Hey all,

Martins image is being used on several ads on Reddit.

I wasn't sure where to put this but it probably wants to be looked at. This is one of many ads that are currently showing up at the moment.


Lloyds Mastercard: £0 (0% until December 2018) - I did it yay!
Virgin money: £2000 (0% until June 2019) - regular £150 payments, still in use.

    There is a post made 2 days ago (so presumably after you started this thread) in the link you provide above that explains how to report it. Others seem to have already followed that advice.

    If you really want to trouble Martin directly, the best way to contact him is via twitter. @martinslewis

    Although I'm not sure he will get too excited about his picture appearing on an anonymous (it seems Danish registered)scam website that tries to be a counterfeit copy of the Daily Mirror/Mirror Group Newspapers site, but must links seem ti go to some obsure .info website registered in Germany.

    Martin sold this site yonks ago, and hasn't really bothered much with this forum since. (save for his publicity agents to advertise his appearances elsewhere)

    Perhaps consider reporting the matter to Mirror Group Newspapers which the site you refer to appears to be attempting to rip off.

    But thanks for posting. I would probably never have seen this obscure website otherwise :)
