I was emailed by a man named "John Smith" regarding a post I had made on a student forum.  He stated he had the book I was looking for and gave me a sample of one of the chapters.  I asked for his payment method and he stated "academic venue".  After signing up with academic venue I was charged the sum of $260 just for being a member.  Their services consist of online fax and converting one file type to another which is completely useless.  They obtain your signature and once they get your visa card info they charge you this amount without you being aware.  They dont show you the fine print and corner you into paying this large sum of money. 

After doing more research on academic venue another member posted the following information on this man.  His email address is,,

Phone number: 832-416-4331

This is a waring for anyone to not use academic venue.
