  • Yes. If they say they have a book with your daughter's photo in it that they want YOU to pay for, it's a scam? I used to enter poems into a contest only to find out it was a scam. They would send me the exact same thing, telling me it will be published in a book and if I want to see it I will have to pay $80.00 for it. It was b.s.

  • Well did you put her in a pageant or anything like that? Did you send her picture out for a contest recently? Unless you can reach someone at the office, I would not go forward with this. Sounds like a scam if you didnt enter anything.

  • SCAM! First of all, if you're chosen to be in something that is lagit, then you wouldn't have to buy anything.
    It's the same as pictures.com and poetry.com .. They try to get you to purchase something and say they want to publish your work, but it is a scam. All a scam.

  • It's a scam. My mother once had a poem published in one of those books and she was all excited. I tried to explain it to her but she bought the book. Chances are you will get a book with the picture in it if you really want it. They print them up cheaply then sell them for big bucks so it's not illegal, just unethical.
