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
Republic of San Marino (RBS)
Account Holder: Lucente Lorenzo
Account # 000030301062
SWIFT (BIC): ISBMSMS1XXX
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:
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.
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.
well well well....
You seem bitter about something..
You forgot the answers where they get the recognition they should get.
I'd say someone is definitely a worthless writer.
CNN, Ryan Blocks/Engadget, by embracing IphoneSimFree, Screwed us all!
Reporters with Brands like this, that people follow and expect a certain amount of integrity and due diligence from, have caused poeple like that poor guy in the thread, to lose a huge ammount of money, and, worse of all, they have aided and abetted a con artist, though unknowingly, and purely out of amteurishness/ stupidity.
They should apoligize to the community and retract their statement at the least..then fire this Ryan character and the other monkeys at CNN.
Would CNET ever caught with their pants down like this? Nope.
Says a lot about CNN and Engadget really, hacks pretending to be reporters.
Just my opinnion.
This has already been reported
Close this poll
It is unbelievable that ppl start threads that alreay exsist. I don't care about a poll. Why do you started this thread? To have the honor of your name next to it?
This forum REALY needs to moderated. And for new members, the ability to start a thread should be shut down.
It seems that the iPhone has brought a whole bunch of sick ppl with it that have nothing better to do then post sh*t and talk over and over about the same sh*t.

Thank you, this forum is moderated in the way we think it should be, we won't disallow someone to tell people his/her opinion or thoughts. Whatever if someone wants to run a pool on a certain topic, he/she is free to do so. A pool and a topic are still in the area which can be tolerated. More topics will be merged as usale. But still, it's not your decission how we work here.

Oh another IFSF scam thread we havnt had one of these this.. hour!
give it a rest ffs
The point here is about amateurish reporting enabling fraud, not about the fraud itself. It really is about how we feel about Eng & CNN
Am not going to go in a discussion with someone who thinks he owns the world and is barely 18.
