Shopping rip-off

Beware of seafront outlet 'TEAM'. They are very good salesmen who will sell you cameras for 4 x retail value. I was a mug who got caught, and will put it down to experience. Their ploy is to show you the ticketed price and then a comparison with Currys or Jessops at a much higher price. The comparison brochures are fake. STAY AWAY.

I'm always surprised that the Battle of Hastings wasn't actually fought at Hastings but a bit inland at a place called Battle. One heck of a co-incidence, isn't it - a battle being fought at Battle.

Ok so this just might be me but why would anyone buy these type of things whilst in another country, its not like you can just pop back to the shop if it goes wrong a couple of months later, and to put you mind as rest harters it was named Battle after the battle,Following the battle William the Conqueror built Battle Abbey – a penance ordered by the Pope for the loss of life incurred in the conflict. and the village grow up around it.

Do you actually know that the scams are made by ALL INDIANS? My SIN is Turkish, but he has been confused for Pakistani, Indian, Bangladeshi, Afghan, so many Middle Eastern people look similar but they are all different. It seems harsh to tar everyone the same, especially by someone who does not come across as very worldly-wise.

I got caught out in Tenerife this week, ending up with something I was talked into getting, not needing and getting ripped off at same time. No receipt or guarantee for Android tablets bought for kids Xmas presents. The shop is called Fashion Square in Adeje, Tenerife.

Sorry, but if you allow yourself to be talked into buying something you neither want nor need, there is only one person to blame. You look into a mirror to see them.

So what does Nosferatu do if he ends up with something he didn't want or need?
