I searched for a music download site for my son who got an mp3 player for x-mas. When I realized how many sites there were out there I asked Jeeves how to select a site. This brought me to the mp3 download review site. At the top of their review list is 24/7 and this is what they say:
"Downloads is the newest service we have reviewed, and it seems new is good! As of right now, this is simply the best service available, and the one all of us at MP3 Download Review use. Featuring File Finder technology, this software scans the internet for your music, movies, or software, and returns only the fastest downloads. We found more sources for music than we could even hope for, and the strongest core of movie clips (Hollywood movies, as well as filterable adult movies).
Our favorite feature was the fact that you could download unlimited content, without uploading ANYTHING. This software won't even allow you to upload! Why is this good? So far all the lawsuits placed on file sharers were for uploading music, not downloading!
The big surprises of this site were the amazing download and search speed, the huge library of content, and a bunch of surprise utilities they give you to help you download, burn, and play all your content. They also outdo the other services by protecting you from downloading Spyware and Viruses, and even giving you Free pop-up blocking software.
The reading and tutorials were good, some sites have slightly better tutorials, but tutorials are the least important feature of a downloading site in our opinion. Tech support was amazing, we tested it out, and one of their support people responded to us in record time.
Right now 24/7 Downloads is our overall winner, and the service all of us use. If something changes, or someone creates a new top service, we will let you know."
This is dated July 04. I went to 24/7 directly from the provided link. The homepage looks great and has tabs for music, movies etc. However, one you sign on (pay your fee) you go to a members only place where there is no link to get to any movie or music sites. Even though I created an account, I cannot enter the music site without being asked to ceate an account all over again.
The help section consists of one page with one line: "We are currently re-writing all of this info. Thank you for your patience."
It is entirely clear to me that this is a scam site. I am sorry for the many people who are following the same steps I took today and get ripped of.
Merry Christmas 24/7, whoever you are.
