  1. i received an email from bt yesterday telling me my 'deal' for broadband was coming to and end and they had 'special offers especially for me' on looking all the deals were more expensive than the one i had so did a price comparison check and booked broadband with another supplier to change on 8 mar....then had an email from bt saying i had broken the contract by leaving early!!! despite the email saying my deal was ending...anyway it transpires it is ending a month early 8 mar instead of the 8 may...now i dont mind paying for month which seems reasonable but they also want me to pay 55 quid for the router which i never wanted....offered to return said router but no...now does anyone think that this price is disproportionate and i should stand my ground and not pay it or pay it and say never again!!!
  2. General question, all these debt help companies in the media saying how they will clear your debts, if you don' t have a mortgage what is in it for them.. Or do they cherry pick the best cases? Must make a profit somehow

    Wonderful DVLA

    Our wonderful, highly efficient DVLA has all your info on computer, so that when you want to tax your car they know if it's insured and MOTd. Transaction can be done over the net. They also offer a service wherebye you can select and purchase a private registration plate on the net. So how is it that they inform me it takes at least 5 WEEKS to send me a new V5 for a car i purchased privately???? Why can't this relatively simple task be completed by computer???
  4. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich, a great equalizer. The professor then said, "OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Socialist's plan". All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A.... (substituting grades for dollars - something closer to home and more readily understood by all). After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy. As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little. The second test average was a D! No one was happy. When the 3rd test rolled around, the average was an F. As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else. To their great surprise, ALL FAILED and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed. These are possibly the 5 best sentences you'll ever read and all applicable to this experiment: 1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. 2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it! 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that is the beginning of the end of any nation.
  5. Hi Guys, Hi Rene and PDL Victim Just been popping in now and again, but i have a friend who needs some advice, so reaching out to all of you. She has a loan with swift sterling, which is due to be repaid on the 10th of this month, but like many of us, has been doing the loan and repayment pattern for way to long, and she just doesn't have the means to repay the loan this month. Its not for a huge amount, but my advice to her was to cancel her agreement within the fourteen days, and tell them she was suffering financial hardship, and that she'd like to set up a weekly payment plan to clear her loan and close her account. Silly me, i keep forgetting that they don't play ball! Although from what i've read, they do set up repayment plan when it suits. When she cancelled her agreement, they emailed and said someone would be intouch shortly, 3 days later an email stating that the original loan would have to be repaid by the 27th of July, by this time it was the 28th! They then stated if funds could not be taken on the 10/8, there would be a default charge of £59.00 added, then it would be passed to an account manager and if the funds are not repaid - no specified timescale, it would be passed on to a DCA. I personally think their tactics are shocking, but its kinda left her in limbo! On my advice, she's started paying a weekly amount to them, 2 payments now made diirect to their bank account, and an email to swift stating that payments have been made and for some kind of acknowledgement. Nothing. She was at my house this morning, and has tried to log into her swift sterling account online and its blocking her! Any advice guys? I really don't know what her next move should be. She's in a bit of a state. Cheers in advance, Grumpy x
