I haven't visited Pennies for at least a year, my life being rather busy at the moment, but someone has obviously been very meticulous in compiling an email list of past posters in the forum. I just received an email from someone I don't know called supposedly Tushar Aggarwa, listing which Jerome Finley books he has and which are on his wish list and "if you find this to be mutually beneficial, we can share to help each other.. please get in touch .. if you have any books on wish list, let me know .. I have a good collection too..get in touch ..".

I don't have any of Jerome's work but respect very much what he has shared on here and would never rip him off. It's a terrible shame that some think otherwise.

To be honest I can't even remember Jerome's username anymore - and have very little spare time to do a search. I am rather preoccupied with work and a very sick friend.

This was the easiest way I knew to bring it to his attention, and I have, of course, kept the entire email.

About a year a go I went after this guy Tushar here at the Café for his open endorsement of piracy and theft. In response he put a curse on me giving me just six months to live. He also got great glee out of referring to me as an OLD BALD GUY.

I am happy to announce that I am still alive. (And have enough hair to stuff a couple of pillows!)

BTW- he was known as hypno_mentalist here before he was banned. Obviously he has another user name and has re-registered.

I emailed jerome a little while back about some work appearing somewhere it shouldn't and gave him some links and other such related stuff to get it removed...he's very busy at the moment so I don't know if he's had chance to get do anything...

Could have been worse Bob. He could have sent you that hat to wear. Smile

Rotten sods.

Just recently I had been hunting down a copy down of Mitox. I recieved an email from someone who called himself Pierre. Email was mindmagic999@.... He told me he had all of Phills books in ebook format and if I had anything that he didn't have we could trade pdfs.

There really was not much I could do so I just ignored the email.

It is my belief that the collectors of these unpaid for documents would have so much material they wouldn't learn any of it even half well.

As far as I am aware, jeromes signature work is indivdually coded to each purchaser and I don't just mean formatting. Im pretty sure everyone who purchased would have been made aware off that.
I no longer smoke camel cigarettes.

If you happen to know of any author that finds their work pirated, this is one of many ways of getting the stuff taken down off that site...please feel free to download the pdf for free, and circulate it wherever you want...

Destiny,

THANK YOU! I appreciate your kind words and your fine self especially for keeping an eye out for me and mine. You and your efforts are both very much appreciated and I trust things are going exceedingly well for you (!) and that your friend will make a speedy recovery.

Iain, I've received your email as well (it was sooooo good *!* and beyond the obvious conflict of interest expressed in this thread, I've yet to thank you for it, ha!). We'll talk again sooner than later. What you sent me personally was sublime...and professionally speaking, I've read the preview and want to be first in line to order (!!!).

Chris, the same goes for you! I love and appreciate you, man. I had to call for "help" in figuring out what to do about these crooks and I think we've got it all sorted out for the time being. Time will tell, as always. When and where I can take 2 or 3 down it seems a dozen more pop up in their place.

I've been incredibly busy as of late (no complaints!) and have received numerous emails about this guy and others like him pirating my work and using the MC as a vehicle to make illegal trades and ramp up the content of their stolen libraries. While I've got limited time currently, I can assure all of you that we're going after this person and anyone else that he's associated with to the greatest extent possible.

To Bob...too !@#$%^& funny! Perhaps we should phone Dr. Crow and put an end to this *** once and for all? Smile

P.S. Your hair always WAS the talk of the town and I remain envious as ever!

Thanks again to everyone! I'm afraid Tushar's days are numbered...

JF.

Hi Jerome-

Doctor Crow has been notified. Tushar has no idea was a real HooDoo curse looks like. Even penicillin won't shake it.

Sorry to see this is happening. Jerome (welcome back) is a gentleman and it is a shame to see his work being stolen. A few months ago I got an email from someone offering me a routine that retails at $1,000. Funnily it is a routine that I was slightly interested in.

The guy didn't just offer me the manuscript; he emailed me a PDF of the complete work! I contacted the creator, forwarded the email to him, and deleted it from my computer. But what hit me was that he wasn't even trying to make a quick buck, despicable though that would have been. He wasn't trading. He just sent me someone else's work, that was a limited release for a reason. What are these guys thinking?

Bald Bob, if the curse ever kicks in I can recommend a product called Spray On Hair.

Anybody know this guy?

Richard MARK (richardreading12@gmail.com)

It came as an email, not thru the Café. Any connection between the two?

That is definitely not the mentalist, creator, PEA member (and friend) Richard Mark. I wouldn't be surprised, though, if his real name is Tushar.

Yeah, I had a PM from this guy last week as well. Your best option is to report the PM to the Café mods who will ban his account.

He was asking me for Jerome's work as well as Neal Scryer's.

I wondered, since the body of the letter seemed similar to the OP, but the name was different. Hacked?

Doubt if it's hacked. The guys not that bright. Just a low-life thief.

If you guys want to compare notes to see if it's the same person, just show a partial email address.

Otherwise you're providing a matchmaking service for pirates.

Of course. How silly of me. I need to edit my above post but there is no option to edit. What's up with that?

I remember getting one of those as well. Just automatically sent it to the same place as the hair-replacement ads (Sorry, Bob.)

Hey look, it’s still in my Deleted folder. Looks like he was using “tushar(six digits)@gmail”. Typed all in lower case (Doug would have a field day!) He’s asking for “farewell book or professional choice 3 by jerome finley”. If it’ll help, I’ll be glad to PM the address to Destiny or TT2.

EDIT---

Actually, just did. Go get 'em!
...what if I could read your mind?

Yes - that's the same email address that I got the mail from.

Maybe he just needs to find what he's good at? Some do find it challenging to discern what is a natural fit for their persona. Why doesn't someone send him a T.O.D. routine? He strikes me as a champion tosser.
