No. It's a very obvious and well documented scam.

It's exactly the same site but with a different name that we've seen countless times before. Surely that they persist with changing the name and bothering to set up new sites (not that it takes five minutes to change the words) means that they must have made some money out of the venture?

None of the photos are real! I saw a sign in one of the photos and looked it up on the internet and found they were located in North America!
