    I don't think it's a scam. As to whether they provide a good quality product, I'll leave that to more learned posters to say.

    Anything with "True" in the title is almost certainly scam, but there's some logic behind this. The service level titles are... err, wtf. The basic analysis is free though, and privacy policy at least *sounds* reasonable. Tying number of kits to service levels seems poor marketing, does anyone even have 10 personal kits? That's also begging for people to get together 10 people pools to test, at which price that would seem reasonable. It also seems like analysis of same person from different services should be covered in one analysis.

    My results weren't entirely unreasonable. The uploads failed on my ADSL connection, but mobile broadband worked fine, analysis closer to 2 minutes. Number in parenthesis is "Genetic distance measures how close you are to a given modern population. Many modern populations are surprisingly close to another, which is often due to true common ancestry." thought it was percents at first. However the modern calculator results look closest to know genealogy, if you take the genetic distance as indicative of amount shared.

    FTDNA: 50% Hunter-Gatherer, 32% Farmer, 13 Metal Age Invader, 5% non-European (But everybody seems to get around same and no individual samples?)

    First 23andMe V3 (Similar to FTDNA) raw data:

    Viking + Scythian (6.378)
    Scythian + Avar (7.458)
    Scythian (9.5)
    Avar (10.53)
    Viking (13.83)

    1. Western Pommerania Unetice (2000 BC) (7.956)
    2. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (7.956)
    3. Scythian Ukraine (600 BC) (9.5)
    4. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (10.53)
    5. Halstatt (775 BC) (11.95)
    6. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (12.69)
    7. Caspian Steppes (1550 BC) (12.85)
    8. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (12.96)
    9. Celt / Hungary (590 AD) (13.07)

    1. Finnish (6.538)
    2. Southwest_Finnish (6.680)
    3. German_Central (8.730)
    4. East_German (8.753)

    AncestryDNA, almost identical results despite low overlap between SNP's tested:

    Viking + Scythian (6.215)
    Scythian + Avar (7.305)
    Scythian (9.717)
    Avar (10.29)
    Viking (13.81)

    1. Western Pommerania Unetice (2000 BC) (7.948)
    2. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (7.948)
    3. Scythian Ukraine (600 BC) (9.717)
    4. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (10.29)
    5. Halstatt (775 BC) (12.33)
    6. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (12.58)
    7. Ancient Gotlander (2750 BC) (12.6)
    8. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (12.67)
    9. Celt / Hungary (590 AD) (13.37)

    (23andMe data Ancient Gotlander was Caspian Steppes; could be because they're one of the masked groups)

    1. Finnish (6.234)
    2. Southwest_Finnish (6.646)
    3. German_Central (9.022)
    4. East_German (9.139)

    FTDNA, one parent:

    Celt + Scythian (6.78)
    Scythian + Avar (7.104)
    Scythian (8.222)
    Avar (11.25)
    Celt (14.35)

    1. Western Pommerania Unetice (2000 BC) (7.507)
    2. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (7.507)
    3. Scythian Ukraine (600 BC) (8.222)
    4. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (11.25)
    5. Celt / Hungary (590 AD) (11.69)
    6. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (12.38)
    7. Medieval Tyrolian (590 AD) (12.53)
    8. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (13.43)
    9. Siberia Andronovo (1500 BC) (13.55)

    1. East_German (7.383)
    2. Czech (7.494)
    3. Southwest_Finnish (8.632)
    4. Hungarian (8.918)

    Same parent, 23andMeV5:

    Scythian + Avar (8.011)
    Celt + Avar (8.214)
    Scythian (11.23)
    Avar (11.93)
    Celt (14.7)

    (Cythian + Avar and Celt + Avar are very close to each other, they swap places in this)

    1. Western Pommerania Unetice (2000 BC) (7.891)
    2. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (7.891)
    3. Scythian Ukraine (600 BC) (11.23)
    4. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (11.65)
    5. Avar (590 AD) (11.93)
    6. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (12.52)
    7. Siberia Andronovo (1500 BC) (13.04)
    8. [Hidden] - upgrade your account (13.13)
    9. Hungary Iron Age (800 BC) (13.26)

    (Same Celt/Avar between kits of same person here, probably due to the masked groups)

    1. Czech (5.348)
    2. Austrian (9.995)
    3. East_German (10.59)
    4. Southwest_Finnish (10.75)

    (Austrian vs. Hungarian, well that's Austro-Hungarian, order of modern genetic distances is completely mixed though)



    Conclusion: For me the affinities are generally believable, the results are also fairly stable against choice of testing kit. 23andMeV5 which has least overlap with HumanOmniExpress variants and possibly most ethnic variety in variants is predictably most different. The child-parent difference here looks decent, and on regional level consistent with known genealogy. Reducing ancestry into just a single number, genetic distance, isn't really a good or modern approach though especially as nobody is just single ancestry. Everything also suggests the analysis isn't using phased genomes, which means parental mixture may be mistaken for a more ancient admixture, like the East/Centeral German thing there.

    Comparing siblings on ancestry analysis is less informative, because remember, siblings get *random* 50% from their parents, and these tests can only compare *genetic* ancestry. Because of that random reassortment and unreliability of really ancient family/history legends, it's likely impossible to really validate this sort of "feel good" analysis results, though Scythians and Avars seem pretty generic.
