    Quidco - the latest internet scam?

    Quidco - the latest internet scam? 5th Sep 06 at 8:01 PM
    I bet I'm just one of many today who have had their accounts with Quidco terminated.

    Could Quidco have just been waiting for Europcar to pull their campaign so that they could make their excuses about 'abuse' and run off with our money? Quidco seem to be suggesting in their 'Account termination' email that Europcar have pulled from their site because of abuse of the program through Quidco. However, Europcar have, in fact, ended their campaign with ALL cashback sites. Very sly Quidco.

    I'm absolutely fuming about this.

    By the way, this is not the first time Quidco have been aggressive in their approach. There was a post on some Forum (which I wish I had bookmarked!) a while back about how they tried to put TopCashBack out of business when TCB was just starting up. Apparently they contacted all the affiliate networks and said something to the effect that TCB were abusing their affiliate links and that everything was not above board with TCB. Utter nonsense of course, just scared witless of some competition.

    Not looking so 'ethical' now, are we Quidco?!

    If you're new to cashback sites then avoid Quidco at all costs! is actually better anyway, run by decent, honest people. What's more TCB actually keep you informed when you make enquiries about missing cashback.
