  1. Aw thanks for that xxx much appreciated x
  2. Hi I had a small leak & across the road the elderly lady was having her roof replaced they seemed to be doing a good job, I asked if they could come & look at mine. Big mistake he said the batons needed replacing, re felting & insulating & my tiles put back on as there is nothing wrong with them, for the whole roof he quoted £3,800.00, told me it would take 3 days, the first day he asked for £300 then the next day another £300 & the day after another £300, then he came back same day for another £100. Then the next week because it was held
  3. *RainbowTears* I am sorry to hear you lost so much money, I am normally so careful, when i'm on my laptop I hover over links/addresses to make sure the are who they are purporting to be but you cant do that with your phone or at least I don't think you can. Like you say it has taught me a lesson as well which is not to be so lazy & get my laptop out instead of the phone.
  4. silverfox1961 Yes you are correct I received an email survey with the Lidl logo etc but what made it more convincing we do shop at lidl and they asked all lidl related questions like was the shop clean, how fast did you go through checkout etc. I rang the cooperative bank this morning & they had already done a charge back & stopped the continuous payment authority but am going to keep an eye on my account over the next few months. I am so annoyed with myself & 1'm going to be a lot more careful when using my phone in future, as the smart security on my laptop would not le
  5. renegadeimp Thanks! I'm with cooperative bank, the girl said the department that will deal with it, isn't open at the weekends.
  6. BankFodder thanks for the advice which I will follow. You helped me a long time ago which got results. This site is amazing & so are the people that give advice.
  7. Thanks! everyone I rang my bank & they have taken the details & will pass it to the relevant dept tomorrow & they will ring me.
  8. silverfoax1961 Thanks for the explanation
  9. Thanks king12345 They only have my debit card number do you think I will be able to cancel my debit card & get a new one reissued?
  10. silverfox1961 Thanks for the explanation I will contact my bank. Below is an excerpt from the email, in case anyone else gets duped the name of the company is Beauty & Truth The original email survey was purporting to be from Lidl which I realise now it isn't from Lidl as my smart security on my laptop is flagging the website/link as unsafe & wont allow me to go to it. I originally used my iPhone to fill out the survey which hasn't got the same protection. I will be more careful using my phone in future. this is an excerpt from email If you made a trial order purchase
  11. thank you so much for replying, what is charge back?
  12. I think I may have been scammed .Yesterday I filled out a survey for Lidl, the usual questions how did you find the checkout process etc After I had filled it out it said congratulations you have won a prize, so I followed the link filled out my name & address etc then it said I had to pay for delivery £4.99, this is when alarm bells should have rung but it showed supposedly feedback for the product, so I decided to go ahead and give my debit card details, idiot I know. After the thank you etc I checked my email inbox & it states that I will sent further goods & will be c
  13. Hi Everyone Thanks for all your replies, the text message worked, I quoted the relevant part below, in case it helps someone else. I do not know if you are aware but it is AGAINST the law to withhold these items from us as per the Torts (Interference with Goods Act) 1977 details are below:- Clearing out the tenant’s goods Property that the tenant leaves behind still belongs to the tenant and normally should be returned to the tenant. If you throw away property belonging to the tenant which subsequently turns out to be of value, you may be subject to a claim from the tenant
  14. ericsbrother Many thanks for your reply I have sent him a text asking for the virgin boxes plus my deposit back, I have also drafted a letter addressed to him, saying the same as the text message which I will post through the letter box at our old address and I am going to get one of the neighbours to witness us putting it through the letter box. The work that was done on the property was to secure the back of the property with a fence and a gate, as it was open and anyone could walk down the drive and into our back garden this was done around 10 years ago with his permission because we h
