Re: Borrowing 'Show' Money to Obtain Visa

I agree . At immigration they examined my bank statement closely. It’s not a hassle if that’s the rules fair enough. It’s only a matter of time before they require proof of medical insurance in my opinion. That will be problematic for those with a dodgy medical history, possibly in that scenario the...

The one time I forgot my licence I was stopped. Perhaps I will keep my licence in the glove box and a photocopy in my wallet.

They will discuss your ides then get back to you with an estimate. You can opt for design only or design and build. I found them very able. Unfortunately my pr...

Go back to the start of this thread and read on!
I am thinking that a lot has changed recently regarding fraud in its various forms. Is it safe to buy crypto currencies anywhere? Seems a bit of a minefield at the moment.
