Savannah Guthrie is warning fans about fake copies of her popular new book that scammers are trying to sell online.

The Today show co-host issued a public service announcement shortly after the Feb. 20 release of her book, Mostly What God Does: Reflections on Seeking and Finding His Love Everywhere. In a Feb. 21 Instagram post, Guthrie shared a screenshot of two book listings on Amazon. The first had a cover that looked nearly identical to that of Guthrie’s book, with some small design differences. As Guthrie pointed out in her post, there’s another red flag about the fake: It spells her name incorrectly.

The second book included in the screenshot appeared to be a workbook for her latest project. But Guthrie said she wasn’t involved with its publication, either.

“These ‘workbooks’ are not real and not by me!” Guthrie wrote. "Watch out (they spelled my name wrong - that’s the first clue). I haven’t done any work book - just the book which you can buy at mostlywhatgoddoes.com OR from any retailer or Indy bookseller!”

The authentic Guthrie book, which was inspired by her relationship with her faith, has become very popular since its release last week. The book was listed at #3 on Amazon’s Best Sellers list as of Feb. 25.

Guthrie, 52, first learned about the fake copies of her book from her mother, according to Page Six. Her publisher told the publication that this kind of scam can happen with books like Guthrie’s that find success quickly.

Several other “workbooks” that incorporated Guthrie’s book title were still listed on Amazon days after she first warned readers that they were fake. Guthrie warned her Instagram followers that there are still “so many fakes out there” in another post on Feb. 25.

“I didn’t write anything other than the book Mostly What God Does - no workbooks, no studies, no nothing!” she wrote.
