    Hi there. Yes to both. I will be doing another one (probably in January) but I’ll put one up on the website that you can download. It’s not as good because you can’t ask questions but at least you will be able to hear the information.

    I’ll put something here to let you know when something is uploaded 🙂

    thank you for letting us know about this. We will speak to Coinbase about it and see what they have to say.

    I have been using Coinbase for a few years and haven’t had a problem but I will certainly see if i can get a response about this.

    Well done for doing something about this. I know what you mean about those social media ads – they look so good but regularly aren’t!

    In this case, as you have documented evidence of how bad the product is, together with the company’s refusal to refund you, I think it would be fine not to send them back.

    It’s certainly a good idea to pursue them through your credit card company. Actually, you can also do Chargeback through the card-issuer, even if the item is worth less than £100. If you send them all the details and the proof of your contact with the company – particularly their refusal to accept blame – then I’m sure they will be able to get the money back.

    If you have time, I would also complain to the social media company that they advertised on. They should know about it and if a lot of people complain then they will probably block the ads.

    Gosh yes, Andre, I can see your problem there. It could go either way.

    However you’ve asked me what would do and my immediate answer is that I would keep it going, rebuild it this year and possibly next year (or part of it) and then sell. That’s what would do, but I can’t say 100% if it would be the right thing. There are too many variables.

    My thinking is:

    – given that your pension has taken a hit, it’s best to put off taking any of that anyway, so ideally you will need to keep going with a different income for a bit anyway

    – you say that the cafe is a kind of community hub so I think it would be really good for those who live in your area to be able to come back to the cafe once they are allowed to and get some normality back into their lives. Whoever you sell it to might not keep it going in such a caring way.

    – I do think that once we are let out of lockdown we will be rushing to our cafes, restaurants and other places we love to go so I think that your business will build up pretty steadily, even though there will still be many people who will be afraid to go out for some time.

    – post COVD-19 we will probably run businesses a bit differently so this will give you the chance to change a few aspects of the cafe in order to sell it well. You might change the way the seating is arranged, for example, or put in some very obvious hygiene measures that will reassure people.

    I’m a BIG fan of cafes generally – I really miss the ones I go to regularly – so I do hope you continue to provide this service to the community, and employ good people, for a while before moving on to something new 🙂
