  1. Lousy Service, possible Breach of Contract? I phoned them and asked them if they could repair a tilt and turn window in a rental property They said that they could and quoted three prices (depending on what work needed to be done) which I agreed and furnished my credit card details. An appointment was made for a few days later. On the morning of the appointment the engineer telephoned me and when leaning it is a tilt and turn, said he could not do it. I complained to the company and Mr R**** sent me, (to the wrong address), an insulting reply saying they are not c

  3. This is my story . I had a £16 a month sim only contract with tmobile for 2gb of data ,1000mins and unlimited text. My contract was due to end on October 28th.

  4. Footage of a woman in Greater Manchester getting dragged along as a man attempts to steal her car is "utterly shocking", police have said. It shows a man running into Deb Smythe's Audi as she opened a car park barrier at Green Pest Control, Ripponden Road, Oldham on Friday. The 52-year-old from Oldham struggled with the suspect and was dragged along with the car as it was reversed back into Ripponden Road. The offender then fled on foot.

No confidence it'll turn up when they said as its not on their normal delivery schedule day - ir even on their tracking yet - and I dont expect a response either!
  6. This thread is technically in the wrong forum - http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-manchester-26725929 A pensioner from Greater Manchester claims he is being evicted after complaining about the solicitor who handled his father's will. Paul Cowdrey from Rochdale said his home, part of his late father's inheritance, is being sold to pay a £130,000 legal debt owed to a solicitor. He said he complained to the Law Society about the amount of hours he was being billed for by solicitor Michael Sandler. Mr Cowdrey said he was then billed by him for investigating the compl
  7. Hi, Sorry if this has already been posted on this site but I have just read a shocking story that was published yesturday in a newspaper. To read more here is the link: http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/news/scottish-news/tenant-slits-wrist-housing-office-2237582 This is so shocking and to be honest, would anyone pay rent in that flat with the state of he's walls.
  8. Good Afternoon We purchased a 3 piece leather suite from SCS (Clydebank) store in August 2008, we took delivery in December 2008. Total cost excluding insurance £1795. We've had no real reason to complain until now 4 years later we've discovered an issue with one of the cushions, the leather appears to be stretching/peeling away and has now resulted in a 2cm hole. We are dog owners and the dogs do get to sit on them, however are very well behaved and never damaged the leather in anyway, we thought perhaps one of them had however been rubbing this particular cushion. As we
  9. Hello, I have just recently taken out an insurance policy with Hastings and, for reasons unknown, my first direct debit payment has (according to hastings) been cancelled. I have never seen the instruction on my account, and had not thought any more of it, until I received a letter from Hastings yesterday informing me of a missing payment; the letter stated that I had until 4/1 to pay £40+. I have just called to resolve the problem and been told that I had to pay the £40+ PLUS a £20 fee. I was shocked at the cost and was just told "well, do you want to or not?" How can that be right? A

  12. Police probing the disappearance of missing schoolgirl Tia Sharp have launched a murder inquiry, people are asking why did it take so long to find a body in the house at the centre of the inquiry? And how did police lose track of one of the key figures in the disappearance? here http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2185939/Tia-Sharp-missing-Murder-inquiry-launched-police-body-grandmothers-home.html This beggars belief, what exactly do we pay the police for?
  13. As English fans cheer securing a victory over their Ukrainian hosts on Tuesday night,any fans making a late decision to fly out and follow England will have little to cheer when they see the prices of flights which have increased massively from usual fares. I decided to take a look at 4 leading carriers with regular routes to Kiev from London. Boryspil is still the biggest airport and is serviced by all the majors except Wizz Air,who have made the smaller Zhulani their Ukraine hub. Boryspil is approximately 40 minutes ride from the centre of Kiev,whils Zhulani is only around 15 minutes.
  14. Hello, I moved property 3 months ago. When I chose this location, there were several factors which were very important to me. 1) A NTL connection had to be available, which the estate agent told me was available, and they even showed me the NTL connection. 2) That there was CCTV around the entire property, which there appears to be by various cameras placed around the property. Since I have moved there, I have found out that: 1) The NTL connection is infact a dummy and does not work. I approached the letting agent about this and got the following response: **********
