Citizens Advice refute Welsh hack allegation
Ambulance-chasing imposters to blame for outrage
Our article yesterday suggesting that Welsh nationalists had hacked the Citizens Advice Bureau website failed to impress a number of readers.
Among them was to Tim Blackwell who suggested we must have been "having a very low quality brain day if you truly imagine that www.citizenadvicebureaux.co.uk is the real Citizen's Advice Bureaux website. It's a pretty obvious pseudosquat by the nowinnofee people prominently advertised in the second paragraph."
Correct: the whole thing is nothing more than a front for some shameless ambulance chasers. In fact, www.citizenadvicebureaux.co.uk has nothing to do with Citzens Advice, as Andy Taylor was quick to point out:
As I work for Citizens Advice, I was a bit suprised to see your article today. Closer investigation shows that www.citizenadvicebureau.co.uk is not an official site, the domain is not even registered to the Citizens Advice Service.
I will pass this on to our Press Office who will probably be in touch with an official response.
In the meantime, I would appreciate it if you could update your story accordingly.
Regards, Andy Taylor
No problem. We reckon that the owners of www.citizenadvicebureaux.co.uk should run for cover and pull down the hatch. As for the "low quality brain day" slur, we'll let it pass. In the words of the old Jedi master: "Never let inconvenient facts impede publication of amusing story." This is a tenet to which we ridgidly adhere, as outraged members of the The New York Monaghan Association know only too well. ®
