Default Bios Password Warning! ***READ BEFORE ASKING FOR HELP!!***

If you've come here looking for help unlocking a master password or a clear BIOS dump for your laptop, be warned that a few low-life people may attempt to SELL you the password or the BIOS dump file. That is against site policy! I have weeded out most of these people, but sometimes they come back with alternate names and it takes a little time to catch them.

If you create a thread for BIOS help and someone sends you a private message offering services for money to unlock your BIOS, DO NOT RESPOND TO THE PERSON AND PLEASE REPORT IT TO ME IMMEDIATELY!!!!!!!! If you are referred or sent a link to a site outside this site, DO NOT participate or click on any link they send you, and again, please report it immediately!! DO NOT GIVE THE PERSON ANY MONEY UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE!! This site is about free help and making the tech community a stronger place. If you're patient enough, someone will help you in the thread you created at no cost. If you're in a hurry, there's a lot of these same scamsters that sell passwords on ebay and other venues.....Use those venues if you just can not wait, atleast you will have some buyer protection, here you have none!

Some tips to avoid getting hosed by one of these idiots:

1) If they want you to communicate outside this site (skype, email, etc); IT IS A SCAM!

2) If they send links to sites/URL's other than this site; IT IS A SCAM!

3) If they want any kind of payment (bitcoin, paypal, or gift cards); IT IS A SCAM!

Common sense will avoid most of these issues....but help protect the community and report this to the staff immediately!
