Scam of the year

Posted on Wednesday 14th December 2011

A company called XS-Clearance has sold me a domestic appliance on eBay back in October 2011. XS-Clearance labelled this domestic appliance as a manufacturer’s refurbished item with 90 days manufacturer’s warranty. On the advert, XS-Clearance has put down its contact details as Thomas Roy, Unit 81 Whiteladies Estate, Clifton, Bristol BS1 3TT, United Kingdom. The telephone number is 0845 3016824 and email address is ebay@cc-promotions.co.uk. VAT number is UK 585166021. …read more

Unhappy Audi Owner

Posted on Wednesday 12th October 2011

It is a tricky one to start because I really don’t know where and how to start this. I have had my Audi for over 10 years now and I think it is time for me to label myself a proper ‘unhappy Audi owner’!
