We would like to remind everyone again not to conduct any exchanges with them or any other sites that offers virtual currency or physical items exchanges. We’re not in any way associated or affiliated with any exchange sites, and never will be.

Then, they will either ask you to mail them the serial codes or enter it in an available field to verify your order. (at this point you have expose your serials to them).

After receiving your codes, they will halt all communications with you and you’ll end up losing your game codes in the process. Don’t fall victim to such obvious scams.

Be smart and do a reverse thorough look-up on such sites or contact us at our live support for answers, if you’re unsure of a particular site that offers such exchanges.

    I wish I had seen this on the 18th. I looked all over for information on any of the sites with the paydiscountorders@gmail.com footprint but I couldn’t find a single review. I was pretty sure it was a scam but decided to risk 30 dollars to see if anything happened. So far no communication at all with the seller/scammer. I don’t think the itunes code has been redeemed either but I’m not sure how to tell. I made the purchase through teir partypaks.com/orchestral portal.I wish there was a way to remove these people from the internet. Thank you for your information.

      Hey Andrew,

      My advice to you is to redeem the iTunes code immediately at Apple store to prevent the code from being used. Any websites that are willing to exchange physical items for iTunes codes are usually scam sites for your knowing. This syndicate has cheated a lot of customers and their M.O. usually works this way.

      – they will request you to enter your newly-purchased iTunes code to complete the transaction.
      – After entering your Itunes code, a pop-up message will inform you that the code is invalid. This is where you have expose your iTunes serials to them and these scammers will sell the codes off to another buyers of theirs.

      In the end, you will not receive the physical items as promised and even lost an iTunes code in the process. Do share the word out to your family and friends on this.

    I’m surprised there seems to be no one else reporting this as a scam. Your site is the only one that mentions them. They already redeemed the card. I tried to jump on it and redeem it myself but it was to late. I’m going to list them with ripoff report and similar sites.

    The best place to report these guys is the FTC i am pretty certain they deal with online scams/thefts in the US… Not sure about anywhere else… I’m in the UK.
