The Endless Drug Scam

Harry over at the Druglink Blog has an interesting post about dodgy publishers:

For several years, small businesses have been targeted by fraudulent publishing companies over the production of drug education and other materials for school children. It is still going on and the authorities seem powerless to stop it.

DrugScope’s name often appears on these booklets and some have included text stolen from our website. We have nothing to do with this fraud and have dealt with several enquiries over the years from people who have been approached.

I’ve certainly been approached a couple of times by businesses wanting to check the legitimacy of publishers trying this scam on, and you can understand why it keeps on working.

Harry suggests that if you come across this sort of thing there are a number of actions you can take, and gives details of what to do.
