Software Sold Online

How the scam works:

If you are buying software or programs from sellers other than the official distributors, chances are you will get either: a virus, key-logger (software which records whatever you are typing on your keyboard), a fake version, or even an auto-calling software.

The latter is extremely dangerous if you have your computer connected to the phone. The software is programmed to call hot-line numbers automatically, racking your phone bill to thousands of dollars, which goes into the scammers’ pockets.

Sometimes, whatever you are buying needs a serial number that you’ll never receive – so if you are considering purchasing software from places other than the official ones, don’t be surprised if you lose your money (or maybe your credit card access).

How to avoid:

It's easy. Only purchase software from accredited distributors, if you don't want to have any surprises.

  1. Never use Kangaroo DVDs! I Have not yet received my order for dvds despite waiting for many weeks and have not received any response back from the company. I just want my money back and enough of this hassle

  2. Recently I bought the software at, to be able to call online very cheaply. I paid for it, but the software doesn’t work. They did not do much to try to make it work, and after 3-4 days of trying, I asked for a refund. They refused. What a ripoff!
    On top of this, Paypal refuses to refund my money. They have their downside too, Paypal.
