Australia's 'shonkiest' products named and shamed Date October 30, 2012 - 1:18PM Rachel Wells
Ticketek, Ticketmaster, Cabcharge and Jetset Travelworld have joined a smartphone water-proofing product and a water-wasting washing machine on a list of the nation's "shonkiest" goods and services.
Consumer watchdog Choice, which runs the annual Shonky Awards to highlight "unscrupulous" products, named eight lemons on this year's list.
Ticketmaster and Ticketek — which was fined $2.5 million late last year for anti-competitive behaviour — were included for "over-the-top and inescapable fees" applied when customers purchase tickets to an event.
