It does quite clearly state that adding a credit card number is not required.
So what's the problem? :-)
A phishing site is one were the displayed url and the actual url are
different. This site doesn't do this, so it's not a phishing site.
It may just be incompetent over the paypal link. ;-)
Seems a lot to pay for PDF files too...
Why not email the site and ask them about the paypal logo problem?
I'm a IT manager.
There is a scam going about (especially on ebay), selling ebooks where the
buyer pays and gets a pdf file full of basic information that anyone could
have picked up for free on the Internet.
Seemingly a person sets up a 'store' and uses the ebook supplier to make
themself a nice looking web site and the main store sends the buyer the pdf.
After doing a WHOIS on the domain name it appears that the owner of
eBooksAboutEverything.com is hiding their name and contact details.
Something a company or trader is not suppose to do...
But this may just be more incompetence.
If worried don't buy. But I would email them and express my concerns.
If they are genuine and are just incompetent then they will address these
200 Million years in the making...
