Common Scams To Avoid When Looking To Download Games For iPhone

To download games for iPhone as well as lots of other iPhone-compatible media you do not seem to have to search hard. Google the phrase and here you are – thousands of websites for iPhone downloads are eagerly waiting for you.

Here is where you should stop and assess each site that draws your attention sensibly. Since so many people nowadays are looking to download games for iPhone, scammers don’t waste time and promptly set up larger than life websites aimed at inexperienced victims.

Here are the website types to stay away from if you don’t want to land up in a big trouble:

1. Torrent or P2P Websites

They may not be asking money from you, but that doesn’t mean they are harmless. Don’t let yourself get involved in illegal and unverified file sharing. This is not the right place to download games for iPhone. If you are lucky, you may only waste your time spending hours to download one game, which will turn to be unplayable at the end. At worst, you may download a virus instead of the desired game and end up with a computer crash. There are chances for your iPhone to get harmed as well.

2. So-called “Free” Sites

They will advertise big way, doing everything possible to capture your attention. But all the claims of free downloads turn to be nothing but a marketing trick. These sites don’t have anything of their own; they make profits from displaying ads. So, when you come to such a site, you are invited to click one link, then the other, and at the end you find yourself on one of the regular paid websites, charging $30-40 for a monthly subscription.

Another scam of these seemingly free sites is to make you register, download a game for iPhone and… pay for the format converting software (normally available online for free) or an activation code required to “unlock” the game. In the worst variant, they may request you for your credit card details (under any believable pretext) – the rest you can imagine.

Of course, there are some fraudulent paid websites as well, but free offers are a way more suspicious and more frequently used by scammers. In any case, privacy policy and user reviews are two things to check out first.
