    Welcome to iPhone Forums!

    When it‘s locked to someone else‘s iCloud ID, there‘s no bypass. It‘s not possible to get rid of iCloud‘s activation lock without damaging the iPhone. If possible, find out the previous owner of this device, and ask him to remove this iPhone from his iCloud account and from Find my iPhone. Only then will you be able to use it. Otherwise it will be a useless brick.

    I‘ve removed the site you mentioned in your post. There are quite a few scam sites, promising to remove iCloud‘s Activation Lock. As mentioned before, this is not possible without damaging the iPhone.
