Smile Scam Advice

This is some useful advice I have summarised from an OFT Scam DVD:

Default Re: Scam Advice

I am new to this site and joined specifically (at least initially) to inform you guys about MarketWal. It did not appear on my forum search, so here is the little info' I have. Their website Marketwal.com purports to sell electrical goods and has as far as I am aware has a bogus address in Tottenham Court Road. They ask you to register with D.O.B Creditcard details for payment, address etc and also mothers maiden name. Yes I know I should have spotted that one. They do not answer emails or the telephone which I found out after trying to purchase goods. The credit cards are shown as not operative so after I tried 2 I decided something was amiss. Needless to say I stopped both credit cards but they still have all my other details. If you google marketwal you should find the same info' I did about their bogus operation.

It looks fine to me, but I only had a quick look. It is worth reporting this to Consumer Direct - see number at the top of the page.
