Graboid.com is a site that publishes "movie viewing" software and, whether true or false, claims to do so legally.  The facts of the matter are that Graboid charges users a subscription fee, depending upon how many gigabytes of bandwidth said users have "watched" in a given month, yet Graboid.com also claims not to host any videos themselves, but simply links to sites that do.  

The fraud here is that Graboid is essentially saying that they are charging users for using up gigabytes that Graboid itself is not losing, since they claim they do NOT host the videos.  Either they are lying, or they are profiting from something without the risk of losing a single cent's worth of their own bandwidth except to keep their fraudulent site going for probably less than 15 dollars a month depending on hosting plans.

The free trial only allows you a few thousand gigabytes of transfer before they ask for your payment information.  That is roughly three films, none of which they paid for or hosted, and are possibly not legal (depending on the film(s) in question) to be distributed this way in the first place.  If Graboid.com's FAQ and terms of service are to be believed, they are stealing not only from the pockets of users, but from the actual hosts of these films.
