There was a report on them from watchdog last week. It was reported that they give you a really good quote then you send off your phone but they then say there's something wrong with the phone & bring the original quote right down so they don't have to pay out big bucks.

Be careful then mate, although watchdog may have made them buck their ideas up.

My mate at work got stung by them.... Offered him £180 for his S3 then when he sent it in said it wasn't in good enough condition and offered £130 !!

It also took him several weeks to get the money :(

I would imagine that from what is being said, advertising them high and paying out low is part of their business model! Think I'll steer clear. Thanks for the advice guys.
