I always feel like all these anti-virus companies are self fulfilling. They have a perfect reason to spread virus and spyware, so you continue to buy them.

IMPORTANT!

Be aware of this before purchasing.

are ALL the same company and are scamming some of the honest people that have followed all of their rebate requirements.

As part of the FINE PRINT - they are not required to issue you a replacement check if 1st one is lost etc. even though it hasn't been cashed.

Do yourself a big favor and *RESEARCH THIS ONLINE BEFORE EVEN CONSIDERING BUYING A PRODUCT WITH A REBATE THROUGH THIS COMPANY.

A class action lawsuit needs to be started to stop this company from continuing to not fulfill their obligations.

Just think how many millions of dollars a company like this could make by not issuing checks, saying submission is approved then never mailing check.

They wait (hoping you will forget rebate as it has been so long) to contact them saying check never arrived then resubmitting and waiting months only to not have it show up again, try 3rd time many more months wait again and same results. They also have no way of proving they actually sent checks despite the fact they can see check was never cashed and also refuse to transfer you to a supervisor when calling and give you all kinds of invalid excuses.

status-now.com is an OBVIOUS SCAM and needs to have a full investigation and audit to prove they are actually sending checks... they also refuse to send rebate via PayPal etc..

Contact the product manufacturer and store selling item (appears best to go direct to website and contact Kaspersky there as phones are answered in the Philippines) and let them know the 3rd party fulfillment center they have chosen to use for rebates is not fulfilling their obligations and this urgently needs to be addressed.

info@us.kaspersky.com

www.usa.kaspersky.com

Remember if you paid with a credit card call card company and ask them to do a CHARGE BACK. *Unfortunately American Express will only go back 90 days yet if someone buys something on eBay etc the buyer can go back 6 MONTHS to initiate a Chargeback. :/

www.ripoffreports.com

www.complaintsboard.com

www.bbb.org

Some other options as is post on Social Media etc..

See another Kaspersky product on SD and you also haven't received rebate then WARN OTHERS!

This must be stopped ASAP and if enough of us speak up and post your truth then it hopefully will.

*and if the likeliness you also have to go through the same hassle I still am on a rebate from last year this Kaspersky article info should concern you.

Update - Called Fry's corporate number 4th time and was transfered to Ruth 408-487-4500 who handles these issues and she said they will email me a check ASAP and ding the acct of rabte company. This also failed as Ruth says a picture of the items you sent to rebate company is not a copy. I've never in my life had such a run around trying to get your money as I have this one. *As of 9/11/17 still no check.

Diane the supervisor at the rebate company is a true work of art and could care less if you get your rebates and even though checks they claim were sent were never cashed they refuse to reissue or pay what they owe.

Putin expects Americans to infect their own PCs with his botnet AND pay to do so.

And some Americans are dumb enough to do it!

You would think the US government would invest in creating their own anti-virus software.

I have done over 50 Kaspersky rebates and I have gotten every single one of them. My best advice would be to read the instructions carefully. If they say send in the entire bottom box flap then send the entire bottom box flap. If they say cut out just the UPC and affix it to the rebate sheet with tape then you do EXACTLY that - don't staple it because it will be denied. Pay close attention to the details in the rebate steps because any deviation and they have grounds for denying you. Also, I take a screenshot of the rebate mailing address and use that on the envelope. Less likely to fat finger the address and have it get lost in the mail. I used to pay for certified delivery so I could prove that the rebate got to the rebate center but I stopped doing that when every single one of my rebates were consistently being honored. Last thing, when the rebate says it will take 8 to 10 weeks to get your check they aren't kidding. I have never gotten it sooner than 8 weeks and most of the time the check shows up at exactly 10 weeks. Hope this info helps.

Should probably note that the US government has now banned this East Infection.

I personally actually like kaspersky. It's well-designed and easy to use. Other antivirus gave me so many issues. It's been also tested to detect virus at a high reliability rate by testing/reviewing companies, which is reassuring. With that said, with so many free after rebate deals, I wouldn't be surprised if they were making money in some shady way. After all, if they keep giving out their software for free so much, they have to make money elsewhere...

I followed their instructions exactly and even printed rebate form a 2nd time and cut out address and taped it to envelope. As stated, rebate WAS approved however they never sent me my check and they also said when I called the check was never cashed.

You have been EXTREMELY lucky to get your rebates (or you work for the rebate company or know someone who does perhaps?)

This company needs an audit and to be held responsible for their negligence.
