Avoiding Fraud

According to fraud body Financial Fraud Action (FFA), there were more than a million cases between January and June this year, with someone falling victim on average every 15 seconds.

To help you avoid becoming another statistic, FFA has provided five simple tips.

  1. Never disclose security details, such as your PIN or full password – it’s never right to reveal these details.
  2. Never assume an email request or caller is genuine – people aren’t always who they say they are.
  3. Don’t be rushed – a bank or genuine organisation won’t mind waiting to give you time to stop and think.
  4. Listen to your instincts – if something feels wrong then it is usually right to pause and question what’s happening.
  5. Stay in control – have the confidence to refuse unusual requests for information.

One item not covered is Direct Debits. With your bank details…. they are on every cheque…. a Direct Debit can be set up on your account by anyone, as Mister-Motor-Mouth found out to his cost! It is up to you to check your bank account regularly and report anything suspicious to your bank! the banks don’t tell you a direct debit has been setup…. but they should have to!

Cheers, Keith



Services Needed – Musicians for playing Beatles songs for fun.

Looking for musicians. Could be guitar, keyboard, bass, percussions, chorus voice. I am a lead singer and rythmguitarist.

Prof or amateur, old or young, rich or poor, educated or not, pretty or ugly – does not matter.

Only demands are that you love The Beatles songs and that you are not a pure beginner.

Situated in Competa but whole Axarquia is okay.

October and November this year – and continue next year as we find out.

If interested I can send you lists with a lot of Beatles songs you can choose among. Mail to brandtoft @ yahoo.dk



Services Wanted –Specialist Tea & Coffee Shop

I believe I heard a couple of years ago that there was a specialist tea and coffee shop somewhere in Torrox Costa. Is this true? Is it still open? If so, where is it? I’m more interested in getting hold of some decent tea rather than coffee – large-leaf Assam, Russian Caravan etc.
If you can help, please reply to vitruvianman @ outlook.es
Many thanks,

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