I apologize if I'm not posting this in the right place, but someone just sent me a link that I think every law abiding magician on this forum should check out. Some idiot is using a popular internet site to peddle secrets in the most obnoxious, and frankly ridiculous manner possible.

http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/bks/282841120.html

I love that this moron thinks that anybody will simply send him money, what with him being a perfect internet stranger. Even funnier is the idea that he will send you something FREE in the mail. Not only is he charging for the secret (hence, he's giving nothing for free) but this is obviously not his to give away, free or otherwise.

I tried contacting the seller directly but it seems that he has not actually left a valid contact number or email. In fact, according to the link that I received and sent along, there doesn't seem to be a way to contact this guy at all! I might have thought this was all a joke, but why go through the trouble if you're the scumbag trying to make a quick (and illegal) buck? And why go through the trouble of describing and performing an effect that is so high-profile? This is all a little strange. In any event, I'm happy to see that nobody is making money from this scam.

I just PM'ed Charlie Justice.

He should know about this.

Some people really have BALLS. Crikey, he didn't even TRY to disguise it. Sad.
