Don't take any techfaq exam - Scam

While searching I found techfaq as a free mock exam, in many of the search results. When I go to that web site, there was a link for the FREE test for the 5.0 version. I feel happy and take that exam. I got confused when I see those questions are about Home interfaces and DD elements. There were no any single question about annotations. Finally I understood that it for a previous version (3.X), but only the title is changed to 5.0 to get our attraction.

However, I continue that mock exam up to the end and finally they said that the results were send to my email address. I checked my inbox, and it shows another URL. I though that my results were there. But when I go to that site, it asks me to specify another 3 email addresses of my friends. As the page mentioned, if I do not specify valid mail ids, they will delete my results. But I don't like to let my friends to get spammed! So, I entered some random-mail-addresses. They accepts the given email ids, but they doesn't show me the results and reviews.

This stupid web site wastes my time a lot. You guys don't attempt to use those exams from techfaq, it is a scam. They get yours and your friends mail ids to spam. Very bad!
