    Then i've got a mail from the seller:

    My Name is Abdullah Farakhan, Senior Technician here at Emergency unlocks. I am writing to inform you that we are making successful progress with your job, however the assigned technician informed me that your iDevice has a an additional Blacklist notification on its account. We cannot continue until this problem is resolved. We can resolve the problem but there is a minimal charge to remove these kind of network based notification. There are 2 options at resolving this Impasse.

    Option One
    If you do not wish to make payment for this Network Blacklist Notification removal, we will refund you 100% of your payment and cancel your Job.

    Option Two
    You make Paypal payment of $38.3USD to remove the Blacklist/Bad ESN from the device after which we will remove the Blacklist and continue your job after payment. Please note this figure has been discounted from the normal price of $50 USD for normal notification removal. We will send you a Paypal invoice if you choose this option.

    Please provide us with further instructions on how to proceed.

    i´m in same boat. signed up and right after making payment, my account was deleted. i was 100% sure about password, bu when emailed them, got this:

    ok, created same account again, and job was there. kept waiting... but after 12 days, sent them an email. no response. day after, another mail, no answer again. so opened a dispute in paypal:

    Now I´m waiting for paypal... Damn, can´t believe I was so stupid!

    I got refund from paypal. They simply didn´t answer the claim, so paypal refunded without problems.
