Paypal Problems

Has anyone has unauthorised payments taken from their bank accounts by Pay Pal.

I have no accounts with Pay Pal so they very difficult to tak to as they

want a “User Name and Password”.

As the payments were on a Visa Debit Card the bank said it was unable to help.

The only way I stopped payment was by cancelling the card.

The amounts were not large 6.08 euro on two consecutive weeks,

Is this a common problem and does anyone have an email address for Pay Pal?

Recommendation – Cleaning Cars

Digamextra readers will be familiar with the regular recommendations for Warren.It gives me great pleasure in joining them.

to say Warren “cleans your car” is like saying Ronaldo “kicks a ball about”.

Over two days he returned my car to almost factory pristine.

All the additional processes he employs ( such as “Sureguard” ) and the specialised equipment he uses, make the price very reasonable.

Warren can be contacted on: 618 346 098.

If you want confirmation of my recommendation, call me on :

bell-ringer718How 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

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.

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 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
