This site, with which I have never had any connection, has been spamming me regularly informing me of supposed references to me in papers on that site - but it is clear from the spam message body text that the references are simply to my name, and are *very* unlikely indeed to be mentions of me at all, seeing that there is no earthly reason why I'd get mentions in the sort of papers that would be submitted to them, and that there are pleny of other Philip Goddards! So, this is spamming, pure and simple, with attempted deception in claiming in the subject line of each email that the references are to me, when in reality it is just other people with the same name. I wouldn't trust any organization at all, which behaves in this way.

This garbage site keeps emailing me, telling me that I've "been mentioned" in a paper, then asking for over $100 in order for me to see what it's talking about. I've never been published, there's no reason at all for me to be cited in a paper. Either it's a scam by trying to swindle me out of $100 to see otherwise public information, or it's a scam by *lying* about my name being in an article.

This site has come up in a phish sent to me regarding an author that "tagged" me as a co-writer. This site has also appeared in scorecard spam on WOT. academia.edu/t/bYzd6-KXoCGt0-bd37pm/26490017/Regulated_Expression_of_Human_Immunodeficiency_Virus_Type_1_in_Human_Glial_Cells_Induction_of_Dormant_Virus?coauthor_invite¦8583ee14482ccd0b913d78f0e15998 This site appears to be untrustworthy.

Got led here by a phishy email, one of the obviously fake mails that use information gathered by web-crawlers to lure people into thinking a real coworker invited them. In my case I supposedly was marked as a co-author of a paper by another co-author of it. So far, so good (as the paper indeed exists, and we both are authors of it). But a real co-author would have at least cited the paper correctly, instead of using an obvious erroneous OCR citation. (I won't copy&paste the erroneous citation here, as I don't want to self-advertise, sorry for the lack of proof... But trust me, it was obviously wrong.)

The website provides links to sources for potential plagiarists to purchase essays to turn in as their own work to schools. If your child is enrolled in a virtual school program, avoid or block this website so your child will not get expelled. A Google search for terms related to an assignment I was working on pulled up this website in the results. The results specified the course name, and the subject matter for the week.The link leads to a source where a student could purchase the essay. Since this is for a team assignment, any student who uses this method would jeopardize other team members' grades and possible enrollment status at the school.
