The RAG literary scam. SETH PORTER, DAN REILLY When one decides to make an effort to write professionally, he soon inevitably is confronted by a simple classic scam that go like this... 1. The aspiring writer seeks outlets for his work. 2. He finds a promising outlet through some paid advertisement, typically offering employment. 3. The outlet then contacts the writer with not employment, but an offer filled with optimism, as if his success is just a submission away to the outlet. Somewhere in the ensuing paragraphs, once the writer is drawn in, follows a stipulation for a submission fee. Then continues a few more paragraphs of the success the writer will most definitely receive from his submission. 4. The writer pays for his submission. 5. The writer loses his money and gains nothing; furthermore, his hopes are shattered because he was duped into believing the odds of success were anything more than, in a best case scenario, an innocuous fraction of a percent. What makes this scam particularly repugnant is that it preys not on durable personalities but a typically emotionally fragile, gullible, and insolvent section of society-- creative writers. Because it is such an easy scam to employ, its occurrences are sadly common. The website THE RAG , , , where work SETH PORTER [email protected] , and DAN REILLY [email protected] , is a classic example of this scam. Among other outlets, THE RAG scam preys on its victims at under the "writers seeking employment" section. If you are reading this... 1.
