Endesa – further warning

There’s need for a bit more vigilance around the Endesa scam than just the fake bills.  It seems that the scammers have got hold of Endesa’s client database, otherwise how can they e-mail us?  As many of us pay by Direct Debit there is the risk that they may also have got that banking information, so we all need to watch our bank accounts and make sure that no fraudulent debits are set up on the account.  If they are, then contact your Bank immediately – banks have no desire to become embroiled in fraud and they will help.

In their response Endesa appear to have taken a leaf from the many UK companies that lose client data, apparently with no sanction against them – a bit of ritual hand wringing, a few platitudes and they tell us that we “need to watch out”!

Regards and thanks also to Jane for her patience and hours of unpaid good work – she deserves a bouquet..



Help Needed with MacBook

Just bought a Epson inkjet printer to use with MacBook Air. Followed instructions for set-up including wi-fi but guess what? When trying to print something get the message printer not connected. The printer is obviously set-up and working OK as printed wirelessly from my iPad without problem. Have trawled the web but without success.

Any suggestions welcome.

Suspect this problem will crop up again for other folk so if any of you wizzy silver-surfers have any ideas.   lky0886 @ gmail.com

 Recommendation- Car  Treatment

Our elderly car was looking rather disheveled & sorry for itself.

With some scratches and faded paintwork and Warren collected it and left a loan vehicle for us in the interim whilst he performed what can only be described as magic to our vehicle!

And at a really reasonable price.

He also applied a protective coating to the paint to prevent the car from fading over the next year.
He comes highly recommended by us, you can get him on 618 346 098
