    It's all on this thread here

    I think there was also a thread on Loquax about it too. It's a joke. The guy should be done as I'm sure he must be breaking some kind of rules.
  • Just been reading the thread - thats awful behaviour of him! Someone should tell period living that they are helping him con people!!

    Hi,

    I just emailed period living stating my concerns - what can I say I'm obviously addicted to getting stroppy emails.

    Text reproduced below.

    Hello,



    I am writing to you to express my concern at one of the competitions being run on your site ;



    http://www.periodliving.co.uk/Competitions.aspx?Action=844869760&ID=1124127e-8245-41e5-b4a0-1f2a509cb289





    The reason for my concern is the behaviour exhibited by the creator of the prize in several previous competitions he has run.

    These range from his deceptive (and possibly illegal under the latest government computer usage legislation) use of the harvested emails from the competition not to mention the small matter of his prices apparently jumping by a factor of ten between the competitions (£250 in one yet £2500 in an other using the same portraits and sizes).



    Details of this can be found in the following forum thread;



    http://forums.moneysavingexpert.com/showthread.html?t=271540





    In the above thread I have posted under the username “dr del”. While I personally feel any association with this individual could reflect badly upon your publication I realise this is, of course, only one person’s opinion and would be grateful if you choose to share your thoughts upon this matter with me.





    Yours sincerely,



    Wonder if they will even bother to reply.:o

    Unbelievable. This company is so unprofessional.

    I wonder what the paintings are like and whether they are just produced from a computer. Their attitude would certainly lead me to believe this!!

    Thanks for the warning.
