  1. Now old Tawnyowl has moved into the import market,sometimes a little exporting after buying a few goods from China. I did not think I ever would but I cannot resist their prices. Watches and other articles on a small scale,just in case the Taxman is watching i did say small scale.You never know where they are these Tax Men from what i have read. Then i sell to my friends,online or on the car boot. Now of course i want sales and even compete the Chinese if possible out of business to win sales from wherever. But no matter how i try am convinced that i am on an unfair playing field.I

Among them are JBS, the world's largest beef exporter, and BRF, the world's top poultry producer." "They used acid and other chemicals to mask the aspect of the product. In some cases, the products used were carcinogenic," the police said. In other cases, potato, water and even cardboard paper was mixed with chicken meat
  3. hi all I was international student and left australia with 14000AUD credit card debt, its my fault and i am not able to pay if off at the moment. I am in China now and scared that the credit provider will get a court order in Australia and make enforcement in china or they will sell my debt to a chinese or international debt collection agency. I am wondering if they can find out that I am in china now and that they will do to me. I think only immigration knows my china address My life in Australia was scawed by gambling and it's all my fault. any advice will be appreciated.
  4. As usual the worlds two most selfish countries have refused to help in this time of crisis. I'm sorry to say this, but I will feel no sorrow should it break out in either of both of those countries. Mind you, as per norm, it's only UK and USA throwing in assistance, there's not a lot from anywhere else. Islamist problems are only miniscule compared with the problems Russia and China bring on the world. Isil will be gone one day, but Russia and China will still be here bleeding the rest of the world and taking what 'they' want and not giving a damn for anyone else.
  5. Hi there, I'm hoping someone might be able to help me out here. Many years ago I got into some debt with a number of credit cards (the bulk of the debt was accrued around 2001 - 2003 when my then husband was out of work). Until around 2008 I was continuing to make minimum payments on the accounts and crippling myself financially into the bargain. Around 2007 / 2008 I discovered this site and sent off to these cards asking for all the information they had on me. I recall clearly that the information received from HSBC did not include the CCA and I recall writing to them at this time ch
  6. Okay, firstly thanks in advance for any help with this, I'm in a pickle and it's much appreciated. So, basically I have UK graduate account overdrafts with HSBC and Natwest, I left the UK a year ago and have no plans to return for the foreseeable future, I am currently living in China. Natwest is £900 overdrawn HSBC is £1500 overdrawn HSBC is fine, its reduced by £500 a year, I can manage that (just about) However, Natwest are now saying that they have changed policies and will now be charging me £90 in INTEREST alone until its the overdraft is repaid. Firstly, £
  7. I am now living in China and due to unforeseen situations I cannot pay back a debt of £9000 I accrued with a bank in England. Can they send their collectors to China or transfer the debt to there? I am in a bit of a flux. I do not see myself returning to the UK to live or work in the foreseeable future. Thanks in advance, Nathan P.S. I did not pass on my China address or details. However I do have a bank account in ireland and will probably use this if I get a job here. Will they take the money out of my Irish account or us it to find out about my location? The Irish and UK bank
