  1. I hope I'm posting this in right place. I hope some one can give me some advice. I work in a small hotel. I'm the Head Chef. We have 2 other chefs working in the kitchen. One of the chefs is known to be very lazy. Likes to take time off saying he is ill when isn't, spends more time playing on phone than working etc. Earlyer this week on the Tuesday I was working with him and he started going on about how he had just got a new xbox and the new call of duty game that had just come out. He started moaning that his friends were already much higher level than him and that he need to catch up.
  2. Monopoly chiefs have set up a Christmas hotline to prevent board game bust-ups over the festive period. The helpline is to open in light of a survey that found 51% of Monopoly games end in a row. The most common cause of quarrels was due to people "making up the rules as they go along". The hotline will open from 24th - 26th December, when families will be able to get mediation on any game-based arguments. http://www.itv.com/news/2016-12-19/monopoly-christmas-helpline-opens-to-prevent-boardgame-bust-ups/

  4. late last year I won on the wheel of fortune in the life of leisure game at mecca bingo.com it came up congratulations you have won £10.000 a month for 12 months and your first instalment has been paid into your account ! I was gob smacked and thought I was seeing things , but there in my account was £10,000. I rang mecca bingo to see how my other payments would be made , immediately the game was removed from the site and they were confused by what I was telling them as they stated "they do not pay prizes in instalments". after several phone calls , they even asked me what I wante
  5. Hello A month ago I posted news about being successful BUT am still waiting for DWP to action!!!! Is there a time-limit for DWP to put this decision through and pay arrears?? (they clear a WCA decision speedily but not a reversal) Even intervention from an advice centre hasn't moved things along. Like DWP don't care and fob off.
  6. Hi all, hope I've got this in the right section. I'm looking for a bit of advice in something regarding ordering online from Game. My missus decided to order a playstation 4 game as a birthday present. (party was sunday 2nd aug, actual birthday is monday 03rd aug) she ordered it online, albeit it was cheaper at other sites, she paid the higher price for the item as it seemed only game was offering it with the option of 1-2 delivery days at the time. she ordered is late wednesay morning (lunchtime latest) after no show of the item on thursday, friday or saturday!
  7. My 16 year old has just p***d away £1014 on FIFA Ultimate Team and Runescape crap. Briefly, he was left an inheritance of £3000. We took him into the bank where his current account was and helped him open an ISA and put it in there. Unknown to us, he set up online banking and over the space of a month started transferring it into his current account to waste on in game player packs etc. In one single day he blasted over £400 He knows in no uncertain terms that he has been utterly stupid and has vowed to earn it back over the summer with a part time job(s). I know that I'm at fault f

  9. I received a voucher for CEX for Christmas and used it to purchase some games from CEX online. One of the games was a PC game, The Sims 4. When I tried to install it, an error message appeared saying the serial key had already been used, so I couldn't install the game. The game was £35 and I am unable to use it at all. I have emailed customer services and have had no reply, it's been almost a week now. I've googled this subject and I've seen that people have not had much luck getting refunds in this scenario. Surely they can't sell you a game that you can't use? If I knew anything l
  10. i went in to the shop Game, and decided to purchase a game for the nintendo wii, it was marked up as 99p, it was a used game, took to the till and the cashier said thats £7.99 please, obviously i pulled him up and said erm...nope, it clearly says 99p on it, he asked his manager who said the 99p was a offer price, but the offer had ended, and the sticker should not be on there, so they have every right to refuse sale, is that right.
  11. I'm in the UK, specifically Scotland. Where do I stand here? Bought FIFA 15 for PS4 from Asda yesterday, and it's basically unplayable for me, I have a BT Home Hub and the game lags non stop, even in the menus. Apparently the only fix is to disable UPnP in your router settings. On the basis it's not fit for purpose I took it back for a refund, but they refuse to do so, saying it's company policy to only offer exchange like for like on games. Surely this can't apply to faulty products??
  12. Hey guys, really was unsure if I was going to bother posting this, but here goes. I purchased a used iPhone 5 from a Game high street store last July 2013. It is obviously now out of the 1 year warranty they give you. I purchased the phone for the sum of £380 & I was sold the phone as "unlocked". I had been using the phone since July 13, initially with a "giffgaff" simcard (I believe is run on the o2 network, but for the past 4 months or so, I have used a "3" sim card in it. This week i decided to sell the phone & I selected "Erase all content and settings
  13. Have PPC's changed the rules? Reading on a couple of other forums, threads where the advice is "PPC's never do court", they have been followed by the first time papers have been issued. The old regulars seem to be sending them out as well. Results to come in yet, but it's a change, and seems across the board, so maybe the BPA is behind it. Even the two recent wins on defended cases have been on technicalities. One was an incorrect witness statement, one was that a "variation of contract" had been given to the customer. Even though the first one is
  14. i brought a new game called "dead island:riptide special edition" for my xbox. what makes it a special edition is that you get a code included with game that gives you additional item for use in the game. it cost me £43 for it, where a normal edition game costs £40. I tried the code but it doesnt work but the game works fine. my wife took it back and they told her they could do nothing as the game had been opened.( had to open it to get the code out.). They said contact microsoft about the code as it is nothing to do with them. i phoned them and was told the same stuff. my point is i have pai
  15. I bought a game from 'Steam' so have no disc. Before I bought the game I checked the minimum spec and my PC is more than powerful enough so I went ahead and bought it. After installation I tried to play the game and it is twitchy as hell and has no sound. I told them about this but they didn't seem to care; I asked for a refund and they said they don't do refunds; this item is not fit for the purpose I purchased it for..any advice please? Ripped off £20 by Steam.
  16. First time asking a question so forgive me if I do it wrong! I play an online game using my android mobile conected to O2. I purchased some "premium" content using my phone bill as payment. I at no time received the "premium" content, yet the cost shows on my O2 bill. I contacted the company who suplly the game, they claim not to have received the money. I have sent them a screen dump of my O2 bill showing the amount as due on my next bill I have also forward a copy of the sms confirming payment yet they still refuse a refund. Question: As I am on a post pay contract ie I pay after

  19. Hello all, I purchased a keycode for a PC game through ebay/paypal a few weeks ago and it seemed to work fine so left positive feedback. I had already checked the sellers feedback too before purchase and it seemed ok. A couple of weeks ago though, Origin/Dice/E.A.Games cancelled the my account (the part associated with that keycode). When speaking in chat help with Origin they tell me the account is cancelled as the keycode is fraudulant. I open a case with ebay and after some time the turn around and refuse to refund. ebay claim it is an online transaction of good so not covered. Eb
