Backify est mort, désinstallez tout !

| 4 commentaires

Un petit article pour mettre en garde les utilisateurs et mes amis bloggers / testeurs : tout n'est pas rose bonbon par ici.

Info rapide pour les personnes qui auraient installé Backify (si, si, vous savez, une offre à 512 Go de stockage, gratuite). Désinstallez-le.


Je n’avais pas relayé l’info à l’époque car l’offre, bien que tentante, n’était qu’une revente de la solution livedrive. Il apparait aujourd’hui que les services de Backify ont été coupés suite à des plaintes concernant les cartes de crédit. Voici l’email reçu:

We are writing to you regarding BACKIFY.COM who you recently created
an online backup account with.

BACKIFY.COM was a reseller of Livedrive (http://www.livedrive.com).
Livedrive provided the technology and service behind the product
offered to you by BACKIFY.COM.

We are writing to inform you that BACKIFY.COM is no longer a Livedrive
reseller and the services that they purchased from our company on your
behalf have been terminated. If you are using a service provided by
BACKIFY.COM and powered by Livedrive then this service will now have
stopped working.

We would also like to advise you that we have received a number of
complaints about BACKIFY.COM from their customers and from industry
organizations. We would like to advise you not to provide any credit
card information to BACKIFY.COM. If you have provided credit card
information to BACKIFY.COM then we would suggest contacting your card
provider and informing them that your card may be used fraudulently.
If BACKIFY.COM have charged your card for services not provided you
should contact your card provider and ask them to initiate a
chargeback procedure.

Please note that this advisory is being sent to you in good faith
because we feel you should be informed that BACKIFY.COM is no longer a
Livedrive reseller and of the complaints we have become aware of. No
contract exists between yourself and Livedrive and we are not able to
assist further in any dispute you may have with BACKIFY.COM.
Merci à Nico pour l’info
