    Hi havent been on for a while quite busy on windows abd other **** in my life but I just had to share that one witu you lads. So a few days ago we received a leaflet thru the door offering a free first clean from a fairly well known big windows company in my area (big vans circling around all the time) but I know they do a **** job as has had a few of their ex customers asking me to clean theirs as the big company is **** apparently. So anyway didnt think much of the leaflet and yesterday afternoon when I was at home they turned up on my street and knocked my door. As I didnt fancy chatting to anybody just ignored it. Lad knocked for a couple of minutes and left. How ******* surprised was I later on when I went downstairs and there was a note in the porch saying that my property has recieved a free clean (which it certainly hasnt) and ... wait for this... I am now a customer number xxxx and they will do me a favour of coming every four weeks and doing me windows for me for 15 pounds a pop (3 bed semi). The ******* cheek eh? Needless to say they received a very saucy email the same evening telling them to **** off..

    Chuff me! The reason he was knocking on for a few minutes was to make sure no one was home, but how wrong was he! Name and shame Rafa.

    Name & shame & report to the police - if they were on your property without permission & signing you up without talking to you, its criminal action!

    I spoke to one if there lads
    Nice kid
    He couldn't believe what they were charging on residential
    They nipped in and got a big commercial job before me which I really thought I'd got . But the customers are not happy - the price was lower than mine so will see how long it lasts
