You asked, These are scam? Yes, they are scams. Generally, they will play out in one of two ways: The sugar daddy will send you money in a way that is reversible, then ask you to send some back in a way that is not reversible. Once you've bought the gift cards (or sent the wire transfer, or whatever) they will secretly reverse the original transaction. ...

To supplement the present answers: one important reason was to ensure that Britain's financial leaders could be summoned quickly during a crisis. That changed when the market was deregulated by Margret Thatcher. Until then the Bank of England had insisted that all of London's banks had to be within 10 minutes' walking distance of the governor's ...

This is not only typical for banks in London, but to other types of businesses everywhere. Similar businesses tend to stick close together, an interesting phenomenon explained in Why do competitors open their stores next to one another?, an animated lecture by Jac de Haan. Basically, if there is a physical distance between you and your competitor, then ...

In fact, City of London is a Tax haven as point out by article like this. It is administered by City of London Corporation and not under the jurisdiction of Greater London. This explains why even with a property price tag of £17,371 per m², there are many companies willing to pay the premium rent to open a business there. And you can bet even with all ...

Historically, one reason is that the needs of "modern" banking (that which emerged during the 18th century) more-or-less required that banks were close to each other, since much of their business with each other – in particular the settling of payments by cheque – was conducted "in person". Quoting from the section 17th–19th centuries – The emergence of ...

Your question of, Why would I, as a consumer, choose X over Y? is really only half the puzzle here. As basically stated in quid's answer, There may not be a good reason for you to choose X over Y.

If the client is not willing to cooperate, which I'm assuming is the case, there is no way to prove it definitively. Any sane authority should agree that the burden of proof rests on the client to prove that it has been paid. If the client is unable to produce such proof, he is generally judged as not having paid. Also payer's (client's) bank account ...

You don't need proof. If you believe someone owes you, just bill them for whatever you think is owed. The burden of proof is on them to show they paid. On the off-chance they have, any competent business will have no trouble showing this. However, that should not be happening. Sometimes, that is a routine issue that is easily explained, like paper ...

You can't prove a negative. Therefore, you cannot prove that an invoice is unpaid; it is assumed to be unpaid on claiming so, and the payer has to prove that he paid. That should be easy for him, if they did pay.

You can, sort of. It depends on how technically you define the term "bank" and how far you're prepared to stretch the term "self-hosting". In principle, you could start your own bank, but I understand that's not the intention. Technically, building societies are not banks: So, what exactly is the difference? Key to understanding the distinction between ...

A debit card, which is linked to a bank account, is just one of the ways to make a payment from that bank account. However, the card can only be used to make a payment to someone who has a merchant account which allows reception of card payments. A merchant account is for businesses, and the holder of the merchant account will have to pay a commission on ...

Bank cards are like keys to a house. They grant access to the stuff inside but don’t themselves contain that stuff. When you deposit money at a bank, the bank takes your money and credits it to your account. You can then access those funds via various ‘keys’ - cards, internet banking, passbooks, etc. When you have an account at another bank, that’s like ...

If you are trying to do it for the sake of saving tax, it won't help. The amount will still be treated as your income. If it is consultation work you are doing, you may consider filing your taxes under 44ADA which would consider 50% of your income as expense.

Is there a way to specifically reach out to these card providers and opt-out of the binding arbitration? If you already have a card from them, you are bound by the current agreement.
