    You guys are great..Thanks for the heads up. My client just sent me a link to their site. The first thing I did after checking it out was search Alstrasoft on SP. Keep up the good work!

    Can't imagine so much anger on Alstrasoft (LOL), Well I dont blame you all, i just completed helping out my freind with the E-freinds-crap-script and manage to get it to run with a minimum bugs ...(more to go)

    But I can't help out reading on this post below:

    The toll free number is US number and they are in Singapore, faking the market to have a US brand sale.

    US must BAN Alstrasoft from Faking the US and the world market.
    You might want to be clear about what you say as I know this company do not exist in Singapore. Let say if you are "Right" they are in Singapore, you might want to post their office address, I'll be the first one to knock their door and I don't mind to help thoses people here that want "Justice".

    Remember, Singapore LAW is among top country in the world that having no-nonsense business law. If they are having a bogus business, the law love to know about it.

    Proof for what you asked us here. http://www.crunchbase.com/company/AlstraSoft

    Also, You may contact 2CO to get their address. Where I found a different Address in Singapore. For sure they are singapore based.

    But for sure, they are not US based. If they are US based, they are in great trouble for sure.

    Remember, Singapore LAW is among top country in the world that having no-nonsense business law. If they are having a bogus business, the law love to know about it.
    If this is true what you said. prove it with this bogus company.

    Dear Bytestor,

    Do you know that I can register with 2CO and accept payment online event I give them my home address which is not my real home at all? Same goes to Paypal and some others.

    Regards to the Toll Free number: 1888 6451648
    SG number is now 8 digits meaning if it not mobile phone just add “6” in front of the number. So, It’s [“6”6451648], sadly it been changed or terminated.


    I Agree they are in Singapore

    ---------------------------------------

    Hmmmm - "CSI" case works begin now!


    From "CrunchBase.com company profile"
    14 robinson road #13 00 far east finance building singapore 048545

    1) This is a Virtual Address not a their own Company Office (Rented, buy etc)
    Check here: Virtual Office (Look at the address)

    2) The Name "Alstrasoft" is not found and/or listed in the BIZFILE of Singapore. Meaning Not a registered business or company. Probably register under another business name. Good way to find out is "To whom you pay your Money to" is the best way to find the real name of the company. If payable to Alstrasoft eg. Paypal sales@alstrasoft then it will be much easier to answer the entire case.

    Example: I can set up a Online business by registering myself a Virtual Office (just to please customers - That I have a registered address - so it look like i have a company) and accept payment by PayPal or any other mode of payment without having to reveal my true company identity. Such as, where is my "Real Office that I work". Normally this will be in my house bedroom.

    Secondly, the Virtual Company do not require any business registration number to filled up in the application. This means that you do not need to have a "Legal" Registered Business or Company in Singapore to use this virtual office services. Frankly they don’t ask for it, I just call them up today to make inquiries.

    3) On the Legal point of view, If you running a Web Services such as Development Of Other Software (Including Software Maintenance) which classified as Web Design (SSIC Number 63129). Under the requirement of SSIC - Singapore Standard Industrial Classification (SSIC) code corresponding to your business activity, YOU MUST REGISTER it as a business. But do notice that some do take the risk by creating a Web Company without registering a business. Seems like “testing the water before jumping in”.

    So if you ask me if Alstrasoft a registered business, my answer is NO. Unless the name of the Software is "Alstrasoft" and it is not collecting payment under the name of Alstrasoft but another business name, then they are safe. It's seems the "Real name with a business registration number" will not be found unless they let everyone knows it, which they should if there are nothing to hide.

    4) On the Law point of view, if they never "con" or steal your money in anyway considering cheating and/or theft, you can't do much. If they are a registered business (I doubt so) that provide unjustified service etc, as a consumers, you can post your complain here. The Case. Frankly, these people take matter "too serious sometime" lol. Good place to complain. But if they are not registered, not sure they can help either.

    If cheating etc, go here: www.spf.gov.sg
    But, you MUST have all the relevant documentations and prove that convincing enough to be a case.


    So now, it’s all up to you what you want to do.


    Well that completes my CSI work.


    Good Luck.


    Ooops almost forgoten to say: If you all ask me personally as a freind. Knowing the so call company is somewhat do not exist, I will NOT buy from them. PERIOD.

    No offense Alstrasoft, you might want to re-think that, some of us do live in Singapore that lurking on the web with a brain and armed with legal knowledge. Seting up a Web business is easy but answering and servicing is never a businessman dream.

    Cheers!!!

    I think most of the reported issues could have been found by testing the demo (I assume they had a demo, otherwise buying just a list of features is non-sense). There are always big differences from what you imagine and expect from a package, what the developers intended and how the software really works.

    In this type of situation sometimes you can recover your money but you'll never recover additional costs as your own efforts and time spent with the project.

    When buying a script better test twice and report the bugs before paying so they fix it. There is no such thing as a perfect software - even windows needs bug-fixes and patches but some packages are ridiculous. You can blame them but you must also blame yourself and learn from this: you're the only one responsible for your success.

    Wow!! I'm glad I found this forum although I found this forum a little too late myself.


    I have two business owners that want to use Alstrasoft.

    OK I went ahead and installed the e-friends since my client already spent the money. I got the install done and the customer service people at alstrasoft did respond to some minor problems I had with the install. Let's see if they help with the problems that come up with their script.

    Their help dries up very quickly.

    I hate to be the odd-man out here, but Alstrasoft was actually pretty helpful.

    I had 4 help tickets and they helped with each one, although 2 tickets had be be resent in order to get a response.

    They sent me new scripts for the ones that I couldn't fix myself. They also helped me troubleshoot my own errors with my variables. Some of the problems were related to the shared hosting account I use and required a little tweeking, but considering that I'm am not a web designer by trade and I was able to get the sofware installed and working thus far is testement to E-Friends in itself.

    I help run a Urban Street DJ Web Radio in Miami, FL and I'm going to switch from using Ning.com to Alstrasoft.

    They're still security issues with E-Friends, So be careful but so far It works for me. It just requires a little extra paitence and effort. What else would you expect for only $280.00

    I'm starting the beta test now on www.thestreetsfm.com/friends

    The old ning site can be found at www.thestreetsfm.com

    Hi all,

    I wasn’t smart enough to do a research about this company before I bought the e-Friends software and paid for it $250 ( 5 days ago).
    I downloaded the software, unpacked it and followed their instruction to install it.
    First problem i got, when i ran the SQL script, the DB was created ok, but when i ran the zipdata script i got an error, in the script the Table was called zipData, while the table in the DB was named zipdata, at this point i did not think much , i thought it could be a glitch when they created this script, i fixed this issue and the DB was updated ok.
    2nd i uploaded the files to my Server and nothing worked.
    can not do much, when i try to create a new user even when i type the user name and press on check if available i get a message saying type a user name first...
    I thought i need first to login as admin and perform setup form ACP, but i could not get to the admin login page. I contacted Alstrasoft and they replied in few minutes asking for link to phpinfo.php on my site, i sent the link, waited about 12 hrs, then re-contact them some other person ( different name in the email) asked again for phpinfo link.. and i sent it again. While waiting for the reply. I decided to install the script on a test server, and i did, i bought few domains from Goddady and had free websites with them, so i installed the script on their server , and i got little further, i wasn’t able to login as admin, but i did create a new user, and was able to login as this user, but the script is so Buggy and unbelievably unstable... I could not use most of the functions.. I contacted Alstrasoft again and again and .... then i knew something wrong in here .. DUHHHHH, i goolged Alstrasoft and got here....

    ah well i guess this is a lesson for me, i will be much more careful in the future.
    Now i am stuck with this useless software, i don't have the choice but to try to make it work.
    If anyone can assist i will appreciate the Help.

    The URL main site:
    www.zbestworld.com
    the URL for the 2nd site :
    www.databasewizz.net/friends

    Thanks

    You got a cheaper price than I did.

    The software does indeed work and their customer service was helpful albeit slow. You may have to work with your hosting company and make sure they can support E-friends

    Actually, as you said, they are a bit slow, they contacted me and offered to install and setup the software at no extra charge. , I think they are trying to fix their reputation.....

    The thing is i host the site on my own dedicated server, and my server meet the requirements posted on their site.

    Anyway, i hope they will be able to get it running, meanwhile i already installed PHPizabi and trying it and if the e-Friends works i will compare both and decide which one to go with, so far i am impressed with what PHPizabi offers.

    Alstrasoft night mares!!!

    Hey its kinda funny now reading everything just wish i read this before i bought my scripts from alstrasoft ! But i have fixed most of their bugs and then modified their scripts to what i wanted, their videoscript gave me the most troubles no support from the crack head mike terry at alstrasoft and most of the complaints ive read i went thru repeat emails with required info they kept asking for and now they use another crook scammer to take your money WWW.SWReg.org google them and complaints or nightmares they are known for getting your credit card then doing unauthorized charges and they do this offer for back up registration its a scam u dont need it. WWW.SWReg.org makes it seem like your protected from buggy scripts and youd be able to get a refund if you had a problem well they are just as bad as alstrasoft a US based company thats ripping us off and protecting a scam company like alstrasoft
    And i started a website over WWW.SWReg.org and alstrasoft so please help warn consumers and post your complaints on there also
    WWW.BBBofEcommerce.com
    By the way maybe i should just open my own site and get paid to fix alstrasoft's scripts ive fixed most of their bugs and my main sites working
    if you have to just contact me i can install and fix thier bugs im not cheap but itll get fixed right! Oh let me clear this up i mean efriends and videoshare

    Thats kool how do you like phpizabi so far ? i have the same script havnt used it much yet but was thinkn of using it for the dating part of my site. I got alot of the efriends bugs worked out and same with videoshare it just takes alot of patience and messing with their buggy code ! I made a site to warn people also of alstrasoft and WWW.SWReg.org
    WWW.BBBofEcommerce.com every one needs to add their complaints there too the more complaints the more it will cost alstrasoft! And Warn other consumers by the way everyone beware of www.REVO.com its alstrasoft rebranded!!!!!!!!!!! Oh and i got the funniest email ive ever read from mike terry at alstrasoft i told them i wanted a refund and i wanted to get datecomms script if you only saw his responce he was saying datecomm stole their script from alstrasoft when there are so many people saying alstrasoft stole their scripts ! I dont think datecomm is the way to go with either people they dont have the scripting finished it seems incomplete no email area no pic comments cant change friends just lots of missing needed parts for todays times. My efriends is more my own scripting then alstrasofts now same with videoshare. but then again its been hundreds of hours redoing their crap! Anyways if you make a complaint here please visit WWW.BBBofEcommerce.com i made that site just for swreg and alstrasoft i wanted to warn the consumer !
    Later Cody i bet everyone is wanting to see my working efriends lol ill see how many requests i get first ok im a smart azzzz but hey i got to laugh at it cuz i went thru the same night mare as everyone else here
    maybe i should start selling the fixed verson of efreinds and videoshare with real support lol

    I bought both AltraSoft and DateComm (http://www.datecomm.biz, www.customizedscripts.com), both of them are same, altrasoft is selling its efriends script under a different name - DAteComm

    they are also claiming to clone facebook, orkut, hi5 and whatever, I do not think there scripts are going to be worth while.

    STAY AWAY FROM ALTRASOFT, STAY AWAY FROM DATECOMM

    thanks for the heads-up on e-friends. as for phpizabi, i think it is no longer supported due to internal conflicts within its ranks.

    Cool thread, I was just looking at their video sharing software at $300 and thought I would Google AlstraSoft first and found this thread. I will try some other place instead of AlstraSoft.
