With no access to a credit card solely in my name and with a yearly levy of a minuscule £5 for 121 access means creating a PayPal account for that amount being silly I have no option but to leave. That said I would be happy to stay and pay ten times that amount if I could send money (good old cash) into an account.

The statement of the site "Buzz50 is completely free in all areas and I intend it to stay this way for ever so please only donate or buy Buzzer Points if you can easily afford to do so :)" obviously means naught now.

You have several options if you have a partner I’m sure they wouldn’t mind paying the £5 with their card.
You could stay and enjoy everything else Buzz has to offer .
There’s plenty to enjoy , I never use the 121 chat ...and I love Buzz.
To just up leave over a fiver would seem some what tough on your friends you use the 121 to chat too .
Buzz is a whole lot more than 121 chat imo

As Rips says, you can use your partners card, but this is entirely your choice.

I understand how NicolaD feels.......as we do not use our credit cards online at all.
I would love to send a cheque to Buzz, into an account...
having said that....I dont really use the 121 facility.....
so I have no problem.

Do many people on buzz do 121 private messages? If not, this annual fee may not work.

I fully understand your predicament Nichola as I have a friend who doesn't own a credit or debit card and there have been a few occasions when she has found it difficult to make a payment for something where it wasn't easy to just hand over cash.

I am wondering whether in your case it may be possible to pay the £5 by cheque, so that you are still able to enjoy the 121 chat. I am sure one of the mods will let you know.

Personally I think an annual fee before being able to use 121 is a great idea as it will hopefully stop any of those scammers that join up for an instant 'result'.

At the moment scammers can join Buzz50 for free and can be engaging in 121 conversation with an unsuspecting Buzz member.
At least if they are unable to use the 121 and are restricted to private messaging it does at least give their intended victim a chance to sit and read (and re-read) the mail at a slower pace and hopefully realise that the flowery, strangely written pm.....gives an uncomfortable feeling.....and can report it to the mods.

Almost certain, if a person doesn’t pay or is unable to pay the £5.00, they are unable to send private messages

I wonder why 121 users were singled out.

121 chat is free on other sites including facebook and google.

Thank's JuJo. I have vowed not to use my credit/debit cards online though.
