100% scam

I wanted to publish my book and I found this publisher. I paid up to $1000 and gave my manuscript, but now it is more than half a year and I still didn't receive my book. And now I can't contact them, because they never reply on my e-mails and their phone is not working.

Beware of these thieves! These guys ignore me now.

I sent Adam Salviani my manuscript and they sent me a contract for publishing. I paid $900 and the book was never published! Beware of these thieves! These guys ignore me now.

avoid Adam Salviani

Beware of this company and Adam Salviani! I signed a contract with him to publish my book. The guy took $1800 from me and then some extra money from my account - totally unauthorized transaction! He breached the contract, threatened me and the things he did were really unprofessional. Beware!

don't honor contract details

This company didn't honor our contact and failed the contract details many times! They published my book earlier, than I asked, never send me free copies and they never paid me compensations for sold books.
Consumer, beware and better stay away from this company!

fraudulent business

Consumer, beware! Read this and many other reviews before dealing with this publisher! absolutely poor service, low quality and with all this no support at all! Made a big order on more than $2000 and never received a purchased product and they hold my money and don't want to refund them.

ignoring contact

after much bickering they published my book much after the agreed period. 9 months since publication of the book i haven't received my author copies. neither was my request for the shelf space of the book been fulfilled. now my e mails are being answered by the auto reply mode only. it seems the publisher wants to avoid contact. it definitely seems fishy.

RAIDER PUBLISHING INTERNATIONAL OF NEW YORK

This Publisher took 500 UK pounds off me and agreed to publish my Autobiography which was poorly produced and published about 18 months ago. The book is currently on sale via AMAZON BOOKS on line, via some Book stores and on the Publisher's webb-site itself.

Since publication, the company and its proprietor - Adam Salviani - have shut down communication of any kind with me. They stopped e/mailing, their telephone doesn't get answered. In consequence, I have NOT received any of my FIVE autor's copies under the agreement and not one penny by way of Royalties due in spite of numerous sales of which I am aware.

I enlisted the aid of BBB (bbb.com/newyork) but the company has not responded to them either. I would encourage all suffers like me to contact the New York Division of BBB pronto as this will be listed on the records against this company. I am also seeking the help of Consumer Protection/New York Division Complaints section as they have enforcement powers.

I am determined to track down these scoundrels and if necessary prosecute them to the full. Any help and advice that anyone can send my way will be grately appreciated. I am particularly interested in enforcement possibilities/agents.

Also, is there any way that I can stop further sale of my books by these crooks?

Help, please! I can be reached at: carltonduncan41@hotmail.com

I sent a copy of my book, 'String of Pearls' to Adam Salviani of Raiderpublishing in July 2012. I paid almost £900 on the 3rd August 2012 for the Bronze package. I was led to believe through their site that this company was run by Authors for Authors.
I have attemted to contact Mr Salviani on several occassions to no avail but a couple of months ago he replied to me saying he would be in touch but he didn't say when or which year!!
Seeing as he has broken our contract, do you think I can claim the rights to my book back, has anyone tried that yet? What about the monies paid, has anyone had that back?
What does this bloke do with all the money he collects, he must have a healthy bank balance!

refund of my unpublished manuscript

Hi. I wonder if any of u got any compensation from those bastards who I also feel robbed from? I sent the manuscript to them September 2014 and last time I heard from them was December 2015 and they haven't published my story yet and that called Adam keeps ignoring my emails. And I'm desperate to do something about it, it's been neatly two years and still nothing. If someone managed to get the money back can I please get advice and the steps of how to fight them?

Raider Publishing International

I worked for two years to write a book on iPad application development. I submitted my completed manuscript to Adam Salvini in 2015. I also gave Raider Publishing International $1200 my hard earned money. For the last two years I have been emailing them with no answers from them. After reading other reviewers, I realized that I am not the only one that was ripped off. They also put my profession as a professor who can get promotion based on publication in jeopardy.

I have no idea what legal actions other reviewers have taken. If you know what to do please reply to this posting.
