Re: 22year old daughter scammed of £9,750

Sounds like a variant on a couple of scams. Scary stuff indeed. I would guess they had managed to convince your dad to download some probably fairly standard software which allowed them to take control of his PC, "remote desktop" is the broad term. And yes, they'd be basically using his c...

Re: 22year old daughter scammed of £9,750

It is incredibly easy to be conned. I've just (hopefully) saved my 87 year old dad from one of these clever tricksters in the nick of time. He was told his computer had been hacked and that he was due some compensation from Microsoft as he had been hacked whilst under their warranty. The fraudster c...

Re: Utterly shocked

My children are very matter of fact about the cycle of life. Squashed phezzys are nicknamed Harry Flatters. Lambs they feed whilst they're tiny are named Mint Sauce, Chop and Roastie. They don't get squeamish about death, birth and the like.

Re: Scattering Ashes - Public Place

I'd like my ashes to be used as a bit of fertiliser under a pretty rose bush. Preferably deep red, nearly black roses. Or maybe a peony bush. Then the bees would come and take some pollen and fly off into the wind with some of the essence of my soul. Never to die but to be spread forever (probably o...

Re: Boring Premium Bonds

My friend and I discussed that lottery tickets were a complete waste of money when you keep your stake with the PB's yet still have the thrill of chance. We decided to buy a single £25 tranche of PB's each to equate to approx a months worth in lottery tickets. We shall periodically do the same again...

Re: Probate - Sanity Check

It was my mother (in a more lucid moment) saying she wanted to make legacy gifts so she knew where her money was going. She's always saved all her change for the grandchildren. It was myself and my sister thinking sensibly that it ought to be more of a 'returnable' gift in case her care costs more t...

Re: Probate - Sanity Check

Small gifts up to £250: You can give as many gifts of up to £250 per person as you want during the tax year as long as you have not used another exemption on the same person. Just out of pedantic virgoan nitpicking curiosity. Does this mean £249.99 is the max? It doesn't say on the gov. website 'up...

Re: Probate - Sanity Check

- As of right now, should we be doing anything else finacially for the long term? (e.g. small annual gifts to limit future care liabilities, etc.) My brother in law is a tax accountant. He said (if I remember it correctly) that gifts can be £250 a year as personal gifts per person/child and a one o...
