  2. Howdy, folks! I bought a photo frame off Amazon for £13.99. It's pretty nice, and intended as one of my dad's Christmas presents. it's turned up with broken glass. Fine. I emailed the seller asking for an exchange, the seller asked if it was usable and if so they'd give me a 35% refund. Fair enough. I looked into how much it would cost me to replace the glass with either glass or Perspex. Turns out I can get Perspex for around £13, I told them that 35% wouldn't work for me, I'd rather have either an exchange or a full refund. The seller came back offer
  3. I like going out to markets.Having a look around. Listening to what people are saying. The banter ,the friendship,feel the atmosphere of the market.The massive variety of goods. A special place. I have noticed in our local market some are struggling. In fact a few are leaving in trouble,owing rent etc. Some have done moonlight flits.Perhaps to scared or embarrassed to face things and certain people. After trying so hard. Perhaps many are just scraping through not making much at all for the graft they put in.And hours worked. So if you are a market trader or know a mark
  4. Has anyone noticed that many banking apps now want to have access to more details on your mobile phone? I was asked to update my banking app from the market store and found out by checking the new app permissions that they now want access to my internet browsing history and to have access to my contacts and to be able to modify and remove contacts!!!! I have already fired off a complaint to the FCA and ICO regarding these apps and will have a response within 30 days. this is seriously concerning and I will now review all of my other apps and have turned off several app
  5. Hi All, Here we go again, this time Quid Market. A little bit of background info first, loan taken out September 2013 due for repayment September 2013. Struggled to pay it back and as with all my creditors wrote to them advising them of my situation making an offer of a monthly payment that was affordable. Various emails back and forth, eventually I commence a monthly payment in February of this year. I make the monthly payments, to date I have made 5 monthly payments including one after the claim was issued. During this time i did receive a few emails asking me to pay more and
  6. Britain's Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) on Thursday published a report into the country's energy markets in which it identifies opaque pricing, the dominance of utilities and an uncompetitive retail market as the main negative factors. The so-called issues statement is part of an investigation into the British energy market, one which the CMA will publish its final report by Dec. 25 2015. http://www.lse.co.uk/FinanceNews.asp?code=lc2pkmug&headline=UK_competition_watchdog_publishes_report_on_energy_market_investigation
  7. Thursday, June 26, 2014 - 12:00 We have today referred the energy market to the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) for a full investigation. The CMA will begin its investigation immediately and will likely publish its final decisions by the end of 2015. Clear the air The investigation is an important opportunity to clear the air and should ensure competition in the energy market effectively bears down on costs and drives improvements in customer service and innovation. This will help rebuild consumer trust and confidence in the market. It will also help to provide
  8. Hello I am hoping someone will be able to give me some advise. I took out a loan with Quid Market and defaulted to to a change in financial circumstances. I have offered to set up a payment plan which was declined. I have now received a text message advising me of a home / work visit which terrifies me. How should I deal with this. All help greatfully received.
  9. I would like to ask some questions about selling the house we currently have on the market. This relates to the buyers and sellers form we need to fill in. It asks if you have made any complaints. I made a complaint to the local Council about a mobile mechanic doing up cars on the side of the road. The house is in my partner's name and he didnt make the complaint - but do we need to declare anyway? Secondly it asks about have you had any disputes? Yes with the same mobile mechanic. He has caused problems to the off road parking (matter resolved with police help),
  10. The Office of Fair Trading (OFT) has launched a study into the ‘quick house sale’ market due to concerns that homeowners are receiving much less than the value of their property. The regulator has asked more than 50 quick house sale firms to provide information on their business models and practices. It has also called on those people who have used these businesses to contact the OFT about their experiences. Quick house sale providers offer to buy a property or find a third party buyer quickly, usually at a discount from the full market value. But the OFT has voiced its concerns about th
  11. We have all heard of the deadly ‘Amazon Fly Trap’ well now we have the ‘Amazon Market Place Trap’ equally as painful if you fall in it. This is a warning message really, although reading some of the pieces on this site it is nothing new and had I had been more on my toes and read more on the internet I would not have fallen in the ‘Amazon Market Place Trap’. I bought a "Nikingstore IDE/SATA Dual Slot Hard Drive Docking Station" on Amazon for £23.99. I received the confirmation email and again foolishly as I have been so use to and confident of Amazon’s system I just let it sit

  14. There were nearly 200 savings accounts pulled off the market last month alone. Britain’s savings accounts have been vanishing from the market this year, with 351 disappearing in 2012. Savers can look forward to a tough 2013 as providers that remain announce shocking rate reductions for their existing customers. Furthermore, this drop in interest rates has meant that few savings accounts and Isas are available that beat or even match inflation. Moneyfacts research reveals 351 savings accounts have been withdrawn from the market since the start of the year, with only 2,038 remaining. What i
  15. The number of UK adults who think they are likely to seek a payday loan has risen almost 50% in the past 12 months, new research from R3 claims. With the figure up from 3.5 million last autumn to 5 million today, the insolvency trade body suggests that the payday loan can no longer be regarded as a niche form of credit. According to R3, when used to fill a genuine one-off gap in finances this type of loan has its place but increasingly payday loans are being taken on as a debt solution rather than a financial solution, with one in three unable to settle up on their first payday loan. Upta
  16. Consumers warned to move quickly to take fix their energy prices before winter. EDF has pulled its most popular fixed rate energy deal off the market. EDF Energy Blue + Price Promise April 2014 was one of just two remaining fixed price deals without an early exit penalty on the market, but from today customers looking to fix their energy bills with no exit penalties have just one option from Scottish Power. EDF's decision follows SSE's shock price hike last week. The rise is expected to affect 8.4m customers and will add an extra £119 to the average SSE standard dual fuel bill, bringing
  17. The personal current account review will seek to establish how the market has evolved since the OFT's market study in 2008. It will look at whether initiatives agreed by the OFT with banks have been successful at improving the switching process, increasing the transparency of personal current account charges and allowing people to manage their accounts more effectively. http://www.oft.gov.uk/news-and-updates/press/2012/62-12

  19. Payday lender Wonga is reported to be considering a US stock market flotation that could value the business at more than £1billion. A 'beauty parade' to choose two banks to lead the process is under way but no decision has been taken on whether to proceed, the Sunday Telegraph said.
