This is email that i received from Scrapebox Support:
can anyone else confirm this happening to them
Yea, I faced the same problem while transfering to another Berman Hosting VPS. It was saying No valid license found even after successfully transfer. Got this mail and was fixed. Its really bad if Berman Hosting is doing that. So always make sure you transfer your license before moving
I suspect what Berman hosting are actually doing is creating all new VPS from the same snapshot and not purposely cloning machines with valid licenses.
This means the all can have the same hardware ID, and therefor means that any license activated to that hardware ID will work on any VPS using it.
looks like a promotional video
and yes sys ID is the problem here.
Just checked the video. Like you said, it's nothing more than a promotional video with someone trying to plug their affiliate ID (checked the TinyURL preview).
I'm not trying to stick up for either side, I'm just saying that I don't think Berman hosting is purposely deceiving people and "stealing" their licenses.
Deleted video url, its not a promotional video...
I actually wasn't accusing you of promoting anything. What I was trying to say is the video you linked (that Scrapebox support sent you) appears to be nothing more than a promotional video made by someone trying to get people to click his affiliate link and he's very vague about whether you get a license or not.
I've personally used Berman hosting myself on two separate occasions and neither time did Scrapebox come pre-installed or did I get an activated license when I downloaded it.
This is just my opinion, and I might be wrong, but I'd say that it's just a case of the way Berman provision machines being incompatible with the way Scrapebox verify licenses.
Time to give justice about thread title.
Ive had the licence problem with bermanhosting as well. The sbprep.exe fixed it for me.
Thats pretty shitty if there really doing this to their customers. Ive noticed over the last week that there has been people all over the net offering xrumer latest version plus a keygen, Im assumed its gotta be some vmware crap, but maybe this is where the source is coming from. Ill reserve judgement until we get more details. Id like to see bermanhosting comment on this to maybe shed some light on it. Maybe it was some of there servers getting hacked? Is it only scrapebox being stolen or is it other software as well?
I want to see what Bermanhosting have to say too!
I had a similar case with a vps that I've tested some time ago. It wasn't Berman. Bought a fresh vps, ran SB and it Automatically was activated with another account.
I think it's because vps hosts use the same clean vm image to rebuilt a machine. Nothing wrong with that. It's your job to manage your licenses.
