ILP publishes books of poetry for $49.95 to $69.95, sells merchandise with (your poetry) on it (to you). Invites people to their conferences (which are held in Florida and Washington, D.C.), from all over the world, only to find that they have been scammed and ripped off. They make lots of false promises and have people paying for (phony) awards that they have supposedly won. What a farce.
I urge consumers to first investigate any markets where you will submit your poetry and writing. I found out about ILP too late because I was ripped off too, fortunately for a small amount, but any amount is too much. It's amazing how all these so called legitimate businesses are running scams (there's a huge number of them).
I've decided to take action by filing this report. Please investigate first. Don't get ripped off like I did. Most writers are concentrating on being published and may ignore the risks or little signs that something is not quite right. It's true that anything that seems to good to be true usually is.
