The following has been taken from another forum (im sure they wont mind :p ) but I thought it would be worth posting just incase you are thinking of signing up.

"I signed up to Customer Street after they told me I would be guaranteed 30+ jobs a month and that I would more than likely get more work than I could handle.

When something sounds too good to be true it normal is, as it was in this case.

Six weeks down the line and not a single phone call form a customer so I phoned up Customer Street who have put my name, residential address and mobile phone number on the Internet for the whole world to see without my permission and asked for my money back.

Three weeks later one of their sales reps tries to convince me to stay with them offering discounts etc etc. I say no thanks just give me a refund. After they try several more times to convince me to say on without success I get my money back.

The next day I get a call from Trading Standards. The say to me

I have quite frequent e-mails..

telling me my on-line banking has been frozen due to suspicious activity..

and that I need to follow.. "THE MAGIC LINK";) :eek: :^O:^O to update my details! phtt! :|

The best laff...

most are from banking institutes where I do not even have a physical account ..

let alone an on-line access to it!!!

The only worrying thing is...

there must be some people who ACTUALLY follow these links?

otherwise "captain scam phisher" wouldn't post em out? :( :(
