  1. A company with whom I hold an account and have made purchases from in the past have sent me a guitar I didnt order. The guitar was added to my account with a price of £0.00. The guitar duly arrived Addressed to me at my address, it came with an invoice that listed the guitar and a price of £0.00. 2 weeks pass and the company have now emailed asking for the guitar back. Im fairly certain that although they may have made an error, I am covered by the unsolicited goods act and am under no legal obligation to return it. Can anyone help me clarify this ?
  2. Frankly I feel that it's probably a bot. I don't know if there's a real Katie Chamberlain or whether they have simply picked some name out of the blue and I can't see what it has to do with smile cloud services Anyway, here's the recording of an unsolicited call. call_16-52-49_IN_01130859953.mp3 Internet searches seem to show that this is not an isolated case. If anyone has further information as to how it works then please post it here. This call was recorded automatically on an android mobile phone. Read our customer services guide
  3. Has anyone else noticed premium rate incoming texts on vodafone bill? Vodafone are obviously profiting from this as they collect the money, take a commission and then pass it on to the 'service' providers - apparaently I can't use a word that sounds like 'scrammer' Apologies if there is already a thread about this but i couldn't find it if there is
  4. Hi All, I had was involved in a RTA back in January; happy to say not serious and not my fault. Third Party admitted liability, so I made a direct claim to their insurers, who promptly arranged for repairs to my car, arranged a hire car, and paid out a sum to my passenger in injury compensation. I didn’t make a personal injury claim at the time as I didn’t experience any effects that I could attribute to the accident. However just about a week later I did experience a stiff neck and shoulder pain, also pain down my arm, I knew that it must’ve been as a direct result of t
  5. I don't consider myself to be stupid.. but I am not sure what I need to do with this. I received through the post a letter addressed to me, enclosing a card for Amazon Prime - 30 day free trial. I am a regular Amazon customer buying books for my Kindle - I have never indicated in anyway that I would like to take up this service and have never purchased/downloaded videos from them either. My question is, bearing in mind the above that I have never requested this, do I now have to go and cancel this trial or will they automatically bill me £79.00 ??
  6. Not quite sure which forum to put this one but I think its worth sharing.... Over the last few weeks, we appear to be getting an increased level of cold calls and known [problem] calls. Some on mobiles but some on main home land-line. Not unusual in itself but it appears that there may be new technology out there, that spoofs your caller display into showing you a number with your own towns dialing pre-fix. When you see a call coming in from your own town, you naturally think its a genuine call. We've had 2 separate calls this week where we actually hung on until someone s
  7. Hi just looking for some advice, a few weeks ago i asked one or two companies in china for a quote on their product "zorb balls" as i was thinking of starting up my own business, i received the quotes and in the end didn't bother buying from them. Today for some strange reason i received a delivery from DHL and when i opened the boxes they had the zorballs in them and are from a company in china that i have never even heard of.. the goods are worth around £3000. i have an invoice from dhl stating i owe them £50.08 for duty and vat. I have no idea what to do.. any advice would be great tha
  8. Hi All, I've recently started receiving texts and most recently a call from what appears to be Motormile finance. The first text referred to Mayday debt offers but also was addressed to someone else, hence i ignored it as it seemed to be the usual unsolicited spam. Since then ive had several more with the following text: It is very important that we speak to you please contact our office urgently on 01138876876 MMF ref. (ref number) along with a missed call from a similar number which traces back to Motormile finance. My question is: As i am obviously not the
  9. Have been with Asda Mobile since 2009 with no problems. Just over two weeks ago I started receiving text messages from Asda Mobile regarding set up details for Internet and picture messaging. Over the past few days I have had over forty messages. It makes no difference if I accept the settings or not. I have contacted their customer services.... nine people in all. Some advisors have confirmed the sending of set up texts has been disabled.... no effect they still keep on coming. Other advisors have said they cannot stop the text messages and claimed I have a fault with my sim car
