Hi All. So busy right now so I’ll keep it short. Has anyone out there bought a one-off fee 0800 number from Global communications? Guess what? I did. it was supposed to be mine for life too. I must admit, I had my suspicions as to how this kind of business model was sustainable. Well today I got an email and a text saying they had gone into administration – Surprise surprise! They offered to optimize my website some time back and gave me a discount because I’d already done so much myself. luckily I managed to get my money back on that one. The number company they were using offered to continue my 0800 number for a one off fee of £25.00 but then I looked at their divert to mobile charges and decided reluctantly to let them disconnect it. So if you ring it, I’m not out of business, I’m just keeping costs real! I’m back to my local 01242 554 590 number and of course the mobile which I always have with me (07976 409 141) which the landline is diverted to anyway, so if you’re about to ring me you can save me some cash and just ring that.
The moral of the story is: If anyone offers you a deal which sounds too good to be true like the one above then, probably best to be skeptical and avoid re-painting all your vans and re-doing your stationary. That reminds me. I’ve got some work to do there. luckily most of us deejays aren’t daft enough to have sign written vans or to translate: Hello Mr. burglar, please find lots of goodies in here….
Ok time for a giggle with some classic Yes minister:
Have a great week!
