    what happened? you yourself had to send them a paper letter physically? thats strange i not heard of that before, its usually quite quick, 1 week 2 weeks the most to confirm your details.was there no option by telephone because that would have been the quickest option. Your spending limit is usually given the clear when you confirmed either your bank account or credit card by going through the enrolment process

    You can upgrade to a premier account with no spending limts
    paypal.com/uk/…0.4

    Dont use Ebay or Paypal?

    If you do still use ebay - buy from a real shop who you can phone up with a credit card number.

    Better still - deal with someone close to you who you can visit to pick the good s up and pay cash.

    Can you transfer the money to your bank account that you still have in there?
    If so do that, then open a new account, lol.

    the letter should have the pin to enter online to confirm your account, so not sure what your problems are

    the postman would 100% lose his job over this if anyone found out because he can only deliver the post to the correct address even if he knows its suppose to go to another place

    The idea is you dont use it so money doesn't go into it.

    They froze almost 200 quid from Quidco in mine - i chased it for about 5 months and got nowhere - so about a year ago I gave up.

    I will get it back from them - but will do it using my own means - rather than wasting more time through their procedures.

    If you have a nice postman and have delt with them personally in the past at the other address then they would probably pass it on. They have done for me before

    The letter is coming to you from Jamaica if my memory serves me! We couldn't wait that long either, so I rang them and after a lot of arguing, they agreed to accept a photo of a credit card statement, that had my address on! Dont get me wrong, this wasn't an easy option either, but eventually it worked.
    Oh yeh, and the letter took over a month to show up!!!!:w00t:
