    Yes, I feel the Facebook page for owners unbiased feedback is in fact a page that has been setup by Yourownstore.co.uk. I am taking the matter further.. Awaiting feedback from Trading Standards.

    Wrong, a group of store owners set up this Facebook page and are taking legal action against Bright Light Media / YourOwnStore.

    Trading Standard is considering taking action against this company too.

    The BBC has also demonstrated interest with this case and will showcase this scam in the very near future

    I will be very interested in hearing what happened with the legal action against Bright light Media/Your own store. LeoBiggs can you kindly let me know where the store owners have set up a Facebook page and how they are taking legal action. I would also like to join in.

    I have also been scammed by yourownstore.co.uk. I bought a website from yourownstore.co.uk for £3500 pounds promising that it would make £45000 per year, if I just spent a few hours on the website per week.

    I have had a yourownstore website for 12 months and have received £26 in commissions.
    I have employed a SEO management company to assist and in spite of both our efforts to increase traffic I get fewer than 100 visitors each month, never mind daily.
    It is advertised as passive income and it most certainly is NOT, there must be successful owners somewhere but i have yet to find them, wouldn't touch them with a bargepole.

    I do feel for the majority here. A lot of the comments I have read are from honest 'working' people whom have either lost their job, or wanted a part-time residential income to see them through. BLM need to get down from their ivory tower and let justice take it's course.

    I bought a site through them a year ago and really wish I thought about it more before I parted with my money. I thought it would be a fast way to get going but with all problems I had it only took longer. The site was very temperamental, I was always seeing errors and eventually scrapped it.

    Now that I have much more coding experience it shocks me on how much they want for such poor quality workmanship - and they're still going!

    My advice is buy some software with support, get your hosting and domain yourself - it's really not hard. Then hire a developer to make tweak it to your needs. Some great affiliate datafeed software I have tried and tested in this field is Price Tapestry. For £200 it's a lot cheaper and with the aid of a template in just a few hours you could produce something even better that yourownstore.co.uk.
