I entered a competion with this group, recieved the email like people are saying happened to them. They also told me, I was entered as a semi-finalist and my poem would go on to be in the finals. I have never done this before, so I was unsuspecting of any rip off.
So i read the email, was overjoyed and thought, wow something good is happening to me. I couldn'tbelive it. For me even to get that far was enough. So I sent an email to Mr H Ely, saying how overjoyed I was and everything and then it occured to me. Why would they think I was so great. The money was alot for the books, then you had to pay for a poets profile if you wanted.
I was lucky enough that the little voice in my head said somethings up, go do a search and see what comes up and I find all these reports on these so called people. I havent been through all the reports or the rebutals, but its funny how just one person and they are from maryland themselves has good things to say, but not really anyone else.
I'm greatful for this site, without I would have been $130 out off pocket and that was just for books and profile plus delivery. I don't think I want to even take that chance now, to try and send the money and see what happens. I have no money to spare, I'm a single mother thats trying to get my way through each day. How can they do this to people, its discusting. I do believe in karma, i hope they'll get what they deserve. If there is anyway I can help or anyone has surgestions on how I can help, or real sites that I can try, please let me know.
Thanks to all of you for reporting these scum. Lets pray they are stopped soon.
