I have just been made aware of a scam PDF Document Scanner app that was recently added to Google Play that is duping customers into a $70/year IAP annual subscription. The reason I was made aware of this is I was just contacted by a user wishing to cancel their subscription, and Google Play, in their infinite wisdom, referred the user to me
, telling her that this was my app!
The scam app in question is developed by some outfit called ViewAI Lab
and can be found here:
Just to be clear, this app is not developed by me
, and has no affiliation with Ape Apps whatsoever. As near as I can tell, this app is just a scam in order to trick users into buying an expensive annual subscription.
If you are interested in a real
PDF Document Scanner app that will not try to scam you with outlandish charges, mine can also be found on the Play Store under the EZ Office brand: PDF Document Scanner
by Ape Apps. Mine has been on the market for years and has no subscriptions of any kind, and certainly no $70 IAP.
I am just putting this out there as sort of a PSA, since it seems Google Play is now referring duped customers over to me. I just want to make it clear that I have no involvement whatsoever in this pricing scam
