Dear All
I am a Manx resident and a recent arrival from UK. Am 40 with a little girl in primary school. I have a sizeable chunk of my life savings in Kaupthing. This was the proceeds of selling my flat in England, ironically about 6 weeks ago. My only real constructive advice to give at present is that we should be cautious about kicking up too much fuss about the Isle of Man this week until things become clearer. This is chiefly because if we cause a total run on the banks here there would be no one to pay the compensation scheme compensation. Beyond this I just wanted to say to anyone who is coming to the Isle of Man to try and find out what is going on, please feel free to pop round to my house and have a cup of tea and a chat in the garden - or a glass of wine if that is needed. I know it must be awful sitting in a hotel going through all this - so if we can provide anyone with a bit of hospitality on the island do please get in touch on (phone number removed).
God bless to all -

Please don't post personal information in public forums - this is for your own privacy/protection. Here we're a nice bunch people, but you never know who might find the info via Google etc, maybe years from now.

How can we make contact with others?

How are we supposed to make contact ng? I cannot see any Private Msg facility. Or am I going blind (or daft!). And you are removing contact details unilaterally.

I wanted to contact expat re meeting once I am on IOM later - but have no way to send him my phone no.
