In the Matter of Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180
The Staples/Essendant, Inc., File No. 1810180 deal and many others appear to be little more than a new age racketeering scam not a sound business plan for a healthy Main Street economy. The FTC is supposed protect America's interests in business matters not turn a blind eye to opportunistic con men who profit from the destruction of actual businesses.
