TalkTalk changes

Amid continued struggles, TalkTalk have announced that they’ve captured their fourth chief financial offer in four years, poaching Kate Ferry from Dixons Carphone, who will take office in the autumn.

Ms Ferry comes to the company with a rich and storied history, with a career at Merrill Lynch as a specialist retail analyst behind her, as well as the top spot at Dixons Carphone. She’ll replace Iain Torrens in the latest move to revitalise TalkTalk, after Sir Charles Dunstone returned to the business he started within Carphone Warehouse.

what to avoid paypal scam

 

Where there’s money, there will be people looking to take advantage and steal it. It’s a sad fact, but it remains a fact nonetheless, and when it comes to online payments, there’s none bigger than PayPal.

Here in the UK there are millions of PayPal customers, each with bank accounts linked to their PayPal accounts and many with money sat in their account. Understandably, that can make them quite the target for scammers and hackers, who can use that information to buy goods online, send money or commit other types of financial fraud.

SUmmer holidays delay

Three months ago, we brought you news that British Airways cabin crew had voted in favour of strike action in their dispute over pay and benefits with the company. That strike was due to take place on the 16th of June, running through the 20th, and did indeed take place.

Those strikes were in relation to benefits not being reinstated for staff who took place in industrial action, and it not appears that British Airways staff are ready to strike once again.

Virgin Media deal

Sky and Virgin Media enjoy something of a tetchy relationship at present, and who could blame them? Together, they monopolise a huge portion of the pay-TV, broadband, mobile and home television markets.

True, whilst the two companies are fierce rivals on all fronts, they’ve found room for cooperation in the past, like in the appearance of Sky channels like Cinema and Sports on Virgin TV platforms. However, that was mandated by the media regulator Ofcom, who demanded that Sky’s services be available on all platforms.
