SUBMIT A COMPLAINT

Scribdscribd forcing your company into my private space, requesting my personal info without any request whatsoever from my side

5th February 2017. I was on a South African Government web page, and SCRibd; were 'dropping in' with comments, including requests for passwords, info. Initially, I thought it was part of the Government page. Then I decided I was not comfortable, I was battling to remove the offending requesting words, eventually I was closing and reopening the web page. However, they/you now have information, obtained illegally and unethically, (obtained by drop ins on another hosts page); I searched for somewhere other than Scribd to report this too and ended up on https://www.sitejabber.com/online-business-review#scribd.com_(Scribd) The very first (top of the page) flashing 'box' was to write a review/complaint on Scribd!!! However, I did not feel comfortable, it was the same logo etc as Scribd) - I deleted, it disappeared, and a genuine (?) sitejabber box shot up. I realized it was THE dreaded SCRIBD. I am not comfortable with SCRibd.
I do not know what your business is, I did not request to know, I do not want any connection with your company whatsoever. Please confirm all/any information regard myself has been removed/deleted. I do not know your category.

I finished up on that site, and found this site - https://www.sitejabber.com/online-business-review#scribd.com_(Scribd) - (are you also part of Scribd?) the first block invited me to Review SCRibd, as I started to write, I realized it was THE dreaded SCRIBD. I deleted, and then this review slotted in. I am not comfortable with what has happened.
