Spam Arrives on Kindle

It was too good an opportunity for scammers to ignore. Taking advantage of Kindle’s upload by anyone policy, scammers have been ripping off lesser known authors. All it takes a name change and a cover change. Price it at $.99 and you’re set to go.

Then there are the spammers. They upload junk content. To a casual buyer, it is only $.99 right? They’ve made their money.

Kindle pays authors monthly, so it is quick turn around for the scammers as well as spammers.

Check out the article ‘Spammers, Content Farming, and Kindle: One Reason Why Your Book Can’t Be Found In The Abyss’ for another angle on this. Click here for this post.
