There are senior members on the forums who serve as Moderators. These volunteers keep the board organized and moving.
Moderators are authorized to: (in order of increasing severity)
Move posts to the correct forums. Many times, members post in the wrong forum. These off-topic posts may impede the normal operation of the forum.
Edit posts. Moderators will edit posts that are offensive or break any of the House Rules.
Delete posts. Posts that cannot be edited to comply with the House Rules will be deleted.
Restrict members. This is one of the last punishments before a member is banned. Restrictions may include placing all new posts in a moderation queue or temporarily banning the offender.
Ban members. The most severe punishment. Three or more moderators or administrators must agree to the ban for this action to occur. Banning is reserved for very severe offenses and members who, after many warnings, fail to comply with the House Rules. Banning is permanent. Bans cannot be removed by the moderators and probably won't be removed by the administration.

The Rules

1. Warez, copyright violation, or any other illegal activity may NOT be linked or expressed in any form. Topics discussing techniques for violating these laws and messages containing locations of web sites or other servers hosting illegal content will be silently removed. Multiple offenses will result in consequences. File names are not required to discuss your issues. If filenames are copyright then do not belong on these forums & will be edited out or post removed. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

2. Spamming and excessive advertising will not be tolerated. Commercial advertising is not allowed in any form, including using in signatures.

3. There will be no excessive use of profanity in any forum.

4. There will be no racial, ethnic, or gender based insults, or any other personal attacks.

5. Pictures may be attached to posts and signatures if they are not sexually explicit or offensive. Picture sample attachments in posts must not include copyright infringement.

6. Remember to post in the correct forum. Take your time to look at other threads and see where your post will go. If your post is placed in the wrong forum it will be moved by a moderator. There are specific Gnutella Client sections for LimeWire, Phex, FrostWire, BearShare, Gnucleus, Morpheus, and many more. Please choose the correct section for your problem.

7. If you see a post in the wrong forum or in violation of the House Rules, please contact a moderator via Private Message or the "Report this post to a moderator" link at the bottom of every post. Please do not respond directly to the member - a moderator will do what is required.

8. Any impersonation of a forum member in any mode of communication is strictly prohibited and will result in banning.

9. Multiple copies of the same post will not be tolerated. Post your question, comment, or complaint only once. There is no need to express yourself more than once. Duplicate posts will be deleted with little or no warning. Keep in mind a forum censor may temporarily automatically hold up your post, if you do not see your post, do not post again, it will be dealt with by a moderator within a reasonable time. Authors of multiple copies of same post may be dealt with by moderators within their discrete judgment at the time which may result in warning or infraction points, depending on severity as adjudged by the moderators online.

10. Posts should have descriptive topics. Vague titles such as "Help!", "Why?", and the like may not get enough attention to the contents.

11. Do not divulge anyone's personal information in the forum, not even your own. This includes e-mail addresses, IP addresses, age, house address, and any other distinguishing information. Don´t use eMail addresses in your nick. Reiterating, do not post your email address in posts. This is for your own protection.

12. Signatures may be used as long as they are not offensive or sexually explicit or used for commercial advertising. Commercial weblinks cannot be used under any circumstances and will result in an immediate ban.

13. Dual accounts are not allowed. Cannot explain this more simply. Attempts to set up dual accounts will most likely result in a banning of all forum accounts.

14. Video links may only be posted after you have a tally of two forum posts. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam. Video link posting with less than a 2 post tally are considered as spam.

15. Failure to show that you have read the forum rules may result in forum rules breach infraction points or warnings awarded against you which may later total up to an automatic temporary or permanent ban. Supplying system details is a prerequisite in most cases, particularly with connection or installation issues.

Violation of any of these rules will bring consequences, determined on a case-by-case basis.

Thank You! Thanks for taking the time to read these forum guidelines. We hope your visit is helpful and mutually beneficial to the entire community.

If you paid $18.88 and downloaded it from it's not a scam site...I have read your other posts about not being able to get limewire to work properly for you and it has nothing to do with being scammed...If you cannot ask for some simple help without ranting and raving and you used some manners, you would get some help...
So until you do your on your own....

Fairly simple plan if you ask me. If you scroll down on the main web page, even the one you mentioned in your post, there is a Customer Service address there. Pump that addy into your email and plug away. Make sure you give them your order ID, total charges, etc. I just copy/pasted from the receipt I received in my welcome email.
As a side note, these are the numbers for your site at the time of this writing. Check back in a week or so and see if they are the same. You might be surprised!

I would do it, I went after them after 3 months simply because of pride. Ask them how to unsubscribe and get a refund. Also, play as dumb as you can regarding the "handling charge". Contact the phone company and check to see the charges for making the call. I noticed they have an international number on there (1-408-512-1933), maybe give the phone company the number and see if they can tell you the charges...... Sounds like a lot of work, but to do nothing only makes these guys want to feed off the next person even more. Plus, the more info and experience that we put into this thread, the more it'll help the next person.

Good luck

wow they do change here's the new info...

I just stuck with the free. I think "PRO" was just 18.00 us or about. I have never seen it posted for more. Guess I just don't look. It takes and tries a lot of pantience. but the end results are not that bad. if you at the end of the day get what you wanted.

Read through this whole thread, you'll see how other people have been able to get a refund from scammers. You never said who you bought from, or how much you paid...
Please Help (LW 'lifetime membership')

It's probably going to depend on how long ago you bought LW as well, most of the people in this thread contacted the scammers soon after buying LW. If you bought ages ago, I don't think you'll have much luck getting a refund. But you can always try anyway.

Default Money Back

We bought our lifetime membership from Limewire, we have an order number. When we tired to send them an email stating that we got a virus and when fixing it Limewire was taken out, we asked how to get back on without paying. We have never gotten an answer. We paid by credit card. We bought it on May 12, 2007.
Thanks for the help,

Have a look at your statement...exactly who is the vendor, listed next to the transaction?
How much did you pay for LW? Did you pay for LW Pro or basic LW?

Did you recieve an email after buying LW? If so, who was it from & what did it say?

I want to get my money back for buying Limewire Pro-I unfortunately succumbed to their constant come-ons everytime I signed on. My downloading has been nearly nil since I got the Pro and was working beautifully for years before I got the "Pro"-I have all the same software, computer, dsl, space, speed, etc as I did when I didn't buy the "Pro"-talk about getting scammed. Just what the %$&*& does the so-called "Pro" have that's do %##%&*ng special?!!! How do I get my money back Mr/Ms Moderator?
