It's a scam

Too good to be true
I wasn't on Writer's Bureau long, I had disagreements with an abusive tutor. But the one thing I did learn is lesson Writing 101 - if something looks too good to be true, it usually is.

This is how I feel about this idea http://bingewatchingcure.com/, the man running the site is offering $200 for a 2,000-word story. The standard rate for such a short item would be a $20 maximum. 
I sent in a story I had on file, but I don't expect anything to happen tonight when the deadline is crossed. 
My dear friend, and editor, Julia would say I am too cynical, but after several years of people saying they will buy my e-books and not doing it, can you blame me?
