Endesa email scam – urgent

I have received two emails today pretending to be from Endesa (Factura electronica de Endesa) and including my name in the subject.

The email says there is a new invoice available and invites you to click on a link to access it.

These are scam emails so do not click on the link.

Fortunately I had previously received an email from Endesa advising that these fraudulent emails are in circulation and that clicking on the link will download a virus.

If you preview the email you will see that it has not come from Endesa.

Regards, Alan



Abandoned Cat

abandon 01 Abandon 02

My elderly neighbours in Torrox Pueblo owned this cat who is a 6 year old neutered female. Sadly, the old man died, his wife was too old and frail to

stay in the village house and unfortunately their cat was abandoned.

She went missing for a while and then reappeared and decided to seek refuge

in my house.

She was in a sorry state, thin, bedraggled and with a nasty wound to her tail. Fortunately the vet found that it was infected but not broken.

She is on a course of antibiotics.
I cannot keep her. My cat hates her, always has, chasing her off whenever she ventured too close.

I’m having to keep her in isolation. She is quite sweet and affectionate and is housetrained. She cannot be put back on the street as she clearly cannot cope.

I would be willing to arrange for her to be chipped and for this year’s injections

if someone could take her in.
Please contact me on 675 365 147.


Importing pet cat from UK to Spain

Grateful to any Digamites who will share their experience of importing a pet cat from UK to Spain.

We’re currently considering the best way of bringing our lovely 12 year old tabby from the south of England over to Spain, either by air or car.  We’d welcome any recommendations/suggestions about travel arrangements from people who have already brought over their cat.

Please reply to pichlerhaus @ yahoo dot co dot uk

Where & How to get answers to Archez Development Plans

I am a local resident that was made aware of the road closure and merely wished to inform locals prior to the commencement of the works.
The issue regarding possible future erection of barriers is a matter for Archez town hall.The subscriber is obviously concerned  therefore I would suggest that enquirers be made at Archez town hall. Councillor Phil is the foreigners representative at the town hall,he would be able to answer this query if contacted.


Los Barriles is moving to Calle Gloria a few doors from El Molino                          It’s still under construction but is due to open in late June.


Tax Advice – Thanks

Many thanks to all those (several respondents) who recommended their tax adviser. I now have a plethora of choices. Good old (and young) Digamites!
A lady contacted me asking for the same information, so I’ll pass those on to her too.


Information- Sausages !!

Does anyone know here l can buy a particular type of sausage?

It originates  from South Africa and it is called a Boerewors.

What’s on- Trip to the Alpujarras

Friday 24th June sees the Phoenix Club off on a jolly visiting the villages of Trevelez and Pampaneira in the Alpujarras.

The Alpujarras was the last stronghold of the Moors. High up on the Mediterranean side of the Sierra Nevada, south of Granada, these villages were sufficiently remote to offer a safe home for the Moors some time after the Catholic Kings had re-conquered the rest of Spain. The Moorish influence is obvious in the architecture of the villages. Because the villages are so high in the mountains this there will still be snow on the higher mountains. Mulhacén, the highest mountain in mainland Spain can be seen.

The terracing and the irrigation of the hillsides (the “Alta Alpujarra”) was the work of Berbers, who inhabited this area after the Moorish invasion of 711 AD. They also created villages on the hillsides in the style to which they were accustomed in the mountains of North Africa: narrow, winding streets and small flat-roofed houses.

Trevelez is famous for it Iberivco hams and cherries and we will also be visiting the quaint village of Pampaneira which has the smallest chocolate factory which you can visit.
Pick ups? A1 Garden Centre, Torre del Mar, Algarrobo Lidl and Maro.
Time? 09.00 at Torre del Mar bus station, 09.15 at Algarrobo and 09.25 ish at Maro
Price?  €18pp lunch extra
For more information or to book call Gail on 951067723, email phoenixsocialclub@yahoo.co.uk or catch us on the web at www.phoenixsocialclub.co.uk.
The Phoenix Club is a registered association raising funds for 3 local charities and Help4Heroes in the UK.  We meet every tuesday  at the Bar/Restaurant La Vega in Torre del Mar between 12 and 2 pm.  Bookings/payments can be made from 12.15 onwards.
