Tesco Crisis - Dangerous Finger Cutting Trolleys Customer Warning Alert! / ConsumerWatch / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Tesco customers are not only having to watch out for sharp practices whilst shopping such as fake shelf prices that don't convert at the checkouts as the February 2017 BBC Investigation revealed, but also have to watch out for sharp pieces of metal sticking out from trolleys that can result in cut fingers as this unlucky customer experienced (Sheffield).

Tesco £5 off Next £40 Shop Vouchers, Discounts, Offers and Club Cards / Companies / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Once upon a time there was a supermarket giant called Tesco that would literally throw money at its customer so that they continued to shop in its stores for the expressed purpose of maintaining the lions share of the UK retail market at more than double the share of Tesco's nearest rival. The Tesco club card was the flag ship in Tesco's arsenal for retaining big spending customers amongst many weapons of mass consumption such as £5 off for your Next £40 shop vouchers that the checkout tills like lottery machines would spit out every now and then.

Tesco Dodges a Bullet Customers to Pay £220m for SFO Fraud Fine and Investors Compensation / Companies / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

So Tesco managed to dodge a bullet and avoid a criminal prosecution by agreeing to pay a fine of £129m as part of a Deferred Prosecution Agreement with the Serious Fraud Office for its 2014 false accounting scandal as well as to compensate investors by an estimated £90m (including interest) for those who bought Tesco shares on the basis of false accounting in 2014.

Tesco Dodges a Bullet - £129m Fine to Avoid SFO Prosecution and £90m Compensation / Companies / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Britain's largest retailer, near triple the size of its nearest competitor Sainsbury manages to dodge a bullet by being fined £129m as part of a DPA (Deferred Prosecution Agreement) with the SFO (Serious Fraud Office) for its 2014 false accounting scandal.

Which means that Tesco avoids a formal prosecution and that the fine+ investor compensation is about half what it could have been with some estimates ranging as high as £500m, perhaps the SFO took Tesco's distressed state into consideration as the super market giant had been in meltdown, it's stock price having collapsed by 60% from its high and having lost £10 billion in annual revenues to it's competitors.

Tesco Crisis - Fake Prices, Brexit Inflation Tsunami to Send Food Prices Soaring 10% 2017 / Companies / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Its now well over 3 years since I first started warning that there is something seriously going wrong at Tesco, Britains supermarket giant and that stock investors should take note and sell out, at what was then a stock price trading near its all time high of £3.83, at the time I was criticised for basing my views purely on anecdotal evidence. However, as an experienced investor I WELL UNDERSTOOD that to truly know how a company is performing then one has to experience its service and products first hand as a consumer!

BBC Inside Out Tesco Rip off Offers - Determined to Lose Big Spend Customers! / ConsumerWatch / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

At 7.30pm tonight the BBC's Inside Out programme will be broadcasting (also available on iplayer) of how Tesco customers are being ripped off as shelf advertised offers fail to convert at the checkouts due to the promotions having ended days, weeks or even months earlier! For instance 'buy 1 get 1 free', at the checkout can result in customers paying double the expected price in most of Tesco stores, as the BBC investigation showed 30 out of 50 stores tested demonstrating the issue of advertising promotions that do not convert at the checkout tills!

Tesco Crisis - BBC Investigation Reveals Customers Being Short Changed Due to Staff Cuts / ConsumerWatch / Tesco

By: Nadeem_Walayat

BBC Insight programme to be broadcast tonight at 7.30pm will reveal that Tesco customers are being short changed by promotions that have expired but are still being advertised on the shelves thus when customers for instance 'buy 1 get 1 free', instead end up paying double the expected price in most Tesco stores. As a Tesco shopper I have long since been aware of this issue which is why I always check the date that the offer replies to. Though this tends to be in small print so can be difficult to see with ageing eyesight. Also I have witnessed the SAME phenomena whilst shopping at Morrisons and Asda, though not on the same scale of Tesco. Still it does require the dates of every offer to be checked.

Ackman: "We did look at Tesco, I’ll have to admit that" / Companies / Tesco

By: Bloomberg

Bill Ackman , Founder and CEO of Pershing Square, discussed taking Pershing Square Holdings public and U.K. companies he was considering with Bloomberg TV's Francine Lacqua and Guy Johnson today. He said oil's drop is a "huge boon" to the U.S. consumer and helps "the vast majority" of the economy.

Ackman revealed he considered investing in Tesco in the last six months: "We did look at Tesco, I'll have to admit that. But we've had our difficulties with retail and a lot of structural changes going on that make that a more difficult business. We look occasionally at companies in the U.K.
