    Hi

    I came across the following site which offers a free sat nav and pays you for using it? It all sounds a bit too good to be true but wondered if anyone had used or heard anything about them?

    www.satnavpro.com

    Thanks

    They pitch it as using your information to correct mapping errors, which they then feed back to the mapping providers.

    The registrant for the domain is hiding their identity behind a proxy domain registration service, and their website seems to be VERY shy about who they actually are.

    It all seems far too good to be true...

    Sorry but the website is vague in the extreme and missing registered company details

    They want personal details including Bank and Credit Card Details and a photo of your driving licence (As well as taking a shipping fee)

    Oily as !!!!. I'm guessing you have to enter a shed load of details, which they then pass on, only to e-mail you and say "Thanks for your interest in SatNavPro, unfortunately, you have not been selected to be a member at this time. Thanks for your personal details and good luck"

    Keep well well away.

    It's a big scam and should be shut down.

    They claim to have been awarded millions of dollars, which makes me wonder a) why their website is so naff, and b) why they aren't a ltd company or an inc
