Scam with Flight Gear Simulator (another one)

Recommended Posts

Yep, it's Flight Gear again. Buried on a sub page they even admit it. The 'company' is from Bangalore, India and there are zero email addresses I could locate on the web page, their 'support' page doesn't exist as it returns you to the main web page.

 

Really 'scary' stuff.

Yeah, and the really scary bit is they added this site to our Links Database. Not too cool.

"Over 48 Programmers Work Together To Bring You The Single Most Advanced Flight Simulator Money Can Buy"

 

I love that, does "over 48" mean 48.5, or 48.75 maybe

:LMAO:

I think it means that only programmers born before about 1963 work on it.

I love their "real" testimonials they have up there. Give me a break! And the audio testimonial? They claim it's supposed to be unsolicited....it sounds like a radio announcer. No one talks like that normally.

 

Anyone that falls for this, well.....there's this saying 'a fool and his money are soon parted.'

Not calling anyone here a fool, but these guys seem to never stop and nothing can be done. All we can do is stay well informed and pass information on.

 

Really though, I know more scams then anyone can count exist in the world...but the flightsim community is SO small; do they really have to try and scam us too?

I guess if people try to scam senior citizens out of their social security checks, then the answer is yes.

I have reported that page to Facebook for spam/scam.

 

Their website, http://flightsimulatorplus.com/, is hosted by GoDaddy if anyone wants to file a report to them.

I liked the blurb header on that site --
