I was reading this piece in todays Irish Independent about the relaunched Financial Regulator website for consumers.
I haven’t had a look through it yet, but I was drawn to the mention in the article of being able to subscribe to an e-mail newsletter. I have now subscribed using my valueireland.com e-mail address.
Lets hope this subscription is better than 3 others I’ve subscribed to in the past, but haven’t ever received any communications whatsoever. Does anyone else subscribe to any of the following? Have you ever received any communications?
- Eddies Rocket – Eddie Hobbs’ e-mail newsletter on his website – subscribe here.
- Brendan Investments newsletter – you can subscribe to this one here.
- National Consumer Agency consumer alerts – subscribe here for this one.
As I’ve never received any communications yet, I have resubscribed to all of the above again. So, either these promised communications are never actually sent (and if so, then why bother advertising a newsletter apart from just hoarding e-mail addresses), or they’re just not delivering to me.
I do know of one business who regularly scans their e-mail subscribers listing to make sure they’re not sending any communications to “undesirables”. Given my criticism of the NCA and scepticism regarding Eddie Hobbs, I wonder am I victim to these filters.
Let me know if you’ve received any of the above newsletters – even better, can you forward them to me here please?
On the positive side, the European Consumer Centre, Dublin have a newsletter which arrives regularly and provides some quite interesting and useful information. You can sign up for this one here.
