LimeWire company does not exist, they closed last year. The company who were advertising are scammers.

I would immediately contact your bank credit card company ASAP & explain a scam company has taken advantage of your CC card or debit account. Banks usually have a special section for CC fraud. There is a chance they may cancel the transaction, also a chance they will refund your money. But this depends on the Credit Card company or bank. Edit: If you used a credit card, it would be wise to cancel it and order a new one explaining the circumstances. Some banks suggest this be done anyway, just in case the details have been passed around from scammer to scammer.

As far as the software is concerned, the LW pirate edition is equivalent. (free)

Decent advice by et voilą which was re: FrostWire but same concept. ;)

Of course not. Find any file sharing program via google advertisements and they will no doubtably be scam sites.

Try the LimeWire Pirate Edition link I gave above. It is identical to LW Pro 5.5.

If you prefer to use LW version 4, then let me know. We supply links to most commonly used LW versions on this forum. :)

Have a close look at the image at bottom of this post it shows how to identify 'paid' advertisements on search engines such as Google. Sponsored search results will either show at very top or to the side but usually subtly different color or formatting.

I am glad to hear you are making progress. Thank you for letting us know. Let us know how things turn out. :)

And about how to use LimeWire (we abbreviate it LW), we have lots of advice on this forum. :) Here is a starting point: How to find music & video ;)
