Recently I posted on a totally different website regarding problems with my gym membership contract. I was very vague with my personal details (as I always am when posting on the Internet) and am going to be forced to be even more vague here. The only details I gave were my first name (which was part of my username) and the month which I signed up for the gym membership, which was involved to give a timescale so other users could help me with my problems in cancelling the membership. The contract itself was taken out with a certain company, which I named in my original post as I noticed many others had posted with their own problems with the same company on that particular forum. Assuming that this would be OK, I described my situation (not insulting or otherwise slandering the company in any way and not giving ANY other personal information e.g location, gym name, etc), simply asking what the best way to proceed would be to help solve the problem as fast as possible since I wasn't getting any luck from customer service. A day after I'd posted I received a call from this company, telling me that they had discovered that I'd posted something on the internet regarding my gym membership (they stated my specific location/details so I was fairly sure it wasn't a [problem] call and was the actual company my contract was with) and that they were investigating the matter since I'd been given incorrect information. When I demanded to know how they had found out that it was me who posted, they simply said that by taking my first name and the general month that I'd joined with them gave them all the information they needed to call me up. Is this lawful? Was I just being incredibly stupid to put my first name and the general month on the post? Is it possible that they would be able to find this out from some random forum on the internet with no proof that it was me? I am really creeped out by this, I might just be being totally naive but it seems pretty suspicious :/
I recently bought a package holiday deal for myself and my gf ..i paid on finance and have finally payed the holiday off. Fleetway told me that they don't send the tickets for the holiday until 2 weeks before you fly..but i've bought another holiday from travel republic and they gave me the tickets there and then for everything. Is this normal practise??
