people or groups falsely get money from people who's greed outweighs
any intelligence they may have.
But there is a more insidious form of scamming in the UK, that is
perpetrated by businesses of all sizes, I’m talking of the the “Error” in
all its guises,
The “Accidental” doubling billing
The “misreading” of utility Meters
The inaccuracy of timings in telecommunication Bill
The double charging for items on home grocery deliveries
The Cowboy builder
Oh there are many, many more, why not make you own list?
The reason for my rant is! These mistakes, 99.9% (not scientifically
proved) of the time leave the Consumer/User out of pocket, then you
end up paying for a call on a premium number to correct Their mistake,
via an 0845 number for example.
