In March 2008 I order two copies of a book for which I had submitted a picture of my grandson at the river. I titled the picture At The River. A few years ago (2005?) I had done the same with picture of my granddaughter with a good result, receiving the two books a few months later.).

Starting in December 2008, I've emailed the company via the email address for a release date of this newest book. I received one reply that book would be released in the Spring 2009. I've sent subsequent emails asking again for a more concise release date, but received no reply.

Today (May 7, 2009) I tried again and the email was returned undeliverable. I decided to call them. After the phone rings a few times a recording comes on saying the number has no mailbox.

Now, I have no way to contact them and they have 137.00 of my money. Since the charge to my credit card was over a year ago, and the card that was originally with one bank, it is now with the bank that bought them out. I have been ripped off. I want my money back or my two books I ordered.

I also just sent a complaint with Maryland Attorney General's office.

I have an update to this complaint! Today I received a check in the mail for a full refund! The check stub references the number from the complaint I filed with the Maryland AG office and an apology for my inconvenience.
I deposited the check today.... keeping my fingers crossed that it's a good check.
BUT.... I am very surprised and happy to have received this refund of monies I figured was long gone.
