    download.com attaches adware to all downloads and permanently "set" 5 star ratings to cheat Google searches

    There are many software listings set to 5 stars to cheat Google search results. Here is one example. You can see that they delete useful information from negative ratings and the numbers don't add up.

    Read about how malicious their adware toolbar is on their own forums

    Spread the word and report them to Google to put an end to this.

    Thanks for posting up that information on a scam.

    Making a scammer's scam googlable on every scam-warner-anti-fraud-busting site you can find is a great way to slow that scammer down when a suspicious potential victim goes looking for information, finds your post containing the name the scammer is using, his email address, phone number and the emails themselves and then that potential victim does not become a scam victim because you took the time "get the word out".
