Several years back, a young Indian entrepreneur and professed book lover, Ratnesh Goswami (professional bio at https://in.linkedin.com/in/ratnesh-goswami-bb93b662, Facebook profile at https://www.facebook.com/AuthorRatnesh) began reviewing books professionally for the then-bargain price of $29.99 per review. His website www.enasreviews.com grew in popularity and orders flooded in. And that is when he ceased writing reviews. Mission accomplished: steady income, no deliverables, no recourse.
Ratnesh had two accomplices at Jay Digital Services LLP , Divyesh Pratap (https://in.linkedin.com/in/divyeshpratap) and, previously, Durgesh Pratap Singh (https://www.linkedin.com/in/durgesh-pratap-singh-a1a41632) – the owners by proxy of enasreviews.com. The web servers for Enas Reviews are operated by domainsbyproxy.com, a proven serial host of pfishing and porn sites that protects the privacy of its domain registrants zealously.
Ratnesh's other venture is, Book-Tweep, https://booktweep.com/. It promises 300 book tweets for $35. An empty promise. booktweep.com is registered with domainsbyproxy.com, meaning it's as trustworthy as enasreviews.com.
The only redress anyone has, short of filing suit over their $29.99 or $35 outlay, is to protect other authors and publishers from being similarly defrauded, and to shame the defrauders. This is my contribution to that effort.
