Success University advertisements

Adverts are appearing in the papers offering people "up to $50,000 per annum" if they get involved with Success University. Unfortunately the web site mentioned doesn't seem to let me email them a complaint about pretending to be a University.

This also meant I couldn't explain to them that they were in breach of Section 17 (1) (i) of the Consumer Protection Regulations 2001 lists a number of "deceptive methods, acts or practices shall constitute acts of unfair business practice", one of which is:
"advertising courses of instruction and implying the promise of
employment or remuneration where this cannot be guaranteed".
