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...

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.

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!

Virus programme

I have the same problem with the other complainants with Advance Telecom. I paid $44.96, purportedly for a 3 year membership for a on-line virus scanner and an accelerator but didn't receive the product. I wrote to ask for a refund but didn't hear back from them. Below are the transaction details:

Transaction ID: 9D7612859G058425P
Item Price: $44.96 USD
Total: $44.96 USD
Order Description: 3 Year VIP Membership and 1 Extra Feature(s)
Item/Product Number: 1

    I'm in Ohio, USA. Thought I was getting SpyBot Search and Destroy antispyware. Got some sign-up page that looked legit. I thought this software was free, but I was in a hurry. 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 1-866-998-0515 and got some guy in Pakistan (I think). He says funds will be refunded. Will wait and see.

    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 866-998-0515 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.

    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. Some folks need to go to jail for this scam!
    I'm in GA.

Ripoff for &free& pdf reader software

On Sept 23, 2008 I was tricked by Advance Telecom into purchasing "free" pdf reader software. I was led into purchasing i year membership (or else there was no way of reaching the download site). This company masks itself under Adobe's name: AdobeAcrobat.Official-2008.com. I have tried unsuccessfully to retrieve my money.

    I purchased Adobe Flash player from Advance Telecom, Inc. through Pay Pal and was ripped off $49.96. I contacted Pay Pal and they will not do anything about it.
