Platte Media / MBS out of UK

Unread postby Maik » March 12th, 2009, 5:40 am

The pay-for-porn company Platte Media, formerly MBS (Micro Bill Systems), has stopped operating in the UK - and did so in February, according to an email from the chief executive officer of Platte International, Stanly Hiwat, and a statement in Parliament.

That's going to be a huge relief for families and people around the country who have been plagued first by pop-up notices originating from MBS, and then Platte, which alleged that they had accessed its content without paying; the only way then to remove the popups (short of an extensive rewind and reformat, or some antivirus tools) was to pay Platte/MBS. In some cases, legal letters threatening bailiffs were sent.

Shades of Al Capone, except it was the VATman? Hopefully they have folded, period.
