Sales Skimming 11/2018 EVIDENCE SCAMAZON KDP

November Royalties hit soon. Woohoo-I will be rich. NOT.

I know that I purchased 5 paperback books to test Scamazon’s integrity. I had the following known orders:

  1. 2 in Virginia, which were accounted for

  2. 1 in Clarks Green, PA which WAS NOT ACCOUNTED FOR

  3. 5 to myself in PA -NOT ACCOUNTED FOR

  4. 1 ordered to NJ

  5. 1 ordered by a stranger. I felt bad enough prying for the order number and did not ask for the geographical location.-NOT ACCOUNTED FOR

7 books with sales not recorded. A total of $14.21 that I am aware of and not getting paid for. The royalty payment hits in 13 days and here I am knowing I have been undercut by $14.21 minimum. Sick and twisted greedy mongers. They are NOT just victimizing me despite the threats and games they are playing with me.





Nasty not Nice

I used to always opt for Scamazon’s Delayed Shipping to get the whopping $1 digital credit. Turns out the last time I opted for the delayed shipping, I never got my royalties and was told it was due to shipping time frames. I gave them as many days as they needed. They did me dirty then.

I unfortunately just had to order from them because Walmart doesn’t have everything I need. I used to be nice and offer them to take their sweet time with my shipping.

No more. I want that stuff in two days. I don’t need it in two days. I just want them to hustle in physical work rather than hustle authors’ royalties.

I just wrote down on a list to cancel Scamazon Slime (Amazon Prime).

No Numbers

Half of my web traffic is not registering, oddly enough after Boardman, OR came out to play. Despite taking away two days of data, my traffic was up 587%. When I have spikes in traffic, my books sell.

Yet, no sales are registering and no Swindle pages have been read. Please, if you see I call out corporate corruption, imagine what I do to my personal life.

Let me show you first-hand how much it sucks to be a self-publishing author. The good thing about this is that Amazon has assisted me in seeking employment. Thank you. I obviously make nothing from my books.

From Melancholic to Korporate

Thoughts for a new paperback book?

One corporate machine

Robotic and unreactive

Corruption is unclean

And civically inactive

Such pomp and circumstance

The one-ring global circus act

Authors do not stand a chance

In a monopoly formed with tact

Their corporate greed

Ensures profits breed

Planting an evil seed

In those who e-read

They slice and cut writers’ royalty

Only the king gets to wear a crown

Left with dependence, not loyalty

They remain the only act in town

Silence Strikes Again

Some accomplishments of mine in one day:

  1. Scamazon was on my website for 3:02 (hours, not minutes). Waiting for an executive to reach out and REACT.

  2. My audience is expanding globally and organically. This means my book sales will spike, but not like Scamazon will pay me for it. If interested, please purchase from my website under the Books tab. Most of my purchases have been legitimate. They made a fatal error though on my last order. I have written seven books in less than six months. That is a lot of hard work to see my earnings stolen from me and to hold a blatant disregard to me who makes them money as an author and a customer who has to buy things from there because they have the market cornered.

  3. My largest performing platform is LinkedIn. As I near 700 connections (after deleting 100 over the past few months), I will only continue to connect. LinkedIn is a professional website, so they are interested in content regarding poor corporate citizenship.

  4. I have learned when it is deemed fit, Amazon Digital Services sometimes serves as not only an Expanded Distributor of their own company, but also moonlights as DBA Amazon. This is a tactic to skim royalties by stating they are an expanded distributor of their own company.

  5. Web traffic was up 800% last month before my big reveal. I should have had some pomp and circumstance, put on a circus act, and a show as to my big reveal, similar to their tactics revealing their HQ2. As they dazzled the country with deception, they lost sight of the business. NYC-keep fighting the good fight. The heart and souls are in the boroughs that are not Manhattan. NYC you got this. No one steals your souls and fight for your beliefs. You have an army, I have just myself. I support you wholeheartedly. Web traffic in just three days from my big reveal has increased 123%. Also, I believe it has had 389 visitors and people are on here now.

  6. My RSS has tripled in the course of 3 days. Thank you everyone and the thing that I have always been the most proud of is I have a 0% bounce rate like always.

  7. I will be awaiting a call from an executive. Not a supervisor. Supervisors are not sufficient for me. I want a big fish. Someone high on the food chain. I want an agent of change, I want solutions, I want honesty and integrity. When did corruption become cool?

  8. Keep checking back. We are only beginning. I have set up an official office and am ready.

  9. I have been like a patient cat and I finally caught the mouse. Successful preying is strategy, patience, and silence. No pomp and circumstance.

  10. The FTC needs to move on this. I am the most impatient person and will do this on my own.

I have four more days of being bound by agreement to offer the Kindle version for free for the Memoirs. I apologize, but I will never have a book of mine be read for free because it is a scam. “Reach more readers make more money” is a complete sham.

We are talking about Scamazon or should I call them Shamazon now?

I am STILL waiting for them to call me. I will have Melissa’s Manic Memoirs 2030 by the time they call me.

I sent them an email asking if they forgot about me to them yesterday. Re-donk-ulous.

I also emailed another agent and guess what? No response! The risk was not greater than the reward.
