Tax Rebate Email Warning

I received an email this morning purporting to be from HMRC saying I am due a “tax refund”. As this is highly unlikely I looked into it further.

The HMRC will never contact by email about refunds, or ask for personal or financial information this way.
The heading and site look very realistic!

Services Needed – Recovering / Relining of Lampshades:

A little test for fellow Digamites ! Does anyone know a company or person who can carry out the above to a high standard. I have a few that need to have this service, some complex shapes easy if you know how…..sadly I don’t.

Please contact Lynn at Darcymay1 @ icloud.com

hopefully I will be lucky!



Services – Online Banking with Sabadell – Update

After my gripe about the intervention of sms for verification with Sabadell ( no signal in the campo )

I have managed to get response from the bank customer services and wish to share this good news.

If you have a smart phone and down load their app and activate your account set up..but you do initially need to do this with a signal to receive  a code via sms.to also verify mobile phone user It’s all singing and dancing after that.

call into the branch and they will help you if you are in difficulty with it.

Happy days internet banking from your home.

Disappointingly, there are no VOSE daily screenings this week. In addition, the recent pattern of showing lots of films in English on Tuesdays has changed. It looks as if VOSE day will now be Thursdays. So next Thursday (3rd), the choice is:

Doctor Strange – Dir. Scott Derrickson. With Benedict Cumberbatch, Tilda Swinton. 22:15.

Trolls – Dir. Mike Mitchell, Walt Dohm. With Justin Timberlake, Anna Kendrick. 17:10, 19:10.

A Monster Calls – Dir. J A Bayona. With Liam Neeson, Felicity Jones. 19:40, 22:10.

In addition, for ballet fans, on Wednesday 2nd there is a live broadcast of The Royal Ballet’s production of Kenneth MacMillan’s Anastasia. This will start at 20:15.

tc-me-smallHow to place an article on DigameXtra!

Send an email to janekirkspain @ gmail.com

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

The text of the email should be what you’d like to see published – but note:

 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 4 weeks later.

Anyone selling anything must include the make and model number of the item.

Photos will only be published once.

Photos must be in  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 include the seller’s location.

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  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 format…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
