The first major red flag is the complete lack of encryption of any kind. Cornerstonepayday.com had a purloined SSL certificate, but the site was designed in such a way as to make it impossible to actually submit your data over SSL even if you tried. Cashadvances.co.uk handles this problem by having NO encryption on it's submission form at all. If you try manually changing the HTTP in the address bar to HTTPS and hit "Enter" you get the following browser error:
Secure Connection FailedCashadvances.co.uk is asking for your employment history, birth date, contact information and other personal details but doesn't bother to encrypt it. I don't know if the law is different in the UK, but in the USA, an operation prompting for that kind of data over the Internet without using encryption would be violating of a number of laws and regulations.
An error occurred during a connection to www.cashadvances.co.uk.
SSL received a record that exceeded the maximum permissible length.
(Error code: ssl_error_rx_record_too_long)
The page you are trying to view can not be shown because the authenticity of the received data could not be verified.
Please contact the web site owners to inform them of this problem. Alternatively, use the command found in the help menu to report this broken site.
In short, don't apply for a loan of any kind through Cashadvances.co.uk. They're probably a con operation, and if they aren't, they're too incompetent to be trusted with your data.
