    Anyone else receive what I would term a spam PM today from a user called “pure”? Offering mortgages. Or just me?! Mark?

    Yes, I fear that everyone was sent the same message, and it is a worrying development. I have now blocked the person who sent it, but I don’t think I can prevent it happening again unless I stop all PMs, or close the forum to new users. I’ll look into it.

    Spammers are such vermin, and the fight against them is a constant battle.

    If we dont respond to it. It will make it a fruitless exercise on his/her part. Besides we all know the Halifax Espana has a better product.

    All cost associated in transfering is paid by Halifax Espana not the 50%. Only condition is that you have stay to stay with Halifax Espana for five years

    Before you all jump on me, I do not work for Halifax in Spain or UK, nor am I an Agent/mortgage broker.

    On another forum that I use, they somehow prevent the use of the PM facility until the member has made a certain number of posts on the forum. Maybe you could do the same Mark? Not that it’s really a big problem on here.

    Just like the tele-marketing calls 😡 And they always seem to call when you’re in the middle of something very important or up a ladder! Happened to me twice yesterday.

    a “thank you and p**s off”
