Here are some basic facts: The site is run by a person named Jody Sanders. This person (possibly with the help of others) has been downloading PwnageTool releases and modifying them to look like he/she made them. And they do a half-assed job, leaving the help files and credits unchanged. This person has been charging £29.99 for jailbreaks and unlocks, which according to Convertbot is about $44.18. I don't know about you, but to me that seems like more than the $0.00 the Dev Team charges. For the last few days, this person was advertising that he/she had an unlock available for baseband 5.11.07 (the most recent one that geohot just managed to unlock). People who purchased the application were told that the software was in development. Curiously, right after geohot announced that he would be making his 5.11.07 unlock available on November 4th, iPhone Unlock UK (as well as many other scam sites just like it) sent out an email to its customers saying that they would have a 5.11.07 unlock available on... guess when? November 4th. What a strange coincidence. iPhone Unlock UK's software theft isn't limited just to PwnageTool. A look at the "Application Package" available on their website shows that they have stolen the popular, free DVD ripping software Handbrake (for Mac) and are passing it off as their own. They're also charging users for the ability to use emoji, and to record video with their iPhone (cough, Cycorder is free, don't pay for it, cough).

People are stealing free software, modifying it without permission, and selling it to people who are unaware that there is a free alternative. The best way to combat these lowlife scammers is to spread the word about them. Tweet about this, post it on Facebook, write a blog post on it, whatever you can do.
