Nasty bit from Kate Douglas’ newsletter this evening about a Chinese website that is selling a slew of her books for really cheap prices. And I thought it may not be only Douglas’ books that may be offered up.

My concern is that Douglas mentioned that this is “a suspected phishing site based in China. We’re trying to get them shut down, but if you give them your credit card information, you could be setting yourself up for a lot of trouble. Some of these sites not only steal your personal data, they also plant malware on your computer capable of copying keystrokes and taking password information.”

Be wary.

    Good to know – I am paranoid about where I buy from on the net we got caught a few years ago after a purchase on Ebay – someone whooping it up in Rome at our expense. Luckily the bank kept a close eye and rang before hey did too much damage but it is lethal over the holiday season when the banks are closed.
