Another Lucky Day!

I should hit 80,000 words on the new book today, which I now think of as Dark Justice. I am sort of having a race with my friend Anthony Horowitz, who is also due to hand in a book soon. He's on 73,607 words and seems to be writing much faster than I am! Anthony's books tend to be a bit shorter than mine, he's aiming for 90,000 words whereas my last three books have all come in at 135,000! I think Dark Justice will probably end up at between 115,000 and 120,000 so I have a fair way to go!

I'v been offered more money again. I think this one is a Nigerian scam. Sadly I am too busy to reply to him!

Have you ever had any feedback from your exposes of these scams? I would be very happy to find out that some people have gone to jail or had to shut down, or something else dire. It is funny that they don't know how much exposure they have opened themselves up to by sending something to you. Remind me never to reveal any secrets to you, LOL.

Yeah, often I start emailing them for more information. I do get a lot of hits on the blog from people Googling names of scammers so putting them on-line does actually provide a service! I am amazed that people still fall for these scams, but they do!
