Really? Where was this gymboy? (great name BTW)

Do you have a link?

gymboywalton Thu 04-Apr-13 12:49:02

no
i closed it down because it looked really suspect and i had already had to clean a virus off my computer this week.

it was a voice saying please answer this survey to wina prize or something

then a large box popped up saying 'mumsnet survey'

and the questions were something like 'how often do you visit mumsnet?'

a every day
b] once a week

that kind of thing

then a thing at the bottom saying that i could win an ipod

and it knew where in the country i was too

Hi gymboy

This is very odd - and we don't think it's one of ours! Sorry to raise the possibility just after you've done a virus check, but it might be worth doing one again.

oh bum
i did think it was weird

thornrose Fri 05-Apr-13 12:02:10

Of god gymboy, I thought that was an urban myth about being photographed on webcam shock

gymboywalton Fri 05-Apr-13 18:19:54

nope

it knew where i lived [well the area] and it took my photo
i had to phone the police and speak to the fraud squad and everything
