Eber & Wein Publishing are a vanity press that prey on unsuspecting victims (writers) who are new to the world of "publishing" (printing & distribution of books). They tricked me into sending them a couple of my poems by telling me they saw my poems on facebook & would love review some of my work at their website. They write back telling me to enter their contest. I did. They said I was runner up. But didn't win. I was ok with that.

Then I get another letter stating my poetry would be in their books. I asked if I would get royalties because my poetry is copywriten and under a publisher associated with ASCAP, BMI & Sound Exchange & I understand "print royalties". But they said "No". So I said "You can't use my poems if I cant get paid." They turn around write me saying they're using it anyways & use my poem after I said "No". I write them saying not to use my work. Then they send me another letter saying they are re-entering me in their contest again without my permission, again. So I assume it will be used in more books again? There are also many complaints against them across the web and some complaints speak of outright theft of funds from consumers. Not just poets. Links below.

Crooks, Thieves. Just really scummy that company.

VUDU saw this review & made things right for me by resetting my account and reloading all of my paid for movies. It took a min. But they did their job... Finally. Thanks VUDU for getting my movies in order and playable. I guess I don't need to leave VUDU after all.

I bought 2 DVD's from Walmart that had VUDU stickers on them that said "FREE digital download if you buy this DVD". I got "Planet of the Apes" & "Friday the 13th". I try to download the movies and Friday the 13 didn't download all the way and Planet of the Apes didn't download at all. I called VUDU to get my movies on my VUDU page and they said they would fix it. 1 week went by, no movies on my page. 2 weeks went by I call they said they now needed a copy of my Walmart receipt and they wanted pictures of the DVD boxes and they would give me my movies. I send the the receipt and pics. 3 weeks go by, and still no movies on my VUDU page. I call again, they say their working on it and have to ask the studios if they can put it on my VUDU page. I assume they were referring to Hollywood Studios. It's going on a month & a few days. I never did get the other half of my Friday the 13th movie nor did I receive the Planet of the Apes at all. I have my e-mails between us and would love to post them here so you guys can actually see the way they're acting with me. I feel I was scammed into buying DVD's in the name of more American theft against more unsuspecting victims.

"Poetry Nation / Eber & Wein Publishing" are another poetry website to stay clear of. Based in the united states. For 2 years I've been trying to delete my account but there is no way to. I decided to delete my account after they put my poetry in print more than once without my permission. Then I started noticing complaints against them accross the web. There is even a website dedicated to filing complaints specifically against Poetry Nation/Eber & Wein Publishing. I've tried to be civil with these people but they are refusing to respond. I have contacted Poetry Nation/Eber & Wein on 3 separate occasions to delete my account, but they are not responding to me for some reason? I also found some dirt on this website. They are stealing poetry works & money from people. It's in the link below. Alot of pissed off people being stolen from by poetry nation/Eber & Wein Publishing. Not to mention accross the internet. Including facebook. On facebook there is a page dedicated to filing complaints against them. Thats how bad it's getting. I have renamed my poetry nation page to "Let me go Poetry Nation".

I supposedly had hundreds & hundreds & hundreds of "views" to my poetry, but not one comment or thumbs up or thumbs down. Found that odd. So I decided to just delete my poems. But as I tried to delete my poetry I found I couldn't. They have a button on the "edit" page that says "delete works". But when you hit delete, your poem just sits there and is never deleted??? So I then decide to just leave the website. "Here is where it gets fishy & you probably shouldn't join." When I try to delete my account, I couldn't. There's no "delete account button or page. So I naturally wrote to the administrators, but no response at all. I've dealt with this with in the past with an american poetry website about two years ago & had to make threats of tort litigation (suing) so the Co. would stop publishing my poems for profit in their book while I starve. Can't prove they're stealing yet, but I can prove I can't delete my works or my account. So I just re-edited my poems to all say "Cosmofunnel refuses to let me go for some reason". I have renamed my page "Goodbye Cosmofunnel" because they won't allow me to delete my works or page.

Don't disrespect artists Cosmofunnel! We arent your prisoners.
