Freebooks1.com Scamming liars. STAY AWAY Internet
As a grad student with limited funds, I was looking for a copy of a text to download. I found it in pdf, which is how texts like these ( usually public domain) are offered free online.
I clicked to download, then after,hey never told me there would be a password.
Because I was desparate to get this text, I agreed to fill out a "short survey" that would take "seconds" then I would be given the password. I thought I would give them something ( my shoppinr preferences) in exchange for something -- a pdf dowload of a text. Twenty-five minutes later, seething, (because you always click to the next page, thinking it will be the last) I reached a screen where I had to choose two offers before I could finish. When I clicked "continue" to skip I was taken to a page where my only option was to choose FOUR offers.
Totally frustrated at this point, I went to email them. Wrote out a decent email, then clicked send.....THEY DO NOT HAVE EMAIL SET UP, probably so all of their pissed off users won't be able to contact them.
The worst thing is that they have my email address now and my inbox will probably be flooded with offers.
I consider this theft of my time. I agreed to do something in order to receive something. I did my share.
GOT NOTHING FROM THEM. STAY AWAY FROM THIS HORRIBLE WEBSITE.
