Hi'

I have just bought some software.
They are asking for my CID code to activate the software.
What do they mean ? Or is it a scam of some sort ?

Help needed

hi pat

when you say cid code, is this the security number on the back of a credit/debit card?

if so, and you paid for the software via credit/debit card then you could have likely already given the vendor those details already? and they may have possibly linked the software activation to your details?

what software did you buy? who from? and what details have you given out so far?

These are the emails back and forth. Yes I did give them my details from a barclaycard.

ah! I don't believe it's anything to do with credit card info at all.

I think they're asking you to run a mt4 file. this file will unlock the mt4 software you've purchased, look for a file called showmycid.exe or it could be also named showmycid ex4, this believe this is what they want you to run. can't say how safe that is though, should be ok?? :D

Thanks guys.
They have sent another email

Dear Sir,

Request a CID is not a SCAM. We need CID in order to activate your
licence in your computer. It's for us a protection of our system only.
That menas that the licence will work only on your computer.

Cheers


I have searched my PC but no sign of their file.
I may be making a mistake but am letting them remotely install the programme.
Fingers crossed they are honest.

have they done yet?

did you look in any of the emails they sent you, it may be an attachment you haven't seen, haven't downloaded yet, hence can't find it in a search.

try looking at any emails they've sent you before letting them loose on your pc.

good luck :cheesy:

Have you asked them what and where a CID code is or should be found ?

it's not something that is found, it is a code drawn from the pc itself, he should have been sent a file that will read this code, he then sends it to them, this then unlocks the mt4 indicator and locks it to pats pc. it looks to be straight forward except pat appears to lack the file to do the reading, or any coherent instruction on the retrieving of the cid for the licensing.

I think I may have solved the problem by downloading something called Winrar to download it into.
What a palaver just to download a bit of software. It was a .rar file originally.

I think CID stands for computer identification code

Oh dear
Looks like I have been conned.
No sign of any software appearing.
I will phone barclaycard tomorrow if nothing appears today
