Something really dodgy-looking you want to report, or ask a question about? This is the place.

I received an email supposedly from The Good Guys saying that I had won an iPhone 7. It started with a number of questions about what colour I wanted the iPhone, what memory etc. I moved along with the questions and I was pretty sure it was a scam. I think the last question was waiting for an answer but I noticed a little window saying that I would be subscribing to Biquamo Game (3x$6.60/wk +$6.60join, 25c/message sent. That’s where I stopped. It was a scam to join this Game group not win an iPhone. I contacted the Good Guys who disowned the message and asked me for details. On re-checking the site I noticed that the elements of the message (letterhead etc.) appeared to be just images snapped off the screen of a genuine Good Guys site.
