  1. In simple terms when my housemate moved out the water bill wasnt paid for maybe 6 months then when it was not enough to clear the arrears. Not through avoidance more confusion and as soon as I realised I upped the weekly amount to cover the arrears asap. To my horror then a month ago I get an equifax alert showing red 4s and delinquent date for that last few months. I figured no point dwelling on it and knew it was about a week from being caught up but was still annoyed as ive spent a few years tidying my history up a bit. To be clear they were not even on my credit record before this. yesterday another alert to say it had been removed. Does this make sense?, I was under the impression it would now be on there for 6 years. I guess i'm just wondering if this is a mistake and its likely to reappear or if this is how utility companies do it ie only add while in arrears?. I'm sure there are others that have been in a similar situation so would be useful to know.
  2. I know Chris very well and have done for many years. Sadly it seems I'm another one of his victims. I paid Chris £600 upfront in January this year to repaint my mk 4 golf anniversary. He stated that as the body shop side of his business was quiet over winter he could do mine between other jobs and it would be done in 3-4 weeks from then. Nearly 6 months later and I'm still waiting. The car is sat in the same place I parked it back in January. Last month (April) I had a talk with him and told him I wanted the car and cash back and that i would get the work done elsewhere. He promised to crack on with it and days later the bumpers, lights etc were removed, now we are back to square one with my car sat rotting away. It's been there that long there's 3mm of tree sap caked on the car. Chris avoids replying to my texts. I've been told by a very good friend of Chris's that he has over 40 cars waiting for extensive restoration work the majority of customers having paid upfront all to lavish Chris's lifestyle. His friend admitted he doubted any of the cars would ever get done and that it was only a matter of time before he 'Did a flit' back to his belovied Cornwall. His working week consists of 3 days now. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. On Thursday evening he travels down to Cornwall returning Tuesday. He's well aware of the comments on this forum and reckons most is liable and that he's tried several times to get it taken down but to no avail. Posts claiming people have served court papers on him are also false according to him with most of the negative comments coming from a disgruntled ex member of staff that was sacked - the guy lives in fairy land. I don't know how the guy has the brass neck to continue taking money off people.
  3. Hi Guys, I want to apply for a 0% credit card to do a balance transfer but a couple of days ago I viewed a property that I want to buy with a buy to let mortgage. I already own several BTL properties but my concern is about applying for both within the same timeframe. I was wondering how long it takes for credit applications to appear on our credit file? I would like to apply for both this coming week.
  4. Mohammed Emwazi has been hunted by security forces every since he began appearing is sick terror videos Live updates on link and i suppose TV everywhere. 99% Certain he is dead. Reports saying they have been tracking him for a while. Security services Monitoring chat to see what is being said. Everything will become clearer as the day goes on. David Cameron to speak later. It is claimed there were 14 airstrikes. A Twitter account linked with local anti-ISIS campaigners have shared insight into the airstrike. #Raqqa Drone Strike on 11:51 PM Targeted a car near Clock tower #ISIS Close all the area not allowed any one to approach #Syria The Prime Minister will be making a public statement on the strike later on today Downing Street working 'hand in glove' with US on ISIS Live updates. http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/world-news/jihadi-john-live-updates-isis-6823006 Back in September-2015 EXCLUSIVE: 'There's drones in the air!' How paranoid Jihadi John lives in fear of death from above - as revealed by two men who had a terrifying car ride with ISIS knifeman Jihadi John acted as a driver for distinguished visitors to the Islamic State They described the British ISIS executioner as 'aggressive' and 'threatening' http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3227891/There-s-drones-air-ISIS-executioner-Jihadi-John-s-fear-death-revealed-men-hid-civilians-Iraqi-football-pitch-avoid-missile-strike.html Dead body of "important British Jihadi" lying in Raqqa hospital The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights has released a full statement on claims that a British Jihadi was killed in Raqqa following an airstrike. Rami Abdulrahman, director of the UK-based organisation, did not name Jihadi John however. A car carrying four foreign Islamic State leaders, including one British Jihadi was hit by US air strikes right after the governorate building in Raqqa city. All the sources there are saying that the body of an important British Jihadi is lying in the hospital of Raqqa. All the sources are saying it is of Jihadi John but I cannot confirm it personally. How will spies confirm if Jihadi John is dead? Intercepted communications, human intelligence, photographs and even DNA could confirm that Jihadi John is dead. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/middleeast/syria/11993401/How-will-spies-confirm-if-Jihadi-John-is-dead.html Jihadi John 'dead': US officials believe Raqqa drone strike killed Mohammed Emwazi Officials have said they are '99 per cent' sure the Isis militant was killed in a drone strike in Raqqa http://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/home-news/jihadi-john-killed-us-officials-confirm-mohammed-emwazi-is-dead-after-raqqa-drone-strike-a6732741.html Another official speaking to ABC News described the air strike that as a “flawless” and “clean hit” that “evaporated” Emwazi without killing civilians. By the sounds of things there may be only possibilities of DNA that will identify this man. I had better leave things at that for now. The fog of war takes time to clear so you know the facts.
  5. In past versions of Windows, Microsoft has allowed users to configure how they want operating system updates to be delivered. Those looking for the ultimate protection configure Windows Update to automatically install them, while others may, accidentally or not, disable the feature or postpone installing any updates for a very, very long time. I have seen systems that last had updates installed years before I was asked to troubleshoot them. With Windows 10, however, Microsoft is taking matters into its own hands, by making automatic updates mandatory. This applies to both home and business users, unless the latter group turns to dedicated tools that allow them to have more control over how updates are installed. Basically, you have to go out of your way to keep Windows 10 out of date. The most up to date Windows 10 licensing agreement, from build 10240, says the following: Updates. The software periodically checks for system and app updates, and downloads and installs them for you. You may obtain updates only from Microsoft or authorized sources, and Microsoft may need to update your system to provide you with those updates. By accepting this agreement, you agree to receive these types of automatic updates without any additional notice. Microsoft has confirmed that this will, indeed, be the case going forward, with a company spokesperson saying that "The license terms for Windows 10 require Automatic Updates be enabled as a part of keeping our customers secure and delivering Windows as a service". As I said before, it will be possible for some users to tweak this behavior, but I believe it will be limited to enterprises, which naturally want more control over such things. Personally, I welcome Microsoft's approach, as, based on my experience, there are plenty of Windows users who need to be protected against themselves. Some can be so ill-informed that they will disable Windows Update simply because they do not want to deal with the notifications that pop up when their systems have not been updated in a long time. They will expose their systems and personal data without realizing it, then they will blame Microsoft or other parties for the performance of their system. Of course, Microsoft can expect some Windows users to have a problem with this. There are legitimate cases when having Windows Update download lots of updates can interfere with certain tasks, but, for the average user, this should not be a problem. It can also be argued that some updates need to be "proven" before they are applied, but, again, times when such issues occur can be very rare. Another thing to note is that, by making automatic updates mandatory, Microsoft will be making it easier to keep users' systems current after releasing major Windows 10 updates, not just minor updates and security fixes. If, for instance, there will be a Windows 10.1 in the foreseeable future, it could be possible to have it automatically install right after being made available. Such an approach would make it possible to avoid the Windows 8.x update disaster, where there are still lots of users -- 2.9 percent of all PC users, to be exact, which is more than Windows Vista has -- running Windows 8 despite Windows 8.1 being offered as a free upgrade. This is a problem that Microsoft does not want to deal with again, if it is possible to avoid it (and it is), because it hurts it in the long run. Source: WinBeta
  6. We all (hopefully) know that continuing to use Windows XP is a risky business. The operating system stopped receiving security patches from Microsoft in April 2014, which means anyone still relying on the platform is at risk of being impacted by vulnerabilities that are being fixed in more modern versions of the operating system. In other words, XP users are living in a state of perpetual zero-day. But, perhaps you decided to persist with Windows XP, despite the pleas from Microsoft to give it up, and the advice of security professionals. Maybe you decided to run a freebie anti-virus solution like Microsoft Security Essentials on your XP computers in an attempt to protect yourself from the uptick in vulnerability threats and malware attacks. Well, now you have an additional problem. Because Microsoft officially ends XP support for its Malicious Software Removal Tool and updates for Microsoft Security Essentials today. Actually it ended on the 14th
