Imagine the horror!
This reporter was informed that writer Ferrel Moore was just bilked out of $10 over at Indiegogo.com, where Indiana Sleaze David Boyer posted a project under a fake name. It looked like a real screen project. It looked like it was a project put up for a really good cause. Mr. Moore apparently wanted to help this desperate screen-writer (now that we know it's really David Boyer in another cheap disguise we can guess why he's desperate), but now, alas, he is forced to report this scam to the authorities.
Is this known plagiarist, who has in the past sold books with stories he stole and put his name on, now guilty of fraud? Or just insipid bad taste? But is pretending to be someone else while asking for money without revealing his deviant past in the publishing industry a legal issue, or evidence of moral vacuity? At the very least he has violated the Terms of Service of Indiegogo.com
Someone should tell them that. This reporter wonders who will first spill the beans to them.
In further developments, now that Mr. Moore donated, he says he'll have to ask his attorney whether David Boyer the serial plagiarist has crossed another line or not. While, of course, he's filing a complaint with the Internet Crime Complaint Center.
This reporter sends a big thanks to b.thoughtful for letting writers and readers everywhere know about his new scam. I learned it from her post at http://b-thoughtful2.blogspot.com/2012/03/david-boyer-wants-your-money.html
If anyone else has donated money online to the Indiana Sleaze while he is hiding under a fake name, you can file a complaint against him at www.ic3.gov (the Internet Crime Complaint Center). Hopefully the state will someday award him an orange jumpsuit.
