Xlibris - Bjogus Content Evaluations;
by BuoyantNymph500 #14957521.1
After a down payment of over $400, Xlibris Content Evaluators rejected my manuscript 3 times citing bogus libelous or privacy issues. I revised the manuscript two times based on their vague description of the issues. When they rejected the third revision, I requested cancellation of my contract and a refund.
instead, they hit my debit card account for another $384. On my next call to company, I was told that my refund was being processed.
I have since called or emailed at least five times inquiring about the status of my refund request. Those calls have gone unanswered.
