|THE GRAY STOPGAP BY DL TOLLESON
PROMPTS PUBLISHER'S SECURITY ADVISORY
MOBILE, AL (MARCH 30, 2016) The Lighthouse
Press, LLC issues a security advisory for e-book
fans, and in particularly customers looking to
read an e-book version of DL Tollesons
techno-thriller, The Gray Stopgap.
The publisher routinely monitors the web for
occurrences of copyright infringement, libel,
plagiarism, public relations, trademark
infringement, and other issues related to their
business model. During the final weekend of March
the company discovered a number of web sites
allegedly offering free PDF downloads of their
most recently published 4th edition of The
Gray Stopgap by DL Tolleson.
Were warning our customers that there
is not a pdf of the novel released to the
public, publisher Ron Richard explained.
In all likelihood these web sites are
utilizing the publics interest in the novel
for phishing schemes.
Phishing is a scam by which a person is duped
into revealing personal or confidential
information which the scammer can then use. In
the case of the web sites offering a free pdf,
the unsuspecting sign-up for an e-book that does
not exist and in the process becomes a victim
through the theft of private information or
though inadvertently allowing access to their
Were aggressively implementing steps
to end these shams, Richard added.
But the public needs to be aware that this
goes on all the time. In the case of The Gray
Stopgap, please be aware that it is
available only as a hard cover book and as a
Kindle e-book. At no time whatsoever has it been
available as a pdf.
Customers and readers are advised to exercise
caution in their buying habits: Purchase from
reputable online vendors, independent
brick-and-mortar book retailers and the larger
book seller chains.
The Gray Stopgap is now available at or
through your local bookstores and online
retailers. For more information, please visit, www.TheLighthousePress.com/GrayStopgap.htm.
