Re: SCAMS

My point being that it's important to report the facts and not scaremongering myths. Many of my friends on social media forward on inaccurate scam myths without fact checking that it's actually a genuine scam. This causes more fear and doesn't help anyone. If people read something take a few minutes...

No, this is not legit, It's a scam. That's why I posted this, to warn people about it. I'm sorry, but I can't see the point of your post. Was it meant to be funny? It didn't work for me. Some people are getting ripped off with these sort of emails.
Dur it's called sarcasm.

Re: SCAMS

Clicking on a link in a text is one thing. A hijacked phone is another. However while in a call you will only ever be charged for the code you originally dialled. Pressing buttons will NOT redirect your call or charge you differently. You can't start out in a low cost call and midway jump to a premi...

Re: SCAMS

Pressing buttons on a phone will not compromise you or charge you in anyway. Unless you key in your credit card or bank details. Pressing keys will never compromise you or bill you. This is misinformation and not useful. Obviously if you then give our personal information or bank details you're at r...

Re: PFC Penge Food Centre Sydenham Road

Don't buy any fruit or vegetables from here, just walked past and the guy is putting out sliced watermelon and literally coughed all over them without any attempt to shield his cough or the fruit.

Buy and use at your peril

Re: PFC Penge Food Centre Sydenham Road

It's over two years since mistakes were reported in this thread. I suggest that people ask for their change to be put on the counter then always say "Is that right?". (Busy yourself with purse/wallet or ingredient label so no hands.) Also ask for a till receipt if one is not offered, which it very ...

Today I noticed that the former Calabash of Culture has had the old shopfront knocked out and modern glass windows put in. Is this not part of the conservation area? It was a nice old shop front and now gone. Anyone know what's going in there?
