    Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We have reviewed the form and even though it does not violate our terms, we have suspended the account. It seems that it s a phishing form to collect users information for other things.

    That's a typical scam page and it's amazing how many people get fooled!!   Victor - that form is still active :-)

    Yes, you are correct, a lot of people do fall for such various scams. That is why we suspend accounts that seem to be doing the same as well and keep the web safe :)

    Thank you for reporting it to us.

    The custom URL used was still showing the form, direct was not. However you would not be able to submit the form in either case and it is removed now.

    I will also raise this to our developers to inspect why it took so long for the form to still be shown (even after it was suspended), even though it was not working - since this is usually instantly done for all links.

    Again, thank you for reporting this to us :)
