    Suspect it is just skanky backline staff augmenting their wages.

    I reported an accident to the Police once using the mobile number I had uneventfully used for the past 15 years (at the time).
    Few weeks later I was pestered at least once a day by claims firms.

    I usually got through the robo-call section then when put through to the human agree to everything they say and explain all the injuries I've suffered and time taken off work to recover.

    Towards the end of the questioning I ask if it matters that I was over the legal drunk driving limit or that my car only had three wheels at the time.

    Contacts drop off dramatically after a few calls like that.

    Nobody is born a gammon and I believe you can actually pray it away.

    Hello. We wanted to let you know that from 13 November 2019, we'll be increasing the charge for some services that aren't included in your plan - for example the cost of calling some international destinations. Rest assured, there are no changes to the monthly cost of your plan or any extras you have with us. Head to http://www.vodafone.uk/Price-Change-N19c­ to see all the changes. As we're increasing the charge for these services, you can end your agreement without a penalty - we hope you'll choose to stay, but if you'd like to leave, or to discuss your options, please call us on 0808 005 7312 within 30 days of receiving this message.

    I responded to the above message from my provider (Vodafone) and the upshot of the conversation under the new 'right to cancel' scheme was (after they tried 4 or so times to offer me a new contract and the latest phone of my choosing , although I already have a S10+) that I could cancel and retain my number on PAYG or take the PAC code. I needed to keep the number as I am leaving country in a few months and still need a UK presence. Only been on that upgrade for a little while so I saved an absolute fortune on the handset cost and monthly fees.

    Might be worth checking out messages from your own providers.

    You have no idea.

    I used to work for a company that sent mechanics into these corporate citadels. The amount of amazing bikes, some not even locked that would sit on flat, cracked tires under a film of dust was staggering.

    We would also help with audit and removal of said bikes but believe me on collection day we were taking boardmans and Ridgeback step-through frames. That C'dale with full DA including wheelset? Nowhere to be found.
