a Ms. Lee Anderson called asking for my daughter by name. She said my
daughter wrote a book and wanted to talk to her. Later I checked with my
daughter and that was not the case. Ms Lee Anderson asked for a cell number
but I declined to give her it.

Someone called our number and asked my daughter to talk to me. Said that he
wanted to talk with Miss. Stewart about the book she wrote. I did write two
books but I am a man. He said he was from Book World and my daughter said
he had broken english. His ext was 308 with the same number above.
Caller: Book World

A Lee Anderson called three times while I was away and left messages on my
home answering service. She said she wanted to talk to me about my
newly-published book, and she mentioned it by name (I do have such a book
published). I decided to research the name and number on line and I'm glad I
did - just another scam, I suppose.

At 5:55 MDT on August 21, 2009, somebody named Lee Anderson called, asking
about my Deliverance from Jericho book. Thinking she was a potential
customer, I told her a bit about it. She asked what other books I'd written
and I told her about When a Man Loves a Rabbit. Then the pitch started.
She said that for $500, she could get my book advertisment to 50,000 e-mail
addresses. She also assured me that all of those folks had opted in. After
hyping Bookworld.com for about 10 minutes, she asked for my e-mail address.
I refused to give it and hung up.
