Is This A Scam?

Print Friendly

I’m active on a new forum and have received two emails from someone in Spain asking to buy 40 “combo” packages ASAP. I had to repeatedly explain that I don’t do that kind of shipping and he should contact my publisher.

Is this a scam?

Unfortunately, this may indeed be a scam.

We frequently hear horror stories about unknown individuals from afar asking authors to send large quantities of books to them…and then asking to be billed for the order (or submitting false credit card numbers later). Unfortunately, many authors get excited about such a large transaction and ship the books, not knowing they’re being scammed.
