Should I be pleased to have achieved sufficient prominence as a writer to have come to the attention of those seeking to scam aspiring writers?
I got a answering machine message about being on a talk radio segment about my writing. The area code, however, was unfamiliar. It turned out to be Long Island. I would not have questioned Central or South Texas, but New York seemed unlikely. When I Googled the name left in the voice mail, I found several links to scams seeking to get writers to pay for questionable services.
I did not return the call.
