    Default Question on UUID numbers

    Is there any security risk to pay 8 bucks for one of those sites to add you to a developer account? Is there any risk of giving away your UUID?

    There is no security risk, but it defies Apple's developer policy for anyone to ask you to pay for them to add you.

    The big issue is, you pay them to add you, they give you a beta. The beta deactivates and they disappear - you're left with a brick.

    Alli's right. They're scammers and the nature of a scammer is to scam everyone. I'd never trust them.
