  • As soon as i recieved the email addressed to "dear friend" i knew something was up.

    I then had a look at the sign in page and found "website under construction". That was all i needed to verify that this was a scam.

    I hope nobody signs up with this company giving out their personal details. They have gone through alot of trouble trying to make their page look authentic but it's easy to spot once you know what to look for. Besides, i never signed up to be a mystery shopper with a company based in India! :rotfl:Im in England, its a bit far to travel for an assignment. :eek:
    £30 Amazon vouchers for my primary school one for testing a website. Good work!!!

    If it sounds too good to be true, listen intently anyway, it might be. :D
