Is Helpmobi a Scam? Mobile Geolocation Service

Helpmobi located at helpmobi.io, which claims they can locate a mobile phone, appears to be a scam. If you enter any bogus telephone number on their website and request the location, it will claim it has located the fake number and then ask for your credit card information to make a payment of £1.00 in order to get the coordinates. Seems to be a trick to get credit card information.

Helpmobi claims it is completely legal to request a mobile phone location, but this is not entirely true. Even though it's technically possible to track someone via a cell phone using GPS or tower triangulation, it's not always legal. Unless you are part of a law enforcement agency and have a warrant to do so, it is usually illegal to track the physical location of an adult person through his or her cell phone without his or her consent. This doesn't mean that it's illegal to track a person at all; it just means that you need that person's permission.

    LOL, total scam. If u enter a complete random number that doesn't exist the site still says its tracked your phone and asks for $1. This site needs to be taken down!

    Beware subscribes you to a different company Smartmobi.io and will try and take money out of your account. Please check your bank account if you have used this service.

    SCAM

    It doesn’t work; you pay a pound for 72 hrs and in the small print they subscribe you to their scam at £24.90

    To cancel within 72 hrs go to helpmobI website

    Yes definitely a scam. It took me about 2 days to access the supposed location data (that's 2 days lost, which was important). This location was about a mile from the phone's home, a location the phone had never been to. In the event the phone was found at home.

    The key thing is that the messing around, exchanging emails with helpmobI and trying to login, used up the whole of my 72 hours for £1. Surprise, surprise, the next day, as I've just found out from my credit card statement, they took the subscription fee of £29.99.

    I have no doubt that they will say I accepted their terms and conditions and therefore they were entitled to take the monthly subscription, for a service which clearly is a scam.

    Yes they are a scam. by paying them the £1 you agree via the small print to join their service for £29.90 a month. It was five months before I noticed..
