Scam, scam, everywhere a scam

Wanting to get published is like wanting to lose weight. Plenty of people are willing to take your money and tell you they’ll help you.

Here’s an example about a guy the state of Florida has filed a lawsuit against: "Through a constantly changing spider web of defunct corporations in Florida, Nevada and Wyoming, as well as websites, and unregistered businesses, Fletcher has created a business which generates hundreds of thousands of dollars annually from prospective authors relying on the unfair and deceptive advertising," according to the lawsuit.

In an effort to scare off folks who publicize what he does, this guy is threatening to file lawsuits against his detractors. Yeah. Just the kind of guy you want to do business with.
