Argos website down

We’ve had a number of you contacting us asking why the links to the Argos website are not working. Its a fault within Argos system itself, and we’ve just had the following statement issued to us:

“Dear JoinFreesat,

Argos experienced a power outage at about 3:30 yesterday and to prevent further system failure the
decision was taken to take the website down at 8.30 last night so that the recovery work could be done.
We are currently working hard getting the site live again and expect this to be up and running shortly.

Apologies for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we resolving this issue.

Kind regards,

Argos team”

Edit (11:52) – Back up again now!!!

  1. I had an email yesterday (08/08/08 @ 15:42 hours); apprently from The Internet Team @ Argos confirming my order reservation number worth £109.98 & in-case of queries click on the link provided.

    I HAVE NOT ORDERED ANYTHING; FURTHERMORE THE COLLECTION POINT IS IN LEYLAND; SOME 250 MILES FROM ME.

    In all intense purposes the email looks totally authentic. I did not click on the links but tried to access the Argos website via a google search & came to discover that the site is down.

    Interestingly, the email account at which I received the email – I only use this email for another Company – Argos would not have know that email address.

    I can’t help but feel that something is “not right”
