Topic: Why are Postmen Attacked?
Replies: 14
Views: 8563

I guess it would be pretty costly for all the hundreds of postmen to have a police escort - besides they'd be better off with a securicor van :lol: , or even just insist on paying pensions into bank accounts. Of course then there would probably be more bank hold ups instead (yes they happen quite fr...

This is the old posting from February. As you can see it happened just before Christmas, and sure enough it happened again with the Easter bonus pensions last week.

Yes Mary it's in cash. Many pensioners in villages are paid monthly in cash by the postman. The postman delivers the cash to the village cafeneons and pays out the pension cash directly to each person on his list... all of whom are waiting in the cafeneon on payday. It's considered a perk by the pos...

Hania in the news

Hania has been in the national news a few times this week - and not good news I'm afraid. A five year old girl from Vamvakopoulo (a suburb of Hania) contracted meningitis and died. By the time she was diagnosed and just before being transferred to Heraklion hospital she died of septicemia. The nurse...

It's available through OEK (workers housing association) and you need to be living and working in Greece, insured with IKA or TAXI etc, and not own property or any land that gives you an income.

Malware & Prevx1

I had some really stubborn nasty malware on my machine, called Drivecleaner & something else I can't remember the name of now. Causing pop ups and download windows to appear frequently.
