I feel compelled to write about my nightmare with Book Venture. In late November I happened to receive a call from D____ F_____ telling me my book was brought to their attention and want me to be successful on my marketing plans.
At first I went back and forth with him, but eventually came up with an agreement. The initial payment went through on my credit card. All of a sudden, I noticed payments of $7,000.00 made against my card. Initially Mr.
F_____ said that was the agreement. I told him I received the "contract" faxed over to me, but I have yet to sign and return. I was told it didn't matter because everything was recorded and I agreed to this. In thinking back I may have agreed, but not for this amount.
As far as I'm concerned this agreement is over. Little did I know this opened up a bunch of problems. For the next five months, Book Venture billed my credit account $7,000.00 each month. Several calls were made to which I only could leave a message.
Out of that five month period I actually made contact. In short I was told the reason for the withdrawal was they are working on to get me an interview on the FOX morning shows. Needless to say I never heard from anybody. The second time I was able to hook up with him I was given the song and dance routine they are in the process of selecting a director and cast in order to begin filming a movie.
Each time he cut the conversation short saying he'll call back. He never did! Again, I made several attempts to contact somebody at Book Publishing, but I would only get a recording. The creditor for the charge card refuses to accept this as fraud because I get out the account number.
Somewhere out there somebody is having a grand time with $35,000.00 of my money and my creditor tell me something to the effect," too bad!" Mr.
Michael Spelling, I hope you will notice this and use your windfall of $35,000.00 and teach you and your employees some common courtesy and manners so you don't receive messages from pissed off "customers" such as myself since you and your credibility doesn't fall further in the dumper. Cliff Koch
