Opinion – Banks


Referring to the post by Chris regarding his bank account being blocked – it would be nice if the bank advised their customer of the block for what ever reason!  What happens to standing orders/direct debit payments if this happens I wonder?

Back to the box under the mattress.


(2) Chris, this is nothing new. Last year we had to do this at Cajamar, and also our bank in the UK. I think it was an EU-passed requirement. Not only do they want to know where your finances come from but proof of identity/location etc. It was hard enough getting it sorted here in Spain but First Direct, who we’ve banked with for around twenty years, were a complete and utter nightmare. I had to resort to sending Google Earth images of our house in Torrox campo along with a print out from the Registro office, and so much more. For those living in the countryside without an address recognised by the post office it can be a nightmare. I resorted to bombarding them with every piece of identity and proof of location possible. It took months to sort out, and in that time all sorts of restrictions were placed on our account. If anyone reading this hasn’texperienced this yet, don’t worry. You will,,,,.Nigel


Opinion – Scare Tactics ?

I would like to comment on the statement made 7th July by the person (Mark) whom obviously is trying to drum up some business by trying to scare people into picking up the phone and using his company to carry out any works required.

Not clever and not very ethical, perhaps the person in question should remember that these odd job people can sometimes only survive by doing what they do.

My suggestion – go out and tout for work without slagging others.

How to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail (dot) com

The subject line of the email should be what you’d like to see as your heading – otherwise, I choose a subject line

 Prices must be included with items for sale.

If your first attempt to sell fails, note that a second attempt will not be allowed unless the original price is reduced considerably, nor for at least 2 weeks later.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in JPG or JPEG Format

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”,    days of the week “Monday”

You must include contact details, either an email address or a telephone number in the text. If you don’t I cannot publish it. Often I cannot “extract “your email address from the email, so repeat it please.

This is not a service for local companies to exploit.

The decision about what to publish is mine, if I don’t want to publish then I won’t.

About Photos and other attachments

If you want to send a picture please send it as an attachment to your email, in JPG or JPEG format and try and keep the size down to around 200KB.

Please don’t send PDFs or Word documents.

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. 

New Rules for Blog

The rules for Blogs have changed and it now means that I could face a fine if I publish any negative reviews of any person or company – even though it may be true or half true.

 Thank you – Working together we can achieve so much!       Jane
