BLOOMEX & GOOGLE

Bloomex Pty Ltd while claiming to be "Australia's Official Florist":
falsely represents itself to be a local florist in tens of hundreds of cities, towns & suburbs across Australia;
fabricates thousands of positive reviews about itself;
fabricates flower images so as to trick consumers;
delivers dead flowers via Australia Post.

Google Shopping sells this fraud, by promoting the florist locations that in fact do not exist, in return for $millions coming from consumer pockets (LEARN WHY). Bloomex annual revenue is $9.21 million (modelled). What does the ACCC do about it? NOTHING.... ASK ACCC YOURSELF what they are doing about it. You will get an acknowledgement like this.

The purpose of this website is to:
• exhibit some of the huge amount of evidence online;
• bring this fraud to the attention of Google Shopping;
in order to prepare for public interest litigation in the event of Google continuing to turn a blind eye.

Bloomex local florists falsely represented by Google Shopping to exist,
IN FACT DO NOT EXIST!!!

HUNDREDS MORE
(perhaps thousands)
ACROSS AUSTRALIA
of Google Shopping misrepresentations regarding the existence of BLOOMEX florist shops.

Section 18, Schedule 2, of Australian Consumer Law
Misleading or deceptive conduct;
(1) A person must not, in trade or commerce, engage in conduct that is misleading or deceptive or is likely to mislead or deceive.

Having seen the evidence, now read Google Policy:

GOOGLE MISREPRESENTATION POLICY LINK 1 / LINK 2

LINK 1
Google doesn't want users to feel misled by the content promoted in Shopping ads, and that means being upfront, honest, and providing them with the information that they need to make informed decisions. For this reason we don’t allow the following:

• Promotions that prompt users to initiate a purchase, download, or other commitment without first providing all relevant information and obtaining the user’s explicit consent.
• Promotions that represent you or your products in a way that is not accurate, realistic, and truthful.

We want everyone to have a SAFE and POSITIVE EXPERIENCE when visiting Google and our partner sites.

BLOOMEX & GOOGLE FLOWER FRAUD

AND more from Product Review
with over 4,700 BAD REVIEWS.
+ Regarding Google reviews, there is evidence that Google removes many of the bad ones for its $multi-million client.

AND GUESS WHAT:

If Bloomex cannot find some idiot local florist to perform the order at a ridiculous price, then perishable flowers are sent out by Australia Post which can take up to 5 days.
OF COURSE, in reverse of the Google Misrepresentation Policy, this little postal gem is not declared in the Bloomex Google Shopping RIP-OFF.

Bloomex Brisbane - Australia's Official Florist

Not content with misrepresenting the existence of Bloomex Local Florist Shops, Google Shopping misrepresents the address of Bloomex Brisbane. It's NOT 23/1 Lathe Street (per Google Maps).
THE CORRECT ADDRESS 1/23 Lathe Street Virginia QLD 4014.

Return your flowers here, THAT'S IF YOU GET ANY!

A Google Shopping Excursion

For those that would like to look deeper into how Google does business and treats people.

Example of a Google Ads Certificate:
ANNOYING & CONFUSING EXPERIENCE

Google Shopping (GS) requires application to the Google Merchant Centre (GMC) in order to be able to sell on GS. Google actively prevents honest applicants from joining the GMC, by subsequent to an application falsely accusing them of misrepresentation and immediately suspending them. This can also extend to a Google Adwords account if the unfortunate applicant has one.

It is unknown of Google's motive for this, but perhaps it's to protect the interests of its big spender fraudulent clients from honest competition.

Google refuses to provide any reasons whatsoever for the misrepresentation allegation and suspension, and offers zero real person direct assistance to remedy the matter, thus causing confusion to the applicants. 

Instead Google provides a GMC Forum along with a myriad of pages upon pages of bureaucratic confusing archives of policies, rules and regulations, coupled with appalling navigation, from which one can become even more confused, with unsuccessful trial & error rectification and having to wait up to 7 business days for a review by Google, which then only confirms the misrepresentation and suspension.

It is unknown if reviews are performed by robots or real persons.

In order to assist this debacle, Google engages so called "Volunteers" & "Product Experts" (such as in the above Google Ad Certificate for Moshe Avichai) into the GMC Forum, to assist what have become totally confused applicants that cannot work out why they have been accused of misrepresentation and suspended.

However, from the example provided (in the following column below), the so called "volunteers" are in the business of paid consultation and offering "Suspended Packages" relief and in reality, the GMC Forum is just a place where the "Volunteers" can trawl for the victims of confusion, all with Google's blessing.

So when the unfortunate victims become so frustrated by the seemingly helpful advice provided by the "Volunteers", that doesn't result in a successful outcome, they resort to advancing from the trawling ground and paying for a "Package", which in fact does not guarantee a resolution.
