I was very active on that resource like 15 years ago entirely anyway. I do not know what is now here, but I am still getting a lot of newsletters from them absolutely and I do believe that something could really be worthy here on HTML, CSS, JS and so on.
Sent me an mail containing that I can download an ebook bundle which consisted 8 ebooks. I opened the link to download it. It took me to the website's cart page, I verified the website url and SSL certificates the reviewed the cart.
There were 8 ebooks as it was told in the email, I then checked the price. The price for every ebook showed the actual price as it was without any offer but in the total the whole price was deducted to $0.00, I proceeded to checkout.
While checking out completly and before proceeding to the download page it asked me about some information, consisting of email AND CARD DETAILS. I, thinking that its just a formality, provided the details of my card (luckily the one that didn't had any balance). Then I was on the same page after submitting the form and the page showing some error that my card details were wrong, I tried again (for 6 times in total) and it kept on showing the same error message. At last I left the hope and closed the page. That was not it. I recived the call from my bank's head office and they said that last night there was an attempt for payment for the merchant 'Site Point Premium' California for 6 times but it didn't succeded due to insufficient balance (luckily). They have called me to confirm if was real and not frogery.
I trusted this website until this. How can one charge if it is free of cost and when on checkout I am told that the balance is $0.00. It is a clear cheating with the customers.
Obtrusive popup window 3 seconds into viewing their 'landing page' that you cannot get rid of without accepting their 'free book' and all the malware that comes with clicking on links you did not initiate on a web page.
Site showed an alert message at the top of the screen saying "urgent message" which turned out to be an advert for something or other.
It then greyed out the page and showed a full screen advert
