    It's only for people in the US and if you as me, it looks more like a site to gather CCs than anything else.

    People, to be honest I do not know.
    They are offering this free VPS for several months already it seems :
    Code:
    http://www.apparatusproject.org/blog/tag/source/
    Code:

    A VCC with a minimum (or zero) balance would counter any form of phishing, especially when only valid for a couple of months to a year.
    You could also have paid $5/mo and be ripped off by these guys :
    Code:

    There is always some risk with budget hosting.
