Raider Publishing International Fraud, theft, scam, deception and a downright conspiritorial rip-off in connection with my written work New York, New York

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

Raider Publishing International of New York attractively advertises itself on the Internet as a publisher with would-be authors interest at their core.  In doing so, the Company's chief officials, Adam Salviani and Richard Baird, together with several other mentioned individuals, deceptively disguises their true intention of fraudently relieving unsuspecting authors of their hard earned cash and literary work of years in the making.

I answered their invitation to have my written work published by them.  They asked me to send a sample of my work.  I duly did and they replied to say that they were interested and sent me their agreement packages.  The package which I chose required me to pay up-front 500 pounds (UK Sterling) and to submit my completed manuscript digitally.  I did all of this in February 2010.

My problems then began.  After several months of chasing, I was able to agree a cover for my Autobiography.  The company then went into hiding and would not respond to my numerous enquiries.  About September 2011, I accidentally stumbled across my book on the internet.  I immediately contacted the company to enquiry about my 5 author's free copies which were due upon publication by agreement.  I have been told atleast six times by different people by e/mail that my books are on their way to me.  They haven't reached me yet.

However, many people from all over the world (Britain, Australia, Canada and the USA) have contacted me to say they have purchased my book (ISBN: 978-1-61667-315-4).  I have seen copies of the book on the shelves of many of my friends in England whilst I was there recently.  I was embarrassed to see the finished product... so shabbily presented.  Fortunately, I had personally edited it before the novices got their paws on it.

Now that I am chasing my 51% royalties under the agreement, the company has gone into hiding once more.  I contacted BBB of New York (Case number: 9450084) but they have had no success in getting a response from the company either.

I am thoroughly frustrated and feeling cheated by these criminals and wish to spend all my resources pursuing them down whichever rat-hole they might be hiding.  I am determined to get justice for my near 7 years of writing.  Please help me in whatever way you can.  I am prepared to come to New York if necessary.
