If it sounds too good to be true/ fools and their money are soon parted...anyone else want to add a tried and tested saying about getting scammed?
My initial feelings are that it sounds too good to be true and that it is a scam . in the initial stage there's certainly no money changing hands , in the link there's a comment along the lines of it being like given a lottery ticket which iff it's not a winning ticket hasn't cost anything.
Guesswork but I would assume that should Q's become accepted there would be transaction fees and costs to purchase more or if people can be convinced it has been accepted will be more prepared to pay those fees and perhaps if it isa scam that's when it starts to work?

Edit , just clicked on Facebook and one of the first things I see is a friend putting up the link for people to register .?
if you read the site, it asks for you to send a scanned copy of a personal check to verify your address ....... sounds suspect to me

Ah right . To be honest I haven't read through the site. When you say a personal check does that mean something like a utility bill or should that of read cheque ( surely not ) ?

If it works for you mate, all well and good. My cash is hard won though, and any ‘financial ‘ set up that ask for personal details and not money to start sounds proper dodgy to me. Do I wear a tinfoil hat? Nope! I have just been on the planet for a few decades. :D
I am not grumpy. I just don’t waste words.

:lol: I've been on the planet a few decades myself (just) they don't have any details that they can't find on Facebook and I've not handed over any money. when the day comes that they want more il cut my losses but until then it's a bit of fun.
