Another story where Farepak has been used as a comparison, think we are going to end up with Farepak in the dictionary, the definition could read: ar*seholes /rip off merchants or ? :lol: :lol: :lol:

the one thing i have been constangly aware of over the past few months whilst not on the forum is the amount of people who know about farepak and are appalled by what happened. Even if this means that the name will be used in a degrogatory way in my mind it's a good thing as it means people wont forget and hopefully the govt will move quicker to protect innocent people losing out again ..... i cant and wont allow myself to go back to the state i was in just over a year ago and seeing as so much good has come out of it all i cant help feeling that i'm finally winning again ... if that makes sense???
