Wing mirror scam

In response to Malcolm's post, this happened to a friend of ours recently in Marquixanes (near to Prades). She ended up paying a ridiculous amount, if my memory serves me correctly, in the region of 200 Euros. So it looks like this is definitely a scam to watch out for.

Lift wanted 19/09/13

My husband flies into Girona at 21.15 on Thursday 19/09/13. If anyone is heading in the direction of Vernet les Bains, come back to us (even Perpignan would be good). Happy to share fuel and toll costs,

Lift needed from Girona

We have a French friend who is arriving at Girona airport on Tuesday 28th May at 22.05 from Manchester. There is no Frogbus after that time, and so she needs a lift in the direction of Vernet les Bains. Please let me know if you can help. Thanks, Shona

Just to say that we have used this service numerous times over the last few months. In fact, we know longer book bags on with Ryanair. It's cheaper and easier to use Parcels Please. Items are often delivered within 2 days, but it can be up to 4 days. Similarly to an earlier posting, we have no veste...
