I have just come off the phone to the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association. In fact I have just emailed them all the links I am about to share with you.
You see, I wanted to check out a recent follower @UK_debt_advice - user name Resolve UK - because the claim that the MOD and the SSAFA trust a commercial debt advisor demands investigation. I found a number of associated urls:
There were no reciprocated links from any apparently trusting bodies, which include the police force apparently (there is more than one as I recall).
Anyway, the SSAFA told me in no uncertain terms that they did not have a special relationship of "trust" with any commercial debt counsellor and that they should be contacting their solicitor forthwith.
Disgusted at what I spotted as a possible trend, I dug a little further (not sure if these are the same lot yet) and found: http://www.militarydebt.co.uk/services/ aka http://www.nationalmoneyhelpline.co.uk and who tweet as: http://twitter.com/moneyhelpline without so much as a #ff or #charitytuesday for the charity they claim to support.
As Wilfred Owen might very well say:
Was it for this the clay grew tall?
