iPod Music Downloads - Beware of Scam Websites!

Mar 22, 2008
Among seemingly endless options for iPod music downloads on the web, there are genuine websites and there are outright scams. Fortunately, the latter are less common. They primarily aim at the first-time users, who are just exploring the option of iPod music downloads on the Internet and in all the excitement are likely to part with their money easily.

Any user with more or less common sense understands that free iPod music websites can potentially be dangerous, and it is stupid to expect super-service and full protection without paying a penny. You know that if your computer gets a virus, or the song you downloaded is of lousy quality, the fault is basically yours for not caring enough when choosing the website for iPod music downloads.

But the story is different if you are paying for your music. Membership services for unlimited iPod music downloads are built with the intention of providing huge databases of media files in a safe and secured download environment. Unfortunately, not all are great and known for reliability. While most paid sites are well run, several of them are plain scams.

One of the examples are some sites, which claim to have an enormous number of iPod music downloads (as well as other iPod media), nearing a hundred million. However, when you try to see what genre of music exactly they offer, you see nothing on their site. Some of these only have a small database of less than a few thousand files.

Some of these sites do not have the capabilities to facilitate the downloading at all. What they give you are download links to several thousand iPod music downloads. You hardly have any choice to find what you desire and for $40, that is not the kind of great service you would expect.

Others are not the most professional sites I would go for. They provide low quality music and the selection of songs is too limited and genres too narrow. Some simply take your money and run away without giving you any download links. Yet there are a few I tested that are so poorly maintained that they run out of server resources really quick. The worst lot I tried out even charge me for some filesharing software that belongs to freeware. There are many horrible flaws that I do not have time to share.

So, a word of advice is to do some homework and check out different music downloading sites before joining any. Start reading up review blogs and forums on iPod music downloads for more information.
