WARNING - Mateen Apps - Reza Pekan

***********WARNING****************

Hello Fellow devs

Just wanted to give you a heads up and a warning about a scammer here...

We bought source code from Mateen well over a month ago -

Last weekend he messaged me wanting to sell his itunes account, etc

We sent him the money - he then said he needed the same amount over again to send us downloads... HUH!

This was AFTER he agreed to send us EVERYTHING we needed within 48 hours.

He then said that if that wasn't acceptable for us to open a Paypal dispute...

He didn't refund our money -

Now WE have to wait on Paypal and HOPE that he hasn't already unlinked his banking for them to refund us...

I have FULL DOCUMENTATION to back up what I am saying...

What a scum bag.

    I bought also all his apps source code (200 apps) like 3 months ago, he have sent them to me, but we didn't agreed to have acces over his iTunes connect account.

    And for your info, a lot of the source code are with GameSalad.

    And on GameSalad forums, I read that he's a child.

    Dear All,

    I should visit this forum before I made payment to Mateen AppStore. I confirmed that this guy is SCAM. Like others said, I bought all his apps source code (200 apps) for the cost of $1,128.00 CAD with full resell rights and he then offer me by selling his itunes account, website and etc for $500 USD. I have made all payment to him.

    We have received his apps source code (200++) with the cost of $1,128.00 CAD (first payment) but he refuse to provide any accounts information to us after we made the second payment ($500 USD) to him. He requested us to made another $550 for upload fees. But I reject the deal until I found this forum.


    Below is the email he sent to my partner.

    Would you like to buy our AppStore account? $500

    We are asking you because we figured you'd be interested , let me know within 24 hrs so we can go ask someone else

    If you do buy , you get the entire account, all rights, and website, and account details!

    We can't own it anymore because we are getting into commercial and business with th government and we need to get rid of this ASAP that's why it's so cheap



    I ask him to refund the second payment $500 USD to me but he refuse to refund the money to me.

    He then also ask me to open a Paypal dispute...

    I have open 2 dispute with my Paypal and waiting Paypal to take action before others people get trap by this SCAMMER.

    WARNING !!! PLEASE READ THIS EMAIL BEFORE YOU GET TRAP.

    With an email as suspicious as that, why would anybody trust the person behind it?

    Yes, I contacted this jerk to buy a Doodle Jump Template, when I downloaded it, I recognized it as the EXACT same code that was used in a free YouTube tutorial. He didn't even bother to change the dev's name in the XCode comments or the name of the project. Only graphics were changed.

    When I demanded my money back, he said he would investigate and he admitted that it was a "mistake" and offered me additional templates(likely stolen from other people) but could not offer a refund. I said I would escalate it to Paypal for a refund, he changed his story back to the lie that it was his code and then tried to claim that I paid for the graphics not the code. Can't even keep his lies straight.

    It's not the money, more the principle. Even if Paypal can do nothing he will have to go through the time to prove his case and have another incident logged against him.

    I hope there is some legal recourse for someone who posts a free tutorial and has it stolen to resell for a profit.

    I want to take this guy down. I am going to be sending a letter to iTunes, PayPal, and YouTube informing them that he is using them to run a scam. If anyone could email me documentation of him being a scammer, that would be great.
    I am looking into the possibility of suing him as well.

    Just found out I won the Paypal dispute. They never even had to get around to asking me for info, I guess whatever he told them was not very convincing ;)
    Hope that means he has to take Eagle11's code down and stop selling it for profit too!

    You didn't contact this moderator. But thanks for posting and bringing this to my attention.

    Let's see... StupidCow and MateenAppStore (I really need to ban one of those), both coming from dsl.bell.ca. And look at that... MateenPekan coming from... wait for it.... dsl.bell.ca.

    The hackers have your same IP address! In fact, I'll bet they even use your keyboard! They are probably sitting in your chair at this very moment!

    Time to ban some duplicate accounts. Goodbye Mateen.

    Hello guys, I can't believe he is doing this stuff. I was just googling about the price that you can charge on app licensing and this post came up. I know this guy. I was the one that got him into development. The way he acts is very suspicious. - He asked me for one of my apps and I told him that he could only use it for education only and guess what he did. He is selling them. I wonder in how much trouble he is. He will be in jail sooner or later. I even have his Facebook because I'm friends with him. He is a kid. Maybe 17 or 18 right now. Now that I know that he as a scammer, I will delete him. Here is his link of Facebook if you want to get an extra info:

    https://www.facebook.com/deadbully

    @Moderators: did you ban his account or did you ban his IP and everything?

    He's still very active because I found 2 listings on SellMyApplication.com on his name:
    1st: http://www.sellmyapplication.com/source-code/★-lot-of-10-games-★/
    2nd: http://www.sellmyapplication.com/source-code/200-gamesapps-mixed-iphoneipad-source-codes-for-500/

    In his 1st listing he even links to his app or the App Store. The links are working which means they're still online.
    Either he uses somebody's else link or he uses his own link. If he uses his own link, than he has created a new account (because his old one was banned) under the name: Firoozeh Morady © Maloose Apps

    Check one of his app's link on SellMyApplication.com here:

    Thank you for this heads up. Its always good to know that people are out there looking out for others. I don't want to sound like I'm in his favour here but are you sure he is a scammer? There isn't any way that its taken this long legitimately? Maybe you could write a post based on your experiences and How to spot a scammer?

    You have two posts on this board starting today, and this your third post, questions whether he's a scammer?

    No offense meant, but have you read the whole thread?
