Advance Telecom Inc Internet Scam

I paid for a VIP membership to itunes on Christmas because I was trying to set up an account with them. I paid $35.01 for it & received nothing as well. No one seems to know how to get a hold of them. I had a phone number on my paypal receipt:

[protected]

I had a difficult time getting through to someone. I had to call back 4 times before I talked to someone. The automated system said agents were available 24/7 and kept telling me to leave a message, once it hung up on me.

After searching for information I founds a mobile phone company in Pakistan with that name.

But as far as I can tell the Web site does not reflect the "company" I paid...

The e-mail address included in my receipt was:

[protected]@unlimited.com

which took me to a purchase agreement for that company. The company was a grill and stove store, and this was not the "company" I paid either...

Advance Telecom Inc Took the money but did'nt deliver the download.

Looks like I have been duped in the same way way your previous complainants have. I googled "Google Earth" to obtain free download but was also offered 3 years upgrade to "Google Earth Plus", after being directed to Advance Telecom Inc site via Google. I paid $20.55 through Paypal on 23rd Dec, but needless to say, I did not receive any software download nor have I had any luck in contacting Advance Telecom Inc since.
If only I had come across your website sooner I could have been forewarned. I do not expect to see my money again however I hope the sheer number of complaints made will eventually help to close down this website.
I do not understand how these scammers have been allowed to operate for so long ( at least 9 months going by your list of complaints ) without anyone being able to do anything about it.
I do not think that that Google or Paypal come out of this with any credit however I can only blame myself for being so naive and trusting.

Advance Telecom Inc Unauthorized billing

Advance Telecom Inc. portrays to be google earth among many other shareware (freeware) software sites they charged me $68.74 for a 3yr membership and is charging many, many other consumers millions of dollars for something that they can get for nothing. The Government should step in and do something cause I believe they have the technology to track them down and have them pay (jail time) and return all the money that they ripped off from us folks I believe are victims all around the world.

I paid for 3 years VIP membership for Softwaer Nero burnin 8 (US$66.74) through paypal... I assumed a Cd was going to be sent as I asked for it to be delivered 6to me. After 3 weeks nothing arrived so I sent an email to sales@ulimited.com asking where my CD was. All I keep getting back is an automated response saying where to download the software. Beware of that scam!

Advance Telecom Inc Fraud and cheating

It was represented by Advance Telecom, Inc. that I was buying Nero 8, the download and 1-year update subscription, and download registry repair. After the PayPal checkout and clicking 'return to download'. The screen went blank. I entered several messages to the e-mail address in PayPal and was sent a bogus URL. When in the Windows Update website, I put in the URL and received an expired Demo version of Nero 8. I e-mailed the company to no avail. I put in a claim with PayPal and was sent the bogus URL for Nero 8 again, then a generic DVD/CD burner. After a couple more responses from me that I 'purchased Nero 8 and expect Nero 8' I received notice from PayPal that a refund was issued and on temporary hold until the funds clear. Hopefully that means a real refund and not more run-around. But it looks like they took my PayPal complaint seriously and I am not out $40. Perhaps they are trying to clear their name? Whew!

I too now see that I was scammed by this bunch of goobers. Same M/O, $35.01 charge on the screen for 3 yr VIP membership (with upgrades) for the" AVAST HOME" antivirus software download. No download instructions provided or available. No email response and that site also locked up my computer during this time as well. I'm just now disputing the charge thru my bank.

A friend of mine had a similar problem. He had problems with viruses and tried to download ZoneAlarm and ended up paying Advanced Telecom for software that did nothing. Same phone situation [protected] and answered somewhere in the middle east. I'm guessing since his computer was already infected he's being redirected to a phony website regardless what software he was trying to download. The pages looks convincing, but, not the same. Very clever scam which I believe is a part of a virus or spyware attack.

Paid Advance Telecom, Inc. $35.01 for 3 yr VIP membership (with upgrades). No download instructions provided. Found out this company is a scam. Called the number I had [protected] and got some guy in Pakistan (I think). He says funds will be refunded. Will wait and see.

Advance Telecom Inc Adobe PDF 2009

Advance Telecom Inc ripped me off using Google Earth 4.3 as the bait and sucked me in to purchasing a 3 Year membership which included "unlimited software download & support". They make it seem as if they are selling a subscription to Google Earth Plus when in actuality they are not providing anything which is not available free of charge from Google. Indeed, they never even provided me with a link to download Google Earth 4.3. They use a video created by Google to demonstrate the capabilities of Google Earth 4.3; but then, when you click on the link to download that program, you are taken to their order page which lists their "membership" choices. I have lodged a complaint with Paypal (and await the outcome) and suggest that everyone who uses Paypal to buy anything through these people file a complaint also.

On 24/05/08 I was tricked into buying a 'membership' to members-site.net, apparently run by Advance Telecom Inc. for US$68.74. As they worked through PayPal I supposed they were bona fide. But the only thing they seem to provide is "freeware" downloadable for free anywhere. I think this is a ripoff.

I was scammed big time by this Advance Telecom Inc!
Total RIPOFF! And, I will be calling PayPal about it also. According to a company called Advanced Telecom, Inc (NOT ADVANCE (note: not a D on the end of the scam company), who actually is a real, legit telecommunications company...

they have received in the neighborhood of between 250 and 300 calls over the past year on this "Advance Telecom, Inc" scam company. They are tired of the calls to them as well, I am sure. If Paypal does not resolve this issue with this company and pay people back their money upon doing so, they will suffer in the end. In fact, I encourage each and all of you who posted on here and who are reading this NOW... contact Paypal and let em know what you think, and more importantly, NEVER do business with crooked Paypal either, UNLESS they credit our money back and hunt down the real scammer in all of this. I am done for good with Paypal, and will warn against them now after praising them early on to others I know.

I was just scammed by Advance Telecom Inc.. I ordered Roxio and didn't get it. They got me through PayPal as well. The download I put on my computer after purchase was not Roxio (although you couldn't tell until AFTER it was already installed) and doesn't work. I was told there would free support and updates, etc. for 2 years and all you get is an online customer support link which I know will not answer my questions. Even reading the wording on the thing that WAS installed, I could tell it wasn't created by anyone who could speak English. I am ticked off. Making a complaint to PaayPal. I don't know how I was redirected to order this to this company since I went on the Roxio site to purchase. Needless to say I am NOT happy about this turn of events.

Advance Telecom Inc Scam!

My computer error messaged me that it could not find Macromedia Flash. I googled and located Advance Telecom Inc. as a provider for this software. I paid $49.90 USD as payment for this software. All that I received in return was an acknowledgment by e-mail that my payment was processed. I received no instructions for downloading or installation.

I believe that I have been duped by an internet scam.

Advance Telecom offered 8.5 AVG Virus Detection program and required payment of $69.14 then sent via e-mail a web site address for download that would not work, I called the customer support listed on the download page and was given an alternate web address that also did not work. Have been unable to obtain the program I paid for. Beware of this company I do not believe they are legitimate.

I was looking for Spybot Search and Destroy, which is free, on the Internet. I clicked on this item, and I saw a price of $11.

I was puzzled, clicked that I wanted one...was charged an unauthorized charge of fifty dollars. Was angry as hell. Call customer service number. This is a scam by Advance Telecom, ripping off the name of Spybot Search and Destroy, which is freeware, and donations are optional.

Tried to open this software...didn't even work. This company should be put out of business and the owners put in jail.

In 2008 my son bought 1 time ring tone. He never recieved the tone and the company has been charging my account 19.99 per month since 2008. I have tried to cancel this transaction with my bank to put a stop payment on that dollar amount, then telecom will change the dollar amount by 1 penny. We have had numberous calls and research and we have not been able to locate this scam. This company is ripping people off.
