TrueShopping.co.uk Real Customer Experience Review - Online Shopping Lessons / ConsumerWatch / Shopping

By: Nadeem_Walayat

At the start of November with winter fast approaching and the temperature starting to drop, I decided it was time to get a decent set of ladders to enable me to complete a whole host of maintenance tasks before winter and after much searching settled on a large 12 rung Triple Extension Ladder supplied by the online retailer TrueShopping.co.uk, that could also be used as double extension step ladder though which lacked adequate online customer reviews though I did not think it would make much material difference to products such as ladders.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Holders of the Bitcoin fictional currency remain in a state of denial as MtGox, the worlds largest Bitcoin exchange has effectively gone bust after a fortnight of statements that they would soon resume allowing clients to transfer their funds and bitcoins out of 'Magic the Gathering', instead MTGox has disappeared in a puff of smoke with some estimated 750,000 of customer bitcoins that at the current average market price of $500 (illiquid price) would be worth $375 million.

The 10 Greatest Financial Scams in History / ConsumerWatch / Scams

By: Money_Morning

Over the past 40 years, only one new entry has been added to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) roster of "Top 10" investment scams - the very broad category of "Internet fraud."

The other financial rip-offs listed are merely new versions of tried and true swindles that have been around for decades or more - from Ponzi schemes and pyramid systems to phony stock offerings and commodity cons.

Sophisticated Smartphone Hacking: 36 Million Euros Banking Theft / ConsumerWatch / Scams

By: DK_Matai

A sophisticated digital attack involving smart mobile phones has been used to steal 36 million euros or 47 million dollars from corporate and private banking customers across Europe.  The attack appears to have emanated from cybercrime servers in the Ukraine.  Android and Blackberry mobile devices have been specifically targeted, showing that attacks against Android devices are now a growing trend.  A new customised version of the Trojan spyware application "Zeus" called "ZITMO" or "Zeus-In-The-MObile" has been deployed, which security companies have called Eurograbber.  This enables a two-stage Trojan virus attack to progress that spreads from a victim’s Personal Computer or PC to their mobile telephone.  Eurograbber marks the first such case of PC-to-mobile Trojan malware targeted specifically at online banking.  More than 30,000 online banking customers in Germany, Italy, Spain and the Netherlands have been affected by this attack.

Payday Loans the Next Ponzi Subprime Debt Bubble to Implode? / ConsumerWatch / Debt & Loans

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Office of Fair Trading some several years behind the curve has finally announced an investigation into the aggressive debt collection practices of the largely unregulated payday loans industry that has mushroomed over the past 4 years to stand at over 240 providers, all competing against one another to increasingly lend money to those that cannot afford to repay the loans in what appears to be a classic Ponzi scheme-esk structure where loans are usually given to individuals without any background checks that are increasingly for the purpose of repaying loans taken out from other payday lenders, and then again and again which means that payday lenders are effectively paying one another resulting in what is a growing Ponzi pyramid primed for collapse.

Lessons From the Full Tilt Ponzi / ConsumerWatch / Scams

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the midst of the Eurozone crisis and corporate bankruptcy scandals such as MF Global last year, a smaller-scale yet meaningful scandal went relatively unnoticed. This scandal erupted on what poker players now call "Black Friday" - April 15, 2011. That was the day when U.S. federal authorities unsealed indictments, seized the domains and assets of the three most popular online poker sites - Full Tilt Poker, PokerStars and the Cereus network (Absolute Poker) - and arrested the owners. Hundreds of thousands of U.S. poker players were locked out of their online accounts and separated from their funds.

Boots Opticians Having Problems Digesting D&A? Discount Voucher and Review / ConsumerWatch / Healthcare Sector

By: N_Walayat

Following my recent vision problem for some 15 minutes whilst at Manchester Airport, I had no choice but to bite the bullet and visit my local GP (ecclesall medical centre). Whilst my expectations were already low, they still managed to disappoint, seems like the reception staff are trained to so their best to obstruct patients, but that's for another article, the long and short of it was I had to go and see an optician (at my own expense) with a scrap of paper from the Doc to determine if there was a problem with my eyes or not.

By: N_Walayat

The UK based online furniture store, Furniture123.com / Furniture123.co.uk purports to "make our customer's lives easy (as easy as 123!)", however the sales pitch may not live up to real customer experience:

For example I ordered a Basel Oak Dining Table from Furniture123 on 8th of Feb 2012, the first warning bell rang when the company failed to send an email acknowledging the order and delivery.

Aussie Dollar and Euro Under Pressure / ConsumerWatch / Forex Trading

By: Bari_Baig

Rains might have only fallen in Australia but Aussie Dollar and Euro both are feeling the pressure: rains might have stopped but to put a finger on to the extent of damage these rains have done is far from within sight. Brisbane got few inches of rain even now and few areas were given evacuation warnings nevertheless, as a whole the worst seems to have past now. The Aussie Dollar which only on the last day of 2010 posted the highest high ever recorded has been hit as badly as the floods have hit Queensland. We wrote in our Jan 4th newsletter that
