It'ssss (nearly) Chriiiiiiistmaaaaaas!!

Well, wow… it’s that time of year again already!
What happened to 2009?

Anyhoo, it’s mid december which means it’s mid-silly season – too much merriment ahoy!!

It’s also been snowing, which is nice!

Unfortunately Hornchurch has become one big frozen death trap of ice… which isn’t so nice!

Still, it’s only a couple of days of work left and then it’s feet up time for a few weeks – gonna be bliss!

Best (ie Worst) email ever!

Today I recieved an email with the subject line : “Mr Barrows, you could have between £50-£500 with Provident Personal Credit”. How this escaped my spam filter in the first place, i’m not sure, but i decided to hear them out (always game for a laugh me!)…

Here it is, in all it’s glory:

Now, how many wrong things are there in that email?
Firstly, apparently my name is now ‘@firstname@’ – charming!
Secondly, they just can’t properly build HTML emails – look at the alignment on those images! RUBBISH!
Thirdly, “Typical 189.2% APR”! 189.2% APR!!!! WTF!?!

I’m almost tempted to take up their offer of comparing their loans to other locally available to me, but i have no desire to send traffic to their site!

This just seems to be one of those attempts to try and get people who are already in debt (ie. “even if you’ve been turned down before”) further in debt!

Bastards!
