Consumer reviews about Raider Publishing International

Jun 13, 2012

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!

This publisher is a thief! He stole my manuscript and published it without paying me any money. Consumer, 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.

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: [email protected]

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.

Raider is a complete scam

In 2010, Raider agreed to publish my book for me. The book took several years to write and was incredibly important to me. I spent months and months researching publishing companies to entrust my book to and I really thought I could have faith in Raider. After paying what was to me the huge sum of £850, Raider eventually published my book in July 2011.
The service from this company has been absolutely appalling. I proofread my book to an excellent standard and yet on publication it was full of mistakes and sentences that shouldn’t have been touched had been changed and even my name was spelt wrongly; the layout was poor with gaps in the text, vital footnotes were omitted and the footnote reference numbers were messed up. This broke Clause 2 of my contract, which states: ”It is specifically understood and agreed that the said volume will contain all manuscript pages as submitted by the Author.” I asked for a reprint and was denied this. Soon after its publication, Raider stopped all contact. I received none of the free copies promised me, and the extra promotion option I paid for amounted to absolutely nothing.
I received 2 Author Loyalty Compensation Forms so I knew my book had made some sales but I have never received a single penny from my book sales. My contract was meant to last 3 years but my book is still available on Amazon and appears to be selling still, 7 years later. Stress caused by all of this and ill health forced me to give up the whole matter but I cannot express how furious I am that Adam Salviani has been allowed to get away with doing this not just to me but to numerous authors, whom he has completely taken advantage of and conned in the most appalling way. I am now ready to try and fight to get justice done with this man but, as happened before, I just do not know what action to take. Any advice would be hugely appreciated.

I was just 18 in 2011, when i completed the manuscript of my debut novel. Naive about the book publishing process, i decided to find a publisher online and Raider publishing international was the first company I saw.
He was very interested in receiving my payment and pretended to be very nice to me. He gave me a persona assistant and everything was going well. My book was published within 90 days and just when i thought i had achieved a milestone, my heart sank! RPI released my book and distributed it globally without letting me know. They changed my title from Adventure of Vashika to The Adventures of Vashika. They translated my book to dozens of foreign languages without my consent. I sent thousands of emails but they cut off communication with me and didn't reply a single one. I painfully watched my precious book selling like hot cake all over the internet but never had access to a penny of my rightful royalties. Its 8years now and nit a word from RPI nor have I gotten a dime. The wound is fresh. Its the greatest hurt any human can ever experience to have 100% of your right stolen from you before your very own eyes. If i was in American i would have sewed the ### to court if i am lucky to find a probonor lawyer because I invested all my family's savings to publish my book now I'm left with nothing! May God punish Adam Salviani and his entire generation! May the sun smite him by day and the moon by night. May he die a very wretched, miserable death!
