  1. Hi, good people of CAG, I wonder if you can help me, please. Hi there, I bought a car for Four Thousand five hundred and fifty pounds from a chap on Facebook Marketplace about three weeks ago. At first, it all started pleasantly enough, the seller and I traded details, texts and phone calls. I arranged to meet him at his home address, he wasn't there when I arrived and had to wait about 10 minutes for him to arrive. I drove the car on a test drive around the block in the dark, he had the radio on masking any sound, we took it into a garage which had "some" light. I looked a
  2. MoneySavingExpert founder Martin Lewis is suing Facebook for defamation following “repeated fake adverts from [problem]mers it refuses to stop publishing” In a statement on MoneySavingExpert, Lewis wrote: “I get about five messages a day from people saying, ‘I’ve just seen your Bitcoin ad and wanted to check it.’ If that is the number who get through to me, how many more must be just taken in?” Well i have seen these adverts have you. I very nearly lifted a floorboard to take out some of my secret stash after thinking well he is a chap you can trust. I came so close but nailed th
  3. on Wednesday morning i found out Facebook had disabled my Facebook page! :o it seems to be because my real name is XXXXXXXXX, but my Facebook page [& everything on the internet] is called XXXXXXXXX. Apparently it's against Facebook's rules to use a name that isn't your real name! i have got my real name on my page's info section & as my nickname [which only my FB friends can see] but that's not good enough i guess. i've used xxxxxxx for my Facebook since i joined in 2009 so i'm shocked & angry i suddenly got disabled now. if Facebook would un-disable my account then
  4. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2017/may/02/facebook-surveillance-tech-ethics I'm sure we were all aware that facebook (and google) read everything you write and do, BUT perhaps not just how much they monitor and analise you and your kids, and who they sell the findings too. Always remember to log out of your google and facebook accounts.

  6. On Friday I was extremely concerned about a thread on one of the ‘Beat the Bailiffs’ facebook sites that eventually led to the debtor being removed from his car and with many police in attendance. Background: The debtor (Tony) did not seek advice on the site. Instead, his brother Paul sought advice from the Social Media Site on his behalf. It would seem that ‘Tony’ had not paid a penalty charge notice and accordingly, a warrant of control was issued and passed to Marston Group to enforce. The bailiff attended the property early last Friday and after a short period of time, cl
  7. Good day to you all. This is a little unusual but I hope someone can advise me on my legal position? About a year ago I started a Facebook group, it turned out to be quite popular and so I appointed some members as administrators to help me run it. One of these administrators asked me if it would be OK for him to design a new header/logo for the group to which I agreed. He designed it using a proprietry computer program, used public domain and royalty free images, the name of the Facebook group and also the accompanying website that I also registered the domain in my name. He has now
  8. Hi all, I ran into an interesting situation today that I'd like some help with. An email address of mine is associated with both my Ebay account and my Facebook account. Yesterday I purchased goods from a company via Ebay who have today used my email address to look for me and 'friend' me on Facebook. I don't wish to sound like I'm making a mountain out of a mole hill but in my view they've used my email address in a manner other than intended. Are they doing anything wrong? I suspect not, at least legally, but I don't think it's acceptable.
  9. I'm a member of facebook but have never posted anything. I get all this crap about telling the world my email address so I get friends etc, but also rubbish about someone wanting to be my friend. As I say, I have never ever put anything on, but this morning I have a "Craig Wannan wants to be friend with you on facebook" What rubbish, first I doubt there is anyone called Craig Wannan and why would he want to be friends with me when I don't even exist. I certainly don't want to be friends with him even if I did exist as I've never heard of him.

  11. With the amount of fraud being revealed by the DWP and many more cases getting taken to Court is on the increase. The following story from a source that often posts up to date cases and those that involve significant amounts of money. The crime of failing to declare a change of circumstances under the SSAA 1992 is getting more and more publicity in the press. Have a read here and then you can see just how the DWP can and does catch those who fail to make the required notifications of a change of circumstances. I regularly post in the Bailiff section of CAG and there we have a l
  12. We will no longer be able to give advice or to comment on the Npower Nightmare Facebook group because we have been blocked. If you are a member of one of the other groups – Npower Boycott, Nasty Npower, Consumers Against NPower, etc and you see comments which are posted on this forum or in one of those groups and which you feel might be useful to the people who are on the Npower Nightmare Facebook group, then you might think to relay those comments to those people because we will be unable to do so directly. Some of you might also feel inclined to let the members of the Npower Nightmare

  15. I am looking for advice on how to deal with Mecca Bingo High Street Clubs who post online competitions for free tickets etc. Once such competition offered two free tickets to an event worth £20 where you could attend a Mecca Club and have 16 chances to win £1000 full houses (total payout on all games worth £20000) 8 people guessed the correct answer and 2 picked at random won the 2 free tickets to the event worth £20 i.e. free bingo books. Rules were 1 entry but a few entered twice. I was told by Mecca they took the 1st entry for each person but 1 winner's 1
  16. How you socialise online - and who with - could help or hinder your application for a loan or mortgage. Lenders' use of social media to check loan applicants' credit-worthiness is increasing among overseas finance firms - and is now to come to Britain. When someone applies for a loan certain lenders will look at their Facebook activity - including even to see whether any of their "friends" are in debt difficulties. The assumption is that creditworthy people tend to socialise together, and vice-versa. One firm using this approach is Lenddo, which calls itself a "trust-based lender" and so
  17. Hi Just a warning for all you employees Employers are using your facebook and twitter accounts as evidence in tribunals So beware
  18. Does anyone know what the situation is regarding so-called evidence garnered from a private page on Facebook? In light of the current furor and FB insisting it does not give access to government agencies - is it legal for the DWP to use Facebook in court?
  19. How do I change my settings on FB so that everyone can't see everything I've commented on? getting really annoyed now; as certain family members think it's ok to just mention stuff I've posted that I don't wish to talk about.

  21. Hi, My wife has a disciplinary hearing at work because she stupidly made comments about work on facebook and somebody screenshot these and give them to her boss. She basically said her work was a sh**hole and that she couldn't wait to get a new job so she could leave. She has now been suspended awaiting a disciplinary hearing which is this Wednesday with her manager and HR. My question is - what is the most likely outcome from this? She has no warnings at work but people have said she might get fired .... is this likely? Thanks Krav
  22. Facebook and Google amass 'voluntary' personal data Max Schrems is no luddite. The law student was savvy enough to know that, if he requested it, Facebook would have to release all of the data it has collected on him since he joined. Even he, though, was taken aback by the amount of information Mark Zuckerberg's social network had on him. When his report came back – all 1,200 pages of data – he saw details of friend requests he had ignored; people he had "defriended" and even items he had deleted from his account. Yet everything in his file was information he had volunt
