Indie Authors and readers beware of FileDB.IO and!—More SCAMS and PIRATES!

Both of these sites are profiting from unauthorized use of indie author’s books—including mine. Do NOT trust “FileDB.IO” or “”. They are using book covers and descriptions gleaned from Amazon to lure people into buying non-existent book files, often using cryptocurrency. is especially sleazy and flagrant is their lies and deception. This is what they say about themselves, which is patently untrue:

“Welcome to! is the world’s largest distributor of indie ebooks. We make it fast, free and easy for any author or publisher, anywhere in the world, to publish and distribute ebooks to the major retailers.”

They do not have permission to feature, advertise, display, or sell my books—or any others I presume. Of the six links on their site (About Us, Terms and Conditions, Contact Us, DMCA,, and Donate) all are disabled except Donate. There, they will gladly accept your Bitcoin donations!

Do not be fooled by or engage with these scumbags! I would shut them both down myself if I could, but spread the word and perhaps we can put a dent in their operations.
