Crimson Publishers LLC is a group of predatory publishers who will take your money and promise to deliver high-quality premium journals. The Crimson Publishers LLC are ruining the good name of Crimson Publishers who have developed a strong reputation in the market. People are often confused between this group of predatory publishers and the genuine publishers. With so many scams, frauds as well as complaints listed against Crimson Publishers LLC, it is a good idea to stay away from these predatory publishers.

My friend recently had a really bad experience with the group of predatory publishers known as Crimson Publishers LLC. He paid 250 dollars for the premium scientific books on palaeontology. He had to prepare a report on the Jurassic era for his school project. Crimson Publishers LLC promised to offer the books at extremely cheap and discounted rates. Little did my friend know that this was all a part of a big fraud. He did read a couple of negative reviews against the Crimson Publishers LLC, however, decided to go ahead with the purchase since it seemed like a fair deal.

Crimson Publishers LLC promised to deliver an entire series of books that cost over 1500 dollars in the retail market at 500 dollars. My friend was excited since he would finally have the resources from Crimson Publishers LLC to complete his school project on time. He never thought that these predatory publishers would scam him.

I suggest all school and university students stay away from the con publishers at Crimson Publishers LLC to save precious money and time.

Initially, Crimson Publishers LLC did not pose any threat of fraud or scam with its cash on delivery services. This is the main reason why my friend opted for the services in the first place. He placed the order 1 month in advance so that he had ample amount of time to complete the project. The con publishers at Crimson Publishers LLC promised to deliver the books to his doorstep within 1 week.

Now Crimson Publishers LLC are one of the most professional groups of predatory publishers that we have seen in a while. They put on a great show and keep you in the loop for a long time to loot the money. Crimson Publishers LLC showed a fake courier tracking script on their website. We could see the changes in the location of the books every day. On the day of the delivery, my friend got a text message saying that the books were out for delivery. He waited patiently for the whole day for Crimson Publishers LLC to deliver the books. However, they never reached his doorstep on time.

We contacted the helpline number of the con publishers at Crimson Publishers LLC to find out more about the delivery status. Ross from the Crimson Publishers LLC team picked up the call to talk to us. He said that he will look into the matter and get back to us within 24 hours.

After this, we lost contact with Crimson Publishers LLC for a week. One week later, Ross called us and said that he had a family emergency and had to take off again for a week. He apologized and said that they will speed up the process again. I suspected foul play and a hint of scam at the con publishers again. Is there no one else on the team of Crimson Publishers LLC? Anyways, we played along since the project was due in just 15 days.

I should not have trusted the predatory publishers at Crimson Publishers LLC again. I was just about to write a negative review when I got a call from Ross again. He said that the courier agency could not find the exact address for delivery. Therefore, Crimson Publishers LLC needed 50% of the total amount, that is, 250 dollars in advance so that they can arrange a custom delivery.

We were shocked! The main reason why we opted for Crimson Publishers LLC despite a few negative reviews was the cash on delivery option. Now, even that perk was taken away from us. Nonetheless, with less than 2 weeks to the project deadline, we had no choice but to pay the 250 dollars to Crimson Publishers LLC for a faster delivery. After completion of the payment, we got a call from Ross again saying that a dedicated delivery person from Crimson Publishers LLC will deliver the books over the weekend. We were relieved since my friend still had 1 week to complete the project. Now, we never knew that we were falling into a big fraud.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday, all went by a flash without any hint of delivery from Crimson Publishers LLC. We called the predatory publishers to lodge a complaint, find out the status of the delivery, and lodge a complaint. This time Hannah from the Crimson Publishers LLC team picked up the call. She said that she was the direct supervisor of Ross and would look into the fraud quickly. She assured that we will get our books within the next 2 days. Hannah seemed extremely professional and helpful. We were finally relieved when we got an email from Crimson Publishers LLC that said that the complaint will be resolved within the next 24 hours.

However, the negative reviews did have some truth to it. We waited for over 24 hours after the call, to get the necessary books. Now, we were on an extremely short deadline to complete the project. We never expected Crimson Publishers LLC to showcase such high levels of unprofessionalism.

After the wait, we tried calling Crimson Publishers LLC again. This time no one picked up the call. We tried for 2 days but no one picked up the call at the headquarters of these predatory publishers. Eventually, we lost 250 dollars to Crimson Publishers LLC and had to purchase the books from a local stationery at 1500 dollars to complete the project on time. Not only did we lose time and money behind these predatory publishers, but got an extremely low grade of D minus on the project. I suggest everyone stay away from the fraud going on at the Crimson Publishers LLC.
