    The fact that you have to pay £30 to initially register makes me slightly skeptical that it's a genuine site! :(

    I would say it is a scam, there just isn't that kind of work available these days.

    They also charge a joining fee, which they say is refundable from your first payment.

    They also say the fee is charged because in the past they have lost equipment when workers have left and not returned it. This loss is £800 a time, yet they only charge a £30 fee. Who are they kidding, losing £30 isn't going to stop someone keeping £800 worth of equipment, especially when that £30 is refunded in their first payment. So if they leave after they have recieved their first payment, they get their £30 back and get to keep £800 worth of equipment!

    I would stay well away from this company.

    I agree.

    The fact that they don't bother to inform Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs about this little venture also rings alarm bells.

    Definately gonna give it a wide berth.

    cheers
