Company Selling Book Fair Appearances Spammed Me. Should I Send Them Money?

I'm wondering if you've heard of this outfit (email removed by WritersWeekly) and their offer. What you think of it? Does it look legit to you?

Tina

First, this outfit spammed you. That was red flag #1.

Second, the owner of this company has been sued by the state of Florida.

Third, if you google the name of the company and the word scam, you'll find numerous negative posts about them.

Never work with spammers and please know that book fairs usually only make money for the fair organizers themselves.
