This feels like it's totally trying to rip off this site.

Not sure there's anything that can be done though?

Thanks. Bookmarked.

This looks a lot like self promo, posting a sub with under 10 subscribers. If you did happen to be the creator, it's a bold move ripping off a trademarked name when the sub creators name and address can be found in seconds from a google search.

​Wtf? How stupid would I have to be to try to self promote by saying, "this feels like... A rip off. Not sure there's much that can be done though?"

The creator is a ****, hence posting here to try to get it shut down. Ffs, try to do some good. I won't bother next time.

On registration dates alone I would surmise that this site would have grounds to take action against hotukdealsonline

That's not the right information for the person who has made the reddit sub mentioned in this thread, try search harder.

Ah - you're right. I searched for the HotUKdealsonline website instead of the username who posted the reddit sub

That's not the official HUKD subreddit
