Scammers Break The Kindle Store

I found the link to this post on Goodreads under the subject “Shame on You, Amzon” and thought I’d shared. I had no idea this was happening, so I wanted to keep my Indies informed! It’s long, but very thoroughly shows and explains how broken Amazon’s ranking system is – how easily it can be hacked and how all of these unknown, non-selling authors are becoming #1 Amazon Best Sellers virtually overnight…

  1. I’ve been following David for almost a year, watching him document the scammers’ actions…and Amazon’s inaction.

    Even if I were not an author this would piss me off. A lot of those titles are KU and pulling money from the fund they did not earn. It’s nothing less than theft and Amazon needs to get off its ass and end it.

    David was extremely ethical and more than fair in the beginning by not naming authors. Some claim authors are innocent victims but I call BS to that. Once…MAYBE…but anything else and they’re accomplices and just as guilty. I’m glad he’s posting names and covers now.

    I referenced this in an upcoming Monday Blog.

    • He’s definitely gained a new follower with me! I didn’t even know this was a thing. Guess I thought Amazon would have things like this under complete control with how anal they are about reviews and publishing policies… Such a disappointment to learn otherwise.
