Fast Direct Download / Scam

United States Review updated:
Contact information:
I recently registered on a site called "FAST DIRECT DOWNLOAD" with a friend's credit card.

I was told to register for usd 5, after paying, I received an e-mail saying it was for a THREE DAY TRIAL. I sent them several e-mails to complain, but received no response from them. Two days ago, they charged the credit card usd 39 again and they said I have to cancel. I did and up till now I'm still waiting for a confirmation e-mail.

My friend's bank refused to cancel the credit card. So this a very big scam.

You're lucky you got 3 days. I paid the $5 and never got an email. I never got access to the site. I sent them inquiries through their support form every 12 hours for the next 2 days, and never got a response.

after dealing apparently with fast direct, I was transferred to some "megapass" web (full of naked girls). They never sent me an email confirming and now they've charged me 50 pounds that i didnt authorize!

I just signed up, I have not been able to log in, I have not got a response from customer service. I tried my passwords with the stupid porn sites and crap they gave me, they worked... all but the site that I signed up for originally, fastdirectdownload. I will definitely be sending their website to IC3, NW3C, and the FBI's internet fraud department.

FastDirectDownload is definitely a scam..
I signed up for the 3 days trial but there was no way for me to login to their website. And the email with the registration information given to me was to some page called MegaDownloadPass. I have emailed FastDirectDownload repeatedly and it has already been 12 hours but there was no reply.
The most suspicious thing is, when I signed up yesterday (or today cause it was 12AM), it says that the promo for $4.95 3 day trial will end on 10th November yet I just went to the website and the date actually changed to 11th November. Sounds fishy? Go to their website and take a look at the sign up page I doubt it will not be 11th November anymore after today.
They are obviously trying to cheat people's money so beware and do not sign up with them.

Ofcourse it's a scam. But why do you wanna go in there anyway? You see it's so obvious that they are trying to cheat people, in the search results page, they dont even give the right file size, you're trying to download a 4MB file and it says 700MB at 1024KB/s speed, crazy isnt it? Yeah better report those MF's to the authorities. And btw, they always change their website names.

Financial rip offs are not the only thing that this site indulges in. Have you ever tried a search on a torrent that doesn't exist? It will return an exact hit, not just one hit but several. If this site is not accurate in one case then it holds that they wouldn't stop at just false positives but go as far as you have experienced and rip one off financially.
