Believe that and I have a bridge you might want to buy.
"A spokesman for the Financial Ombudsman Service said: 'It's possible that your insurance cover could be affected if you explicitly announce your plans on social media.
'You wouldn't put a poster up on your front lawn saying you're going on holiday.'
The Association of British Insurers also warned home owners to 'think carefully about what you put on social media'."
"Police forces have repeatedly warned that would-be thieves will check social media to see whether property owners have said they will be away, before striking while nobody is home."
A quick trip around Google and you will find plenty of quotes like these.
Even without searching I remember a case not so long back where a couple from Lancashire
kept claiming for illness (Noro etc ) whilst on holiday .
The main evidence put to the crown court was facts pulled from social media sites the couple had posted, resulting in a long prison sentence for the pair.
I am not saying they will trawl everyone's media site but they can and do so at times .
Right ,how much do you want for this bridge ?
Glad to hear your sorted now.
When away we carry money top up cards which are nothing to do with our bank or credit cards which we avoid using and stick to using the top up cards.
Not the cheapest option as some will tell you but we feel safer and should we ever get the bad news you got whilst on holiday ,we still have money via these cards to fall back on .
Always remember you're unique, just like everyone else
