I was attempting to buy my very first purchase on itunes. I was directed to the company MBCONTACT.COM which...
BEWARE - THERE ARE NO UNLIMITED SUBSCRIPTIONS TO ITUNES - anything else is a scam!!!
wanting to download some TV and movies from i tunes for a trip and never having done this, i googled itunes downloads. I ended up with 3 yr unlimited access VIP membership for itunes - which seemed to be a great deal for $59.86 Trying to access the site they then email you with password etc... i realized nothing was working. Upon calling Itunes to find out how this should work, I was informed that MBConacts has NO affiliation with itunes and there are no unlimited subscriptions - it doesn't exist.
My alarm bells went off and i googled MBCONTACTS to find a slew of other unhappy troupers who had been scammed by them and fell into the same trap. After disputing the charge and confronting them via tel and via email. I have received confirmation from MBContact that the subscription has been canceled and the money will be refunded! I hope it will otherwsie this will be a further scam of theirs and i will not rest!
Started by getting charges on my VISA credit card and I have contacted the credit card company. My VISA account has been credited but they continue making charges to the same account.
My son went onto the site thinking it was legit, used my credit card without my knowledge, I found him doing it, canceled the transaction and to my surprise I got a bill the next day deducting the amount, I have tried with several emails to get them to cancel before it went through, alas to no avail, I though right they've finally took the money, I might as well let my son use the 3 year membership and the products, being itunes, nothing, he or I can't get nothing from this website, these people are parasites, they are destroying whatever there is good about buying online, and something must be done to stop them, surely it is illegal what they are doing, anyway I am 33 pounds out of pocket, but I'm hioping what comes around goes around and may these people rot in hell for what they are doing, thats how strongly I feel about this...thank you for letting me vent a bit
After alot of research I found out that MBContact.com is a accounting firm that has been hired by as many as 600 web sites that are either on the level or scam companies. I typed in I Tunes.com and was re-directed to what I thought was I tunes to down load music. I had bought tree years of music finding out that that was not true. I called right away to get a refund and contacted I Tunes and reported at least the company that takes the money out of banks for the real scamers. I Tunes said that when your browser takes you to other web-sites that means you have what they call a WEB-BROWSER HI-JACKER VIRUS. MBCONTACT.COM said that they would refund the money with no problem. I contacted my bank and they said they were going to cansel my VISA as it has now been compromised and the scam companies store them in there data base and use them at a later date. So canceling your card payment must be permenant. George A Romero
This company is spoofing Google Earth and selling the software that is available free on Google's site. I believed that I was purchasing a copy of the Google Earth Plus software, and the company charged $68 to my card. But their download area only offers the free version of Google Earth. There is no trace of my order with Google, and they are not an authorized vendor. You will be able to tell that you have been redirected to a spoof site because their sales site goes under the name MBContact.com. They have a fake download and members area. It is a good looking scam... but a scam nonetheless. Research indicates that they come from the UAE.
I wish to report the activities of mbcontact, and their quasi-download sites of legitimate software. Last night I fell for their ‘2008search-destroy’ scam on Spybot software, costing me £17.91 GBP. Apparently they are busy using everything from Google Earth, Grisoft AVG, Spybot and many other legitimate company logos to hook people in. My bank has absolutely no interest in pursuing this matter as a fraud, and neither can the UK police do much either. I have reported this to the FBI site IC3, who will action this report of fraud.
Whilst no company seems too worried about their identity being misused, mbcontact.com will continue to generate millions of dollars from their reputations. I am very interested in what they are doing as a victims of this crime in proactively dealing with these scammers. I am intent on taking the following action:
I will purchase the domain name ‘www.mbcontact-fraudsters.com’ with the sole aim of making a website alerting the dangers of this criminal outfit. It will include a bulletin board giving warnings and details of their latest scams. One section will deal with how companies and banks respond to dealing with mbcontacts activities, and what steps (or lack of) they are taking to bring the guilty parties to justice.
The site will strive to identify the people and their home addresses, photos etc. behind this scam. A Paypal account will be set up for people to donate to a fund so that a bounty can be offered on their capture and prosecution. My point is if no organisation will do anything about this situation, then individuals must take control of the internet.

Advertised a download and membership to itunes. There is no such "membership, and the download "itunes 8.1" was never downloaded onto my computer. There is no such download. I called them and they were very abrupt and rude, said they would refund my $29.88. I put a dispute on my credit card. They would not let me speak to a supervisor. I also told them about this website and that there are a lot of complaints about this same thing.
