To whom it may concern:
I received an email today from a newspaper editor, in response to a fake email invoice he received demanding payment for Garrison Center op-eds.
PUBLISHERS WILL NEVER, EVER, EVER BE ASKED TO PAY FOR GARRISON CENTER OP-EDS
If anyone “invoices” you for Garrison Center content, it’s a scam. All Garrison Center content is released to the public domain immediately upon publication. Anyone is free to use it in any way and for any purpose without payment of any kind.
I apologize to any editor or publisher whom these scammers, whoever they may be, have attempted to victimize.

UPDATE: If you receive one of these invoices, do NOT call the phone numbers on it. They appear to be foreign “premium” numbers, sort of like US 900 numbers. The whole point of the scam is to get you to call those numbers … and run up a hefty charge on your phone bill that goes to the numbers’ owners.
