I dunno about anyone else, but my scammer-sense tingles any time I'm asked for a CC number if something's free.

In case anyone is still interested in [deleted], it might be useful to know that someone on the site or connected with it is using other people's names to upload eBooks to the site. At least, they did so with mine (apparently lifting it wholesale from Amazon reviews), and I don't see whom to contact to change this.
We may not know who they are, but we have one of their sockpuppets here... maybe stevenreed034 can help you with this.

Whenever I see something that seems too good to be true I figure it probably is. And like someone else said if it's free then why does it need a cc#? I mean there are other sites that offer free ebooks and you don't require a cc# to purchase the free books from those sites (like Ellora's Cave for example).

Did they start spamming onread or something? Last night they were merely posting idiotic posts about kindles.

This character appeared out of nowhere, made some unintelligible posts, gave a couple of "yays" to some pirate sites and was quickly "disappeared" by the mods (I assume). I thought about ratting him out but he became an unperson before I had to bother. The mods are wise.

I must have gone to bed before he posted about the pirate sites.

Probably...it was 12:30 or 1:00 AM Eastern time. There was no trace of him by this morning. He "was" post number 17 on this thread.

Yeah, I went to bed a little after 1am eastern. He'd only had 3 posts at that time, and they were inane posts about kindles.

Inane posts...they were a bit like words in a blender. Made no sense to me.

It must have been a little later when he did the pirate site "yay" posts.

The one sorta made sense, although the info was way out of date.

He posted to this thread, saying, in broken English, that it was a good and safe site.

Yes, that was it exactly...post #17. I assume the mods nuked it and your post slid forward to become #17. Using Dr. Brown's whisper from Back to the Future, "Erased from existence..."

Good thing, too.

Any site that is asking for your credit card details for a "free" book that they cannot have the rights to in the form of an executable just can't be legitimate.

They failed the basic test: they had Harry Potter.

Less "wise" than having the same nose for ordure as you, but with access to the necessary buttons for disposing of its source.

Cheers,

You have to ask yourself, "Why would someone put time and money into creating a website and stealing content just to give me free books?" What a saint that person must be...well, except for the stealing content part.
