Dear All Netizens and Readers,
It has come to my knowledge that several websites have been purportedly offering free downloads of my ebooks available at Kobobooks.com(and its affiliated online stores) and Amazon.com(and its affiliated online stores), based on the cover art displayed.
The formats available range from pdf, txt, kindle, mp3 etc. I have never released anything on mp3, so someone must be stretching one’s imagination a bit too far.
The other readable formats are plausible except that when one attempts to download my titles, instead of the said formats being downloaded i.e. pdf, txt, kindle, mobi, an exe file is readied for download into the receiver device. It is a phishing attempt to infect the receiver device with a virus.
So, my advice to all is if you intend to acquire my ebook titles(under author name ‘Dominae Primus’), please do so legally from Amazon.com, Kobobooks.com and other legal ebook retail sites.
Do not attempt to download free ebooks from any dubious sounding free sites especially those which were recently launched. These are phishing sites that will do you harm and a lot of inconvenience. Most phishing sites masquerading as free ebook download sites commenced operations around the first quarter of 2014.
I am disappointed that some parties are attempting to pass off their nefarious schemes under my name (Dominae Primus) and the online retailers(Kobobooks.com and Amazon.com) that I am associated with. I have no contact with free ebook download sites for my commercially released titles unless stated otherwise.
Only Project Gutenberg hosts 5 non commercial titles of mine which were made available globally since 2003.
Thank you for your understanding. Stay prudent and safe in the cyber highway.
