A Nigerian who claims to be studying in London, by name Oguchi Charles Onyekuru, gave me the web address of Raider Publishing International and asked me to contact them directly for the publishing of my new poetry book : "MY Ancestors Cannot Die" in New York as I had specifically requested to be guided to do.
It is pertinent to state that at the time Mr. Oguchi Charles Onyekuru introduced Raider Publishing International to me, he made me understand that the company had some reputation in book publishing in Europe, and I believed him. In the premises, I contacted Raider Publishing International at their web address and they responded by demanding my manuscript which I promptly sent to them by email for review. After a while, Raider acting through one Adam Salviani wrote back accepting my manuscript. I was then made to remit the sum of 849 US Dollars to them through HSBC to cover the cost of producing the book. They sent me a contract document which I signed and returned to them by email for their own signature and return. They have till date not signed and returned the contract to me as expected. that is the first problem.
The second problem that has arisen is that after remitting the above sum of money to them, they officials dealing me on behalf of raider Publishing international namely Adam Salviani and Katherine Flaherty changed their attitude to the transaction completely and will no longer answer my inquiries. I requested Flaherty for her telephone number so that we could be talking on phone but surprisingly she declined to supply one to me. She promised to send the signed contract to me together with an official receipt for the payment made but till date has done nothing.
In other words, I am not sure of the contract as I have no executed copy of same to found a claim. Salviani and Flaherty (assuming these are real names) have my manuscript and my money. I gave them written notice of my intention to sue but they have persevered in their seeming fraud and will not talk to me.
If all that I have been reading about the company in Ripoff Reports are true, then I have made my mistakes and I need help to immediately recover my manuscript and money from Salviani and Flaherty. I am no longer interested in the transaction since they have willfully failed to consummate by signing the contract and delivering a copy to me. This ripoff has to be investigated, please.
