Worldwide Rebates Purposely losing portions of rebate San Diego California

My issue with Worldwide Rebates is that they "conveniently" lost the software upgrade proof documentation. They had a scanned pdf for me to see that showed everything (including envelope) that they had "supposedly" received. However, it was missing the approved documentations that proved I had previously owned another form of software that competed with this product's purpose/use.
I feel this is a scam because my friend and I had purchased the same product from the same place, same time (I even helped prepare his rebate since I was so successful in the past with mine, which means I have the scanned documentation as well). His proof of software upgrade was also "conveniently" not included in the envelope, according to their email informing him of the inability to process the upgrade rebate. This was the same email that I had received regarding my rebate.
I have tried to contact this Worldwide Rebate company at the 888# given to me by a representative from their company who replied back from my original concerned email to their customer service email address. When I try to talk to the Operator it starts to ring and then I get an error message that this call cannot be completed.
Oddly enough, this product had two different rebates one for the product and one upgrade rebate. The other rebate (not upgrade related) was processed in a timely manner and paid out. I have already received my check and so has my friend. We are just both frustrated with not being able to get proper customer service on the rebates that "supposedly" missing the proof of software upgrade. The automated solution given is that we could resubmit it with the missing documentation, but the documentation is no longer in our hands. It WAS sent.
