Those types of stonking return are practically impossible in normal stock market investing. Lilia Severina, pictured, praises the benefits of Bitcoin in a posh conference room in a Central London hotel. Yet the advert claimed they were easily available to all or any – except those who ‘can’t make a decision’, are ‘totally risk averse’ and would need to spend cash they ‘can’t possibly loose (sic) under any circumstances’. Normally, an investment company would be shot down for posting this kind of sales gunk. Share Under Financial Conduct Authority rules, investing adverts must not ‘cherry pick data’ or ‘create unrealistic expectations’ – let alone hide the real threat of losing your daily life savings.
But Bitcoin companies get away with it, as so-called cryptocurrencies aren’t controlled by the FCA therefore normal guidelines don’t apply. When an undercover reporter attended the seminar, it became clear in the advertisement was the end of the iceberg just. Here we reveal a regulatory Wild West where Bitcoin promoters are absolving to woo inexperienced savers with talk of fast cars, super-yachts, and superstar conferences – and mention the huge risks involved barely. Read it and judge for yourself. Ultimately, it’s all perfectly saying Bitcoin could make you a million; it has made many people stinking rich. But the proven fact that anybody fully understands how cryptocurrencies work or when and exactly how prices shall move is bunkum.
Even top bankers confess the whole lot is one huge gamble. When Money Mail contacted the company behind the seminar, it promised to add warnings to its literature initially. But it now seems to have changed its mind. So, until Bitcoin is properly regulated, there is certainly nothing to stop savers being talked into wild punts they could live to regret. Please, may I encourage anyone shopping on Amazon to be cautious about the containers they tick. Numerous Money Mail readers have accidentally signed up to Amazon’s costly Prime service, a of which is £79. Some claim this happened without them asking.
Often, Amazon issues a refund if you haven’t actually used the service, but it’s a pain in the neck of the guitar. On an identical topic, beware retailers offering credit notes or exchanges when a refund would appear fairer. I was refused my money back when returning a sealed packet of football socks to Sports Direct one day after purchase. Regulations allows suppliers to drop refunds if customers ‘change their mind’ plus some greedy shops such as Sports Direct take full benefit. A ‘BROKEN’ market where ‘a huge number of customers are ripped off for staying loyal’ and households must ‘constantly defend themselves’ from extreme bills.
Those were the scathing words MPs on the business enterprise committee used to claim for an energy price cap this week. They could in the same way easily have been describing the insurance market. Most companies offer rock-bottom prices to attract customers – hike premiums afterwards then. Some grouped families pay thousands over the odds on car and home policies, making the £300-a-year energy rip-off appear like small beer. Given that even insurance chief executives admit the marketplace is broken almost beyond repair, surely it’s time that MPs switched their attention?
Today, this column launches a fresh feature naming and shaming companies that imposing extortionate reservation fees. There’s analysis on charging extra if you pay by cards. Nonetheless it doesn’t tackle other add-on charges. Send me your examples of the ridiculous fee names, costs, and the offending company. I’ll start with the Royal Albert Hall. It charges a standard 2 £2 and pc.50 ‘handling’ fees. For four tickets to see Star Wars: A New Hope In Concert, the fees add £14.92. Have you spotted similar?

Nothing happens until someone takes action. Pick up the telephone! Call your owners and have if they might like their statements emailed or let them know you have an online portal available to them now. Take photos at another inspection and suggest some improvements. Check their insurance details and the time of their last lease review.
Let them know you are seriously interested in proactively managing their asset. Earlier, I recounted one of my own happy experiences with a telco supplier who appeared to provide extremely proactive service. The happiness I experienced though, was very short lived. Anything that dreadful occurred after that was! They got the billing wrong, taken care of immediately my queries when they felt like it, and I received one particular happy proactive phone calls never.
