But here comes the crunch; before you can be considered for the free trial, they want you to sign a post-dated banker's order form.
Yes, they do say you can cancel, but surely a true free trial is just that and you do not sign a full-blown banker's order until after the free trial.
What perturbs me is that once you have signed the banker's order you have given away your banking details and whether or not these could be used by unscrupulous operators is a matter of conjecture.
So to fill in a banker's order
form for a charity donation I went to the other local bank instead.
Anyone wanting a form with information about the appeal and a banker's order
can contact Rosalynde Walker at NEPAC, 11 Highfield Road, Westerhope, Newcastle, NE5 5HS, or Prof Stephen Proctor at Department of Academic Haematology, Newcastle Medical School, Leech Building, University of Newcastle, NE2 4HH.
The appeal of the survey package lies in its brevity, with only one page of questions that also contains a banker's order
form (a popular payment method), asking for planned, monthly donations.
The paperwork was not adequately represented to me nor was I given time to read the conditions before signing the banker's order
If money itself is an illusion, a convenience, then how much more so are banker's orders
, cheques, money telegrams, electronic credit transfers and so on?
