    This deal is almost certainly a scam, but I'll let you guys decide for yourselves:

    The website http://www.mobilemansion.net

    It basically offers you a free mobile phone providing you buy a CD for £20, and then find a further four people to buy a CD. They in turn find a further four people, and so on...

    The site is even offering brand new models such as the Siemens SX1 and the Motorola V600.

    At first glance, it seems to be a variation on the pyramid scheme in that it is described as a matrix scheme. It seems that you at least receive a CD for £20, whatever happens?

    The phrase, "If it seems too good to be true..." springs to mind.

    ............!

    This thread should be closed. There are plenty of similar sites - http://www.themobilematrix.com/index.html - pr!cks on ebay are selling this information to gullible souls who are duped into thinking they are buying a handset - in reality they are buying a list of this sort of site.
