Scammer tries to rip off Potter fans

Do you know how Jo is always alerting us to scams? I want to make sure that no one wastes their money on an ebook that purports to provide the key to all the answers to Book 7. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is!

Here's the scam: He claims to be a private investigator who has spent 7 years compiling information from the books and interviews and developed a key that provides all the answers. It must not be much because in order to sweeten the deal, he offers copious amounts of bonus material he claims to have created himself. Don't believe it -- this bonus material is all from the Lexicon, from Accio Quote, and from Jo’s website. Much of what he is selling is available for FREE!

The Lexicon's lawyer has sent him a cease and desist letter. They are suing him for "unfair competition through [his] fraudulent, deceptive and dishonest trade practices."

This scumbag is advertising his book on fan forums and in local (Utah) newspapers. Don't get taken in, OK?
