The Spooof is doubling its efforts to end the kind of exploitation of writers which has recently been exposed in the 'Old Geezer Job Campaign.' (OGJC)
An extra 10 Administrators are being hired by Mark Lowton to tackle rogue writers who fiddle stories and take advantage of Britain's 1.4m-strong army of wannabe Spoofers.
The new Administrators are expected to raise an extra 2m points a year for the next four years by targeting writers who write under many AKA's steal other writers ideas and who write far too seriously'.
These writers are pretend writers and are are self-employed to deny them workplace rights.
This will be a leap forward for the 'Old Geezer Job Campaign' to expose writers who deny their fellow writers rights and cheat the
David Guppies, Exchequer to the Spoof, told us: "We will come down hard on abuse by writers like those identified using AKA's on a regular basis."We will not tolerate attempted fraud by writers who don't play by the rules and organised crime gangs who exploit The Spoof."
Two myths need quashing: gangmasters don't just exploit Spoofers and this doesn't only happen in the hidden Spoof underworld.
"It's right across the board, driven by egos" a senior member told us.
"We find problems in the News Section, the Magazine Section, even in Snippets. In fact, anywhere using Spoof Writers' skills are implimented, even in the Caption Competition.
If writers employ ghost writers, this means Spoofing will be outsourced eventually and that is our concern.
The profits (measured in points) come from stealing stories and selling them to the Tabloids as well as having links to Facebook and Twitter.
We have also found links to organised crime, ID theft, story fraud and facilitation of illegal Spoofing.
Three Spoof Wrirwea went undercover in January to show how easily, so called Spoof Writers, can get help from Underworld bosses (and not the 'Underworld' of Coronation Street fame).
They are able to strip writers basic rights by making them self-employed, one agency bragging that the advantages include being able to suspend writers without notice just by telling them "don't come back tomorrow"
So, Spoof Writers of the World Unite and don't put up with any CRAP
