It certainly looks and is phrased like a scam.

Re: I assume Plus Net is not giving away free gifts

I just looked at "who called me" site, and auto directed to a PlusNet page saying that I am one of 100 people to be offered a free smart phone. 

All I have to do is enter my credit card details to pay a few £ for DHL delivery.

See attached.

 

This also a Scam???

The main domain of the evil-doers ::

https://whois.domaintools.com/craveslim.com

Looks like Iceland. Don't click on anything...

Just got off the phone with Natalie @ PlusNet... I told her the suspicious domain.  She confirmed that PlusNet provide SIM cards, but they don't sell phones anyway.

Wonderful, so just to confirm something is a scam, people spread the potential scam links by re-posting them?
Must be some logic there somewhere?

It launched while I was looking at ::

I posted the analysis of the domain in Domain Tools... not the domain!  Read posts more carefully!

Re: I assume Plus Net is not giving away free gifts

I assume you're talking to me?

I do read posts carefully, but then why are you promoting something you suspect is a scam?
That is advertising something in itself?

Businesses will only 'give away' something if there is something in it for them, i.e. tie you into a contract.

Schoolboy Business Studies there, but I'd better say no more.
