I recently became aware of a scam philosophy journal called the Review of Contemporary Philosophy. Someone associated with the journal contacted one of my professors asking to publish an article on his website. Since this is bizarre behavior, my professor asked about the journal on Facebook, noting that the journal had what seemed to be a very impressive editorial board (see here: http://www.addletonacademicpublishers.com/editorial-board-rcp ) and asking whether anyone knew anything about it. Two people were contacted from the list and confirmed that they had never heard of this journal and their names are being used without their permission. Given that, I'd say there's a decent chance that others on the list are having their names used without their permission. I figured I'd give you a heads up in case you wanted to post something to warn off potential submitters and inform those who are listed as editors without their knowledge.
Readers: what do you know about this publication? Is it legitimate? It is worrisome that the editorial board lists two John McDowell's, one at Pittsburgh, one at Indiana! If you are listed on the editorial board, but never agreed to be part of it, feel free to note that here as well.
