“Websites are offering my book at RIDICULOUS prices! How can I stop them?”

Q – 

Miss Angela,

I am sure you have heard about Amazon allowing anyone to sell any product. My interest is having my book offered at ridiculous prices far above the quoted cover pricing. These scammers use my Amazon ads and illustrations claiming all sorts of things, like having 15 books of varying quality on hand. Raising the cover price from $13 to $45. And one site actually at $620. However, my publisher and I have never sold books to these people. Amazon says I have to go to the guilty parties and demand that they remove the ad. But, the next day I find the same ad under another name with the same fraudulent information. Any suggestions? Comments? Your history with this?
