Erzis few wee tips fae Aunty furra ra innercints abroad:
    Searching for any user reviews of the site;
    Double clicking on the padlock symbol in the corner to reveal details about the company that registered the site; and
    Trying to connect the site to the real world by finding phone numbers or UK addresses.

Anyone prepared to give their name and address, and pay 5, can buy a co.uk domain name for a two-year period.

In total about 6% of registrations for "co.uk" domain names come from foreign companies, mostly based in China.
