Real Scam Artists!

Although these guys aren't nigerian, look at how much they charge for their service! All they do is rip CDs!

No, this is not in any definition a scam.

They are offering a service, and you can agree or not with the price they charge.

But it is not a scam unless you can establish that they either do not deliver the service paid for, or otherwise steal money or idenitification.

LOL!

Hey ... $55 to rip 50 CDs seems like a deal to me ... that's perhaps the most mind-numbing task ever...

We do not keep copies of any CDs or MP3 files. Once your order is complete, your files are purged from our systems.
I guess they have to say this for legal reasons, but I wonder how true it is. Wouldn't it make sense to keep a library of frequently ripped titles?

I once ripped someone's CD collection for them, for the modest cost of 50c per CD. They're charging more, but they're in business. If people will pay, then it's no scam..
