    Oh that's good, I wasn't sure whether to post in this group or that one so as long as they are both covered. I clicked too thinking that it would be secure then I got suspicious that a) it didn't name me and b)it asked for card details.

    I've seen a warning on the QMUL website aswell now. I can imagine a lot of people falling for it sadly, it does seem quite believeable...
