Beware of Anyphoneunlock - Iphone 4 Unlock

On 26-Feb-2011 I had googled about websites that provide an unlock for an Iphone 4 that is locked to an AT&T network US (Ios 4.2.1 & BB 03.10.01). This is how I came across Mod Note: I removed the link to the site pending further clarification. ~Bubbles

On 26-Feb-2011 I went to the website and mail them about my requirements. To which I immediately got a response with a confirmation over an email. So I went ahead and bought a package worth GBP 39.99, that will provide me with an unlock code on 27-Feb-2011. I bought it with the help of my credit card and the transaction went through Nochex.

Immediately I got the membership to that website. According to the package they were supposed to provide me with an unlock code within a time frame of 1 week. I wrote them an email on 01-Mar-2011 and received a confirmation from them stating that they are still working on it and will take a week as per the suggested timing to provide me with a code.

Since there was no email from them about the unlock code even after the specified time, so I asked them for a refund. I have written close to 6-7 email about this issue as well as logged in a query in their support database. However there has been no response.

This is why I need your help to punish such scammers. Although I have lost my money, however with your help we can control such fraudulent websites.

Welcome to ScamWarners montiey. Please post up the email and headers to the email message you got.

We have no way to determine if this is a scam. The types of scams we deal with are scams that are sent to email addresses with no action from the recipient.

You contacted this company, they did not send you an email which prompted you to contact them from what you have written. Please provide more proof that this is the type of scam we deal with. See this thread for more detailed information. viewtopic.php?f=3&t=5

I would recommend going to your credit card company and ask them to recall the funds.

This is not a coordinated attack, the site anyphoneunlock.net is a SCAM, I also buy an iphone unlock for my iphone 4 and after waiting for over 2 weeks I have not received any unlock. I live in Mexico.

I also pay thru nochex, what is strange about this is that I try to sent a report to nochex using their support ticket form and I got an error.

This is not the kind of activity we deal with, so I am locking this topic and will lock any further discussion of this site as it does not fit our stated purposes.

Look here to see what ScamWarners does: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=3561
The first sentence says this:
If you think you've been contacted by a scammer, this is the right place to ask for help. The more you can tell us about the email or contact you've had, the better we can assist.

All who have posted about this situation contacted the site, it did not come to them. None of the posters have replied to requests for copies of email or headers.

Two posts about this site were almost word for word identical. I am not defending the site. I am stating why it looked like a coordinated attack.

And here to see what you might be able to do: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=15
The first sentence of this announcement says
There are a million and one scams out there, and we don't claim to be experts in advising about them all. The ones we do consider ourselves qualified to talk about are listed in our specific scams section


Done
