If you pay your debts, if you pay what you owe, you won’t be named and shamed. Simple. If I owed someone £436.45, I’d pay it, most people would. Taking advantage of someone’s good nature whether it be purchases made in good faith or in this case, rental of a property, is just not on. It will probably transpire that there was no written contract and that Mr & Ms Webb are seemingly avoiding their responsibilities as decent human beings by taking advantage of an elderly hard working businessman and his wife’s good nature. I have absolutely no sympathy whatsoever for criminals whether it is Rebekah Brooks, Bob Diamond or Mr & Ms Webb.
What goes around comes around. Believe me, Brooks and Diamond have abused their positions of power terribly and are now both in the process of using their powerful friends and influences to wriggle out of what should be long custodial sentences for abusing the trust of the British taxpayer, invester and voter. Fraud is fraud whether it involves hacking a murdered girl’s mobile phone for a very morally low newspaper scoop, pulling the wool over fellow banker’s eyes then stealing from them or simply refusing to pay money owed to someone who has trusted you.
When Brian Dimmock takes this sign down, I will remove this post.
