Fake Website.
« on: April 29, 2011, 11:46:48 PM »
I've have been told that someone was looking for a new lens for his camera and he came across this site, www.yorkshirecameras.com/ he asked a friend of mine if this was the current lens as the price was very good if not too good, a quick look and this site is found to be a fake site, so lucky he did not part with any money.

Please note the company the say they are part of Martins Cameras are real and my friend has had good service from them in the past.

WOT  (Web of Trust) Firefox add on rates the site as "Very Poor" which would be enough to keep me away from them.

There is an address and a telephone number for them on the site as well as VAT number and company registration number. Anyone gone and knocked on their door?

The fraudulent warning can come up due to nasty software on their site or problems with links. So all MAY not be as it seems.

Colin, if you go to the Martins Camera website, it says on there that it is not associated with them and a police investigation is going on - plus if you look at Street View, it doesn't look like a camera outlet!
