How 'bout I Cough in Your Cup and Charge You a Coffee?

How does this proposal sound?

1) You give me $1,500.

2) You write a 1,200-word story and give it to me. It doesn't matter if you've ever written anything beyond a grocery list. I don't care. Just put 1,200 words into a Word document and send it to me. My "editing services" will handle the rest.

3) I put your story into a compilation and "publish" it. I send you copies to sell.

4) You gain instant credibility as an author. This will help you promote your business because, heck, all authors are credible.


I was recently solicited for a scam like this. I had not heard of this particular approach. They really drove home the part about "INSTANT CREDIBILITY." They also had a bunch of celebrities endorse it (if you could call them celebrities – these guys were C-list at best).

Just letting you know about that pile of dog crap before anyone steps in it.

Nice try. Next you're going to expect us to believe that email isn't really from an exiled Nigerian prince.
