Ron Kaminker tells us that he unfortunately fell prey to this scam...

Had he checked the JewishGen Discussion Group Archived messages he would
have been thoroughly forewarned against falling into this trap. Messages
as far back as two years ago appeared about Halbert's of Bath Ohio.

I note that their prices have risen dramatically because when I got the
offer in 1994 it was considerably lower..
I also wonder if they ever got their soundex act together because it was
totally wrong when they offered to sell the world book of SKYDELL. They
soundexed SKYDELL as S234 instead of S340 <VBG>

Perhaps a letter to Halbert's with a copy to the Consumer Affairs Bureau of
the State of Ohio, demanding the money back would be successful.
