    It's ben reported on here a few times recently that the ones listed don't work Rob. I didn't try to be honest but found on line many now want the full 17 digits too.

    I think you should keep the chat to cars and not promote your own business!!

    Hi. Sorry. I received a message supposedly from you asking me to look at your new website promoting bit-coin!!
    I assume it was some sort of spam!?
    Don’t wish to offend.
