There seems to be a new pirate site where almost all my publisher's list is listed. Now, the tricky thing is NO ONE of those books that this site or others like it post, are free. Again, the books ARE NOT FREE! THERE ARE NO BOOKS AT ALL. I received this info from my publisher so I thought I'd pass it along to you. So, people, if you are trolling for free reads...all these sites do is get you to use a credit card in some way (for ID or so-called correct routing of your "free book" to you). Then they have all your info. And will drain your card or ruin your credit. Read on.

"( <> , aka, UrBookDownload, states they are a search engine: quote-*This filename has been transmitted via an external affiliate, we can therefore furnish no guarantee for the existence of this file on our servers. <> matches keywords, searched from 3rd-party sites, to affiliate-networks offering unlimited access to licensed entertainment content. <> allows visitors, otherwise looking for free-content to enjoy more for less.-end quote

They do NOT have any books, they are merely redirecting you to pay sites operated by Fang Media doing business as Digital KO LLC. In other words, this was not a pirate site as we initially thought. They are known to charge your credit card that you are required to enter in order to register and make it very hard to stop you from getting your money back. Apparently, this company hides it's business practices as a pirate site. None of us were willing to compromise our credit cards to find out if they truly are pirates. 

There are many of those sites like we were just discussing. The buy on Amazon link leads to amazon (note the release date; it's proof they are feeding from third party sites). The others lead to Tzar and other Media(listed in that other email) to insert your credit card info. None of those sites has any books; they are a search engine site and, if you look on WhoIs, you'll see they were all recently registered. It's a quick up site that allows them to get a % if someone buys via link on their site. 

Remember this: No one with any brains should be stupid enough to give a CC, but to those that do, so glad they think paying out 2-35 bucks is worth trying to pirate-goggle the reviews. 

So, readers, be aware and beware that you are paying fees that are uncalled for plus once those companies have you credit cardt#, you may as well cut up your card. You are officially TOAST!"

Readers, get your reading material the old fashioned way. Buy it or borrow from a library! A freebie ain't worth your credit getting dinged or your computer getting a virus.
