So, I got the most exciting message a writer can get. A publisher wants to publish my work! But… I can’t find them on the internet nor have I ever heard of them. They state in their message that they are new and that they want to fully fund the publishing. They call themselves JP PUBLISHING GROUP LTD, Does anyone have tips on how to verify if this is legitimate?
If they have contacted you through Wattpad, report them. It is most likely a scam and they are poaching which is against Wattpad’s guidelines. A publisher will never contact you directly so it is best to report it
I couldn’t find them either – and I even searched publisher databases.
That means they’re either a total scam or brand new. You don’t want either.
Report them – they’re violating terms of service.
It’s exciting to be approached, but that truly isn’t how it works. Good on 'ya for coming here to verify. Report them, then block them!
Thank you so much for your help!
Run away as fast as you can.
I know it’s already solved but within 5 minutes I was able to find them on google, so I don’t know why others couldn’t.
But yes they’ve been incorporated for only 2 months, like everyone has said run, block, report, move on
