This is a lesson I will never forget (with the scumbag Eddie Kritzer):
This is the letter I jsut sent him today:
I sent you the letter 75 days ago to terminate my agreement with you. I will give you until This Friday (March 26) to return the $700 (or less before your take our your commission – and I want a detailed listing of expenses, please).
I have other things to do besides calling you to check on the status of my money while I am at work.
If I don’t receive the $700 or reasonable portion thereof by Friday, (March 26), I will be writing a letter to the editor to the Los Angeles Times and the New York Times about your treatment of writers. Frankly, I do not care what might happen to your reputation as a result of my truthful letter.
Send the money to:
Justine A. Cowan
Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.”
Almost everyone I’ve heard from about him hasn’t actually been hurt financially by being harassed by him, it makes me sad that there clearly are people who have been tricked into giving him money and taken advantage of. I don’t know how much the LA or NY Times will care about a small time scam artist, but the local news may be interested in pursuing an investigation. Local news thrives on small time crook stuff.
