One of the most searched terms is “watch free movies online”. This indicates that many people are trying to find a way to watch their favorite movies and never having to pay for expensive monthly cable dues.
Although it is understandable, given the unbelievably expensive cable and satellite fees, it cannot be justified in the light of the roundabout costs that is included in it.
There are websites on the internet that offer the opportunity to watch movies online for free. The truth is that there is a huge cost that accompany using those sites free movies.
For one, it is illegal. And those sites are violating legal issues by publishing those movies on their sites. And if you pay close attention those copies are duplicate. It is more clear in case of freshly released movies. You will find that the copy they are displaying is taped by a camera in a movie theatre!
By using those sites you are supporting an illegal activity.
They don’t make money straight from you as a user, but they place ads from sketchy ads networks who allow any kind of ads.
Some are also running scams on their sites.
For instance, one of the sites was allowing a few loads before a screenplay on the site takes control of your screen and provide which you message that your computer has been identified for illegal display and distribution of copyrighted material and that law enforcement is on the way to arrest you and use the computer, which is now frozen on the act you’re doing (the illegal one they mentioned earlier).
After you try to get out of the site or do anything just to find out that your computer is not replying you start to believe them. The next message will ask you to pay the fine, usually hundreds of dollars, if you want to gain control back on your computer.
The software gives you the opportunity to pay online and of course some people respond and pay them. And when they mention it to their friends they discover they may have been ripped off.
Some of the sites that offer you to watch free movies online use a screenplay to accumulate your sensitive information, including any credit card you have suited for that computer to pay your bills, and unless your the creditors get your back on the deceptive transactions you will find yourself in deep troubles.
The other way those sites could easily get you in trouble is by really finding yourself facing legal charges.
