I accidentally typed http://www.opeoffice.org in my browser when trying to download openoffice.org software. I was sent to a site mascarading as open office and advertising free downloads. But they persisted in asking for membership payment.

The cheapest payment was for 3 year membership with $49.xx crossed out and $11.xx listed instead. I finally caved in and chose to pay this and gave them my credit card info. Without further confirmation of the price they told me my card had been charged $49.xx

I never actually went to their site since it finally dawned on me that I was being scammed.

If anyone wants to investigate further, here is an edited version of pages I was directed to during this process. (I only removed the trailing parts starting with ? some of which probably had my credit card info, email etc.)
