I've been writing quite a bit lately about people's bank accounts being wrongfully debited, either fraudulently or in error. And here's something else to look out for on your bank statement - the double or multiple debit.
I received two complaints about this from unrelated people involving separate companies, within a few days of each other. Pam Blake, a Nashua Mobile subscriber on the Cell C network, scrutinised her cellphone account last month because it was about R600 higher than usual.
Only the most delusional of women actually believe that any of the expensive jars of "age defying" creams they've bought over the years have actually lived up to their promise of making them look younger, or keeping wrinkles at bay.
But acknowledging, even to ourselves, that there is no effective wrinkle banisher to be bought at a cosmetic counter would kill the blind hope that slathering on those gorgeous smelling "moisture complexes" will spare us from looking old.
