Best to circle our wagons on this new frontier. FYI.

I have been hearing from a LOT recently that more SCAM BOOK SITES are appearing online in ever increasing numbers…

What can YOU do about it?

If you are an author and YOUR book(s) are being offered without your permission – issue DMCA Notices (SEE BELOW FIRST)

If you are a readerPLEASE DO NOT USE THESE SITES!

It may be tempting to get books FOR FREE or at greatly reduced prices but…

They may be a click farm looking for your email

and you will be infected with a virus.

*****

AUTHORS – VERY IMPORTANT!!!

DO NOT SEND THE OFFENDING SITE A DIRECT NOTICE.

If they are on Facebook – Use Facebook’s reporting form to remove their link source from Facebook’s server.

My attorney warns me not to click on them, but to send a form letter to their server.

You can find out their server here:

Author: Let's CUT the Crap!

I'm getting a little LONG in the tooth and have things to say about---ouch---AGEing. I believe it's certainly a state of mind but sometimes it's nice to hear that you're NORMAL. I enjoy reading by the truckload. I'm a grandma but I don't feel OLD although I'm not so young anymore. My plan is to stick it out as long as I can on this lovely planet and only will leave it kicking and screaming!

  2. I found one a while back – Doelbook. I tracked down their server, and the company told me it was not their responsibility. So frustrating. I reported them to the copyright infringement wing of the FBI. But the site is still up and still has my book listed. So does booksonline.website. It’s just theft.

  4. I say we seek them out, round them up and beat the crap out of them. Just sayin’, y’know?

  5. These are frightening. I have no idea how to counter them. I have a copyright attorney so I have a tad more leverage. I’ve even copyrighted my books–officially. That gives me a lot more power than the ‘intellectual rights’ status.

    • I have a friend who just began blogging and once the conversations started about stolen books being sold from eBay to any other book seller. She had a book up on Amazon and wouldn’t you know it , there were a couple copies on eBay. She hadn’t YET sold a copy of her book. How does this happen?

  6. Thanks for reblogging this. I never would have seen it otherwise. I’ve been getting emails from a couple of site that say they have free ebooks. I’ve just been deleting them. From now on, I report them as spam.
