    This is just GREAT...

    I tried to apply what I've learned, finally took some initiative.

    So I get up there and buy a program.

    -"We're sorry sir, but our bank is having troubles receiving your payment, please allow 24h..etc"

    Kaay. Sure, why not.

    *24hours later*

    So guys, your little bank problem solved?

    -"Errr...Check this:*links to forum*

    Hmmm, iVerified a scam?
    Oh well it's ok. I keep my cool.
    What about you give me the code I need, I'll make some money with your program and then give you the earnings. Because I'm broke now I invested in your program. And hey, I'll even promote your program too, because I know that this will lead to a free copy.
    Whadaya say, buddy?

    -"Unfortunately, we didn't receive the monies so we're not obliged to give you the code. But we changed to another monies processor recently so you can just pay again! WOO!"

    .....

    FFFFFFUUUU-


    And now I'm still broke. <.<

    Kk, that was my story. What I basically wanted to tell; iVerified = a SCAM. Stay away from it.

    Taking action =/= buying some program. Its not the program that makes you money but the action. There are tons of methods where you don't need a program for. Only buy a program when you have done something manually, seen that it works and brings in money and know the program will be defnitely worth its money in return

    Yaa but I was soo eager to do it with that specific method needing that specific program. :(

    But basically any method needs SOME investment right? Like..buying a domain for a squeeze page or something. Right?

    Can always go with a free blog / free website. A lot of methods need some sort of investment but a lot you can do without. Like bummarketing.

    Ok update on this one:

    I persuaded them! XD
    I told them that I'd reveal them to black hat communities (potential customers!) and now I'll be getting a 'free' code when the new version comes out..as a volunteer to test it.
    Better then nothing lol. Hooray for initiative!

    bro you should still do a charge back. Whose to say that they will make a new verison honestly bro. They could be just saying that and keep you in an endless loop. Do a charge back bro and get your money back

    Excellent advise. I wouldn't trust them any further that I could through them. After all how far can you through an email ?

    Alright thanks a lot!

    I opened one, but says here they're going to contact the scammer himself...And I don't think he's prone to react any time soon...

    Hopefully paypal will take a look and give me the monies back. <.<

    Of course they are going to contact him as they don't know which of you actually is in the wrong at this point and if PayPal just did refunds at every single request then no one would have any stability in using them. Good Luck on getting your money back. It sucks when you get scammed.

    software only automates, try manual work, pretty much anything in the downloads section is possible with only free/cracked versions online.
