Hi All

I come across this site while looking for an auction script

http://www.freephpscripts.co/free-auction-script.htm

what attracted me their offer was the free for .edu and .org domains.

As i have a .org domain i decided i would give it a go, so filled on their form where they do have an optional offer of an installation service for $39, which i never chose as i can install these types of scripts myself.

30 hours past and no communicatiosn from them so i emailed them to try and get an ETA of when i can expect the script and i got this back.

Dear Friend,

Due to hundreds of daily requests, sometimes it takes a little more time.

Maybe if you can purchase the installation service, I can ensure that it
is installed on your server within 12-24 hours at the max:

Have a Wonderful Day!

Kind Regards,
Robin
which in the time it took them to write the email and send it, they could of easily attached the script to the email, so why pay $39 for them to install a script if they cannot work out how to add an attachment to an email.

Thats quite silly of them :\.

Seems like they don't really want to honor the free .edu / .org license & are trying to squeeze in any profit they can.

Let us know if they ever send you the script / license .

What a shameful practice on their behalf.

personally i dont think they are ever going to issue these free scripts. i think i may report their practices to their local authority and upstream provider.
