Not any more, Rick. Was sold as part of the deal to Findel on 13th Oct.

Cheers

But being a sceptical sort of guy, I would like to know if anyone at Findel had any connections with Farepak & co ?

All that I've heard is that Findel had been after Kleeneze for about 18 months before the brown stuff hit the whirly thing. I don't think that they gave Farepak any thought at all, but when it started going pear-shaped they probably wanted to make the most of the situation, so put in a Fire Sale offer for the bits that they wanted.

Findel were quite closely connected to Kleeneze because a part of the group sourced products and sold them to Kleeneze.

At the beginning of 2006 EHR were in talks with Findel with a view to selling Kleeneze to them -the object being to plug the funding gap with Farepak which was obviously coming up at the end of the year.

Findel did what any astute organisation would do. Took advice, stayed in close contact, and waited for the time when they could pay the least possible price.

As I am sure will come out in the investigations.

Thanks for all the replies, folks.
The reason I asked the question is I'm interested in becoming an agent and having lost almost £1000 with Farepak, I don't want to get clobbered again. Any more info will be welcomed.
Cheers.
