MetroPipe Tunneler Pro VPN INTRODUCTION

Metropipe claims to provide the basic OpenVPN standard utilizing the off the shelf OpenVPN software application at the high end of the price range. Only six month and annual plans at the high end of the price market.

But Metropipe may be a scam. My CC was charged but I never received login credentials and there are many blog complaints about the same issue. They utilize the same credit card processor as Xerobank, another scam service. It appears they are also key loggers and are stealing data from clients. Stay clear of this service.

Full Review

After paying with credit card and getting confirmation that the payment was made from dalpay.com, and Icelandic outfit of so-so repute I got an email from Metropipe support that said the instructions will be mailed after reviewing the order. But the money was deducted from my CC and 4 days later no login credentials. That’s not good. Metropipe says it’s protecting my privacy by this ploy, but if the CC was already credited how can they be protecting anything other than the money they stole?

This is the same credit card processor, DalPay, used by Xerobank another scam VPN service provider. So I shouldn’t be surprised if they just steal the money.

Payment/Order Confirmation from DalPay.is

But so far no mails and no responses to my mails. 4 days later, nothing still. Looks like a scam to me.

Other blog comments:

1. Metropipe does something really weird to your system. If you load IE without first loading the DOS window which starts Metropipe I notice that the following comes up in Proxy Settings –> Exceptions in IE:-

;cgi*.ebay.com;disney.go.com;login.yahoo.com;msa_e 1.ebay.com;rhapsody_app*.listen.com;www.cdcovers.cc;www.netaddress.com;yates.com.au

The proxy port also changes from 8080 to 1030. The last two sites have been visited over the past couple of days. The others are curious. I have never been to listen.com and ebay seems to be there by default as I haven’t logged in there for ages. The cgi* and rhapsody_app* is a worry and cdcovers.cc is somewhere I visited about 3 months ago.

I paid for the tunnel with my credit card. 10 days later, today, I get an email saying that the card has been declined. This same card has been used very sucessfully elsewhere and has some credit on it. It doesn’t take that long to process a card. Has anybody had the charge successfully charged to their card? Do they in fact have card facilities?

The above should be able to be replicated so please take this as a warning and make up your own mind if this Metropipe thing is a keylogger. I have now replicated this about 1/2 dozen times.

2. To recap, the metropipe scam is this:

1. Entice users with free encrypted e-mail service.
2. Put banner for metropipe scam on each web page within said service.
3. Have banner link to fairly professional-looking website that offers
an encrypted proxy while playing up notions such as privacy, the bill
of rights, and the virtues of paying with e-gold.
4. Wait for sucker to pay you by irrevocable method such as e-gold.
5. Once sucker pays you, expecting the promised link, ignore him until
he asks what is going on.
6. Send sucker dead link, making him think there is some problem on his
end.
7. Once sucker complains about dead link, say “oops, sorry” and send
other dead link.
8. Wait for sucker to try both links several times from different
computers and finally give up on this bull*** and ask for a refund.
9. Ignore sucker’s request for a refund until he gets pissed enough to
alert others to the SCAM that is METROPIPE.

3. I signed up with this service, paid them 4 three month (they don’t offer one month) and never get the service to work. They did NOT reply for any of my 5 emails. You be careful and keep your money in your pocket.

4. I paid for the Metropipe VPN Service and was charged $59. but till this day I have not received the software and they have refused to respond to several mails which I sent to them. This has made me believe that MetroPipe is a scam.

5. These guys took my money, did not fulfill my order and refuse to answer my emails. Do not do business with them.

    Hello all!

    I’ve been with Metropipe for a few years now… about 7 actually, and I’ve NEVER had a problem with them in any way. I told one of my friends that this was the program that I use and that he should get it also, but then after reading things like this he said I should stop using it. Metropipe has been good to me, fast, and has always answered any questions I had within a day. I received my “login credentials” and I’ve been very happy with them. Also, my friend just got his login credentials also. :)
