The suit, filed in Arapahoe County
District Court against Maxwell MacMaster and his company, Morphcorp LLC,
seeks to cease the operation and penalize him up to $2,000 per book
sold, which could amount to $300 million," according to the Denver Post.
The suit claims 150,000 people nationwide were swindled out of $49.95
each when they bought a book with fake family histories from Morphcorp
of Denver. People who bought these genealogical "yearbooks" got the same
family coat of arms, the same family recipes and even the same family
jokes, according to a lawsuit, which was filed in late November.
