Seems like it has something to do with this post:
There is a known scam going about which is still drawing people in. Someone I know just paid £35 for a book on a particular subject, published by Alphascript Publishing.
Within the first few pages among copyright information was a small easily missed disclaimer ‘all source material drawn from articles on wikipedia’.
These muppets are literally (badly) gathering info from Wikipedia, calling themselves ‘editors’ and selling the books via Amazon and other outlets for a huge price.
Be aware and avoid at all costs. Thieving gits.
