The Rag - Complaints / Reviews / Scam Reports The classic scam against hopeful naive creative writers. Internet

This is a Complaint / Review about The Rag.

The RAG literary scam. SETH PORTER, DAN REILLY

When one decides to make an effort to write professionally, he soon inevitably is confronted by a simple classic scam that go like this...

1. The aspiring writer seeks outlets for his work.

2. He finds a promising outlet through some paid advertisement, typically offering employment.

3. The outlet then contacts the writer with not employment, but an offer filled with optimism, as if his success is just a submission away to the outlet. Somewhere in the ensuing paragraphs, once the writer is drawn in, follows a stipulation for a submission fee. Then continues a few more paragraphs of the success the writer will most definitely receive from his submission.

4. The writer pays for his submission.

5. The writer loses his money and gains nothing; furthermore, his hopes are shattered because he was duped into believing the odds of success were anything more than, in a best case scenario, an innocuous fraction of a percent.
