software fraud

Website clearly lists a software package that will unlock the 3.1 version of the iPhone firmware...I made my purchase in "good faith"
and afterwards, the link to the downloads, states that the 3.1 version of the software will be posted later...and to "check back OFTEN"...
My blood is boiling...This was dishonest advertising and I am filing a FTC complaint for deceptive advertising...no response to customer
service contact emails that I've sent...what a surprise?..When they purport to sell you the product that you want, and then reveal, "after the fact" and
after your money is paid thru PayPal, that they don't have the version of the product that they list on the front end of the website, then its just wrong...
I will be filing a dispute with PayPal too...After investigating the number of complaints that this company has, PayPal should cease and desist from doing
business with them...if they continue, that makes PayPal complicit in the perpertration of the fraud...

    SWREG is part of DIGITAL RIVER, an elaborate e-commerce scam. SWREG takes payments for iphone unlock software that they claim can unlock your iphone in minutes. The truth is, there is no iphone unlock software for amartures. Even your neighborhood cellphone unlockers can tell you that. Unlocking an iphone involves a complex trial and error process, it needs brains of a patient expert. most of this online software peddlers upload the widely available software from blackrain.com and sell it as they own. The software is more likey to corrupt your phone 90% at best. Dont waste your money buying anything from this companies that claim to offer 100% money back guarantee and operate under different urls. The claim 24/7 technical support. Trust me, you wont hear anything back from them after they take your money. If you insist on a refund, they just delete your account access to their so called "members area", and then you cannotr be able to "bother" them no more. PAYPAL is complicit in this scam, even after numerous complait, they cannot reverse the charges. BBB ( the better business buereau) too is complicit in these. They give DIGITAL RIVER a rating of A+ while giving SWREG an F, and then claim that SWREG is shut down and that they are unable to contact them. when they infact know the two companies are one and the same, even the SWREG website boasts that it is part of DIGITAL RIVER, and DIGITAL RIVER claims in their website that they acquired SWREG. If you call DIGITAL RIVER they will insist that they insist that they are not affiliated with SWREG anymore. Their address is listed the same for the two companies. long story short. THERE IS NOTHING LIKE AN IPHONE UNLOCK SOFTWARE. If your local cell unlockers cannot do it for you while you wait and they are the experts, who are you to donload a $19 software that clims to offer you unlimitted iphone unlocks. Notorius companies include www.appleunlocker.com, www.iphonekeys.com all these sites are operated by the same people that you will never be able to find their telephone number or email address. They just have a contact us page that you post your rants and then they go to a black hole. Dont be a victim! I have been scammed by them!

    well i bought it 10 days ago for iPhone4, where it says it will unlock version 4.2.1, when i download it, it then says choose phone generation and version & i did, and then the instructions say it will upgrade the phone to version 4.2.1 which is the same version as the phone. so now it the file sits in my downloads bin is i contemplate this. it makes no sense. i'm too eager, and i can be messed up because of that, so i chilling until it comes out form the Dev team and such. $30 down the drain, but it's better than loosing the $700 i paid for the phone. I really want this phone unlocked. By the way, the home page :http://www.unlockiphone4.org/index.html, looks nothing like the installation pages, which are much cheaper looking & unprofessional (just white page & black text). But is it anyway possible that since this complaint is from 2009 things have changed. However you wrote your complaint 3days from now. Patience.

    I made a purchase from a SWREG business, http://www.htcsimunlock.com/, paid the money didn't get the code, didn't get the refund.

    I spoke to a few customer service people at SWREG and Digital River, my purchase number was recognised by all. All the staff I spoke to are powerless.

    If you are having problems, and if you are prepared to be nice call Linda, she is a senior receptionist at Digital River which is the main company and has all the emails and contacts you would need. I got to her by accident on 9522531234, she was very helpful, understanding and put me through to a senior manager and gave me an email of a someone relevant and important if I got nowhere. Because I had already opened a dispute in PayPal the money was held, that is not in Digital River hands, the senior manager told me she was not able to make the refund. So rather than get into a stink with her I decided to wait it out to see if I got a refund through PayPal.

    Fortunately I managed to get a refund through PayPal because SWREG didn't make a comment during the dispute (one is not covered for digital purchases in PayPal, unless the seller doesn't comment in a dispute, this is a very small loop hole one shouldn't rely on). So I didn't need to go back to Linda or email the important person.

    Feel free to share my experience.

Bad Software & Unauthorized Charges

SWREG Inc. sent me a software program for me to install on my Itunes and the program never installed and once I Synced my Iphone it whipped out the phone. Also, the company charged my account $30.66 for the software that they never sent. I want my money back and my Iphone 3GS replaced. I tried to contact the company and it's like they don't even exist. PLEASE HELP!!! I have a bogus receipt they gave me...

It's a scam

SWREg.org seems to involved with all kinds of scam sites. I tried iphoneunlocking.com - it's definitely a scam and will never see my money again

    I paid money and got the QuickPwn software which is already free on the net, and doesn't support 3.1.2 software as advertised. I have not heard back since I asked for a refund. Needless to say I am out of pocket and still have a locked iPhone.

    This website is a complete SCAM. When you pay for the software to jailbreak/unlock your iPhone you will not hear from them again. Unfortunately I got caught out by these crooks but I’m going to every website that advertise for this company and I’m writing bad reveiws. I don’t want anybody else to get ripped off like I did. They advertise 24/7 365 days a year support. I’ve tried phoning, emailing and using their “Live Chat” but I’m yet to speak to anyone. The customer reviews on their website are also fake. How can all the reviews give 5 stars out of 5? No company is perfect! iPhoneunlocking.com are SCAMMERS – PLEASE DO NOT PAY ANYTHING TO THESE CROOKS. Don’t get caught out like I did. I had to cancel my bank card just in case they tried to take more cash from my account. PLEASE DON’T DO IT!!

    the site advertised that they have a unlock solution for iphone 4.1 firmware. after i payed the membership fee, the program i downloaded from the site was limera1n which does not unlock the iphone, the unlock solution posted is the repo666.untrasn0w source for cydia, both which can be found free online. i contacted customer service via email for a refund for false advertising, i still haven't heard from them. This site is a scam.

    ATT: rlanneau: When you made your purchase, did you get an email from a company called SWREG? If you did you need to email them and complain and insist that you get a refund. It took me over a month of complaints to get mine. In the end I had to resort to short and sweet emails to them and I was also quite rude in the end. I don't usually get rude but I had had enough of being messed around. I called them a horrible word for a ladies private parts and all of a sudden I was refunded. I was surprised but at least I got my money back. Good luck, I hope you get yours back too!

This collection of companies are charging fradulent bills to my credit card. After hours of using the useless customer service numbers I gave up. Now I have to cancel my credit card to stop the charges. They are associated with many many other fradulent companies all working together to bilk customes Just check out the addresses listed at both Minn and Calf in google maps.
They are doing this in Europ too. Why is this company allowed to continue doing this!
Please contact your state attorneys office. A number that does work if you want to bug them is from their order company (in the same building no less) [protected]

If you were charged while uisng a ligitmate vendor call the vendor and threaten to sue them fro working with these scammers.

    Due to previous terrible/no service from SWREG I recently had a chance to tell a new sales provider that I will not be doing business with them as long as SWREG is the funds processor. To bad for the seller, but I will not allow SWREG to handle any of my sales transactions. This is a shameful American company and needs to be put out of business. They cannot be trusted to respond to your inquiries or intervene if the seller should happen to be a scammer or won't honor their guarantees. SWREG takes their cut and leaves you out to dry when you need their help, when trying to recover your stolen funds, from their scammer clients.

wrongful charges to my credit card

I have now received two unknown charges to my credit card which I did not authorize and I do not know what this is for or regarding. I am very frustrated to see this. This is obviously a constant complaint for this company. Someone needs to do something about this.

Complicate in Fraud

This Internet criminal Sebastian Foss uses SWREG.com to process the funds for his Internet scam schemes. Why does SWREG.com continue to facilitate these Internet crimes? It's plain and simple SWREG is profiting from their scamster clients and taking their cut at our expense. SWREG.com represents the worst of of the Internet business community and needs to be investigated as a party to FRAUD on a grand scale. SWREG.com is a REPRENSIBLE SCAM FACILITATOR that cannot be trusted to process your/our funds for any business transaction. Join me in BOYCOTTING SWREG.com. You can send them an email or open a ticket but do not expect the courtesy of a reply. BOYCOTT SWREG.com is the answer. Sebastian Foss + SWREG.com = ###, shameful, FRAUDULENT CRIMINALS. Bababooy to U All. Did I mention how much I hate SWREG, com

disappearing Website

This "organisation" is apparently affiliated with ultimateonlinejobs.com. They charge a membership fee...


I have purchased this software from a data entry program. I found the website SWREG through my career builder network. The fact that this company is not providing a number or customer service line is rediculous. I have been searching all over for their number and cannot find one. I have sent numerous e-mails to them, and in return they sent ONE back to me claiming that they would refund my money. They said it would take 4-6 business days due to their "connection" problems. It has now been two weeks. How can I get my money back? More importantly how can we stop this kind of thing from happening to others? PEOPLE BEWARE OF SENDING CREDIT CARD INFO VIA THE INTERNET. IT IS NOT SAFE!

I checked out the names and companies they provided and found them to be a SCAM. I have been trying to get my money back to no avail. Something need to be done with this company. Honest people are victims here and to all you are reading this beware of Work @ Home Jobs majority of them are listed thru SWREG. Just once I would love to see the Attorney General Investigate this and prosecute to the fullest.

    Hi Sandy,
    I too did the same thing that you did when I thought I could make some money on the side. When I tried to get a refund, I got nowhere after repeated e-mails and a promise of a refund between 4-6 business days. Finally, I wrote another e-mail through one of their web-sites that was advertising how "genuine" they were, and guess what? I got my refund within the week!
    Please try to write to them with your order number at: [email protected]

    Good Luck.

SWREG Complicit Party To Fraud

Jessy, Fortunately VISA was able to assist me in getting my refund from one of your scamster clients. No thanks to SWREG who is more than happy to process the funds and take their cut from their fraudulent customers illegal scams. You people will not answer the pleas for your help through your ticket system. My tickets were ignored and it appears SWREG routinely ignores others tickets also. Just take a look at this thread and you will see that others have had the same problem. In my opinion SWREG cannot be trusted to be a party to any transaction because they accept money from criminals and will not lift a finger to help the victims of their clients crimes. SHAMEFUL American company. SWREG needs to be investigated under the organized crime laws as being a mass facilitator of FRAUD.

    I totally agree. I fell for that iphoneunlock scam which I believed was legitimate because SWREG states in their home page they investigate all their vendors before taking them on. Only after I found out that the website for iphoneunlock was a fraud (which SWREG collected my honest money) did I read that this is a known issue and SWREG does not pull this fraudulent site from their endorsement. I emailed SWREG 7 times with no attempt on their part to contact me or acknowledge fraud. Finally, I went through my credit card company which resolved the issue. STAY AWAY FROM SWREG as they are after your money regardless of whether a vendor is honest or fraud.

    I have done everything I know to try to stop this, but I can't prevent it from linking up automatically if my internet connection is on. I haven't gone to this site previously as far as I am aware, and I have not ordered anything from them.

    I think I will have to reinstall IE to get this to stop. Beware of this group, whoever they are!

    I just went through the same problem with these people. I had recieved an email telling me to enter this coupon code and I can get this digital product free. I only filled out my name, adress and email no banking info at all. when it still read that it was $97.00 I just closed off of it. a couple days letter I have this pending charge on my account. They also sent me a reciept as if I bought it. The reciept shows the last 4 digits of my visa number. I am pretty sure that one of the online venders i used in tthe past probably used Digital river as its Credit card proccessor. Aperantly they keep reccords of your account number and can use it pretty much at will.
    The vendor may in fact be very legit and has no idea that this company is doing this to thier customers so not only did i file a complaint with my banks fraud dept. I also contacted DRI (via email, they give no number on thier site) and I also contacted the vendor that was listed on the reciept and let them know not only what happened but the fact that google has pages of people screaming they been ripped off by them.
    I am hoping that they get a bad enough rep. That the vendors will go back to paypal and quit using this company. My next will be to contact the BBB and then file a complaint with the attourny general. If they get enough complaints they will have to take legal action agianst them so I suggest that everyone that has had problems with them do the same thing!

    I contacted you by phone last month when you took an unauthorized payment of $29.95 out of my checking account, and was told that you would immediately cancel the subscription. Yesterday, you took another unauthorized payment of $29.95 out of my checking account. You're really lucky that I live in Tx. now instead of Minnesota, because I would be there ready to wring someone's neck for this unauthorized action once again!!! Once I find your phone number again, I pity the fool that takes my call, because it won't be one you will soon forget!!! As a matter of fact, it will be one of the best recorded customer service calls, that you can use to teach the furture idiots you hire, about how to handle an extremely irate gentleman, who promises to make the reps ears burn, and they will probably have no self esteem when I am done chewing there ### out up one side and down the other for their complete incompetence, and I hope it get's to the highest level of your LOW LEVEL MANANGMENT!!!
