Re: Frozen Pensions for UK Pensioners

https://www.udonmap.com/udonthaniforum/post524533.html#p524533 A discussion I wonder whether anyone else has noticed the following stated in the Labour Manifesto: "We will ensure that the pensions of UK citizens living overseas rise in line with pensions in Britain" Anyone any thoughts on this ?

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

It's not a real pushy sales pitch and there is an 'unsubscribe' link at the bottom. I am pissed that they were able to get (buy) some of my visa details. FWIW unless you know for sure that have subscribed never click on an unsubscribe link as it is just confirming that the email address is active a...

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

Surely once an email has been composed and sent the host, Gmail, Hotmail etc do what they like with the info contained within including passing your info onto third parties with a relevant interest on info contained within that email. For example: if I write a mail containing the word "insurance" a...

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

tamada you are spot on with those comments.

Everything will be OK with the agents and the clients, until it isn’t.

Then the agents will submit the correct envelopes while the dodgy extension holders are hung out to swing in the breeze.

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

It could also be that the Immigration server has been hacked, and they ( Immigration ) is unaware. Government servers are not known for their security or that a Rogue person is feeding intel to a third party for the statutory brown envelope . You could have got the exact situation and job of the th...

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

Had one of those! Calls herself Grace. The TV thread has no clue as to her source. Looking at the email she does not know the precise visa status of the recipient. PS. I don't think its libelist to name a party conducting an obviously illegal activity. TV posted a copy of the email and we all know ...

Re: Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

Why do you believe the data is "stolen"? I do not “believe” that the data was stolen. I know that it has been. There are only 2 places where that e-mail address exists, one is on my computer, the other is on the immigration database. There is enough other information that proves to me that the thef...

Warning, visa agency accessing immigration database

There is a visa agency with a 02 phone number (I will not give the name or any other details due to the Thai Libel law) they have accessed the immigration email address list that includes nationality and extension information. The stolen information probably also includes age as well I am certain of...

The inside of Central Plaza is as nicely decorated for Christmas as I've ever seen it. Nothing chintzy....lots of photo ops for all the people who indulge in selfies. No signs of Santa, though.
At least they don’t have Christmas music, which you get for about 3 months in other countries.

Re: ipod classic fix

Just a FYI, Apple is slowly doing away with iTunes and replacing it with 3 different programs, that might be why no support available. You might look into the new programs to see if one works for what you need. Not so slowly, iTunes is gone from the current macOS Catalina, but the classic last iPod...

Re: Same, same at Udon immigration… well almost!

It must have been an O visa STWW as I was not married at the time (just living in sin) and was able to get in Vientiane after I showed the Consulate my Thai Bank Account. But that was a few years ago. It’s virtually certain (though checking for your own peace of mind is wise) to be a Non-O coming f...

"Enquired about changing from retired extension to married". Where did I mention OA or O visas. Extension of stays. Just money in the Bank to meet requirements. It seems that Retirement is the less work/easier option for them. You did not mention which was the original visa that you are extending f...
