Scam Apps in app world - Lycon Apps

Unfortunately I am unable to contact ANYONE about this problem. So here is a warning:

 

The developer 'Lycon Apps' are making useless apps in App world, charging for them and ripping people off. They are titling their apps in appropriately . They have hundreds of apps which seem useful but in reality they are App generator apps which serve no use whatsoever. This shouldnt be allowed, as this may stop people from buying other apps for they may think they will get scammed again. 

 

Dear BB, do something.

 

Thanks.

"BB" likely won't notice this post, since it's a user to user forum. You're better off posting to one of developer advisors in your Developer section of the forum, or sending one a PM.

Another scamming developer with the same rubbish as Lycon apps.

Re: Scam Apps in app world - Lycon Apps

Well, with a name that has Lie (Ly) and Con in it, what can you really expect from them?
