    It's been temporarily spammed while we do some further background checks on the deal link. The OP has been contacted and we are awaiting feedback from them & the thread will be returned if everything checks out. Thanks for your patience in the meantime.

    why is this a scam. They have not asked forany bank details. I traced them to this site jajah.com/pro…ts/

    I posted a o2 deal a few weeks ago where quidco were offering £200 cashback on sim only contracts. Posted it twice, it dissapeared twice. Then someone else posted it and it dissapeared too. I then emailed the mods twice. Didnt get a response.

    I think some deal hotuk made with o2 didnt get honoured by o2 so now the mods keep making the threads dissapear in an attempt to exert revenge.

    Cashback offers aren't classed as deals, as you still have to purchase the item (in this case at normal RRP) and then be a member of a particular cashback scheme to claim the benefit. Because of this they are always moved to MISC when attached to a RRP deal link - the MISC thread has been widely discussed however. Your duplicate posts would have been member spammed as duplicates hence the fact you didn't receive a MOD PM.

    Well i felt the need to post it 'again' as the first one was removed without explanation, so unless, going by your theory, someone who spammed did so on the hypothesis that i was going to create a another thread about it, once the thread dissapeared, then you would be correct. And thanks for responding to every message you get.

    It all makes sense now why i just recieved an infraction from you. Policing some more vigourously then others must be great.

    Oh and not "always"
