      Card Fraud

      We had the same with a company I once worked for. Expenses for the month on the company card signed off no problem one of the lads was early for a meeting so scanned his card statement prior to signing it. A few quid here and there at shell stations (funnily enough) so he passed it off as a sandwich on the run.... another transaction to ... bling blink phones (I kid you not) for a substantial amount. Turns out the card had been cloned months before and a quid or so taken every now and again, that turned into a few quid a few tunes a week then a few big transactions, if it wasn’t to such a stupid name he even then may not have twigged!

      Card Fraud

      I had mine done a while ago. It was a slush fund account so minimal account activity. I had made 2 payments, 1 to a big insurance company and 1 to a small country attire retailer. Turns out the banks have mapping softwares to analyse transactions and fraudulent activity. It was a woman in the account department of the small country company. She had set up PayPal accounts and eBay profiles and would create a buy it now auction for a random title with a buy it now then move the money this was back in the day where you could just use card details to create PayPal accounts without the need for the 3 digit on reverse. All the other info she had from the delivery details!
    3. Mine has gone up about £12 a month A majority of that is the county rise and a big increase in the adult and social care takings. The local charge increase is only about 50p a month plus an extra ‘special expenses’ levy on our area (the only special expenses levy in the town) i read the report that said this rise would allow us to keep the current service provision. The thing that I did notice that annoyed me was the minutes of the previous meeting were the state of the local coffers..... there was an outstanding amount based on unpaid social housing rent in arrears by 4 weeks + currently sitting at 1.4 million!!! But I need to pay a small amount to keep service levels???? also stated was the payment amount needed to move social housing tennants from sub standard accommodation into alternative housing due to the ‘disturbance’ this was averaged at 7k a house hold not including removal expenses and carpeting - with an expected need of 200 moves this year.
    4. We have a few and most people are pleasant surprised. They can hold their own on a long commute and yet pottering around are frugal enough. Never known one to play up but I don’t drive them that often. I do hear the moans of a small fuel tank meaning on long trips it may require a refuel before or during the trip home

      Vitamin B

      We used to get this taking vitamin supplements. If I recall my pee was flouro yellow others green perectly normal apparently when excess water soluble vitamins are being excreted.
    8. Luckily I did give it a squirt with washing up liquid and water then left it. Didnt really do a lot but I have put some loose soda powder over it tonight then tomorrow will wet it and give it another scrub. I just don’t want half the street thinking it’s me who has dropped diesel all up the road !!
    9. Thanks for the tips, its light colored tarmac
    10. Sometime over the weekend some kind soul has split a pool of Diesel on my drive (about a coke can full) along with the associated large spots from driving on and off (as well as a trail down the road) How would i go about cleaning it off, i assume it was done Saturday evening or Sunday day. Cheers
    11. I miss mine terribly. One of the comfiest cars I ever had and cost me nothing aside from consumables and a spring in nearly 100k aircon compressor jammed and threw the belt into the engine so was uneconomical to repair but saw it on the road for another 2 years after I sold it fir spares. Join the Volvo owners club there used to be a guy work in the parts department who would post out spares at trade prices (usually cheaper then non branded parts from the motor factors)

      Omega or Rolex

      I used to work with a guy who had an omega for a 40th present they finally made the last payment 3 years later. Madness

      Omega or Rolex

      I think a watch (or a pen) for a gentleman is like a set of diamond earrings or necklace for a lady, normally gifted on a milestone - seems to be the big old 40. Edited to add I have a ‘nice’ watch but it’s not a Rolex or omega I used to save it for best but the good lady moaned I never wore it normally. First outing clouted the face on a wall and put a deep scratch in it. Hey ho!!
    14. I have swapped maps by deleting one then adding the other - obviously swapping when I got home. Not sure if you can still do it but once purchased the maps remained on your ‘store’ there is a help section on Tom Tom support regarding cards and device compatibility
    15. I’m not sure. i suppose it ultimately based on the nationality of the mother - the cause of the issue.
