Unauthorised charge creep from

A single mother friend of mine approached me with her horror ordeal of seeing an unauthorised transaction from of £69.99 macclesfield company of uk registration. The horror is that she has not even heard of this company. Digging up further research the company owner also owns Enhance Financial Services and Claims Angel.. the directors of all 3 companies a playboy millionaire fraudster who dailymail reports he is currently in court ordeal with Australia's judicial system for rape allegations Gregory Cox but names of other directors found on company database also a Michael Christian Ransom.

So back to my friend as she was looking for a loan she may have entered her details to one website a broker style and her details got passed around to third parties. But still she had not borrowed anything yet and why did this company take out 69.99 without her consent from her natwest account? She had only 1.50 left to feed her kids so furious she called the fraud helpline.. got transferred to visa and to no avail she's left in the dark about who she can trust to either get her money back or throw a brick at the company.

Being in debt is not a crime nor should you be taken advantage of being in that position or viewed as irresponsible for giving financial details to a broker who's job IS to help you locate to borrow funds and besides she didn't borrow in the end she got a family member so why should they have the liberty to pay themselves without a prenotification point of sale or agreement? visa and natwest won't help because you had negligently given details to a fraud in the first place!!!

With that attitude 'daylight robbery' is going to be a common thing then what are we going to do about this mess? This is against the law and soneone needs to close that business Down! Not a minute longer as reading the threads online ut looks lije so many others are being affected and shut out in the dark ocer this fraud and scam...Why should Visa.. the bank turns a blind eye?? indespicable!!!

Google to use more TV ads

Google+ is a social networking platform that is set to rival Facebook, aiming to make sharing more like sharing 'real life'.

Google's marketing budget remains small in comparison to most companies its size like Microsoft which unlike Google, Microsoft spends approx around $1bn a year on Media in the US alone!

But Google's leap in spending its adverstising budget which saw a spend of $137.5m in the first 9 months of 2011 in the US, on TV, Print, Outdoor, Radio and Online Display Advertising.

Promoting movie rentals on YouTube & Internet Safety via running poster ads on London buses and underground. 

Obi Felten, Google's director of consumer marketing for Europe, the Middle East & Africa is always looking for the best way to connect users with their tools, such as from a 'good to know poster ad' or a film ad during an xFactor break.

Google's having to work much harder to convince consumers to switch from Facebook or Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser, despite the strong network support from imaginative / creative agencies such as BBH, M&C Saatchi and its own in house creative lab.

Currently Facebook has 800m users which still shows it's foothold in Global markets today.

Marriage is for real...

Marriage is always the top 5 common topic to look into in a Tarot spread and the most sought after advice or opinion from a tarot reader,

so I thought to best shed a good light on this and share the reliable source, I took extract from the book that I read called 'This Momentary Marriage' A parable of permanence by John Piper. John Piper is NOT a tarot reader (he probably would detest this site/blogs because Tarot is a abomination and un-Godly) John is a pastor for preaching and vision at Bethlehem Baptish Church in Minneapolis USA, however I admire his written work, his views on marriage we must not overlook as it serves only a good life changing mindset that'll be good for us.

Staying Married is not mainly about staying in love...

"To forgive and to forbear - FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE"

"When you marry a person, you don't know what they are going to be like in thirty years. Our forefathers did not craft wedding vows with their heads in the sand. Their eyes were wide open to reality - 'to have and to hold from this day forward, for better or for wors, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love to honor, and cherish, 'till death do us part, and hereto I plight thee my troth [I pledge you my faithfulness]." You don't know what this person will be like in the future. It could be better than you ever dreamed, or worse. Our hope is based on this: We are chosen, holy, and loved. God is for uds, and all things will work for the good of those who love him (Rom. 8:28; Ps 23:6; 84:11)." By John Piper.

"As you gave the ring to one another and have now received it a second time from the hand of the pastor, so love comes from you, but marriage from above, from God. As high as God is above man, so high are the sanctity, the rights, and the promise of love. It is not your love that sustains the marriage, but from now on, the marriage that sustains your love." by Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Letters from prison 27-28.

Marriage is for God's glory...
"So in sum, the most foundational thing we can say about marriage is that it is God's doing. It's his doing:
a. because it was his design in creation:
b. because he personally gave away the first bride in marriage;
c. because he spoke the design of marriage into existence: leave parents, hold fast to your wife, become one flesh;
d. and because this one-flesh union is established by God himself in each marriage.
A glimpse into the magnificence of marriage comes from seeing in God's word that God himself is the great doer. Marriage is his doing. It is from him and through him. That is the most foundational thing we can say about marriage. Now we turn to the most ultimate thing we can syaay about marriage. It is not only from him and through him. It is also for him." By John Piper.
