    Default WARNING about Akdak Infotech developer (crappy aps + WEEKLY SPAM forever!)

    I hope this warning will spare some Blackberry owners the trauma I have experienced after buying (then deleting) a few of the crappy aps in the Blackberry App Store, going under the name of "Akdak Infotech". The company name is listed as “Akdas Infotech” (which is a non-existent website) . . . and their “support email” is also bhogus (returns “unknown address”):
    Support Email: support@ak-das.com

    My experience is that after installing ANY of their aps, then deleted it from my Blackberry Bold,
    I immediately started getting weekly SPAM . . . “Buy our weekly offer”.

    These spams contain NO “unsubscribe” link, and the message headers are INVISIBLE (somehow coded so you can not see who sent it at all, or add to a spam filter).

    The body messages ALSO contain NO links EXCEPT a “BUY NOW” button.


    This “Akdas Infotech” has NO way to contact the developers . . . NO WAY to UNSUBSCRIBE from SPAM messages sent after installing any of their aps,
    and (as far as I know) are engaged in ILLEGAL SPAMMING through the Blackberry App store.

    I ultimately had to change my Blackberry email address just to stop the WEEKLY SPAM.

    I reported them to the Blackberry webmaster, but never got a reply (how surprising).

    So, anyway, I hope I've saved some fellow Crackberry's the grief of buying ANYTHING from "Akdas Infotech".


    HERE IS A LIST of this developer's Blackberry apps . . . I strongly suggest you DO NOT BUY or INSTALL ANY OF THEM . . . or you will end up getting SPAM from them for the rest of your life . . and NO WAY TO UNSUBSCRIBE.

    Seriously . . . what "honest" company HIDES their email headers code and doesn't let you unsubscribe?These guys are clearly CROOKS.

    Don't say you weren't warned . Akdak Infotech **** really should be BANNED *** from the Blackberry App Store completely because of their OUTRAGEOUS SPAMMING PRACTICES.

    I'm using one of the appliaction, but I'm not getting any spam at all. Maybe it's just you.

    It may be that the spam messages are P2P using your PIN, that way you do not get a "email header".
    Try disabling PIN messaging in your firewall on the phone.
    It's under Options/Security/Firewall on my 9850.

    Really disappointed

    I have waited for sometime for an app to lock SMS and emails imagine my excitement then sudden disappointment on seeing the :SMS eMail LockBy AKDAS InfoTech upon installing the app from Blackberry App World which was advertised as ~FREE I was informed that it is only a Demo and has to be purchased I decided to uninstall the app without trying as I could not find the cost. After reading the above link maybe I have been saved a lot of trouble - disappointed - Does anyone know of another app that does lock SMS and Emails?

    I have got another type problem, I make payment in the Blackberry App Store, and the payment SMS from my bank showed the money has been transacted to the app developer, but the Blackberry App Store replied a warning message about wrong key something, and I got a failure on buying software, i have feedback to the develper - AKDAS INFO TECH, let's see what information would response from them.
