In the past 24 hours you may have received a mail from '[email protected]'
with the subject 'Server updating'. This email is not from
and you should not follow any instructions contained within.

The email is part of an elaborate confidence trick. The email contains
a form for you to divulge your card and personal details to an unknown
third party. The form then submits this data (via an intermediary
website) to the unknown party.

We have closed the site in question (relaying this data) and are
working on collating data in order to pass onto the relevant
authorities and organisations where possible.

Please be aware that never asks for either your PIN number or
social security number. In future if you receive any payment request
from a address, double check you are being asked to login to
the top right of click here. The only way we request payment is
securely from our own site. If you are in any doubt always email before proceeding.

Please also note, no personal information on our servers was
compromised. We do not store any credit card details after any purchase.
