Thank you, Daniel, for warning us and starting this thread.

The same story happened to me with a US publisher.

Jason Gregory, from J&O Railroad productions, was producing a book on the SD70 in Nov. 2014. He contacted me to get pictures of the SD70 working in Southern Peru. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=355833

I provided him with a selection of pictures. Then several times over the years, Jason promised to send me a copy of the book ( most recent was in July 2018 ), which never materialized. However, the book is still for sale on his web site. https://jovideoproduction.net/collections/all. The number of reminder emails has increased over the years to no avail.

So, if I understand well, this gentleman (not sure about “gentle”) is making money selling books made with pictures he does not dare to pay even with one complimentary copy.
I am happy to warn the RP community.

It would be a good idea to keep this thread alive and feed it with testimonies of the same vein, to keep a log of deceitful publishers.
