A Fraud Alert of Sorts

This is Steven Petrick posting.

We got an e-mail from someone today who was having a problem with his newly purchased "Master Rulebook." His copy, while the pages were numbered consecutively, was incomplete in one way (missing whole swaths of rules), and larger in others (including the Annexes from at least Basic Set and apparently elements of other modules).

This was not a problem on our end.

The best we can figure is that someone took existing PDFs of various products and strung them together, then changed the page numbers. We draw this conclusion not just from the inclusion of things not in the real Master Rulebook, but because the individual cited in his e-mail that the footers on the front section of his book read "Basic Set."

The individual did not purchase this "Master Rulebook" from us, or any of the various distributors we use, but from someone else on-line.

The upshot is that it is important to know what you are getting and who you are getting it from.
