Fraudsters 

SKY thievery. Beware of direct debits with any company. We changed supplier and for six months, SKY still kept taking direct debits from our bank amassing to over £400 and they refuse to re-pay the sum back, saying it isn't in their policy.

Scottish gas did the same. So, direct debits do not save you money. They cost you more and line the big companies pockets.  

 Sounds like a nice idea to buy some Backing Tracks - part with your money and everything is ok to start singing. Not with this company. The phone number they supply is going nowhere and they don't reply to emails. They take your money and run.  so Please Avoid This company. 

However, I did buy from this company http://www.karaoke-version.com and they delivered a very good backing track with no problem. I hope this saves you some trouble.

 In this day and age none of us can be too careful. Fraudsters are very clever at catching you out, so take a look at the following and try to make sure that you never fall victim. This person or persons, are at this every day. They look for items of sale at high value and then pretend to buy. Paypal tell you you have a payment pending, so you think everything is ok. Problem is, you can't get the payment until you ship the goods and show photographic proof that you have sent the goods. This all has to be done in 24 hours or else. If you look at the following email, you will see that all the official logos are in place. 

Please don't get caught out!

 How was this scam done? First of all, they respond to my advert for a guitar. Their message to me was "Hi there Steve, you have received a reply to your Gumtree posting "*************" (ad# 699****4) from <kellymadisha23@yahoo.com>:

hello seller, i will like to know if this add is still up for sale.."  Sounds exciting.

Their next email is : 
Hello seller.  Thanks for the urgent response,i will like you to know that i am interested in the item, i have gone though the pictures on Google and i can see that its exactly what i am looking for. I will like to purchase it and get it for my church as a donation, i will also be arranging for the pick up cus i have a pick up agent that can come for the pick up, i will be making payment through paypal because of the nature of my job and i have attached my bank account to it, i am a marine engineer, and i am currently working on sea, i only have access to the internet and no phone calls.kindly get back to me with your full address and your paypal id so i can make the payment as soon as possible and the pick up can be made..Hope to read from you real soon."
                                      Sounds Nice.
Their next email is: "kindly send me invoice via paypal so i can make the peyment into your paypal account.."

They have not used their names at all even though I give them mine. I thought this odd and PayPal confirmed it. In fact, these fraudsters have been at it a while and they are still trying to make people lives miserable.

Think about this and protect yourself and your friends.
