Deloitte attacked by internet antagonist

Deloitte has become the latest accounting Goliath faced with the 21st century's slingshot - a hostile website.

The firm has been irked by a new site created for ‘the exchange of information regarding its behaviour’.

Its antagonist, David Fabb, is doggedly pursuing the firm over its handling of his group of companies, put into administration in 2003.

Documents obtained by Accountancy Age show that the ICAEW is looking into his claims, but Deloitte said investigations had shown the complaints to be without any foundation.

In recent years, minnows have used the internet to attack major organisations. The ICAEW last week found itself on the wrong end of Bruce Lawson, a member opposed to its merger proposals, who revealed its chief executive’s choice of name for a merged institute at www.selfassess.com.

In 2002, PricewaterhouseCoopers spent £75m rebranding PwC consulting to ‘Monday’.

But www.introducingmonday.co.uk was established to poke fun at the firm, using an animated donkey.
