• unlock scammers want a donation after saying its free

      UnlockYourPhone.me (18 Complaints)

      This person or persons operate a scam. What they do is the following: They advertize on their website that they will unlock any IMEI from any phone manufacturer and carrier all over the world for free, then when you request their service for free vía their online form, they send you an email with a download Link To an .eze file, which i analyzed online before even trying To execute it, and found trojans and adware. Anyway, the file when executed tells you that you have To download another file. They apparently get paid for these download hits. If you dont follow, you get a second e-mail, this time from [email protected], saying that the problem with the unlock Was on their end, and want you To make a donation in order To get the unlock code, but once again they put another download link for you To Click. This is the 2nd email: Dear User,

      We understand that we had technical problems at our end, we apologize for the inconvenience. We assure you that this time you will receive your working code, thanks for your patience.

      Please download this file which contains your code & simple instructions.

       They don't let you choose how much you want to donate for example if you want to donate $1.00 you can not. They force you to pay $5.00 as a donation thru PayPal. So probably as other ppl have reported about similar websites, when you contact them and ask for the service that you paid for, they state that they don't know you or state that you have not donated anything yet that you have to donate again. You then have to open a dispute on PayPal stating what they were doing and request that they send you the item you paid for. This person or persons after PayPal contacts them, will likely send you a message asking u to cancel the dispute that they will send you the item in 24 hours. If you dont, they will open another claim as a seller with PayPal stating that they received a donation from you, not a payment, a clear indication that they have this scam all planned out and they have no intentions whatsoever to deliver any service or item to you. If you contact this person through e mails all he will do is evade your claims. He is probably ripping off thousands of people and getting away with it. We have to do something about it.

    People will fall for this, because they get blinded by the word free and want to be in before the free disappears. The website itself screams of scam.

    My download link is exactly the same as yours! Must be a scam! I also got a second email after the first unlock code didn't work saying: Dear User, We understand that we had technical problems at our end, we apologize for the inconvenience.
