Great to see Holborn staff in here trying to paint over the damp.
Today I've had four missed calls from Holborns 'London' number. I had three unsolicited calls from them last week.
Each time I requested bluntly that they stop calling, but the calls don't stop. I was duped by this ilk when I first arrived in Dubai, and now have the pleasure of letting them lose me money for the next 18 years. Here's how they work. They look at your income and assess what the maximum monthly instalment is that you can sustain.
Then they lock you into 18-36 months of making that high payment. In return you get 'preferential benefits' like being able to take a month off when you're destitute. I've got a friend that works for one of these companies, and he assures me the first 18 months you're paying straight into the reps pocket as commission. If you're incredibly lucky, the funds they sell you will break even, and you'll just lose the exorbitant fees they charge.
Take the advice of someone that has lost over $15,000 with these jokers: you're better off investing in flea market pottery.
Reason of review: Cold calling.
