Anyone had interaction with this outfit recently? They've been posting 'freelance writers wanted' ads all over the internet for the past few weeks. They've got a 'blog' set up (it's painful to look at):
but no web site.
My hubby and I run an online writers' forum (The Write Idea http://www.helenwhittaker.net/phpBB2). One of our members posted a query about them, research and intelligent questioning ensued and then ... MF Publishing London joined our forum as a member. I let him in to see what would happen.
Big mistake! A guy named Paul from MF Publishing London has subsequently:
* threatened us with legal action
* misspelled the word 'libelous' numerous times
* contacted our web provider to lodge a complaint
* threatened us ... again ... with legal action
* made several demands to remove posts he deems objectionable and, even though we have complied with all of his requests, once again, threatened legal action
At The Write Idea, we have merely asked questions regarding the validity of MF Publishing London, querying who is running it, what their qualifications are and where the money is coming from to pay the writers they are trying to hire.
Please let me know if any of you out there have had dealings with this organization. I'm becoming increasingly annoyed by this guy Paul and his bullying methods.
