When vistiting certain websites, it says not availible in this country

Posted

Hello,

My question is; I would like to use swagbucks but it says it's not available in The Netherlands (I know you can't fix this), but is there some option that you can change so my country is changed. I don't have any problem with the fact that the USA uses a different kind of money. Please respond so I know I have to wait for swagbucks to become also applicable in The Netherlands. Thanks, Floriox

Unfortunately, it appears yes. There are ways you can spoof what country you are from, but legally and functionally this probably won't work.

(first, you should upgrade your Browser Immediately to Firefox 14.0.1, as the version you are running is very old and out of date, meaning it is open to security holes).

I'm not sure what you mean by swagbucks. however, if this is some sort of internet currency thing, in all likely hold there are legal reasons it is not available in any other country. the wisest thing to do is contact the company for more information.

Question owner

(I will update)

Well I did contact them but they replied with a pre-written e-mail. So I guess that's the only other thing I could do?!
