    Hi there.

    www.mobilesim.co.uk

    Please, has anyone else purchased from this site? You need to contact me immediately: [email protected]

    It is absolutely urgent. He may have made literally thousands already. I have found one other victim online and we are going to the police. More people would really strengthen our case.

    This is absolutely terrible. I cant really afford this money and it was a gift for a relative. Why do some people devote their lives to hurting others?

    Hi,

    Sorry, was in communicae with another victim i met on digital-forums.

    Seemed legitimate enough - accepted paypal, nochex etc. and i was really happy with my order. Then i started to think it was too good to be true. And found a victim on the above site.

    I know, i thought perhaps he was mistaken and my phone would still arrive, but im now convinced we were conned.

    He has several different e-mail addresses, linked to different names. His registered address is not inhabited by the name he has given, he fails to respond to emails (40+), he still uses aol messenger yet ignores us but spoke to the other victim's friend, his paypal account is registered under two separate men, each with diffferent names to the one he originally registered with.

    However, there may still be hope.

    We do have his bank account details. His name may be mehdi yazdanparast. Although not registered to the address he has given, there is a family of the same name in his registered town. It is an uncommon name. He has also created a website in the past www.networkunlockers.com

    I just hope more vicitms come across this thread on google.
