  1. It might be a bellend question but what do you do with the points ?, it's not "Anything on the bottom level please lovey !" and then I end up with a Bros keyring is it ?
  2. No, had to put a PayPal claim in and they eventually coughed up. There still advertising but now there saying "Low on stock, grab one quick"....so I emailed them and said "So have you got the phone at hand in shop for immediate mailing ?" their response was "No, we are still trying to source out stock were not sure when". Steer clear they are frauds
  3. Has anyone used these https://www.eglobalcentraluk.com/ I placed an order 8th April for a phone for a present thinking I was giving them plenty of time as the birthday is only on the10th May but the friggin thing is still showing "Processing" in my order tracking. What p&sses me off is, their still taking orders for the same phone but they've just emailed me saying they don't have stock and are trying to source out stock 3 fookin weeks since I placed my order. I only ordered from here because it was £70 cheaper but turns out they never had them in the first place even though I asked before ordering "Do you have the phone in stock to ship asap ?" and they replied yes. totally utter fookin annoying rant !!
  4. Always remember, it's a gentleman's agreement. Lets say the bookie"thinks" or they have a hunch something's not right with your bet they can simply cancel the bet before it takes place regardless. You can complain say to the IBAS but the chances are very slim. they claimed back 7000 in 2017 but they dont say how many complaints were made and lost. As me owd fella use to say, you never a bookie driving a clapped out Ford Escort. Some years ago I had a bet and should have won close on £2000, I placed an each way 3 horse bet ...3 ew doubles 1 ew treble. 2 won at v.g odds ans 3rd was second at huge odds was around 50/1 so the ew treble was the main winner. I went to collect and, the small independant bookie handed me a about £150-200 something like that. I asked him wtf he said no no are rules on this type of bet are different from all the rest. We don't use "win win place place" ,,,are default bet on this type of bet is "ew all ew" which pays more if all 3 win but if one horse doesn't it pays far far less. Now considering my type of bet and odds I was always looking at all 3 to be placed but been truthful never all 3 to win. I never calculated my bet on ew all ew or I would have written that on. He said if you wanted win win place place you should have written it on the slip. Now every bookie at that time in the land default be on a 3 horse ew bet was win win place place not ex all ew. Lets say at that time I went to say a Ladbrokes and placed my bet there if I wanted ex all ew I would have to write that on the slip but no with the bookie I put it on with. If I wanted win win place place at any other bookies I did not need to write win win place place as this was the default bet. So I said , were the fook does it say that in here ?? he said over there and freshly put up tucked away right in the corner on the size of 1/2 a A4 sheet was a freshly typed up rule explaining this. I wrote to the bookies arbitration of the time and got told basically its a gentleman's agreement and I should have read the rules. My point been, bookies rules are different, they can do as they please when they want and how they fook the like it. If they think you are arbitrage betting or anything remotely similar which is what you're saying they ban you and cancel your bet without notice. So if you care doing these bet on both and win ? , always be prepared for one of them to be cancelled which is exactly what happened to me. Little did I know that, some obscere Asian bookie I laid one half of my bet with was owned by the same firm I placed the other half with and they cancelled 1 bet Bookies do not like match betting and if found they can and will ban you but they like to ban you while your bets ready to go or 1 half of the bet has took place.
  5. There is money to be made granted but once those sign up offers run out it becomes that much harder and your stake up and up to make less and less and so does the risk factor because it is NOT risk free. I've tried it and you can can make money (at first) and you can get stung especially when a bookie cancels half of the bet for no apparent reason which they can do. Their terms and conditions read like the fookin Magna Carta & War and Peace stitched together. How do I know this ? , lets say I found out the hard way. Alot of the bookies are under one roof same as the high street loan shark companies. Some of the obscure ones abroad are linked so once they flag up on their systems you have account here and one there and you've placed the bet , , bump ! they hit the cancel button on one of the bets.
  6. bit old but, if you want it rapid bonding epoxy resin from a pound shop mixh the two tubes together, will be rock solid in 20mins otherwise the usual liquid nails all them mastic gun type glues would do.
  7. I'll resurrect an old thread, Cheltenham's just round the corner, anything you got your eye on that's worthy of a quid or 2 ?
  8. He's a pro at taking then dumping. I'm sorry to say it but the only way you'll get at the likes of him will be outside of the law. There's a rule for them and a rule for us
  9. Here's my son's bands 2nd release, "Della Noirs - Perfect Strangers" If you have Spotify please add them to your playlist or forward the link on to whoever might wanna give it a listen. Every little hit helps them massively , big thanks to all much appreciated;-
  10. Good to hear, you see, I have taken out loads of basic car insurance and I have yet dropped on one that's time start finish specific other than midnight 12 bells as the start and end. Never have I seen a time date stamped unless requested say 5:30 on the 12/12/2017 etc. I would request a copy of the insurance policy and check were it states this time. Try online filling in a form and see if you can spot were you can pick your time rather than date. The one rule though Clint, never make an offer, that's holding your hand up to something that might not be your fault
  11. He was driving back to work simples, whether he stops off for a MacDonalds or a pish he's taking it back to work on behalf of the company and therefor should be legally covered. Are you saying you are only insured if it's used actually in work hours ??. So he'll not be covered going to work ??. m8 it's a straight forward case of , the company failed to make sure the vehicle or did not inform him it was not covered. So what if he went the gym in the morning and had the accident on the way to work ? , not covered ??. Me, all the feckin way I'd go with this. Get yourself a solicitor, pay £50 and get 1/2 hour with one. It seems to me you have already made the decision to cough up and save solicitor fee's because your convinced you'll lose anyway I know I wouldn't. Your reading far too much into it. They loaned him a vehicle without telling him it had no insurance, were's the hard bit to understand in that ?. The company failed not your son
  12. Meaning, he's after:- "National Recovery" not "Local Recovery"
  13. My son's breakdown is due up so I'm shopping around and I noticed alot of the cheaper offers and some very stringent Terms & Conditions, one been recovery. Start Rescue say that, if you breakdown and it's non repairable then they will tow you to the nearest garage from the breakdown point or, if it's out of hours then to either your destination or home "WHICHEVER IS NEAREST" . My son travels to and fro Yorkshire and back from Lancashire so if he breaks down I would prefer the car coming here or the garage round the corner not to fookin sat Leeds or Sheffield at night then dumped for us to tow home. I'm sick of looking so does anyone know of a company that do this bring you home or to a designated garage of your choice ?. Alos no excess, and min 3 call outs a year ?. Sick of looking
  14. I think your son should step up a gear and get some legal advise. His boss should have informed him what day/time it was to run out and if he didn't and let him drive "his" van then it's the boss's fault. For insurance, s.143(3) of the RTA 1988 gives:(3)A person charged with using a motor vehicle in contravention of this section shall not be convicted if he proves—(a)that the vehicle did not belong to him and was not in his possession under a contract of hiring or of loan,(b)that he was using the vehicle in the course of his employment, and(c)that he neither knew nor had reason to believe that there was not in force in relation to the vehicle such a policy of insurance or security as is mentioned in subsection (1) above. I
  15. Well if the vehicle is owned by his boss/company and he is driving it on their behalf then it is up to the company not the driver to make sure everything is in place. So if you drive a bread van delivery van for AO.com do you ask "Er, is this insured ??" no, this is the responsibility of the company and will be held responsible for any problems that occur. Your son's names not on the doc's so he was told yes it's insured. Get your son to put this forward that the "owner" is responsible for the maintenance and upkeep of all documents for the van. What the law says and does and 2 different things it's how you put your side of the story over. I know that if it were me they'd stand no chance and my boss would cough up meaning I lose my job. Did your son know the actual time details of the insurance or just the day to day time period ?. Someone did and didn't say so how can that be your son's fault. Don't listen to some folk, their the back scratch crew who roll over and say there's nout I can do. If he didn't know he didn't know and if he did then he will have to pay.
