The website Mega Ebook located at http://www.megaebook.cc is a fraudulent online bookstore operated by online scammers.
They start by saying you have won freebies from GOOGLE. You are then told to participate in an online quiz from Google then you are redirected to an online form to fill in your details after which you are taken to a payment page where you are required to enter your credit card information to claim the once free prize but not at a very negligible price of about $1.
Those who shop at the fraudulent website, which the owners claim is the world’s largest online bookstore, run the risk of their credit card information stolen and used fraudulently by the scammers operating the website.
We were unable to find out where Mega Ebook or where the owners are located. The information is not on their website, and they are hiding their domain name information by using a third-party service. It is necessary that when you are operating an e-commerce website where online users enter their personal and financial information, it is important that the website discloses all possible information about itself.
Online users who have used their credit card information on the fraudulent website are asked to contact their banks for help. Their banks should investigate, cancel the fraudulent transactions and refund their money.
The fraudulent website also hosts another scam, where it claims visitors can get a new iPhone X for only $1. But, this is just another method used by the scammers to trick potential victims into using their credit cards on the fraudulent website. If potential victims fall for the scam, their credit cards will be continuously charged randomly for different amounts.
