You can send a take down notice (do a web search for a template you can fill out and email), not just an email asking for the book to be removed.

But other than that, there's nothing to do but move on and keep writing.

All they want is your email and credit card. The do NOT have any books available. I signed in to get a book not available elsewhere that I could find. I was sent to a website called "playyeah". The data I was given was that I would get the free download if I gave my credit card data. So, I did, but then I went back to get the download, and they would not give me one. I tried to log in, but I could not. They gave no contact data. So, I went to"Playyeah", and phoned customer service. The person said they are NOT associated with Bookee or Go Bookee. I also found out that my credit card would be debitted for 35 dollars by Playyeah if I did not cancel in 4 days! That had not been on the Playyeah website! I quickly canceled my Playyeah account!

So, Go Bookee and Playyeah are working together as a scam to take money from people who want free downloads of written materials.

DO NOT GO TO GO BOOKEE or to PLAYYEAH

They are simply theifs!

Avoid them.

Ignore them.
