*Consumer Suggestion: The missed evaluation..
A few weeks later I received a letter from the company, stating that I was invited to a convention for Poets and would receive a plaque for entering my poem.The convention cost over $500 to attend.I then telephoned the company to ask when I would receive my poem evaluation, as the letter did not mention this.
After speaking with a representative, I spoke with Mark Schramm.He told me that their company does not do poem evaluations.I told him about the ad which had his company's name on it, and he replied that the people who run advertisements for the company must have made a mistake.
I told him that I had a confirmation email from his company, and he further stated that his company does not send confirmations.He then became hostile and said that I should help "fix the problem instead of complaining".I have the email confirmation still and have seen the misleading ad several times.
This company did not follow up on what they advertised (the evaluation), instead they attempted to have me pay $500 for their convention.
