Simple Care. Question asked. Response

To the person asking on Friday about Simple Care Health experiences......
Since becoming members of the Simple Care health scheme based in Torrox, we have experienced excellent service from clinics as well as dentists, who accept the Simple Care card, from Nerja to Torre del Mar.
The card also covers clinics in a wider area than this.
The discounts vary and are most certainly worth having.
We found the Simple Care team very efficient and helpful.
We would certainly recommend becoming members.
It is worth every single cent and the outlay of 99 €uros for a couple, for a year, is recouped very quickly.
In our case, after just 2 visits to a specialist at Clinica Rincon, and one regular visit to the dentist!
Please note.......we are referring to the Simple Care at Torrox (www.getsimplecare.es) and not
Simple Care.com, which is another company based near Malaga we believe.
They are 2 completely different companies.
Incidentally, we are in no way connected to Simple Care (Torrox).
We are just 2 very satisfied members.

Police Site in English

The Olive Press has recently given out this website regarding driving in Spain, what is required and explains rules and regulations on the Spanish Roads.
This is updated regularly and may be of interest to all us expats out there.
 It explains about roundabouts and the lack of use of indicators, speed limits on certain roads and where speed cameras are placed along with every question often asked here on Digame.
Well worth a read, and will be keeping us updated on forthcoming changes.
The police will no longer accept that we don't understand the rules of the road. 
Happy reading.
Sue.

Excellent Spanish Carpenter.

We have just had a 25 sq mtre tile effect laminate floor laid by Agustin.
He made an excellent job of the floor, cleared up and was very reasonable.
His tel. Number is 649877353.

Sunshadespain alive and well.....

Just a very brief note to let all Digamites know that Craig & Carol of Sunshadespain.com,
the awning, persianas and mosquito screen website, has not and will not be going anywhere.
We had a chap by the name of "Andy" e-mail one of our clients telling them he had taken over from us!
I can only assume this "Andy" chap has just arrived, as this dirty trick will not go down well with the locals. 
Compete by all means, as long as your legal, but don´t try telling people were not here any more.
Thanks.
The fit and healthy, so far, Craig.

Re: Endesa Scam - Warning

(1)
Anyone that has given all that info had better visit their bank very, very, soon!
Cheers, Keith, Vinuela, wotsapnin@gmail.com
(2)
Further to the previous days warning can I please add another. We sold a property 6 years ago
and with the agent did everything correctly, all bills were paid i.e. IBI, community fees, water and
electric etc. Last Friday I received a phone call asking for me by name with my NIE number by
someone purporting to be from Endesa. They told me the contract had not been cancelled on
the house we sold and that there was an outstanding amount that required immediate payment.
I obviously disputed this and he actually told me go into the office in Nerja and check but this bill
must be paid immediately or further costs will mount up. I then almost immediately received a
SMS (TXT) message again looking like it was from Endesa with my details including the
correct contract details for the house we had sold (I checked when I got home). There was a
bank account number for me to use to pay this amount. I went into the office this week and
spent a couple of hours with a very nice young lady and her manager who at 1st glance of my
phone thought I should pay. It was only when I produced my 6 year old bills and the sale
documents that they realised this was indeed a scam. These are very sophisticated people
and where they get the details from I do not know but the lady in Endesa said NEVER pay
anything without checking either in the office or on the number on your Endesa bill. I think the
lesson is never throw away or shred paperwork or bills as they are the only proof you may have
to avoid being ripped off.

Insuring Spanish registered vehicle for Morocco

Has anybody ever insured their Spanish registered vehicle for a trip to Morocco?
Our current fully comprehensive insurance will not cover fire, theft or windscreen.
We do not want to rely on the insurance that can be bought upon arrival, but want fully comprehensive cover before we go
Ideally bought for a month rather than a whole year. badgerdot101atlivedotcom or digame.
Thanks

German Fish Shop ?

I have been told that there is a German fish shop in Torrox who smoke
their own fish and that is possible to buy all kinds of smoked fish.
I believe it is on the front somewhere.  Would someone be kind enough
to tell me where exactly it is, so that I can park as near as
possible.  Walking far is a problem.

Re.Competa Internet Services

It was good to see an advertisement for this as I shall probably be living in Cómpeta from next week. However, other than giving a location next to the Pilon restaurant, there were no contact details whatsoever.
I don't know Cómpeta, nor the Pilon restaurant, and can't contact these people.
When, oh when, will people remember that Digame is read by thousands of people who aren't intimate with each others backyards?
Please always give at least an email address and ideally a phone number too (and I for one certainly won't be calling non-Spanish numbers).
Yours in frustration

Endesa Scam - Warning

Has anyone heard of Endesa visiting customers and offering them a 10% discount on their bill,
and asking to see their passports, a previous Endesa bill, and NIE number, then taking photos
of the passports with a mobile phone.
They then ask to use your landline, on doing a redial of  the dialled number it connects to a golf club,
I doubt that this is a genuine Endesa venture,
These people have been spotted in Sedella.
Be warned!!

Re - Theft of Electricity Meter cover

Last year, after one particular windy night, six covers from different electricity meters along our track were blown off even though they all needed a key to enable removal.
Eventually all were found at various distances away so perhaps a search of the surrounding area may locate your lost cover.
I wouldn't have thought such an item the sort of thing that thieves would risk all to acquire.

Theft of Electricity Meter cover

 On returning home on Tuesday 24th evening we noticed that our electric meter cover had been removed.  The meter is on a pylon by our gate.  It could not have blown off as they had to undo 6 screws to remove it and with a special key - and there is no sign of it anywhere in the surrounding area. 
We live in the campo above Sayalonga, on the crossroads Matamoros/Rabita/Lagos and the name of our house is Casa Loma Sayavera.
Many people pass our house, did you see anyone tampering with the meter? 
We have contacted the police and Endesa.

Builder/Tradesman Recommended

I recently had some carpentry work carried out in my home based in Nerja.
I found a couple of builders but had to stop them as they obviously didn't´t know what they were doing and I am no expert myself.
I cam  across a traditional tradesman that took great pride in his work and didn't´t cut any corners
I'm now left with wonderful finishes and thought it would be great to give him some praise.
Call him on 678 030 677
