TRAFFORD PUBLISHING TOTAL RIP!!! WARNING!!!Phillipines posing as sympatic American Publishers!!! Internet
My mother , who is 78 years old, wanted Trafford to publish her manuscript.  After mailing it, along with some personal pictures, she forked over $6,000.00 to have the book publshed. We asked for a written contract as well as receipts for the money they bilked from her account.  They have never obliged us. All correspondance had been done via phone since my mom doesn't use the internet. She was led to believe that her contract would be fulfilled, but after receiving a document via email there were to be more costs incrueing before the book was actually published.  They told us that they downloaded her edited manuscript of which we could not access.  We have phoned several times for a refund of which their representative Lou Fuentes had agreed. The money was never put back into my mother 's bank account. She told me her manager Joey Palermo was handling it.   Since we have tried several contacts to 1-888-232-4444 ext 6247 for Lou Fuentes and ext 6223 for ''Joey Palermo'' we have never had returned calls.     We are still in the process of trying to get our money back.

trafford publishing co. a girl cry and noone listened Internet, Indiana
trafford publishing co. will publish your books for you, but dont expect to see anything for your troubles. they will take you to the cleaners. they will keep your royalties and leave you out in the cold. check your authors with the bbb before you enter into a contract with any publishing co. trafford is as crooked as they come and the law is letting them get away with it. the judicial system is doing nothing to help the authors who are getting ripped off. these people should be locked up for the crimes they are committing. what has happened to our justice system? do they not prosecute these people for what they are doing to us? you be the judge. no wonder people take the law into their own hands nowadays. the law is only for those who can afford it.

Trafford Publishing, Trafford Publishing Singapore [but operates out of phillipines] lied, cheated, stole, took a lot of money and gave nothing in return manila
They kept calling and offerring to publish my books and sounded so genuine but they are complete scammers. Dangerous thugs there are about six or seven people scamming authors, talking to them like they are professional publishers. They did publish one of my books but they kept charging my card for things I did not pay for. When we told them to stop charging us, they just stopped talking to us. That's it.    These guys are thieves and they operate out of Phillipines. They said it was an American company but its not. They said it belongs to Penguin publishing but it doesn't. Even more than the money they took, it feels horrible to be cheated and lied to like this.

Trafford Publishing Theft of royalties, failure to maintain accounting of copies sold. Bloomington Indiana
In 1991 out of desperation I wrote an autobiography entitled, Ex-Inmate In Exile.  This book was not about any encounters I had had with the prison system but, rather, the mental health system.  I wrote it out of desperation for what was then the previous 20 years of my life as a mental patient.  Initially, I self-published it at a vanity press here in Baltimore.  Then, six years later, I republished the book with Trafford Publishing.   At that time, Trafford was located in Canada where it had been founded.  Back then, it was also a thoroughly reputable business.  Alas, it did not survive, and was sold off to a U.S. gang of crooks who ferried it off to Indiana, where it has been ever since.  Trafford is now owned by a larger company known as Author Solutions.  A.S., in turn, is owned by Penguin Books, which is owned by Random House.  There, you have the hierarchy of ownership.  After disposing of the copies of my book which I took delivery of from the first subsidy press I went to, I decided to sign with Trafford in order to be able to sell to a wider audience than just here in Baltimore.  My feeling is that my life had already been full enough with tragedy so that I didn't need Trafford to add any insult to injury at this late stage, by stealing my royalties and by not updating me as to numbers of copies sold.  I couldn't give less of a flying fuck if Trafford sues me for what I am revealing about them here.   When I published in Baltimore, I took delivery of 1,000 copies which I peddled in bars and restaurants.  As I sold more and more copies, the book acquired more and more local notoriety, and it became easier to sell still more copies.  Also during this time, a friendly college professor decided to make the book required reading for his students in Psychology class, and did so for a period of 13 consecutive years.  Thus when I then signed with Trafford, I did so with the hope that the book had already acquired enough recognition that it would not be necessary for me to spend huge sums of money on advertising for it.  I spent the next 16 years waiting for a hoped-for snowball effect to happen, and for sales to take off on their own.  All during this period of time, however, Trafford only sporadically paid me and even those payments were paltry.  Each time I called to find out if there had been any sales, I was simply told there hadn't been any.  My Trafford royalty account on the Internet is never updated.   In July of 2015, I decided to spend some money on advertising afterall.  I had a digital ad for the book designed for me which I then emailed to the Village Voice in New York.  After I payed them the sum of money they asked for, VV then ran the ad four times that month in the hardcopy versions of their weekly publication. In their online version, they first linked the ad to the Amazon.com page which had been created for the book quite some time ago.  They then ran the ad four different times in this online version.  At the end of the month, VV informed me that there had been a total of 221 clickthroughs onto Amazon.  Out of that number, it seemed to me I should have received at least a handful of actual sales.  However, such as is perpetually the case with Trafford, there has been no indication of sales in my royalty account whatsoever, and I have received no payment.   In May of 2014, I learned that a class action lawsuit against Trafford had been brought by a magnanimous law firm in New York.  This lawsuit alleged that Trafford was promoting fraudulent sales packages to its authors, designed supposedly to enhance sales of their books.  The suit also alleged theft of authors' royalties, and I subsequently put all my hope into a successful resolution of this lawsuit as a means of resolving the trouble I was having with Trafford.  Sadly, in September of 2015, I learned that the lawsuit had failed.   My worst fear is that Trafford is actually selling more and more copies of my book without paying me and without informing me of the numbers of copies sold.  I have toyed with the idea of writing Trafford a notarized letter, in which I make it abundantly clear that I wish them to cease publication of the book.  I would then send this letter to them by certified mail.  But I'm also afraid they would ignore that letter, and continue publication illegally.   Whoa is me.

After accepting full payment to publish my book I received a call from someone I didnt know in the evening 2 months later telling me they were not going to publish my book.  That person would not offer any information.  I tried to contact the 3 people I had been dealing with at Trafford, none of them responded.  The only person I could reach was the woman answering the phone at Trafford.  When I asked to speak to someone she put me on hold for 18 minutes.  When she returned she told me that no one was available but she was sending me a check to return my money.  3 weeks later, with no check,  I contacted Visa to inform them of the fraud.  A week later I received a statement from Visa that my nearly $2,000 had been credited to my account.  The amount was $150 less than I had paid Trafford.

AuthorHouse Publishing Company Trafford Publishing 30 day turn around. What a laugh Milton Keynes, Internet
AuthorHouse, which I am informed originates in the United States, having an office based in England (Milton Keynes), is the name that comes up, first, when seeking a publishing house that will undertake work for budding authors. AuthorHouse promises a 30 day turn around, that it is extremely professional. This is just how professional they are: 1) Three manuscripts submitted. AuthorHouse managed to mix them up. 2)  AuthorHouse managed to create two books, with different titles, but the same content. So I ended up with two books the same with different titles to them, and this by the same compositor. When I asked him how he could produce two books the same, with different titles, no answer came back. 3)  Wrong information placed on the back of the books. 4)  Wrong security details supplied, so as to access account 5)  Missing information from back of books, once the original mistake was looked into 6)  Inappropriate fonts to paragraphs 7)  Information missing from front covers 8)  Personal information inputted wrongly 9)  Persistant refusal to correct mistakes that they had made. 10  Instead of 30 day turn around it took from March until September (2009) to get ahead, even a little bit. Eventually I informed them that I would have to take court action, which they dismissed. So I took them to court and was refunded monies plus costs. Once AuthorHouse had taken the money they were off, off to the next client, regardless. The work that I submitted was consistantly mauled and the aggravation in trying to sort out their mess was quite incredible. When a customer services man contact me he said I must be brief in outlining my complaint. Excuse me! should he not have investigated my complaint before telephoning myself? this is the could not care less attitude towards their clients. After many months I still did not obtain that which I paid for. Wasted time and effort and felt as though I had been made fun of, looked upon as a stupid individual, a sap. I would not recommend AuthorHouse. It maybe that they get some books out, but I can only think that it is a matter of hit and miss and if you are unfortunate to be on the receiving end, get the tranquilizers out for you are in for a very, very rought time with individuals who do not listen, refuse to listen, though AuthorHouse claims to work with aspiring authors.

Trafford Publishing books, Xlibris, Palibrio, Author House, author solutions Trafford Publishing's scams Bloomington, Indiana
Ive read countless of negative comments online about Trafford Publishing and I was skeptical to believe those at first, but now I believe everything I read about this book, which in my opinion is a criminal organization. They are shameful comments, so Trafford should be ashamed. After I published a book with Trafford, two years later I contacted them to ask for my royalty. They said, there was an outstanding balance that needed to be paid and because of that the book was never published. This, despite the fact that I paid the publishing fee in full, they have already sent me a royalty payment and have received my free copies. I lost it. So I called and talked to Eugene Hopkins, a person at the top of the food chain so to speak, and he said, Ive never talked to you before. He has selected memory, because conveniently he didnt remember that we have talked before regarding some issues that I had with Hunckler one of the production guys. I spoke to Eugene Hopkins on the phone and exchanged e-mails with him. After going through all the e-mails that I received from the different people working for Trafford, I found Mr. Hopkins in my contact list. Imagine that you are being robbed or have been robbed. I have added a few names of the people that had exchanged e-mails with me; they are more than that. When I first contacted Trafford, Demond Dee Jefferson was the very first person that I dealt with and the person that sold me the publishing package. He sent me an e-mail confirming my agreement based on the payment and to let me know the book was going to be sent to production to be published. It is mind-boggling and hard to understand why would the book be sent to production, I received my free copies, I received a royalty payment already and two years later, I am told the book was never published and the production was put on hold because of an outstanding balance. Here is a site provided by Trafford Publishing promoting the book: http://www.amazon.com/Un-Dominicano-Peligro-Spanish-Edition/dp/1426923104 This is one of the many comments that I found online about Trafford: I simply cannot get anyone to respond to my e-mails on a book I am publishing with the company. The company says my book has already gone on sale, though they are obligated to provide me with a sizeable number of free books for my book launch they have not and are not responding to e-mails. Does this sound familiar? Did I get robbed? Is Demond Dee Jefferson a fraud and didnt work for the company? Is Jennifer Mitchell a fraud and doesnt work for Author Solutions? Why would all of these people be dealing with me assuming the publishing fee was paid already and dealt with me post production? If there was an outstanding balance, she wouldve told me that and she never did, because I paid in full to Dee Jefferson. I meanbased on my experience, Trafford is the biggest scam as a publishing company, which is why I requested that my book be pulled out of circulation. Surprisingly, in the month of October (2012), somebody from Trafford contacted me offering to sell me copies of the book at a discount price. I told him: Are you people for real? This book is supposed to pulled out of circulation. As it turns out, they are still selling my book. Are they thieves or what? I know people that have purchased my book before and after I asked Trafford Publishing to pull my book out of circulation. I am considering getting a lawyer involved. Here are the names of the people that I dealt with. They are all criminals. Be careful with Trafford. It you could your worst nightmare. Eugene Hopkins ehopkins@authorsolutions.com Demond Dee Jefferson djefferson@trafford.com Jennifer Mitchell jmitchell@authorhouse.com Maria Van Santen mvansanten@trafford.com Courtney Fleck cfleck@trafford.com Matthew Hunckler mhunckler@tarfford.com What they are saying: djefferson@trafford.com Jennifer Mitchell jmitchell@authorhouse.com Maria Van Santen mvansanten@trafford.com Courtney Fleck cfleck@trafford.com Matthew Hunckler mhunckler@tarfford.com What they are saying: Trafford was acquired by Author Solutions on April 2009. I signed a contract with Trafford December 2008 and paid for it. Since March they have my PRINT READY book with all the files for the cover and webpage. I have not received the pysical proof until today (July 6) I simply can not get anyone to respond to my e-mails on a book I am publisihing with the company. The company says my book has already gone on sale, though they are obligated to provide me with a sizeable number of free books for my book launch they have not and are not responding to e-mails. Trafford has great sales people and terrible ethics. Upon contracting with them for my book of 120 pages, I was quoted an author price of 6.53 and a retail price of 13.74. I have this in writing. My book came to 112 pages 8 pages less than quoted and they placed the author price at 10.49 published a book with Trafford under their Webblazer program that was offered at a considerable discount. Everything was pretty good up until proof reading time: They have a very sloppy printer. When I sent in my list of changes, it came back with even more needed! Whole paragraphs In Ontario, 2005 paid over $3, 000 to have book published with a promise of marketing the book. I received some books and then paid for more. I wrote and phoned re: royalties as I saw the book advertised but never received any royalties as promised from Trafford. RECENTLY SENT MY MANUSCRIPT TO TRAFFORD.I PAID FOR BASIC EDITING.I WAS MAKING WEEKLY PAYMENTS.THEY WOULDNT EVEN LOOK AT THE MANUSCRIPT UNTILL ALL PAYMENT WAS DONE. I PAID FOR BASIC EDITING.NOW THEY TELL ME I NEED CONTENT EDITING WHICH IS OVER $300.00 .NOW THAT IS PAID FOR. THEYRE..

EDP Card - edpreporting.com RIPOFF SCAM ARTISTS THIEVES Internet
What a scam! This company attempted to take $159.95 from my checking account. When I noticed the entry in my account, it stated check presented. Since I write such few checks, this was suspicious, so I immediately called my bank. Initially, I was told there was nothing they could do since they did not have a check number and they could not see who the perpetrator was. This was not good enough, so I insisted on speaking with a supervisor. I told her that I suspected fraud, and they had a duty and obligation to do something about it. Because of my insistence, she marked it as suspect and immediately stopped payment on it. I had to pay the fee of $30, but that was better than the $159.95. I have since located the company as EDP Card. Their website was immediately a red flag, since it had no address, no nothing. Their live chat comes back with no rep available, and when you call, even their recordings pre-empt their attempts to clear themselves by saying, if you are calling about an order YOU AUTHORIZED, blah, blah, and then they say, you will be instructed to send an email if we are too busy, and naturally, THEY WERE. Six attempts to call, and no one ever gets on the phone.
