WARNING: Scammers Ruin Everything (Speculative Speakers, This Is For You)

Tags: 

In the "this is why we can't have nice things" department, apparently there are scammers making use of our Speculative Speakers database to send phishing email scams to the generous speakers who have volunteered to be listed.

Among other notables who have received these emails include our own Chris McKitterick and John Scalzi. If you have been targeted by these scams, please know that you have our sincerest apologies and we are discussing ways to keep this from happening again.

Here's a link to Scalzi's blog post about the issue, and if you follow us on Facebook, you'll have seen Chris' warning already.
