*Consumer Comment: I really don't have a clue what this person is complaining about?
promised a preserved poem in a walnut finished plaque.
Asked for permission form to be signed so poem could be Promised to be published in "Great Poems of the Western World". Asked for 100 word biography of myself so they could send me a Pulisher's Proof of my poem.
Ask for $5.00 handling fee for each poem and just for entering I would receive a free copy of their new best-seller "Our 100 Most Famous Poets and the Winners of $289,000 (a $14.95 value).
My letter was signed by Lavender Aurora, Poetry Editor.
I am glad I did some research on this before I sent all requested money and information to this bogus company that is making a profit off individuals who are hoping to have their personal feelings and emotions reveled to the world hoping to make a different in someones life or to give meaning to someone by my personal feelings and thoughts.
I sincerely hope there is something that can be done to this company and the people who are responsible for giving so much false hope to sensitive people.
