  1. I know I shouldnt laugh but you have to check out this guys users name.......... One computer user has become so disillusioned with Windows 10's spying features that he has been driven to using Linux Mint as his primary operating system. But Voat user CheesusCrust was curious to find out just how pervasive Microsoft's privacy invasion is. The results of his investigation are quite staggering. Using a router kitted out with DD-WRT, and a copy of Windows 10 Enterprise installed in a virtual machine on his Linux laptop, he started by disabling every single one of the tracking and teleme
  2. Last year I paid in a handful of cheques as a 'job lot' via the automatic machine - more than once. Some months later I needed to identify a few cheques and noted the ones paid in together didn't have a breakdown on my online statement. I called into my branch and nobody seemed to be able to help and was told Head Office would contact me. They didn't. I called back a few weeks later and again nobody could help - both visits took way over 30 mins. Again I was told Head Office would send me the details I wanted. Again they didn't. That was October. 4 m
  3. I have been chased for a number of years by Lowell for a debt. They go through phases of really chasing, then I don't hear anything for a while. In May of this year, the debt became statute barred. It has now disappeared from my credit file and my credit rating has gone to good again. However.... Lowell have REALLY started chasing the last few weeks. I have had letters galore, I have had about 5 phone calls a day and a couple of texts, and now they have started sending letters, addressed to me, to my parents house. My question is what
  4. Now i read this-i usually research a touch but decided for you to tell me what a load of rubbish,you have put on. Let you have a go at old Tawny.Politely if you can. One persons view.Do you think these figures are correct.And their view on things. Do not make me research.I will if you insist. Wonder what MPS really think of us. What they would write in one paragraph.About us. Like this person did,about them. The revolution is coming. Oh dear where is that smiley.Putting flak jacket and safety gear on. Who is first.
  5. Hi I'm posting on behalf of my boyfriend who is extremely mentally unwell at the minute and has been for some time now. Basically what has happened is for the past few weeks he has steadily been slipping into a state of severe depression with extreme OCD and paranoid/visual thoughts that have cumulated into him gambling huge amounts online. The other day he managed to go through his life savings in little under an hour to 2 hours. A total of nearly 20k. He had a breakdown and didn't know what he was doing, saying hours before it happened that he didn't want to live anymore and that everyt
  6. Hi just want some advice here, there's probably not a lot I can do and I think I'm probably a bit 'bang to rights' but do want an opinion or two if anyone can offer anything of the sort. I live in a household with a lot of cars, and even though swinton wasn't the cheapest we went with them as we didn't want all the cars insured by different companies. Anyway everythings gone fine for about 6 months and everythings been paid on time. Today I've got a bunch of letters (one for each policy) informing me that the policies have been cancelled, I am not sure why this is - my sister who is
  7. I don't need to be berated for my stupidity in needing a payday loan or two because things haven't been good at certain dark times this past year or so. OK, yes, I did take a loan out with this lot last year iirc and got into difficulties and tried to arrange a payment plan but they then started hen pecking my account so much that Barclay's actually froze me account from having any debits through it and I had to get cash out over the counter to pay for everything. A good 20 mins each time. So, I closed Barclay's and opened up another account with another bank. Things got very bad for

  10. After another severe winter, road users are increasingly at risk from a growing number of potholes. Here's how you can make local authorities pay up. http://www.guardian.co.uk/money/2013/mar/09/pothole-trouble-make-local-authorities-pay The potholes.co.uk site which is full of useful advice on how to claim successfully. CTC has a website, FillThatHole.org.uk, which allows users to report potholes.
  11. I set up a repayment plan with Vodafone. This was agreed throughout December 2012 and they agreed to remove my default as a result - they have now gone on and put a default on despite my making payments to them. I can't actually think right now or even formulate a sentence. I am just seriously so low and depressed by another matter (an illegally obtained CCJ) and this is just the straw that broke the camel's back. Apparently Vodafone care loads about their customer relations to the point they have representatives on these forums, so perhaps posting this will
