Could have been worse - fatwallets reports that the site was just used for serving up Google Ads. It wasn't actually retaining any of the data collected.

Yeah it doesn't look as bad as it could have been

So it's diversion really to fake a form and competition to take you to ads afterward only? Our data went nowhere...

Was worried the data would be used.

I didn't enter this as it looked too good to be true. Website looked a bit dodgy.

I know how hard it is for peeps to see 'real deals' only experience brings that but I urge anyone who isn't happy with what they see to leave it well alone!

If you look on UK2net nearly everything with 'free' is taken and you can check out who owns the site - then do a miss marple and I've no doubt you will find it's a scam of some sort unless it's by a major retail player!

I was distracted by other things so filled it in on auto pilot if im honest, was too lazy to be curious.

i was exactly the same.
how cheeky of them

It's so easy to become complacent when you see a name you trust. I think that's why it was so easy to go for this one without too much thought...
