Howly is a company that says it will help solve issues with suppliers, stores etc. I was directed to this company after trying to solve a problem with Uber. You pay $1 for initial contact but have to input card details. I received email conversation saying what they had done to resolve the problem but were unsuccessful. I then got a bank alert about at $55 charge. This was a monthly subscription. I demanded and got my money back and was asked by TrustPilot to write a review. I did and my review is being disputed. However there are more negative reviews all saying they were signed up for subscriptions than positive ones with good results. 

I did not read all the reviews but there where lots from this March all saying they had been signed up illegally

As I see it, is simply trying to do what The AnswerBank also seeks to do (i.e. answering questions and providing advice) but on a paid basis.  I can't think of any reason why I'd want to involve a Cyprus-based company in a UK dispute.

Problem was I didn't see where was based till I got my bank alert! My moneys back though

Glad you got your money back, there's quite a few companies working to a similar model.

Have you sorted your Uber problem out?  Did you report it to the local council or TFL if you live in London?

Uber in Esposende near Porto. Granddaughter got her key back


I do tend to assume everything is in the UK.  I don't know about private hire licensing in Spain but I do know they must be licensed.  I know a few ex-pats who have been caught doing airport runs for 'friends'

All Ubers here have a licence number in their windshield and are well regulated as are taxis
