    Fraudulent eBook Websites

    Not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but here goes:

    Basically, criminal enterprises are setting up websites purporting to sell ebooks or merchandise, but all the sites do is steal credit card numbers.

    I've seen similar stuff reported at the Sunbelt site, but not with ebooks. Yeesh.

    One thing all those screenshots have in common is generic text and stock photos that don't often relate to the products being sold. Several have obvious grammar errors of the type commonly seen on phishing site. Several have the headline, "What is ebook?"

    Be careful out there, folks.
