i have wrote various pieces of work and placed them on poetry.com each time i got a congratulations stating that my work was to be published and i was given the oppertunity each time i submitted to buy the anthology series they had coming out soon, each time i thought well i would realy like a copy with my work in as it has been a dream of mine to have my work published well each time i was getting the letters i became overjoyed pleased as i was i kept showing my parents and my fiancee and i started to think that maybe it was finaly going to happen and my dream could be coming true

any how i didnt send any money for the anthology as i was short of money at that time however after i had gotten back from holliday and eventualy got my finances sorted out i recieved a letter inviting me to a poetry gala in america well i never got round to writing to them back however i did spend a bit of time on the computer and i had descided to check my e-mails and i had about 4 e-mails from poetry.com saying that i was invited to america to the poetry gala but with work and not having the money well not enough for that anyway i thought i cant go but it did state that if i paid a sum of money i could have the poem read out at the gala by a proffesional

it stated that if i did not go though i could not win the cheque for $10.000.00 but i thought well first it is being published and that itself was great but withing the money that i sent i was going to recieve by express delivery my trophie a medal and an ip number so i dont know why i just thought well if all my work is to be published that i had sent in it seemed worth it especialy the trophie as that realy looked the part so i paid by visa over the internet and a while after i had paid, the money had come out of my account and been recieved by poetry.com it came close to 150.00 but i was just looking forward to what was supposed to be on its way to me a few weeks had passed and nothing

the contest was sep 20th i have phoned the number given and just keep getting through to an elderly couple so i have stopped phoning as i didnt think it was right so i tried replying to sender by e-mail and supprise supprise there was always an error i paid the money in august and still nothing i have only just started looking for things to do with poetry.com and realised it was a scam is there no way that legal action can be taken from the uk and is that the money gone with nothing to show for it if i could take legal action how could i do that from the uk these are just a few questions i have started to ask myself
