in Sydney. A Dell representative said the company will defend the action and that it had never knowingly misled a customer. Among the remedies the commission is seeking are injunctions restraining Dell from similar advertising in the future, orders requiring Dell to publish ads with corrections, and refunds of the delivery charges for affected consumers. Staff writer Vivienne Fisher reported from Sydney.
