Thanks Steve

I feel that is going to be useful as I cannot see them sorting this out  censored:
I reckon more than a slight chance one of their staff is using it

Bitcoin mining?  rubschin:
I was thinking worse

Perhaps that is what happened to Gary Glitter...?  rubschin:

Remember this  sad32:

I have a message today confirming my case has been sent to the 'write off team'.

This should get interesting.

So they took my laptop for a repair . Replaced keyboard and stole battery . Sorry lost original battery. State now they cannot source replacement battery . I have said they need to supply a replacement laptop to the same spec  as they  have effectively removed any functionality of this being a portable device .

Beyond pissed off

Beat them up til they plead for death as a blessed relief.  What utter bastards the world does not need using our oxygen. 

You can still buy those laptops (linky) but are they going to compensate you for renting a PC in the meantime, any data lost etc?



Well, whatever nevermind

The Boy has broken both his laptop and his phone AGAIN. He has gone through so many phones that he can no longer get insurance  Banghead Banghead Banghead 

Bank of Dad says NO! I have advised him to go to Tesco, buy a cheapo brick phone and transfer his SIM card.  eveilgrin:

I am being mean, apparently  eveilgrin:

Sounds painfully familiar  noooo:

I still don't have the laptop back and they have now sent me a link to something I can buy and then they will reimburse me .

As if I am gonna be confident they will do that !!!

Oh and they absolutely refute stealing my original battery but cannot provide an explanation of where it might be.

I hate them with a passion. I am currently undertaken a war of attrition with them and writing scathing reviews on the t'internet. I have received a message saying I am being vexatious from their social media representative. I have asked them to identify anything in my reviews that are inaccurate or not reflective of my experience.

I have heard nothing since !!!

Although if they get nasty that'll be quite a long way behind you hiding round a corner
