    Definitive list of authorised TDS custodial schemes?

    I see the DCLG have a list of the authorised providers for the new TDS - http://www.communities.gov.uk/index.asp?id=1504445

    However, given the current confusion over deposit schemes (especially as it is a mere 3 weeks away and things seem nowwhere ready) does anybody think that a group that sets up a convincing website ("www.you-deposits-protected.co.uk" ?) with a boiler-room style operation, making a few forum posts/targetted spam emails to garner interest and watching the deposits roll in is a possiblity (and, subsequently, doing a runner) ?

    Does anybody else think this could happen (or could already be happening?).
    Liability statement. My liability to you is not to exceed the amount you are paying for my recommendations or advice.

    I see a bright new future, where chickens can cross the road with no fear of having their motives questioned

    Thanks for the idea Wickerman! I've been trying to come up with an idea for making my next million.... I've got a boiler-room doing nowt and a great pair of trainers that are fantastic for running in....

    Seriously though, I thought there were only three schemes given government approval - so surely it would be sheer folly to deposit your deposits in any unapproved scheme!
