Scroll down to where it says 'Take the 30 second test' and read the customer comment in blue.

P.S. I wasn't looking for an ambulance chaser, someone emailed me the link after a colleague told them about it...

Hahahahahahahaha! Oh dear!!!!

I can't see what you mean.

oh my grin

hehehehe!

Purple - scroll down to the blue button which has written on it 'Take the 30 second test'.

Then read the blue text directly under it.

Wonder if that is a typo or did they really really mean to type that????

Typo? It's a bit more than that. I suspect a disgruntled former employee. It is causing much mirth in legal circles. I'm surprised it has been left up as long as it has.

Purple2012 Sat 02-Feb-13 09:42:15

Doesn't show it when I look. Wonder if it's because I'm on my phone.

EduCated Sat 02-Feb-13 09:42:36

Oh it doesn't come up on the mobile site. What does it saaaay?

OnceUponAThyme Sat 02-Feb-13 09:44:59

someone tell us poor mobile users what it says grin

ShellyBoobs Sat 02-Feb-13 09:45:49

It says:

I was getting bummed in a public toilet and slipped on a wet floor and split my head open... my boyfriend had to rush me to hospital. I just received a £2k cheque for 10 stiches in my head and a burst anus... thanks! Mr C Eyley

Purple2012 Sat 02-Feb-13 09:46:51

Love it. Just logged on a proper computer and saw it.

ShellyBoobs Sat 02-Feb-13 09:47:56

The thing is, it's not a small user comment of the sort you'd see on Amazon or similar.

It's in large, bright text and actually part of the webpage rather than something a customer could have added themselves!

Paiviaso Sat 02-Feb-13 09:52:13

Hahahaha amazing. Totally a disgruntled employee, or they've been hacked.

It would be even funnier if one of those little diagrams (like the falling off a ladder) could portray the customer's experience. grin

TheFallenNinja Sat 02-Feb-13 10:40:14

Superb

I've seen this link everywhere in the last week. Disgruntled employee or marketing scam (you've all clicked and had a good look at the website haven't you?) ;)

Condolences on your broken biscuit Mr Elsey.

Shrieking a la Mitford. gringringrin

...or marketing scam

I'd be inclined to think that if it wasn't such a large company. And the wording is a little close to the bone or beyond that.

AmberLeaf Sat 02-Feb-13 11:49:27

Someone posted this the other day grin is it real?

People were saying then it must be a disgruntled former employee?

Or as someone else said a clever marketing ploy? but surely you wouldnt take the company seriously after that?

TWinklyLittleStar Sat 02-Feb-13 11:51:25

If it is a marketing scam it's not a very good one, since seeing this earlier in the week I've been convinced the website is a piss take. Are they seriously a real company?

It's not randomly generated from real customer feedback, if it was then surely they'd have a script which rotated a few different comments rather than only returning that one.

I suspect it's done on purpose so their site goes viral, and it's close to the bone because they are going to claim they didn't put it there and can't be held accountable for customer comments.

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Sat 02-Feb-13 14:41:09

I wonder if they're going to do a TV advert next, except instead of having a man falling off the wrong sort of ladder or someone falling in a moist office lobby, it will feature a man getting bummed in a public toilet - every advertisement break through Jeremy Kyle.
