Scams aimed at writers

Writer Beware is a site hosted by the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America (and recently joined by the Mystery Writers of America, as noted in Publisher's Weekly). The headline on the site page explains: Warnings About Literary Fraud and Other Schemes, Scams, and Pitfalls That Target Writers.

We would say that anyone trying to break into publishing should check out the underside of the industry. There are people out there who want nothing other than to take your money. Don't let them do it. And kudos to these writers' groups for supporting this site.
