I am very unhappy with Scribd and Business Expert. I paid for a day pass to be a Scribd Premium Reader. Based on the statements on the Scribd website, I would have unlimited downloads and unlimited printing for a day. I downloaded the book, The Small Business Controller. All I received was the Table of Contents and the Introduction, about 7 pages of a 127+ page book. Was I scammed?!
