    Just to get free delivery? It says something like 50 posts or 20 posts in the last week or something like that. Something any TPU'er can do in a day or less.

    I'll sign up anyway and do the whole helping thang. I used to be active on the Novatech forums but I lost interest. However, I did win a i7 870 in a Intel compo they held. However I sold it as I needed the money to go on a flat. Kinda wish I kept it.

    :(

    That's quite definitely your own fault for thinking beats are good earphones :p They are absolute sh*t and not worth a w*nk. I don't understand why anybody is even bothering to buy them.
    Oh yea, cuz they've got dre's name on :banghead:

    C'est terible


    Afternoon everyone :pimp:

    Complain to ebuyer - that is who you paid and who you have a 'contract' with. I've had a similar thing happen and they refunded the whole delivery. I think I opened an 'e-ticket' or something like that.

    yeah, why would anyone discriminate against someone just because they listen to one of the best types of music?

    The Aria free delivery is 50 posts every month. I dont think its unachievable infact its probably easy but i dont know if there is a lot of activity in their forums. Ebuyer is supersaver right? I think its over £50 or something. Scan.co.uk do free delivery with hexus or av forums members, i think its orders over £50.

    Where did i say i did? Because i dont and dont want people thinking i do.
    Sycophants who only enjoy the popular music of the moment annoy me, the people who change music types because of popularity are stupid, people who swing with todays fads ect. I dont hate anyone because they listen to a certain genre.

    Ebuyer is £50

    Scan is orders over £20 with AV forum



    I was implying you didn't, worst people in my view are people who say 'that's old' about music, good music doesn't age, it stays as good as it was 30-40 years ago, it's only crap music thats get old and boring

    I've just been rung on my house phone by a blatant scammer.
    I answered the phone and an american woman's voice said "You have won an all-expenses paid holiday to the Caribbean. Press 1 to claim your prize!"

    I knew it was a scam so I pressed 1. Obviously!
    A foreign guy answers and the conversation goes like this:

    "Hi, claims center; can I have your name please?"
    "So who's this?"
    "I'm calling on behalf of Visa Mastercard, I just need your name sir so I can pull up the details of your winnings"
    "Apparently I've won a holiday."
    "Okay sir, I just need to pull up your details so I can check what you've won."
    "Sam Curtis" <- Fake name. Obviously!
    "Oh yes, I have your details here. Now, to confirm the Visa or Mastercard account that is associated with the prize, I just need you to make sure the beginning of the 16 digit card number on the front of your card begins with a 4." <- They all do don't they? btw, I don't have a Mastercard or a Visa!!
    "Yes it does."
    "Okay sir, can you go ahead and read off the 16 digit number off the card?"
    "No, if you've got in front of you, you can read it back to me."
    "Sorry sir I can't do that."
    "What's your name?"
    "My name is Bill Welch."
    "And what company do you work for?"
    "I'm sorry?"
    "You obviously work for a company. What company do you work for?"
    Goes quiet... "Mr Welch, I can't hear you, you're breaking up."
    "What are you on about? I'm not Mr. Welch, apparently you're Mr. Welch."

    Hangs up.

    Some scammers are just laughable!! Didn't even prepare with a fake company name! Was I the first one he done or summat?

    My GF & I don't answer the phone any more as we constantly get cold-callers and these 'competition wins'. Have you had the "Your computer is infected with viruses..." call yet?

    That one is fucking great. Being an enthusiast first & a technician second, the phone-call didn't last long when I started firing off the questions. Bloody bum'oles! Still, some ignorant sods get caught out.

    but that sounds fun, the idea is to try to have fun with the scammer, and waste as much of his time as possible, the trick with the Computer virus one is to pretend your using windows 95 and dial-up, you can waste about 4-5 minutes of his time just by telling him your waiting and playing dial-up noises loudly into the phone
