I was devastated when I found out that I had been scammed by the predatory publishers on the internet who go by the name of Lupine Publishers LLC. I wanted to share this rip-off incident with all of you so that you can stay away from the fraudsters at Lupine Publishers LLC. I really hope that this complaint and negative review is taken seriously by everyone so that Lupine Publishers LLC can stop scamming people so badly.
 
So, the incident started back in July 2018 when I placed an order of books with the predatory publishers called Lupine Publishers LLC on the internet. Initially, I was extremely happy that I got such an awesome deal on the books. I placed an order for the books on the cosmos, space-time, and space-travel since I love reading so much about them. I never expected the Lupine Publishers LLC to perform such a flawless rip-off.

It took me 2 weeks before I finally realized that Lupine Publishers LLC were nothing but a big fraud! So as soon as I realized this, I took to the internet to write this complaint and negative review against the con publisher. [continued below]....

.....
 
When I placed this order with Lupine Publishers LLC I was assured that I will get the books delivered free of cost to my doorstep. The market price of the books was nearly 1,780 US dollars. However, purchasing the set of books from Lupine Publishers LLC brought down the final bill to a mere 600 dollars. I was getting nearly a 66% discount on the entire deal by Lupine Publishers LLC. Too bad that it was all a big scam.
 
To make sure that I do not back off from the deal, the predatory publishers asked me for the payment upfront via online method of payment. I used my credit card to pay for these books. After placing the order with the Lupine Publishers LLC, I received an email that said that I will receive the books within the next 3 days. On the third day, I got a text on my phone from Lupine Publishers LLC that said that the books will be delivered to me on that day. I was too excited, only to find out that I became a part of a rip-off scheme at the end.
 
I did not leave my house and stayed in for the whole day to receive the books. I even took the day off from work so that I could receive the books first hand. Around 6 PM on the designated day of delivery, I received another text from Lupine Publishers LLC that said, “Your order was delivered successfully. Thank you for shopping with us. We hope you enjoy the books and recommend our services to your friends and family.”
 
I was shocked when I received the message since I had still not received any books. I instantly called the hotline number of Lupine Publishers LLC to lodge a complaint. I was convincing myself that this was just a goof up and I will get my books soon. The call went straight to voicemail. I started preparing myself for the worst. I suspected that the con publishers had finally scammed me.
 
I tried dropping an email too on the registered email ID of the predatory publishers hoping to get a response from them. I followed up with the predatory publishers for over a week leaving dozens of voicemails and emails. Now I am sure that Lupine Publishers LLC is just a big scam and a group of predatory publishers meant to loot people of their hard-earned money.
 
I am an avid writer, so I decided that I was not going to sit idle and post a negative review against the predatory publishers so that more and more people read it. Finally, when I uploaded the negative review against the Lupine Publishers LLC on a reputed forum I got a complaint email from them. The email asked me to take down the review and said that I was the one who was a fraud.
 
When I received the email, I was extremely furious and responded back immediately to tell them how they ripped-off my hard-earned money. I threated the con publishers that I will take them to the police if they do not refund my money back right away.
 
Again, I did not hear back from the con publishers at Lupine Publishers LLC for a long time. So, I dropped another email saying that I had prepared a negative review and I was ready to show the police how Lupine Publishers LLC ripped-off my money and time. I think that negative review did knock some sense into the minds of the predatory publishers at Lupine Publishers LLC since they agreed to refund my money back.
 
I am still waiting on the confirmation from Lupine Publishers LLC about the refund. I still have the original negative review against Lupine Publishers LLC ready and I will post it to the police in case I do not get my refund back. I hope that this negative review will prevent you from going through such a bad experience.
