Pirate Access / Fraud and cheating company!

1 United States Review updated:
Contact information:

I was looking for a particular program for download, and when I google searched it, this is the only site that came up with a listing for said program. I thought well since this is a pay-for-info site, it may well be that only they have it. After selecting the file I wanted to download, I was taken to a sign up page. I decided to sign up, and went through the process. Only once I was finished entering my info, without given the option to check what I've ordered, I noted that I had to pay an EXTRA 14.88 $ USD, for a service I was not even aware of. This is over and above the 23.76 $ USD that I had to for out for the 2 Year Full & Unlimited Access Option I had chosen.

That I could still live with, but when I then wanted to proceed with logging in, i was taken to a different sign up page every time. Yet another page with options on how to pay. Never once was there even displayed that maybe I had the wrong username and password. It feels as if the submit button was just designed to take you to a set page, instead of an internal system.

Upon further investigation, I noted that you cannot even go to a contact us, or webmaster page, as these just reroute you to the sign-up page. There are also no contact details, so you can't reach these people in any way.

I am highly disappointed in myself, for having fallen for such a scam. I urge others not to. The front page may well look very professional and legitimate, but I can fully assure you, that's all it is: A FRONT!

    This company advertises that you have access to various files but when you try to download the files they are not available. They are out and out liars and have not refunded my money or responded in any way. This is truly a disreputable company.

    Pirate Access - Fraud
    pirate access
    Tasmania
    Australia
    www.pirate access.com

    If you want REAL proof pirate access.com is a scam, search their site for some thing like your own name, or some gobble-di-gook of meaningless characters ... anything you like, and hey presto, they will list a number of downloads for it, including an ISO!! Also, check their website again tomorrow, and it will still be the last day of their special discounted lifetime membership offer, just like it was yesterday and the day before, and the day before that, and the ... you get the idea. Hope this helps newbies and the more trusting types of you people out there, some idea of the sort of things to take notice of to help protect your selves.

    this company will say it has the software to download, but when you sign up and pay the price it doesn't! Don't try contacting them because you will have a greater chance of seeing santa clause today, than and contact info.

    Just to concur with the comments on PIRATE ACCESS - a complete scam. Watch out also for SHARING ZONE - I think that they are the same scammers as Pirate Access. Any filesharing website that asks you to pay a reisteration fee using a Adult Porn Site has to questionable, at the very least, and, most likely a total scam -
    (1) you pay your money (which is usally considerable more than the couple of dollars they initially display)
    (2) you get issued with account username + password
    (3) you then try to log on but it won't accept your account details
    (4) it proptms you to re-join
    (5) you are frequently being automatically transferred to different websites making the whole experience very confusing - presumably this is to make you think that maybe you have made some mistake in creating your first account and that yoiu need to create a new account
    (6) you will find that there is no way of accessing any support via phone or email
    (7) it seems to be impossible to get your money refunded and you have the concern that they might debit your VISA some time in the future to "renew your memebership"
    STAY AWAY FROM PIRATE ACCESS and SHARING ZONE - they are a TOTAL SCAM!!!
