You won't see national filings at the WIPO website.  Well, there are listings of some of the application numbers for some of the states.  But don't rely on that for whether an application was filed or not filed.  Try espacenet at http://ep.espacenet.com/advancedSearch?locale=en_EP  
 
[2007/36] is the 36th week of year 2007.
 
If 30 months has passed, then you should be able to see all of the PCT stage documents on the WIPO site.  Are you using http://www.wipo.int/pctdb/en/search-adv.jsp to search for the PCT application?

Yes I'm using that as well as a paid search engine and the USPTO site as to look for any clue that a US patent is pending. I know they can legally put that after filling a WIPO PCT correct? But its been more then 30 months.
 
The latest notices are:
 
- International Preliminary Report on Patentability Chapter I (IPRP1)
 
- Written Opinion of the International Search Authority (WOSA)
 
and those were back around March.
 
I'm gathering you might be saying that the States listed in the National Phase entries don't have to be correct even at this point? I don't see US listed.
 
They have patent pending on their product and it may be federal fraud to have it as such given what I see (don't see) so far.
 
Any ideas? Is 30 months from WIPO PCT filing date a hard and fast rule?
 
Does this then exclude them from ever getting a patent in the US or do they have other options since they are filing fees, etc with current dates?
 
(Thank you)
