Spoof & Phishing….

Hi Jane, following the Endesa spoof or phishing info, it may be helpful to publish this list of email addresses. If you are suspicious of any email that you have opened, from any of these companies, forward it to them. Whatever you do, don’t click on anything in the email. After you’ve sent it, delete it.

If no companies are involved in the email, like the scams offering millions of pounds for your info, called ‘Nigerian 149 Scams’, forward them to the UK Police NFIB site. If you’re careful you can even scambait the scammers,

Cheers, Keith, Travelin’, wotsapninatgmaildotcom

Recommendation Car Air Comditioning Services etc

Others have already recommended Chris at cpaircon but can we add our voice to that.  When our car was serviced at the beginning of the summer we asked the mechanic to check the air con, he did and added a regas to the bill.  When we next drove the car it was evident it was worse.  We went back and he claimed to fix it, still no joy.  Fearing a serious problem we thought we would get a second opinion from CPaircon – as recommended by Digamextra.  Chris turned up at our house, he has all the equipment and all the knowledge.  He told us there was not enough gas in the air con, and explained why there could be problems re-gassing the air con on our car, a Renault.

He emptied, cleaned it of air and moisture and re gassed it, all for a very reasonable charge. That was a few weeks ago, it is working brilliantly, possibly the most effective it has ever been and most welcome on these hot days.

A big thank you to Chris and a recommendation to use his service – he really knows what he is doing.

Tel: 0034 649 307 966  E-mail: chris @ cpaircon.com       Web: www. cpaircon.com



Recommendation- Tony Roam Removals

I would like to say a big thank you to Tony and the crew for the way in which they recently moved the contents of my Villa back to Spalding in the UK.

I was told by two other companies that I had between 25 to 30 cubic meters and that because of the size of the load it would probably go over the weight limit and that I might need two Luton vans.

When I spoke with Tony his estimate came in at a lot less even though I had made him aware of the other two quotes and my urgent needs to vacate my villa he calmly told me with careful and considerate packing he could condense it to below 20 cubic meters and because of the vans they use there would be no worries about the weight as they can move 3 tonne at a time.

On the day to suit my schedule they turned up on time with three men ready to do the work.

All I had to do was point and say as was the case on unloading three months later as unexpectedly I had problems with my property in the UK and could not move in on the proposed date.

Tony stored free of charge with no hassle in his UK warehouse.

I was eventually charged for 18 cubic meters 1,000 Euros cheaper than the lowest quote.

Thank you once again Tony for your Integrity. Also thank you to Ryan and Marc for all your hard work and tireless effort it was a pleasure to have met you.

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.

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
