Has anyone heard of these guys? I don't see them on P&E. I submitted a query to them and I got a pretty quick response (phone call) which is making me a tad suspicious.

Legit? Not? Any words of help would be welcome.

I googled, but all I came up with was Warner Worldwide Publishing Company. Is it them?

(and this should be in bewares and background checks)

The first one I found was in Spain, and doesn't seem to have anything but this uninformative page here: http://www.worldwidepublishing.net/

Or...
Right down at the bottom of this beautifully laid out page, is the following text:
This Marketing Program is presented to you by:

Is that the one?

Please disregard my query. These blighters are stating that they have published a couple books but I could only find one on Amazon and it was published in 2002 by another publisher.
Dear God - Please help me to find an honest and effective literary agent sometime before I die.
Peace.

Here is an update :) Back when, and before Perry Campanella used the Internet to publish, it was difficult to find his business and business associates, though this has
changed since:

Came back at: http://www.perrycampanella.com/ (and joined FB), to tout Media Shift program, wherein ...

How This Works
I see you have an E-Book with Amazon, Maybe with your Publisher also!
I want to purchase your book and send them to you to sign for me!
I will send you our Confidential Agreement first to be also sure you do not start
your own service as this is our very New Author Sponsor Program! Okay?

The deal is this: We pay for your e-Book as we order a paper-back book - Right!
Now we want you to "Sign it for Worldwide Publishing Inc. - That's it!
We will sell the books - You have already been paid for - This is where it get's fun!
We want to place the book at brick and mortar book stores so more people will pay you
for more e-Books! That is right!!

Now you have more readers!
We purchase more Books and resell them to other Book Stores - On and On.

Well please accept our program with our Agreement soon to follow.
Add Yourself to our "Sell My Book List" - Here: http://www.perrycampanella.com/Save-On-Books.html
What Country are you from? W.W.P. Inc. - We will Publish "Your Book" in any Language - except Chinese
Perry Campanella
I got nothin'.

But it's (relatively) clear he's in promotion now, rather than publishing.
