    So,

    Got sent this web address where you purchase 2 CD's full of extra's for different phones (ring tones, shareware software, etc...) for £40 and you get put on a list to receive a P900 as a free gift. As soon as 16 people purchase the CD's after you, they will send you a free P900.


    Looked through the website to see if there's a catch and there doesn't seem to be.

    Anyhow, take a look for yourself http://www.vx-matrix.com/main.html

    I think I've seen something like this before.... The vx.matrix bit is familiar... If I remember correctly (I'll sober up one day) it was something like pyramid sales and so should be avoided at all costs...
    Although if £40 isn't a lot of money to you, give it a try!

    It's a scam. It is a pyramid scheme and if you are not one of the first two or three at the start of the scam, then your chances of getting to the top are slim to none.

    IIRC, pyramid schemes are also illegal
