    I understand that everyone is trying to make money but you know what , people trying to make money aggressively , basically scammers DESERVE to get banned completely from google search . I just wanted to edit a PDF and I typed PDF editor free , a site popped up ranked first saying FREE PDF Editor Online. I loaded up my pdf , finished editing it and guess what , it says "you can have to create an account " Im like ok and then right when I click finish creating the account , it asks me which plan I would like to choose , all of them paid plans , no free options anywhere. I basically lost 30 mins of my life . Anyway the site has already been posted on on the google forums and reported .

    See I dont have a problem with people buying backlinks , views for youtube , or anything like that to accelerate their growth BUT I think google should Invest more into hiring a team to deal with scammers because with every good there is bad , if something can be used for good , it can also be used for bad . I would like to take a moment and say fuck you from the bottom of my heart to ALL aggressive money making strategists on the internet and I hope you fail and hopefully fined by police . And again by agressive I mean the thing I just described.

    Back in 2008 , I wanted to download a crack for something and I watched a youtube video , i clicked the link to download it , asked me to complete a survey I did , i gave them my phone # and guess what , for a week they sent me a text once per day charging ME 5$ for it .

    Dude, you know you can use OpenOffice and export to .pdf, for free, or use FoxIt PDF Editor.

    Sorry to break it to you but you suck at using internet. I didn't mean this as an insult, just an observation.

    You cant really suck at using the internet . Being good a user in general is all about reading all the options and knowing what they mean . People who are considered not good are people who arent used to the way things are designed and because of that they don't even bother reading everything .

    I like to consider myself pretty decent when it comes to computers and the internet . I've been self employed for 2 years now ( working from a computer, using the internet ) and I didn't even know this site existed , everything I came up with was things that I thought of and the majority of them worked .

    Like I said I just wanted the fastest possible way to edit this pdf and from past experience I knew that google has a few working online editors but I didnt have them bookmarked , neither did I remember them .

    * A scammy PDF website . You cant say free and then literally ask people to choose which plan they want LOL . This almost falls under the category of a money scam , it is almost the same as claiming you have cancer , even though you dont , getting donations for it.

    I knew you won't use the online PDF anymore. Here's the link that must have showed up as the first link. https://get.adobe.com/reader/
    It's free and conditions applied. :D:cool: Don't forget to rate the application. Your comment matters to Internet community.

    Maybe people who fall for stupid shit should be put in jail? Didn't you also say you were looking for a crack back in 2008 and some website butthurt you?
    If you are trying to crack software and get FREE services, maybe consider getting some real software. It seems to me you have wanted something for nothing at least since 2008.

    It'd be a scam if they billed you and didn't do what you expected.

    Well you got what you deserved, I have no sympathy for you, you download a crack, denying the owner income and got scammed.
