    Hello all i have an iPhone 4 32 gb locked to softbank Japan. So i ordered a factory unlock on officialiphoneunlock.co.uk for 130$. They says that it will be done in 5 - 15 days. I ordered it on 17th of march 2014. Please tell me is it spam, fake or fraudlent site and what can i do now to get my money back. :(:(:confused:

    Dispute the charge with your credit company.
    Did you try contacting them?

    Here are two threads about this site, discussing that it is a scam.

    Call your bank and tell them the situation, that's the only way you could get your money back.

    Otherwise, it's 100% a scam and your money is gone.

    Call your bank or CC company. Tell them you bought something on a scam site, and see if they can stop the purchase.

    Not sure. I wouldn't count on it, but you never know.

    Has the charge already been made to your account? If not, that will help.

    If it has been made, it will be more difficult..you can tell them the request hasn't been completed yet (which it never will be)..just be nice and explain the situation clearly.

    That's why if you ever buy something from a questionable site, always use a credit card. Amex credits your money back in situations like this almost instantly.

    Use a credit card next time. Most get you money back with little question asked. Then I'd get the card number closed/replaced just to be safe.

    It's a scam. I tried getting my money back through a claim on my credit card, but it was a no go due to their terms and conditions. Best idea is to report it to Advertising Standards Authority, BBC watch dog, Interpol, and any other place that will listen. Maybe if they get enough bad press, they will shut down.
