Yes, but since these stories are normally hidden from average users or got removed from the .net due to legal threats - from the ciriminals comitting the crimes - it is very important to tell the truth if it is known.
Next time anyone from here purchase a product he/she will think twice about anything clickboom as they don't deserve financial support.
Don't buy products from rip-off publishers, try to contact the author and pay him if you need to, but don't feed those greedy bastards.
The longer they stay in business, the longer they can rip-off yet another author. Only the authors change, their business model won't... unless they go out of business.
So as even an end-user you can make the difference and these stories must be told.
