    Is this a scam?

    Hi everyone, new member here.

    I've been having a look for homeworking oppertunites while I study and when i've been running company/website names through google i've found links to here saying x is a scam, so clearly i'm not the only one after this kind of work.

    I've ran into this homeworking site, and would like opinions if this is another one of these scams.

    I setup a gmail account to get added to the "more info" e-mails these sites offer, incase some are nasty in spam or other junk. I've attached the material on a text file as it is quite a large e-mail I got back.

    If it is a scam (and the back of my head tells me it probably is) it's the most convincing one i've ran into yet.

    If you notice at the bottom of the mail I got, there is a Data Protection Register number and I went to the registry search here (enter Z9886634 in the number field) and there is indeed an entry for this company. I'm not sure how much that proves though. So I would like the views of those more experinced in weeding out such things.

    Is there anyone online I can contact about such sites? To see if they are the real deal? I thought about trading standards but I don't think they're the right body to ask about such things.

    2nd of all, I notice one of the adversts on the fourm (the one that links to therichdude.com/uk) isn't that linking to a scam page too? If so, why is it allowed on here?

    Thanks for your input, I look forward to reading and learning more on here.

    PS, I ran into this page http://www.theanswerbank.co.uk/Jobs-...ion432253.html when quiering the homeworking site. As you can see one person says this site works for them and they're earning x now per week. Unless i'm missing something there doesn't seem to be a profile search on that website so there's no way to check if that's that profile's only response to an answer ever or what.

    Usual PPC scheme. Unless you know what it is do not get involved.

    It is a freewebs site, if they earn so much can they not spend 7$ for a domain name ?
