    Amazon Parcels

    https://conversation.which.co.uk/money/amazon-prime-brushing-scam-explained/#cpage-1 The 180+ comments were worth reading, and I got a fair understanding of this phenomenon.

    Built in single electric oven and electric hob

    That is a potential possibility. I received the install instructions from the technical helpline after getting through the online chatbot and duty droid. I think I am going to be OK on this as there is NO clear guidance on the clearance required. I figure so long as I increase the...

    Built in single electric oven and electric hob

    After 20 years in the apartment, the time has come to replace an oven and a hob. In spite of calls to the manufacturer's helpline, I am still wondering about the necessary clearance between a single built in electric oven and induction hob. A hob above a drawer with the dividing panel = 10mm per...

    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    About 2,000 miles and 36 hours per google maps! Now you know how my car had 254k miles on it!

    Anyone seen any good number plates on cars lately?

    Apologies if I have previously mentioned this. I did an internet search and a platemania.com user had snapped my car on holiday in Eastern Europe some years ago. They have considerately managed to preserve a certain amount of privacy as the right hand white blob is my head!

    Is servicing important to you?

    Those of us who buy higher mileage cars generally want to see a full service history and a clean MOT history with supporting invoices for any MOT failure repairs. My first MB was 16k miles 16m old. I still have it 225k miles now. My 2nd MB was 11y old and 170k miles. Kept to 254k miles. Sadly...

    Amazon Parcels

    Leaving a requiest not to leave parcels would be an invitation to remove any left in London! But I take your point. Amazon are generally useless at problem solving.

    Amazon Parcels

    After initiating an amazon online chat session I eventually got passed to a human with a brain. Each time I had to re-explain. Not having the order number or tracking ID resulted in me transcribing all the various shipping bar codes into the chat session. The upshot was that they were not...

    Amazon Parcels

    I went down to the concierge and met a woman who had got the concierge to call me. She showed me an original passport which had a different surname to the addressee of the parcel and tried to show me a tenancy agreement to prove where she was living (on our development). She said the goods had...

    Amazon Parcels

    Yesterday, someone rang the doorbell at an inconvenient time and wanting to collect an Amazon package! I asked them to come back at an agreed convenient time (without any admission), which is now but they have not arrived yet! My view, after some research is that this is likely to be an Amazon...

    Amazon Parcels

    There was a failed delivery today. Courier tells Amazon. Amazon should tell sender or wait for sender to notice. Sender notices and either tries to collect themselves by knocking on my door or Courier company calls and asks for their parcel back. I don't have to do anything. Solving other...

    Amazon Parcels

    In the last 3 days, I have started to receive Amazon parcels (including prime) to my address of 20 years, but they are addressed to someone else. I have checked amazon, paypal, bank credit cards and most of the bank debit cards and no-one has been taking funds from me to pay for this stuff. The...
