    Happyuser - just because a company has business practises you don't like doesn't mean they are wrong.

    Which company ?

    That would be JustEat they are talking about.

    Just Eat is an extremely disgusting company.

    They make millions of profits by inflating the takeaway prices and manipulating them so that all takeaway shops have the same prices which are increased regularly.

    They are also a monopoly as I do not think there are any other companies we can order from.

    Is there a way to bypass these horrendous people and also is there a government service to see that they use monopoly practices?

    I would like to order by phone but the problem is that Just Eat has employed their own drivers and you cannot just phone the restaurant. Also, I do not want to pay in cash.

    PS: no thick comments 'cook at home' etc please

    You may as we’ll report that Dover’s on the channel, or Kylie Minogue has a nice bottom.

    Whenever I feel a little bored I can always rely on getting a laugh on this board. OP, there are ways round the sharp practises of "monopolistic" JustEat you know - perhaps by using one of its competitors?

    If consumers don't like the service they provide then they have the option to use one of their competitors or to do what people have done for decades which is to collect their own takeaways or prepare their own food.

    When you've made your report, don't forget to then report the Monopolies Commission as there is only one of them.
