Free-Ebooks.net posted my Kindle book one month ago as a free PDF download. It has been downloaded 2048 times so far. What would be an intelligent action?

Pay no attention! And by no means give the scamsters your credit card number!

(Don't trust KDP to publish a print edition. Don't trust CreateSpace to publish an ebook.)

Good luck! -- NJ

It is a scam site/s looking to gain credit card numbers.
Ignore them.
No, they do not have your book.

I truly believe you. I just found another "book" on that site that has exactly the same amount of "Downloads" as my "book." Thanks for responding.

You're welcome. Keep in mind, if you have paperbacks published thru CreateSpace, that bookstores may list your book/s.
If they get an order, they order at a distributor level and you do make money from it.
