  1. A British man who flew to Germany using his girlfriend's passport only realised the mistake when he had arrived at his destination - having gone through security. Josh Reed, who is 6 ft 3 and has a beard, travelled from London Stansted to Dortmund on a Ryanair flight with petite brunette Sophie's ID, reports The Sun . According to the 21-year-old, security at the gate only checked his boarding pass, meaning he only spotted that he had the wrong travel documents when he landed in Germany. But at no point did anyone else notice that he wasn't girlfriend Sophie Watkins. http://www.msn.com/en-gb/travel/news/bearded-british-man-flies-to-germany-using-his-girlfriends-passport-and-nobody-notices/ar-BBqh7He?li=BBoPOOl&ocid=iehp
  2. Fox News anchor Harris Faulkner sues Hasbro over hamster toy A Fox News anchor is suing a US toy company, Hasbro, for more than $5m (£3.3m) over a toy hamster that she says resembles her and shares her name. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-34133723
  3. Hi all, Some background before my question... I live overseas and have been paying off very old debts by way of F&F payments for the past few months. I am left with two small HSBC debts and a Capquest one which was originally a loan from a bank. Capquest have purchased this debt. My credit file is blank as the defaults all dropped off many years ago. I've been making token payments for the last 8 or 9 years but have recently stopped. I'm just wondering what the typical collection pattern is for Capquest? I'll start receiving their threat letters soon so I want to know what to expect from them. Do they tend to sell the debts on after a certain amount of letter attempts? I will be paying it off at some point, to avoid any future troubles if I ever move to the UK again, but a F&F is not possible in its current state as it's around the 10k mark... I'm assuming that each time it is sold on to a new DCA, the F&F amount they will accept will get less and less. Many thanks in advance.
  4. Hello Over the last few weeks I have ordered (online) various pre-packed mince beef. Each product is labelled as typically containing % fat on their website BUT When it's delivered each one has a higher fat content that stated on their website. The retailer cites 'typical' which I think is not right as I've yet to receive a typical pack! The consumer has to trust the descriptions to make their choice!

  7. Has it become normal for the landlords to try and appropriate the deposit by threatening legal action for more than the deposit? My former landlord has come up with a spurious (in my opinion) list of charges and claims I owe him 2x the deposit but he will be kind and accept just the deposit if I write a letter saying it belongs to him and not sue me. Anyone seen this before?
