My apologies if this is in the wrong section.

Has anyone had any experience of these people?

I'd appreciate any feedback as it seems like a good way to make some money in my quiet times?

Kind regards,
Bernard

I don't recall ever seeing them mentioned on MSE before. The fact that their website has only an email as contact and they are not upfront about charges for the programmes and packages is a red flag to me.

The whole style of their website is very off putting. What can they tell you that you could not find elsewhere, for free?

If they put "Work for under minimum wage" on the ads would that help?

Hmmm, an earnings disclaimer on their website.

Cardiff to London for 331, I don't think so.

Pemsrp,
No. I thought I'd rather spend the subscription money on going round local small businesses, e.g. Wholesale bakery, dropping off a card telling them I was available for general delivery work driving their vehicles on a self employed as required basis.
A local engineering company had a guy off sick so I got 4 days with them.
Good luck,
Bernard

I am glad to see someone who Googles a company before falling into the trap. Welcome to MSE: it is full of useful information.
