: I got this mail after I sent them my iPhone imei. The link sends me to a site called which only allows me to download the code if I finish a survey.

The survey is to give your phone number to a ringtone page and it sends you a text message saying "Sms 22 to 31230 to activate the service now!'

I don't know whether that was one of those ringtone charging scams. Should I go through with it? Please help and please don't be rude.

: I do not have any personal experience with them.I tried to open the website now, but it did not exist. To check whether a site is legit usually, I do follow a simple checklist to see how well they do, especially when I need to part money with the site; 1) Does the site have a current SSL certificate? 2) Use to check the whois information and check whether the contact information matches with the one in the website. 3) In the domain contact details, is there a valid email address. 4) Is there a valid phone number visible, and does it work ? 5) Go through review about them using and check whether they are scam free. If I am satisfied with the result then I purchase a small priced article and if it is delivered safely and promptly then I go to purchase my desired product. You also can follow the steps that I do...In general, anyone who is trying to do legitimate business on the web will go out of their way to try and make it clear that they are legitimate. So if a site has not even done the bare basics to give customers enough confidence to buy they're products, then it is almost certainly some sort of scam.
