expensive freewares

Recommended Posts

The reason of this message is because some guys are flooding several e-mail addresses offering a 3CD pack with FS Freeware at $120.I presume that you, as freeware producers or users, should know this case. I think this one in particular is even worse because these guys are spamming and they have a homepage where you can see the contents of their "packs". Moreover, they don't state that they are selling freeware! Please check it out, their address is www.fsclub.com.arReading the prices I'm not afraid to promote the site!

Just another site that needs to be shut down. :(People are taking advantage of the fact that some people make these files for no profit. :'(

There's a few of mine as well (E-S3,P-3C,A-6E) and they don't have my permission to sell my "Freeware" aircraft! Anybody know if anything can be done about it? Rick Sasala

They do not state the author's names in their listings, but by the size of the file I believe theyve also inlcuded one of my ATR'sThey do not provide any contact info, but there is an email address at the end of the CD content list: comandante@fsclub.com.arPaco

Yup, this is definitely a club for low-lifes. Might I suggest that the proper owners of the pirated works drop these guys a line saying that they have been discovered, and all materials and information has been handed over to the FBI and/or Interpol for investigation of software piracy. Then I suggest you do contact these agencies and let them deal with it. Software piracy is something that those agencies take a very dim viewpoint of. Just a suggestion, and good luck! If these guys do reside in the USA, then they are relatively easily "got".Glenn

Is it just me, or does that site look a LOT like Carenado's?Strikingly similar, I might add. So similar I'd venture a guess that they're somehow related.Wouldn't surprise me too much...
