This is the copy of the postcard that I got from The International Library of Photography. It says that my book was yet AGAIN delayed for the FOURTH time! To my surprise, the title of the book has been changed also from Endless Journeys to Paths of Perception. Does this company have a clue what they are doing? Well the postcard says I should receive my book before April 2005. Something tells me that around March 2005 I will be getting another postcard stating it will be just a bit longer until I get this book that probably does NOT even exist.
It is November 2004 and I still do NOT have the book. I have called the company several times and was told that the book was delayed because of problems but I would get it in August 2004, then on November 30, 2004.
It is November 28, 2004 and I still do NOT have the book. Yesterday I got a postcard in the mail that said I would get the book, which now has a DIFFERENT name, in APRIL 2005!! I have been lied to and given the run-around by these crooks and now I'm out of patience!!
I bought a copy of this expensive book and paid $77.95 to be exact. Now I must contact and fight with the company to get my money back. The ISBN-0-7951-5247-7 and both titles I was given for the book can't be found in any bookstore or on-line.
The photo contest that I entered and that is affilated with this rip-off company is located at www.picture.com. Please beware and stay away from this photo contest and website.
I don't want anyone else to get ripped off the way I did. I am a single mom with 3 children and work a full time job to take care of them. I was so proud that my little girl's picture was being published for all to see her. I paid the near $80.00 that I could NOT afford, so that I could have a keepsake of this accomplishment.
Instead, I got lied to, taken advantage of, and ripped off. I will contact the Better Business Bureau in Maryland to report this company and what they did to me and many others. If this has happened to you by these people, I urge you to do the same.
TOGETHER WE CAN STOP THESE CROOKS!!!!
