  1. 1ana1 are probably one of the worlds most unreliable companies in the history of mankind, i have repeatedly asked for my refund/credits to be posted out to me by cheaque as i am no longer a customer, and they are still dragging their feet after 20-30 different types of communication with them,telephone ,email, hand written letter…but still no results..they are garbage, anyone thinking of doing business with them i would advise not to under any circumstances, i myself, if i do not get a possitive response from them in the next seven days will have no option but to see them in court and they will then have all my legal costs to refund aswell at the end of it all, which will be much greater than the monies they actually owe me but i will win, of that i am am certain because they have continued to drag their feet.
