International Library Of Poetry - International Society Of Poets - Poetry false awards, fraud, mis-use, disappointment ripoff Owings Mills Maryland
I paid outrageously for all 3 books - to have my poetry out there getting published and not own a copy?!?!
Emails show up in my inbox everyday, stating I had earned all kinds of awards, certificates, trophys, medals, convention invites, etc.
But wait... YOU - THE POET - MUST PAY for all of these oh so wonderful things!
WOW! I thought I had a great achievement with all the praise, and requests for more of my poetry back in '95, so naive was I to fall into their trap and send a second poem for "Best Poets of 1996".
The most recent (3rd) poem I submitted was my way of expressing my father's sudden death in 2004, I felt like I needed to let the world know. I fell for it - I had no idea at the time that the site I was on was the same people as 10 years ago.
They make you believe you are the world's best poet, deserving all this recognition, getting you all hyped up just to charge you for not only the book, but each and every so called Award, etc.
Is the Copyright even for real?
