Hi,
I believe somebody is selling copies of my book without my permission on Amazon.

Hi James,

What makes you think so?

Unless you can find your actual content in someone else's book-cover, or under someone else's name, it's more likely to be a scam, especially if you found evidence of it on Google, and not actually on Amazon itself.

There are very many websites that will advertise they have your book for sale, often for free, just trying to get unsuspecting punters to give away their credit card details, or provide their e-mail address so they can dump a virus on their computer.

Very rarely does someone actually have your e-book.

Hope that helps. J

If you're referring to a print edition on Amazon, what makes you think anyone needs your permission? You have heard of online booksellers, haven't you? It's like a bookstore without walls.
