  4. Hi, Patrick;

    I believe Lynn’s book is a significant tool in the ongoing war against the mercenaries who prey on the needy and un-knowledgeable in our society – as well as appealing to the lowest of motivations among those with some accumulation of wealth – that being greed.

    Here’s a message I sent about it to my family, as well as to an email list at my church. Others may want to consider doing something similar.

    “The founder of a non-profit scambusting organization with which
    I’ve volunteered for a couple of years has a book that’s just come
    out. Here’s a link to it on Amazon.com. [See the link at the bottom of your article above].

    The author happens to be a Christian – and a member of Sadddle-
    back church in California – and has conducted workshops on this
    subject at that church and elsewhere.

    I assure you that the issues discussed in the book are important
    – and pervasive. Billions of dollars are lost to scumbags who prey
    on some of the weakest in our society, including the elderly, disabled and others at weak points in their lives, as well as targeting those with some wealth. Seniors are a favorite target.

    This book is a low-cost primer on how they do it, including one of the most insidious – what’s called “affinity fraud”, where they use the trust of people in churches, ethnic groups, etc., to create credibility.

    In particular, the number and scope of church-related schemes and
    schemers astounded me after I began volunteering with the organization, which is why I’m sending this message.

    The book also outlines how to avoid being sucked into these scams.
    I highly recommend it. And I suggest you introduce others as well. I know from personal experience that some very smart, knowledgeable people have been victims, and this book could have prevented their getting robbed via their computers.

    The scambusting organization is Eagle Research Associates and its
    website is http://www.eagleresearchassociates.org.”
