    SCAM ALERT: iphonesimfree.com is a SCAM


    Iphonesimsfree is a SCAM. Here are the details:

    First i received the email saying that please send th epayment in accordance wit hthe proforma invoice. And the invoice gave the bank details where they wanted the money to be wired:

    Bank Name: Istituto Bancario Sammarinese (IBS)
    Address: Via Rivo Fontanelle, 96
    47892 Gualdicciolo
    Republic of San Marino (RBS)
    Tel: 0549911321

    Account Holder: Lucente Lorenzo

    Account # 000030301062
    IBAN: SM74Z0317109803000030301062
    SWIFT (BIC): ISBMSMS1XXX
    ABI: 03171
    CAB: 09803


    After the wire for 50 licenses is done. (which was 1800 dollars). I get the following email.

    this the last email i got from them:

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    Hello ,

    Sorry for the trouble, but if you did not send the money yet, do not send it.
    We are going to send you an updated invoice tomorrow with proper bank
    coordinates. Sorry for the trouble.


    --
    Best regards,
    iPhoneSimFree mailtorders@iphonesimfree.com

    XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX


    This is a FULL BLOWN SCAM and i will be reporting it to all the internet scam monitoring agencies (CIA, FBI, etc...) Iam pretty much sure that iam not the only one getting scammed here and i am pretty much sure in the coming months or years they will get the scammer(s) apprehended.

    iam not looking for my money, just a warning that DO NOT SEND THE WIRE.

    regards,

    Rick

    the silence is deafening

    where is Trash and Gussy and others??

    did you receive the same instructions, if so and you sent the money (to the same account number etc) and they are now saying it was the wrong account - you have all been had

    Yes I agree, that is a SCAM!

    How come we have not received out invoice yet? Why has no one else reported receiving an invoive. How come the numerous other reseller's have not said this?

    This is the reason all my corrospondance with IPSF is done over an address no one else knows about, that way people can't send me fake emails.

    First of all, I've tried to keep away from these iPhoneSimFree discussions. But I would like to ask one quesiton to everyone, please bare with me, iphonesimfree application is potentialy illegal, am i correct so far? If I am, please continue reading. If you a buying an illegal product, reporting it to the authorities will only get you in trouble right? I'm just curious. I've lost hope for a software unlock ever since the delay after delay ordeal. But since there' mentioning of reporting to the CIA, FBI, etc. I'm just curious as to how you can report a scammer selling illegal product and a buyer buying illegal product. Please dont take this as offensive, I'm just merely curious as to how the procedure works.

    To clarify my points, for example, a drug dealer say he will some amoutn of drugs, and when the buyer pays him and he doesn't deliver, the buyer can't go running to the police saying, "I paid him for the drugs but he didn't deliver, he scammed me!" Right?

    I like this analogy!!!

    It's just too bad that there is no software unlock...Does anyone know where I could possible get a cheap Turbosim so I can get my iphone working on T-mobile?

    I have tried to stay away from these as well

    This is a muddy situation. The product IPSF is selling is not illegal. Depending on the country of origin its probably all perfectly fine. There are country's where locking a phone is illegal. Its just not a black and white situation which is why Phone Unlocking companies set themselves up in places that allow them to operate legally.

    unlocking ur iphone is not illegal, the iphone was created in the US where laws allow phones to be unlocked, furthermore u using it not selling it so even if it was illegal, using it isnt a crime (i'm in canada and they freely advertise unlocking of any phone, including the iphone (hw unlock) on tv, malls, radio, etc).

    so Gussy hasn't gotten this email then

    we'll see who else pops up saying they did and sent money..

    even if this isn't IPSF, this is a scam, and would/should make allot of ppl very very hesitant.
