To all users from Nigeria

We will no longer support users from Nigeria.

Question: Why?

Because the ratio of legit users versus spammers who just uses our service to send spam/scam mails is very high.

8 of our servers are already taken offline because of those spammers.

You might have noticed that I am not always around here at the forum in the past few days because our time and energy is being wasted in tracking and verifying accounts of suspected spammers instead of monitoring our servers and making our service better.

Our PayPal account was terminated because we received too many chargebacks and disputes coming from hacked PayPal and Credit card accounts used by users from... yes its Nigeria.


Question: Can I still use my account?

We are already blocking Nigerian IPs on our Demo server so that means demo users can no longer use our service.

If you have a premium account and you are still not getting the "bandwidth limit reached" error then good for you because it means that you can still use your account. Just don't let anyone use your account or computer specially if it is your friend who loves to spam.

If you are getting the "bandwidth limit reached" error then you need to look for a new vpn provider. We will no longer restore your account no matter what you do.


Question: Can I still upgrade my account?

Yes, you can still upgrade your account but if you have a spammer friend then it is likely that your account will also be terminated with no refunds. I RECOMMEND TO NOT UPGRADE YOUR ACCOUNT ANYMORE IF YOU ARE FROM NIGERIA.

Question: Why don't you just block those users found spamming?

That is actually what we are doing. We are checking thousands of accounts everyday. If we found a spammer then we automatically suspend that account. And if that user uses your computer then that means that you know the spammer and you are probably spamming too so it is only logical to also suspend your account. Verifying thousands of accounts is very time consuming that is why we no longer want to support users from Nigeria so we can focus more on making our service better.


Question: Why don't you just block all of Nigerian IPs?

Because adding IPs on the firewall just adds more load to the server. Besides we still have some Nigerian users who are not using our service to spam.


Question: So what is the real point of this post?

This post is made to deter all Nigerian users from using our service. If you still want to use our service then you need to know the risks. If your account was linked to your spammer friend although you are not spamming then your account will be terminated also and we will not restore your account anymore.


Question: I am not a spammer but I really want to use your VPN, what should I do?

Do not risk your money in upgrading your account since it is likely to be suspended anyway. So take my advice find a new vpn provider. There are many VPN providers out there so please move on.

Those this means people that are not spammer can still upgrade after exhausting there previous account if they are not spammer and not in any way have a spammer friend...

Hey men just delete all spammers account and block their MAC address. Very simple. I dont know why some Nigerians like to spam. I'm not a Nigerian but I work in Nigeria as an expatriate worker and I use your service and of course, I dont spam. So I hope you wont punish the innocent users for the actions of the stupid. Not every user of pd proxy in Nigeria is a spammer. Thanks for your excellent services. This country has a lot of good people. I work with them. So sad that the actions of few spammers give it a general bad name.

In support to what Dukelord just said, just because a man eats snake in a village, it shouldn't then be referred that everyone in that village eats snake, that is hasty generalization, it is so sad however that some of your servers were shut down, its bad that spammers got on to you system as a platform for sending spam mails. I appeal please don't shut out the genuine people like us, I really enjoy PD Proxy and I must not tell a lie, for 8 days my account was down because I reformatted my system and the firewall blocked all ICMP connections, I never knew till yesternite. I felt sick without it for those 8days, I enjoy skyping with my sister in USA thru it, I enjoy the torrenting, I apply and search for jobs, I update my anti-virus and so many things, its been keeping me busy and happy after my relationship broke up, I found joy here, please be considerate and don't take it away please, for the sake of genuine us. at least find away to sell vouchers to genuine people, make sure your vendors are genuine. mark MAC address and ban them. We love PD Proxy please.

I really like or services and never violated it

Sir aED .....this is another face of making your service more solidly footed like your-freedom. I believe with your programing skills its gona be a piece of cake .......the freedom team once had this issue with nigerians but today they've mastered the spam issues and in control of the situation. Please! i know you want to spend more time making your services better instead of wasting your time solving spam issues ......please am asking for your unmeasurable skills in programing to checkmate this spam issue once and for all instead of punishing the sheeps along with the wolves ....thank you.

If you are comparing it to a tree. Then it is clearly not a single branch I would say 75% of that branch is infected which for us is more than enough reason for us to cut that whole tree.

We already stated our reasons. Our decision is final.

To all Nigerians just use your freedom because it is better just like you said. Dont waste your time using our service because we will just block your accounts.
