Broadband Compensation Scam

I've just read this on the BBC Scotland site, no doubt coming to a phone near you!

Re: Broadband Compensation Scam

Sorry to hear the guy got conned, but maybe he was the author of his own misfortune after all, they do say you cannot cheat an honest man. Did this person think they were getting something for nothing?

There's just no helping some people.

All views expressed are my own but you can express them too if you want to be right about everything like I am.

Re: Broadband Compensation Scam

Well it's not the most descriptive article I have read on the BBC, and doesn't give much away, so it will be interesting to see if it's updated.

Re: Broadband Compensation Scam

That twist could turn out to be a good earner for scammers.

There must be thousands who rightly believe they deserve compensation for a sub standard service.
