Virginmedia installation


[link to this post]
 
Odd thing happened, someone apparently applied for VM cable to be installed at my address.
I have lived here since the Falklands War with no lodger.
First thing I knew about it was VM engineer turning up to do the in house stuff.
He pointed out a cable had already been put in under my lawn and a box on the house, I had not noticed as its not a very much maintained front garden.
Now a week later a £120 cheque has arrived here for the mystery bloke, from VM Payments in Bradford.
So is this some kind of subtle scam?

No I can't bear that bearded bloke or his Pickle. it was wonderful when that hurricane trashed his private island.

I told the installer to sling his hook he seemed miffed that I didn't want VM and hadn;t asked for it

You realise VM has nothing to do with the beardy bloke anymore? It's owned by the Yanks.

Presumably a refund because they failed to install on the expected date?

Maybe you should have let them install it and he could have paid the monthly bills smile.
