Below is the email I received explaining why I was ripped off of nearly $100.00. Anyone else that has sent anything to this company: Poetry.com or any company they list below: you have been scammed also.

Dear Poetry.com Customer,
Thank you for your inquiry. Lulu.com and Lulu-Poetry are not affiliated in any way with the former owners of www.poetry.com, Watermark Media, who have gone out of business. The former business also operated as Publish Today, Noble House Books and International Society of Poets.
Lulu simply purchased the domain for poetry.com, not the business.
If you are contacting us regarding either of the two issues below we are not able to assist, as we are not affiliated with the previous owner. We apologize for the inconvenience.
