If it costs, be careful

A few months ago, Amy Goldman Koss (whom I know from the Internets) wrote in the LA Times about a phone call she received. “The other day a man called me (on my unlisted number) and said he worked for a women's morning talk show on the Lifetime channel called "The Balancing Act." He thought my newest novel might be a good fit for a "summer reading" segment. "Wow!" I thought, "Finally some serious publicity. I wonder how he heard about my book? I wonder how he got my number? Do I have time to lose 30 pounds before the taping?"”

Sounds like a dream come true, right? ) Wrong - as you'll read here.

Anytime anything costs, you be wary. It's easy to be scammed when you want something so desperately. Just ask all the folks who have fallen for weight loss gadgets.
