Warning for Scam Shops !

Last years we have seen a lot of new shops arriving. Most of them have a poor layout and try to make a few quick bucks with profile sales. None of them come even close to the product range and customer service we offer. 

How to recognize scam shops:

  • Poor layout and strange looking (free) domains like Google domains, blog domains etc.
  • No FAQ/Customer information, No location or Address from the seller, No refund policy etc. 
  • Very low & unrealistic prices, compared to reliable other websites offering the same kind product. 
  • Copy and pasting information/text from other Profile Shops to create there own website.
  • Offering cracked and hacked licenses if you buy a profile, or free profiles if you buy hacked/cracked software.
  • Offering a Profile Pack subscription for unrealistic small amount (they download free profiles from internet to create a huge pack so it looks like you get much for low, but most of times these profiles are outdated or they change old version numbers to new version etc.

  • Most of these scam shop are located in: Russia, Poland, Latvia, Albania, Bosnia, Bulgaria, Macedonia, Romania, Servia, Slovenia, or other Balkan countries etc.
