General Discussion Area / scammed
« on: 28 November 2015, 20:25:19 »
SWMBO works at ASDA and is generally behind the lottery/cigarette kiosk. Today someone came and asked for cigarettes that came to around 400, paid for them by card. And then he decided that he also needed/wanted another 600 worth, the transaction also went thru OK - presumably on another card. He then asked for more, for which SWMBO said that she needed authorisation for ...... ASDA would be running out of ciggs themselves. As soon as a supervisor was mentioned he was packed up & disappeared.

As the more savvy amongst us has probably already guessed  ::) the cards he used were cloned. So ASDA/the banks are out of pocket today to the tune of 1000

After being on this desk/kiosk for the past couple of months, the management have finally told her that the limit for ciggy sales is 400 per person.

I think he picked his 'target' Had the 'offence' been by someone the size of Jason I suspect he'd had pedalled on down the road.

General Discussion Area / P poor customer service
« on: 20 November 2015, 20:38:51 »
Back in June I bought a replacement battery for my mobile from 4ourhouse. 5 months later the new battery is holding a charge not much better than the original, so I emailed them to tell them. A few day later I received an email from the to say that they said they would arrange for a courier (DPD) to collect it? I asked them to explain ....... their reply was that Unfortunately we have a refund and reorder policy which means you will be fully refunded from the previous order but if the parts are still required a new order would have to be placed.  ??? ???
I think I'll just buy from elsewhere & cut my losses with 4ourhouse & promise myself never to buy from them again. Piss poor returns procedure if you ask me

General Car Chat / Onstar
« on: 09 November 2015, 22:28:09 »
I notice that Vauxhall adverts are now advertising the fact that new Vauxhalls have access to Onstar. I wonder if the CCRT700 is compatible with it  :-\

General Car Chat / Pug 206 clutch
« on: 25 October 2015, 18:24:44 »
My daughter's boyfriend is currently being recovered back home with his broken Pug 206. the message so far is that the clutch auto adjuster is fubar'd. eBay has loads of cables for around 25/30 .... no idea what the dealers price would be.

Anyone have any experience of changing one? I've a feeling that this job will have my name on it in pencil  ;D ;D

General Discussion Area / Sutton Bank
« on: 21 September 2015, 18:29:46 »
Anyone live around Sutton Bank Yorkshire? I ask cos we're going that direction at the wek end while towing. The owner of the caravan site specifically said that caravans are banned, but having had a 'drive' via Google maps, I can only see a sign that tells HGVs to use a low gear. Surely if HGVs are allowed, then I am too. I'm sure that 376 torques can manage a little hill with a box on the back.

It's only 1 in 4 for the hairpin https://www.google.co.uk/maps/@54.2370934,-1.2101813,3a,31.5y,170.1h,77.7t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sK-qtsJ_fChtg1Mf_8TLOMg!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 .... what could possibly go wrong! ;D
