“Great Advice Centre”

Written on: 07/12/2012 by Wendymagic (6 reviews written)

The Citizens Advice Bureau in Birmingham is quite simple outstanding. I had a recent issue with my neighbour over noise disturbance and was not able to resolve the problem. I also did not want to pay a huge amount of money to a solicitor so thought I would go the the local CAB office for some free advice. Firstly the building was immaculate and very well maintained, this surprised me as I was expecting a packed and dirty office. The staff were literally falling over themselves to help me from… Read Full Review

“Other alternatives out there”

Written on: 23/10/2012 by themoneycop (2 reviews written)

I still cannot believe people falling for debt management companies still. I went with several debt management companies in 2010 & 2011 and nearly over £800 were fees until I booked an appointment with my local CAB firstly to set up a FREE debt management plan (no fee's charged) and I could start paying back money without worrying that the first 2 payments would be kept back like most debt management companies do. Always check how much companies charge you, as I have said already the Citizens… Read Full Review

Kirstee's Response to themoneycop's Review

Written on: 02/12/2012

Why have you only given one star for value for money? The service you received from them was free! Surely that's five stars.

The people you see at the CAB are mostly volunteers, someone has given up their time to help you solve your problems for free. Unlike Debt Management Companies, the CAB would also advise you of your full options regarding debts - options such as bankruptcy or debt relief orders. There is no way of making money for Debt management companies in doing that so they are unlikely to suggest it. You get impartial advice at the CAB. I know, I've been through it all.

Surely it's fair to award more stars?

Nothappyyyy's Response to themoneycop's Review

how ridiculous is not protected in any way. It seems that this is a robbery!
Here is the place to share:
-this is a dating site that is served by the fictitious profiles that you offer webcam striptease.
-trying to erase the profile is impossible before obadizh a paid line.
-After three days, if not erase the profile taken from your account 40
without notice.
Beware people!
I hope someone reads this and take action!I hope someone reads this and take action!
This is not fair and in combing the internet marketing making money from the account without consent, lack of written confirmation of the deletion of data from the site, no invoice plus workaround excuse rights and obligations as intended without notice robbing.

Themoneycop's Response to themoneycop's Review

Written on: 03/12/2012

I actually gave it 5 stars for citizens advice, but 1 star for a debt management company - seems as if there has been a blunder on the website!! This review and comment was written for a debt management company on here!! I would give 5 stars to the CAB! xx

useless website, when you try to find out how to get advice by email, in the end it redirects to www.adviceguide.org.uk, so it's really a silly game that makes you go back and forth and is worth no one's time ! they are impossible to contact and the poor information they have on their silly website can be found on better websites… Read Full Review
