    Default Well it happend.... Attempted scammer

    We have added over 60 users to our developer account and want to thank the support. There has only been one bad egg who opened a claim with PayPal stating that we have scammed them and removed their UDID. We have taken full action against this attempted scam by a ModMyI member against our account and will be persuing this to its full extent.


    If anyone is thinking of buying a spot from anyone and going to try to scam them, be aware that the Apple Developer Center logs and tracks all devices that are added and removed from the list. We can not modify this list and any dev will submit this to paypal to prove their case.

    Sorry. Aparently enter to go to a new line submitted my post. Haha.


    Cliffnotes: pretty much a user here: famousplayer devided to open a claim with paypal saying we have removed his UDID from our account.

    There is numerous developers I know that have opened their dev accounts to take donations to help small dev teams pay for the account, hardware, etc and have been dealt with attempted scammers. Just a FYI for anyone thinking about it in general that there is a log on the Apple Dev center that proves any dev case that a UDID has been modified or changed/deleted.

    Yep. We escalated the case he opened with PayPal and are going to peruse it. We have already submitted emails, screen shots, and offered login details to our dev account to see that nothing has been modified on his UDID.

    Its a lot over $6 but we just don't have patience for people who try to scam us.

    Haha ya. Its funny how some people are. I had an email from Paypal that the case was opened before he even sent me an email. Screenshots of the dev center history seemed to work pretty well since PayPal closed the case.
