SBS ABE loadsofbooks
Bookseller Scam

This person ordered a book from me - I sent the book, paid for tracking and know the book arrived. He claims he didn't and claimed a refund from Abe books who always favour the buyer and refunded his money. I lost almost $100.00. I know he has done this to many other legitimate Book sellers and has advertised books he claims he never recieved on Amazon. Like others I received a series of emails from him - 1. Please cancel the order (two weeks after the book was posted). 2. Please rush the book....

Early Moments
eceiving and being billed for books I did ot orde

This company advertises a trial offer of five children's books for $5.95. The add states that there is no obligation to buy anything else. I received the first shipment and decided not to order any more. I sent the company an e-mail and a written letter asking them to discontinue deliveries. However, the company is continuing to send more books and bill my credit card for them. kherzog@rochester.rr.com...

Jeremy London, famous actor
Violated publishing contract

Famous actor Jeremy London, who was the start of the Kevin Smith movie Mallrats and also several tv shows (including 7th Heaven), had entered in a publishing contract agreement to release a book that would be loosely based on his life. He was paid approximately $450 dollars as an advance. He not only has never delivered a book, but he also has admitted that he couldn't do the book and would pay back Sakura Publishing. To date, not one penny has been sent to Sakura Publishing. Just because this...

books a million
Return

A family member purchased a New King James Version Bible from our local Books A Million store. He discovered that he had purchased the wrong version (should have been the original King James Version). When he tried to exchange it, he was refused because he did not have the receipt. He purchased a second Bible, the correct KJV, and used it as gift. I tried to make the return of the wrong book. The store manager explained that the policy is not to refund or exchange without a receipt or some way...

introduction to statistics
they can bite me

they can bite me.. totally ripped off linking to my review http://www.trustpilot.com/review/www.bookrenter.com?r=3372159&ref=tp I am pissed. I work in customer service, and I have been able to work things out in the past with almost everyone. I've been in business for crying out loud That said; I returned 2 books on time, 1 box. I got credit for one, and billed for the other, with no recourse. Now, I have to buy the whole thing costing me more than if I'd bought the book in the first place....

Trafford Publishing
proofreading non existent

I have just received my 50 ordered copies, When I was sent the first proof to approve, all seemed okay I had constantly been at them to correct and a number of issues. In this second despatch, I see that they have more errors than within the first. It looks as though I have not bothered to address these concerns. I was in a writer's group and we self published and our editing was spot on. I always get an apology but that isn't enough any longer. I paid $3000 AU. Is there anyone who actually...

gift card
Not received

I went to a Barnes and Noble store in my area and they had gone out of business. So I ordered a gift card online to be mailed to Chicago. That was 12 days ago and the recipient has still not received. After contacting Customer Service, i was told they would respond within 12-24 hours. It's been 30-35 hours and nothing! I need this gift card in Chicago NOW, as it is NOT a Christmas gift. BAD CUSTOMER SERVICE!!!...

Westbow Press
Misrepresentation and deceptive practices

Westbow Press purposely is elusive and vague when trying to find out payments for royalties. They are deceptive in quoting costs which allows them to profit without sharing proceeds. They are tardy in paying royalties and will not address issues unless complaints are directed toward the board of directors and ceo. Their entire process should be audited and they should be required to disclose what was sold, when it was sold and the format that it was sold in. They refuse to do that. They do not...
