Contacted by Dreame

#1

Hi everyone, I was contacted by an editor from Dreame. It’s a new platform originated from FicFun. I’m very hesitant when I get message from people because usually they are a scam.

Does anybody know if Dreame is also a scam because I’ve never heard of them before.

Thanks

Yeah I was just poached too - it’s a total scam, report the account and include a screenshot of their PM to you.

It’s also not new. I was poached once last year as well. Don’t know why they’re pretending it’s new.

Also a huge indicator that they’re a scam: they say they’re for female orientated work and I don’t write that. They also didn’t include my username in their PM, it just said “dear author”

Defo a scam.

Can you please report them, so we can sort them out? @lilyfanfiction? Thank you! They really should leave WP authors well alone!

They’ve been making their rounds for a while now. They tried to poach me twice last year and then again just a couple days ago.

Gotta love scam artists trying to steal wattpad authors.

The two last year were before I was an ambassador. But yeah with this latest one I got a good chuckle out of it. Fairly sure they didn’t even pay attention to who I was. They just cut and paste my book title and sent out their form message. The one I got was word for word what @AWFrasier got but from a different account (since by the time she got hers the one I reported was already closed)

I used to get poached on Wattpad for the very same reason, but I just ignore them.

At least they mentioned a book of yours in the PM. In mine they didn’t even bother with that :joy:

Well on case you get contacted by them, their account is weeniem8. Already reported them :joy:
I can’t believe how many of those accounts have been bothering people for the past few years.

They are - but it’s a ridiculously low amount. Not worth it.
