Re: Credit card magnetic strip

This was always happening to me with my Unicaja card whilst in Spain, it never happens to any of my UK cards though which is odd.

Can't stand the place, crowded, conjested ghetto town, we only used to go there for the Morrisons to stock up on veggie foods, couldn't wait to get out of the place, wouldn't live there if I was offered a free place.

Excellent letter, so much of it is true in so many cases too, some people we vaguely knew found out we might be doing B&B in spain and said they would come out and see us, we said we would do it half price for them as a favour but we didn't hear from them after that, I think they were expecting ...

Was shocked at how low the levels of Lake Vinuela were when we went down there on Monday, with at least the next 6 months likely to be very dry it will be desperate by October.

Sorry for bumping an old thread guys, but I tried this forum about a year ago and it was down and presumed it had shut down! - Anyway, we finally sold up in August 2006, it took over two years to sell, I understand the market out there is similar if not worse now though, with the euro at €1.19 to th...

Excellent, many thanks Hillbilly, I phoned the number and it only took a minute and I have my phone working again now :) That's a relief, although it makes a bit of a mockery of it all to be honest as I didn't have to give my name, nie or any details to get a new PUK number given to me so could have...

I have known agents add as much as 100% commission (vendor wanted 180,000 and agent put it on for 360,000), if you look at local magazines/papers you will often see the same property several times for different prices with different agents, it must confuse buyers and put them off.
