The "fast download" scam seems to be one of the biggest internet advertising scams. There are legitimate downloading servers if you know where to look but there are also many that say "fast free download here" and once you go there you get "you must register or login to download". So I register thinking its "free" giving my name, email address and home address then step two is "what type of account?" meaning you must PURCHASE/SET UP an account to proceed. I choose the "7-day limited trial" pay my $4 only to find out later I paid $12 because they gave me "extra software" I didn't even ask for! Then I try downloading and find out its torrent dowloading instead of direct downloading... I mean really where does the crap end? I send them email and no reply.
