The Parliment Member’s question against a company definitely creates a feel that Freedom 251 is a scam. However in the recent case, the company has first told the people to register and then sent them a payment link. Many people proceed and paid the cost.
However by observing the response of social media users, we came to know that Freedom 251 hasn’t sent the confirmation email and the time span of 48 hours is already passed.
