How to Deal with a Scam

If you get a scam email, don’t just delete it, move it to your spam, if not already there, then forward it to….nfibphishing@cityof-london.pnn.police.uk then delete it.

If it is from a company, also forward it to that company using the email addresses below…. to help your fellow man! Most will reply with thanks.

If you think you have been compromised a trick to use is log in to the website address you usually use, for say your bank but input a false password. If the site is dodgy it will accept it! Then stay clear and worry!

I really don’t understand why they don’t all use ‘spoof’!

Rental Registration Andalucia

Does anyone have any experience of getting the form necessary

to register under the new rental laws?

We have tried the Junta website but cannot find the document there.

Replies to john @ jday(dot)eu

We will send a post if we are successful.



Computer Help Needed 

I need some kind person out there to show me how to transfer my email contacts, from my BT internet account to my Gmail account.

I have tried but to no avail!  There are so many I can’t imagine trying to do this manually and feel there must be a way to transfer all

my contacts in one go.   I live in the Canillas de Albaida/Competa area.  Thank you.

Please do not send ads for property / real estate.

All formatting, pretty colours, bold, underlining, strange fonts etc are automatically removed.

Please – Don’t use all Block CAPITALS LIKE THIS or I may have to send it back for you to put into normal case (This is the way people normally write, with capital letters where appropriate – such as “I” and place names “Malaga”, makers’ names such as “Electrolux”,

Your email address must be quoted in this forrmat…I insert spaces within the address so that nasty software can’t steal their address for spam purposes – e,g, my address is correctly   janekirkspain@gmail,com

if it were a Contributor’s address I’d insert spaces thus –

janekirkspain @ gmail,com.

So all you do is remove those spaces before contacting a contributor.
