Vanity Radio Interview Scam…




I had an email yesterday from an author asking about a radio interview with Kate Delaney and Emmy Award Winner form America Tonight. I can honestly say I’ve never heard of these type of interviews before so being me, I went on a research trip to look into it. I was drawing blanks from google until I typed in Kate’s name and radio interview scam, then I found something. Of course it is from the wonder ‘WRITERS BEWARE’ site and written by ‘VICTORIA STRAUSS.’

If you are offered an Interview for Kate Delaney, Ric Bratton or Al Cole, (there are probably others too) then you NEED TO READ VICTORIA’s research which you can find HERE.

Be Careful out there.

    That’s a new one. I’ve never heard of this type of scam before. I do love the Writer Beware site. It’s so helpful. I got a suspicious email yesterday, from a “Michael” (no last name) who claimed to be from West Literary Agency. The whole email sounded a little suspicious, especially considering the bad grammar in it (someone who works for a literary agency should use good grammar, right?) and lack of a last name. A quick Google search brought up a Writer Beware post about it, confirming my suspicions.

      Writers Beware are awesome. It was only due to commenting on a post on Facebook that I got the emails and researched… Blown away that this is even a Scam… Like you, I’d never heard of it before. I always go by…If they want all the money up front… then beware… It is nearly always a Scam. 😦
