    Did any off you, like me, join Local Stock, as advertised on ephotozine, a couple of years ago? It would appear that the site has been suspended, so I wonder how many people spent their hard earned cash on a 'life-time membership' on what appears to have been a rip-off scam.

    I can find nothing on the Net about the site or the owner. Any help would be appreciated.

    Is this the site you're referring to?

    No, that is an American site, the defunct one was UK. However, the wording of the site is very similar. From what I can see, they are not asking for money from those who wish to submit images.

    Did you ever achieve any sales through this stock site?

    Hi CanonMan, no sales, although that may have been that people didn't want my images. It's something I will probably never know.

    I made no sales from them either but have from other stock sites. It would be interesting to know, if anyone else from here signed up with them, whether or not they made any sales. Don't be shy, let us know.

    Looks like the account has now been "Un-suspended" and the website is running again. Not sure how long for though, as this has happened before.
