I have returned! Having not posted since 2014, no issues, no debt afaik everything gets paid, tax paid on time, bills utilities etc that kind of thing. But we awoke this morning to find a message on our answerphone from Fredrickson International instructing somebody who they believe lives here, with a VERY dodgy sounding name to contact them with a reference number... They had called, hung up and then called again to leave this automated message. I am totally and utterly confused as to what this is? We have no debt... nothing! Back in 2011 I had a letter from an agen
I'm hoping somebody can give me a little advice on this one. I have no idea on where to go with it. The basics are this. We took out a breakdown policy with Green Flag 2 years ago. I'm 90% sure, they sent the renewal through the post last year and i paid it online. This year, renewal time arrives and it slipped my mind to do it. The policy expired at the end of August 2012.

Computers that make calls to check for credit or debit card fraud are infuriating – and they don't even make your money secure. My wife tells me that I make a rather comical sight when I start shouting at the radio.

You know about fraud-checking calls, of course. Whenever you do something unusual with your money, like try and close on a house purchase, transfer funds to a loved one who's lost everything while abr
I've found a couple of vague references to this happening on Google but it's just wierd. We've had numerous calls on our Orange land-line from an "international" (ie no number) number with an automated message asking if we receive Sky TV through a dish. Press 1 if yes, 2 if no. On the original call I pressed 2, and they hung up. Now 10+ calls later, it's getting annoying. Does anyone know where I might start finding out who these clowns are?! We have a dish that I installed myself in the flowerbed (we're in a conservation area with no terrestrial coverage or cable) and use it to
