Free for a Fee. What part of "Free" don't you understand?

Article by Lev Shamilov.   September 23, 2004


MyMusicInc
click to see full size*

Well, I personally don't understand the part that has letters F and two E's. Here's why: Today I found an advertisement for a web site called MyMusicInc. The advertisement were saying the service is free, and I genuinely believed them, since I love music. So I typed my E-mail address and clicked on the button called Download now.

First of all Download? Download what? My E-mail address?? Because that's what I typed in the box, right next to the Download now button, so logically you would assume that the Download button suppose to let you download something. But that was a lie, because instead of downloading I was redirected to the second page. And of course I knew that.

So this company lied to me once, before I even signed up for anything. They mislead me. The name of the button was a lie. Let's see what happens next. On the second page I was surprisingly (or not) presented to an option to sign up for one of their membership plans for a fee!


Sign up page

What? I thought the advertisement was that I can download for free, but apparently I can't, because I have to pay them some fee for the membership before I would be able to download something for free.

Do I have a problem with english language? Please help me! Because I thought the free means no fee. Apparently it's not for the MyMusicInc.

Here's an idea: I will give you my house for free. Just give me 2 million US dollars and you can have it for free. Nice logic, isn't it? That's how MyMusicInc's thinks.

But that's not all. If you will look at their home page, on the list saying "Why We Are The #1 Download Website", one of the reasons stating "NO POP-UPS". Again, silly me, I want to believe them. When I saw the sign up page and realized that I just been lied to, I decided to leave them, so I clicked the Back button in my browser, and here's what I saw: 2 POP-UP windows. They said NO POP-UPS but they will flood you as soon as you would try to leave. There's even more, their webmasters has done such a poor job, they didn't even checked where I go! They thought I were leaving their web site where in fact I was just going back in my browser to the previous page which was their HOME PAGE! How wrong that is? Their entire IT department should get fired for such a poor job.

Oh by the way, the two pop-up windows where advertisements for other MP3 related web sites, most likely the other web sites of the same company. One called MP3Advance.com which offers exactly the same thing - downloads. The other called MP3DownloadHQ.com which offered (can you guess?) right MP3 Downloads!

Here's what I don't understand the most: They so openly lied to me. They mislead me, they lied about free downloads, they lied about pop-up windows, and now they are trying to offer me some other services? I think that's really stupid, don't you think? Yeah, like I am going to believe them now, and will sign up to these other services.

Can you believe it? Just imagine, you are walking on the street, and here's a salesman staying in front of a shoe store and telling you: "Hey, just come here, I will give you this pair of shoes for free." You are making few steps and walking into the store, asking: "...so where are they?". And the salesman tells you: "Sorry, I can't give you them for free, you have to buy them!".

What would you do to that salesperson, if this happens to you? ...A punch in the face would be appropriate, I think! But I know, you have to be nice, so you would probably say what's in your mind and leave the store, because you don't want to give your money to the liar.

So the next time you see a web site like this - do what you would do if that would be a real store, on the street. Just leave, and never comeback!.

But you know what? I just wanted to see how much this company would lie, so I decided to check the two logos I noticed at the bottom of their home page. One says ZDNet Editor's Choice the other indicated a rating of 5 of 5 on some shareware web site 5/5 on Shareware River. They were listed under proud title Awards. See the left bottom of their home page. To my surprise these logos didn't had a hyper link under them. Usually when company receives such awards, they link back to the site that issued the award, for the proof, but it wasn't in this case.

So I decided to make my own investigation. A simple search of both web sites immediately revealed the truth that neither of them ever heard anything about MyMusicInc web site. Here's the search result of ZDNet Editor's Choice and 5/5 on Shareware River at the time of writing this article.

So they lied again. ...why am I not surprised?... Let me ask you: Would you hire a person with fake diploma? I don't think so. Well, on the internet, these logos are web sites credentials. Faking them is like forgery a diploma or ID. Now it's not a lie anymore - it's a crime! This behavior should be punishable.

Anyway, the bottom line is - pay attention to these little details such as mislabeled buttons. If they lied once, most likely the whole web site is a sham. Yeah, maybe they would do a fraction of the service they promise, but we suggest you to stay away from sites like this, because to me they are not any better than any scam artists who tries to still your money.

Actually, hey, check this out. If you go to their site, and go to "Member Login"... THEIR LOGIN SYSTEM IS FAKE!!! Just type in ANY name, and ANY e-mail address, and it will let you in.

Isn't that retarted?!?! And once you get in to the members site, get ready for a good laugh. All they offer you is Limewire, and instructions on how to download from Limewire. Plus they offer you "bonuses" like other FREE media players and software.. that you can get for FREE anywhere yourself! And click on the "song lyrics" link.. oh man... what a waste of time and energy for any human being.

Good work on the article.

MyMusicInc... their collection of MP3s is so extensive, they have songs, artists, and albums that don't even exist! Just open their "search" and type in whatever you want, the network has it! Guranteed!

This is quite an extensive scam... they even set up a fake reviews site to plug the scam (and probably reduce the liklihood of people finding pages like this REAL review). http://webreviews.org/

Looks like all the services on that review page are the same scam.

I got scammed by them too and im pissed! I cant even get them to respond to my emails of course so I am going to try sending them a million faxes at once. That is if their fax number is even legit

Ugh i gave my email and now i they wont stop sending my mail about there great "Free music" and software. any ideas on how to unsubscribe seeing as the links to that are fake in the email they send. btw very true what you have said, this should be against the law as i came across this looking for a mp3 that i couldnt find anywhere and they said they had it, i gave my email address and now i get at least 3 emails a day from them, very annoying.

What you pay for in these gimmicks is access to links that you can for free on your own anyway. In the case of MP3DownloadHQ.com , what you get for free is a short list of downloads by unsigned & unknown artists. They also never respond to requests.

PayPal should also be checked for allowing websites to use there services in cases such as fraud as paypal say's they don't allow abuse of there services and yet they do.

Thanks for the info! I typed in "internet fraud mymusicinc" in google search the instant I found mymusicinc.com just to check out if I could find anything out about why a company could give you unlimited downloads for just 99 cents a month. Was I ever glad I did! ~ Grace

kudos to you for unearthing this shameless and sham website. i too, nearly paid for it.. afterall whats 0.99 per month right? and they say if not satisfied then full money back guarantee within 30 days (another lie ofcourse). music download is understandable, but dvd movies?? isn't anything legal anymore? and to assume that nbc/cnn/etc etc who's logos have been used on the site, would endorse such a site!

It’s a classic example of some punk who is trying to take your money for something you can do for your self. They just provide the page to download the software.....did I mention you can do that for free also...lolol....what should really be done is have sites like this removed so innocent people don’t get taken advantage of by would-be scam artists.

I also havehad a bad experience with them. I applied for one months subscription to their FREE music but they took the cost of a yearly subscription out of my account. When I emailed them for a refund they all but told to get lost. I requested the name of the customer service Manager & I got a real snotty reply at 12:50am from some guy called Brian who was supposedly the the CSM. However I am sure he was the half wit that I had been dealing with all lalong . I have since had to cancel my credit card as I am afraid they will help themselves again. I am now seeking the aid of the ombudsman as I believe them to a very dodgy operation & would advise all to give them a very wide berth indeed.....

I totally enjoyed all the comments.

The following is my favorite..

'Don't be fooled by the people saying that My Muisc INC are a bunch of Scammers they are all ignorant bastards'.

Duh! I wonder who sent that? and how much they paid him?

(Life's Lesson) 'If it sounds too good to be true, it is!

People! wake up and smell the coffee!

The Good old days of free Napster and free Kazaa are
over'.

I almost pissed my pants when I saw the .99 per month
deal. But then my mind wandered back to reality, so I ran
a Google search..

One of the perks of having 63 years of life's experiences.

'A fool and their money are soon parted'.

If everyone you saved from this scam sent you just five bucks that they would've otherwise lost you would be richly rewarded indeed.

Good job!

Folks:
Just called the 877-354-0013 number, and "Tommy" picked up on the second ring. He took my e-mail address, and told me that my money will be refunded in 3-5 business days. I will keep you all posted on whether or not it happens.

I was suspicious. I've just been on the site, knowing nothing about it. I asked some awkward questions - about quality, range of music, performers, origin of Midi files. None of the questions were answered. Your comments above allow me to close the book. I had been planning to do some research. You've done it. Thanks.

I was told I could download for a one off fee, but when I finished registering my CC details they said there would be further fees. I cancelled my subscription immediately.
I thought no more about it, until I got my monthly CC statement, they had stolen $18.95 and $29.95 from my account. Is there anything I can do?

Thanks, I came within 30 seconds of subscribing. By the way, where is a decent mp3 download site with a good range of rock/folk general. Not itunes, as they don't sell to South Africa (sanctions still in place 12 years later). Shango

Please DON'T confuse this company with mymusic.com as they are legitimate and a great online store for CDs and DVDs. Their customer service is great and super friendly.

Recap:
mymusicinc.com - FRAUD!
mymusic.com - REAL!

I stupidly signed up. I found 1 song I wanted! To download that one song took 7 minutes!! Per their stated policy I e-mailed them to cancel my subscription. Fie e-mails and one fax later I still have no response or refund. I also think they may be selling customer info because after I sined up with them I had 2 charges to my checking account from FS Hoodia Burn Fat and Lean RX. These are the same company being run by a scam artist named Joseph Geoeli. dba Nova PointeLLC. I would like to get enough people to file class action suit against this guy.

I had never heard of mymusicinc until today. The first I knew of them was a $32.79 charge on my credit card statement. I know I haven't been downloading anything from them, so I went to Google. And how can you resist a link saying "shameless liars with a web sites and services full of traps"? So I'm talking to my card company...

Great article. I almost fell for it but something in the back of my head held me back from entering my credit card details. Something about it just sounded to good to be true. I decided to investigate further and found this article and comments which opened my eyes to the truth. Thanx everyone.

I tried the 30 day free trial. Canceled after 10 days. That was in September 06. We are now in November and still no refund. MymusicInc is a total scam. Stay away, they are selling you Limewire under a different name. You can download limewire for free in many sites!

I tried the 30 day free trial. $44.90 USD. Canceled after 10 days. That was in September 06. We are now in November and still no refund. MymusicInc is a total scam. Stay away, they are selling you Limewire under a different name (rocketpro). You can download limewire for free in many sites!
I just call them at (877) 354- 0013. Of course I told them about this site telling the truth about them. They excuses were so lame and poor!
First, they did not recognized (sure!) the transaction number (order number on your receipt) because it started with XX.... I explained that the payment was through 'clickbank'
One of their explanations was that since the payment was made through "clickbank" and not 'Paypal' or 'ePay', I should contact 'clickbank'. for the refund. I refused, I bought the subscription from them and point it to the guy in the phone, that all of these was part of their scam. Then he said he was going to contact clickbank and I should receive my refund soon. I hope so. Anyway, I will post the result here.

A lit bit wiser now, but my first clue that something was amiss was when I clicked on their $24.44 "lifetime" option and as soon as I gave my AmEx, it came back with a confirmation of $39.39. I called 877-354-0013 with 5 minutes and was told my charge would be "voided." I politely asked if they would send an email confirmation to that effect and were reluctant to do so. I have disputed fraudulent card charges in the past and it is more than just a matter of claiming fraud - the card co. only removes the disputed charge for a period of time while the customer has to do the legwork to track down documentation to prove their case. Even after this guy tried to put me off, I pointed out to him that I was already getting spam thanks to my naivete in handing over my email address, so would he please send me an email confirming that the charge would be removed (with my transaction ID#) while I waited on the line. He was a little taken aback when I pointed out to him that I would prefer to take care of it NOW and not have to call back when the charge hits my bill and 30 days had lapsed. Wish I had checked your site first. Will know better next time.

I have to agree with the opinion of Lev! I have allot more experience with MyMusicInc. Unfortunately I actually paid for the music service for a 1 year membership and was very disappointed. I searched the web for reviews on downloading sites to find out which sites had the best software, customer support etc... I found three different web sites that rated this program #1! So after long debate and research I chose MyMusicInc as my music service. I am not the type to think your going to get something for nothing...I mean paying $20. for unlimited music is still much cheaper than buying cd's which are absolutely obsolete nowadays anyway. This music service totally mislead me after purchasing their software. First of all there is no way of finding out your system requirements before you purchase the software...big mistake on my part! Once you become a member you still have to contact support for basic system requirement info. After I received a follow up e-mail from them I still didn't get any info. Instead I was asked a bunch of questions about my system that I already provided. I replied to their e-mail and never heard back! I'm guessing it's because they screwed up and know it's a scam! To this day I still can not get a proper answer from them and the software runs like crap on my computer, so I've uninstalled the software and went with a more informative web site that gave me info on my system requirements before signing up, in fact it is posted on the home page before you even type or click anything. That still doesn't get my $20 bucks back from MyMusicInc, in fact it cost me $30 at MusicEtc but I have no problems with their software and I couldn't tell you how their support is cause I haven't had to use it. This is a good thing, unfortunately I was stung by MyMusicInc before I found a legitamate site at MusicEtc.

I've never even heard of this company before today. I noticed a charge from them on my bank statement, then searched around and found this site. I never once authorized anything for them or even knew about them. I have no idea how they even got my credit card information.

I guess they're going at a new low now.

this is very true those 'free download websites are liars!' it really seems like they really dont understand english. especially limewire each time i choose the plan for 2yrs unlimited downloads for 0.99 per month they switch me to some plan for 38 dollars and some cents and when i'm ready to place order they tells me i have to pay for the 38 dollars and some cent that really lie to their customers.
