When I try to open that address I get redirected to easily.co.uk, so personally I wouldnt recommend giving them any details, it sounds like soemone has seen your details on here and then got more from elsewhere, Might be worth giving them a ring though, and saying something along the lines of I was told I could purchase cheap processors with my credit card from this number, if they then turn round and say yes you can then chances are theya re phishers

CTC Marketing is a telemarketing agency for Future Publishing, that contacts subscribers within their renewal cycle, so it's all OK. (I can understand it seeming a bit odd as they don't have a real website!)
