How most scammers work
I write this post based on my experienced within this business. I have saved up some money just to test these websites that are "too good to be true". In the end I've ended up in stress and waste of many time.
Anyone in the unlocking business can easily scam anyone. You thank PayPal is safe, then think again. You are safe with any scammer if you pay with a debit card or credit card. But this will be on a different topic. A scammer will create many free email accounts and for each with many paypal accounts. Paypal allows you a fix amount of credit limit for the year before you need verify your paypal account. So let us say, for the year, paypal allows you £1500 (I think its more). So having 4 different paypal accounts, that is £1500 x 4 is the amount of money you can have. When you pay on a scammer's website they will receive the money, sends it elsewhere (not withdrawn to bank account) then closed down the account (this happened to me!). Simple huh? So how to get your money if you pay through your paypal account? It can take many days as the scammer has already closed down that paypal account. BUT! If you pay with a debit card or credit card, just ring your bank and request a chargeback!!!!!!
How to trust an unlocking business?
- Has feedbacks (from other websites) NOT on their website!!!!!!!
- Is a legal company with the correct address and land-line number (no unregistered numbers such as only 0800, 0845 etc Anyone can have those numbers!!)
- eBay feedbacks (be kind if they are new on ebay )
If you are looking for cheap unlocks and many businesses are doing it for 50% more...stay away from too good to be true!
The person that scammed me Im still in a dispute knowing that all his paypal accounts have been deleted. Good thing I was testing them out!

You made the deal with GR SOLUTION INN...???
He is scammer and Listed as a cheater in Forums...
thanks for the wonderful article
I'd just be cautious if you were to do this. Paypal does generally favor the customer though.
Thanks so much for your fast reply.
I have 3 Sprint iphone 5 and rsim didn't got unlocked, I see no other option rather than this.
But I find it very strange this sale....
I would always be cautious of members of ebay with such a low feedback and more so the only 2 feedback have been for nokia lumina unlocks. Also I'm not sure if you noticed that the picture is from an i device owners website, not sure if they have an affiliation with that site either! oh and they all show the same picture with t-mobile written on the wall in the picture.
did someone worked with imei-server.com ?
they got to good prices to be true i need to make 2 orders and i dont know if they are scammers ?
