    Contact datacamp by phone and ask. Website looks good, not some punjabi half baked crap.

    I thought traffic in Singapore is expensive, but they have a server in Singapore for $510/month with 10 Gbit/s unmetered.

    Kaspersky, as a russian product, should be dropped.

  • I think it's a scam, similar to the website zumiv.com - zomev.com builds a beautiful interface + cheap prices to scam people.

    Could well be a scam, but also may be legitimate. It's too early to tell.

    It's a "UK company" and very recently registered by a non-resident: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/company/15527709/filing-history

    The company address is an accountants that handles many similar companies: https://find-and-update.company-information.service.gov.uk/search?q=WC2H+9JQ

    Personally, I don't trust any company that goes out of its way to pretend that it's in the UK when it's clear that everyone involved in it is outside the UK. Very occasionally, such companies are legitimate, but an awful lot of them mysteriously disappear right at the time the first year tax returns are due.

    They also don't price in GBP, which although not a slam dunk, is a bit suspicious for a UK company. That's not to say UK companies don't charge in USD, in fact my own company also charges in USD, but it just adds to the costs if you actually intend to keep the money in the UK. Of course, this is easily explainable if they're not a true UK company, but it'd also make me suspect that they don't intend to run any money through their UK front company, just use it for the appearance of legitimacy.

    Contact datacamp by phone and ask.

    Don't do that. Even though they list a UK phone number, it's a "premium mobile number" which means that not only is it not a standard number, it also won't be included in most people's free minutes and will cost at least 20p per minute to call. Also, it's probably VOIP to whatever country they're actually based in.

    Website looks good, not some punjabi half baked crap.

    The director is listed as being based in UAE, so Punjabi will be unlikely!

    zylut.com = Datacamp Int Limited (15527709)

    Datacamp limited (07489096).

    It's a scammer that abuses Datacamp's name.

    And look at the domain on his linkedin page (datacamps.co.uk).
    https://www.linkedin.com/company/datacamp-int-limited/

    Datacamp's domain is datacamp.co.uk.

    Just out of curiosity. Where did you stumble upon this scammer?

  • BlaZeBlaZe Member, Host Rep

    https://www.1stformations.co.uk/registered-office-service/

    Go here if you want the same address as Zylut.

    The prices seem to be to good to be true for Malaysia atleast.

    Skåne-Möllan AB I think, but it could be a front for Russians.
