Naked chef victim of hoax email

A hoax email was circulating around the Internet on Friday purporting to be a new cookery book from British celebrity chef Jamie Oliver dishing up recipes from sushi rolls to fish and chips.

Penguin Books, the UK publisher for Oliver's books, said it was trying to track down the email's author.

It contained a 121-page Microsoft Word document attachment replete with colour photos, scores of recipes and a fictitious title, The Naked Chef 2.

"It appears to be a type of pirated version of his many cook books," said Jess Ward, publicity director for Penguin Books in London.

"Obviously, this is an infringement of Jamie's copyright so Penguin is pursuing it with authorities."

The publishing house was first alerted to the email on Thursday and the document appeared to be winging its way to more and more inboxes as Friday wore on.

Media companies have become regular victims of online piracy.

The culprits typically distribute bootleg copies of films and music.

I actually received a copy of this hoax the day before reading the above.
If anyone wants a copy and let me know and I'll send it to you or post a URL.
