Easy as 1, 2, 3...See David Boyer Steal a Story! (Email Evidence)

I'd like to thank Ferrel "Rick" Moore for sending me the emails from his recent blog post:
http://thewriterandthewhitecat.blogspot.com/2012/04/feeding-ground.html



First step, find good hunting ground for poaching. 
 Join a writer's group, especially ones that critiques stories.



Second step, bait your trap.
Send out stories for review.


Third step, wait for the unsuspecting prey to arrive.
Other writers of the group send their stories to you.


It's just that easy!


Below is the rest of the email exchange:






What happened next?
  
Boyer deleted Ferrel "Rick" Moore's name and attached his own to the story.  He then published Moore's story as his own in various magazines, on various websites, and in over 9 books he personally published.


Boyer could have gotten away with it if it wasn't for the fact Ferrel "Rick" Moore published his story in the anthology Beyond the Porch Light and Other Tales in 2002.
