No Direction

No Direction is our 70ft Narrowboat which is now home to my wife Jayne and myself, it was launched on 4th February 2008.

We spend the Winters in a Marina and cruise in the warmer weather.

Can We Have Your Bank Details Please?.

Tuesday, 19th June 2012
Kings Bromley Marina.

We had an Email from H.M. Revenue and Customs,  or so the sender would like us to think, very official looking with all the right logo's.  It contained good news, a tax refund of  296.50 GBP ( strange way of putting it ) was still pending due to invalid account records, it even gave us a Case ID number : HM-503-472-569, attached to the Email were ten pages of waffle, one page was to fill in with our bank and credit card details, however a call to the real tax man revealed it was, as suspected, bogus.

In yesterdays blog I posted a picture of a fallen tree on the Coventry Canal and said that I'd contacted British Waterways about it, well today I had a reply saying that they had known about the tree for five weeks but it had wildfowl nesting in it, however the birds had now left the nest and the tree would be removed.  This is not the first time I've contacted British Waterway about a problem and have always had a positive reply. So if you see a problem while boating let them know ( politely ) , if they don't know then nothing happens.
