I'll take your Cortina and raise you a 600bhp AMG Merc...

Like you, I have no influence whatsoever. If I had, I would of used their services, not because of the bribes, but because they were genuinely a better company...but the ones with best liars, sorry sales team, won.

WTF?

Re: Registered Business Address is now private?

" Without access to the WhoIS information in this case, the businesses could have lost the domain name and had to re-brand."

That makes no sense whatsoever

How come the business didn't have a clue who sold them the business?

Surely the domain was registered to the business address?

If it was registered to an individual, how would the registrar know it's a business therefore exempt?

Maybe I'm missing something, but if a business can't tell you who sold them the business, they have bigger issues to worry about, like complete incompetence.

Re: Ah no wonder Capita's bloody Sales People havent got back to us

I winging a flying guess, but I'm going for an Avaya system.Basing this on the fat all the 6.x kit is has been dropping out of support starting about 6 months ago.

Avaya decided to put all their pricing quotes and sales on hold while they came out of Chapter 11 and did their public listing, so even the sales people couldn't get quotes, even if they wanted to.

I know we had exactly the same issue as you and also have loads of kit dropping out of support.
