      Sky 100 M&S vouchers promo

      Hi all, i came across this offer on Facebook: Sky.com - More likes means bigger vouchers

      Looks like you can get a 100 M&S voucher if enough people sign up to it. Better than the 25 they're currently offering i suppose

      Looking up the site on the WhoIs database, it shows as not being owned by Sky.

      Before signing on, could I recommend that people act cautiously with this one please?

      I will see if it is a genuine site though.

      P.S. It is hosted in Texas, NOT the UK.

      Hi Scubbie

      I looked at Whois as well as and the domain is registered with Sky:

      Domain Name.......... skyoffers.com Creation Date........ 2000-04-01 Registration Date.... 2011-08-31 Expiry Date.......... 2014-04-01 Organisation Name.... British Sky Broadcasting Group Plc Organisation Address. Grant Way ,Isleworth
      Organisation Address. Organisation Address. Organisation Address. London Organisation Address. tw7 5qd Organisation Address. Middlesex Organisation Address. GREAT BRITAIN (UK)

      Must just be that the site is being hosted externally

      cheers

      No problem.

      The screen looks like a copy of the Sky.com site, but I am currently signed into that, and not this skyoffers site, which immediately drew my suspicions.

      I've just tried another new website owned by Sky and that came up correctly using the same tool.

      I am still waiting for confirmation about the validity of the site which you linked above and would currently urge people to be careful.
