Over the summer I was contacted by WWS Magazine. Below is the content of the email...Hey So Fly Team this is Stuart the media director at WWS Magazine.
I wanted to follow up with you on the music you sent us. We checked it out yesterday, and it’s great stuff, I am interested in doing a feature on you to show our readers more. We mostly cover Top 40, but we always support good independent musicians and try to get them heard through our network.
We have readers in more than 25 countries and a feature gives you a chance to put yourself in front of them. If they like it, your music can spread fast.
The format is like an interview so we’ll send you some questions and put it all together.
Below is an interview we did recently with TI as an example of what it will look like.
We’re also connected with a bunch of other music magazines and blogs. After we do a Feature, we send your stuff out to our whole network so they can check you out too.
In order to cover our editing costs, there is a one time standard fee of $45. If that isn’t a problem for you, I’d love to feature you, I still have a couple spots left.
If you have any questions or anything, let me know. I’m here to help. Thanks.
We paid $75 dollars to have a special feature and nothing was done. This has been since June/July!

Never Delivered Promotion I Paid For
Back in December 2013 I paid $30 for promotion by WWS Magazine that promised 10,000 youtube views within 4 days. After the weeks went on with no increase in views I made numerous attempts to contact them. Initially I spoke with someone named Heather Becerra who kept acting like it was all a big misunderstanding and promising that the views would begin soon. After it had been a couple months I filed an initial complaint on here and demanded a full refund in addition to the completion of the service I paid for. Eventually in April 2014 (4 months after my initial payment) someone named Greg Mouton contacted me, claiming to represent WWS and apologizing. He claimed that the Heather person I'd initially spoken to no longer worked there and promised to meet my request of the refund plus the promotion I'd paid for. Initially he seemed legit, as I did receive the refund via paypal, however he then asked me to remove the complaint on here before proceeding with the promotion. This should have been a red flag to me, however unfortunately I went ahead and did that, and big surprise, I received NO PROMO. He followed the same procedure as before, initially apologizing and acting like it was a big mistake, and then stopped responding completely. I have sent several emails to him demanding he perform the promotion I paid for now 6 MONTHS AGO, but no response. Bottom line is WWS is a COMPLETE SCAM. They clearly aren't capable of doing he promo they promise and the only reason I even got the initial refund was cause I hassled them so much about it. I'm really more interested in warning my fellow musicians out there than anything else at this point. DO NOT GIVE THESE GUYS YOUR MONEY whatever you do. They are criminals and scammers that prey on up and coming, working musicians. Stay clear of WWS Magazine and spread the word!!

fake wwsmagazine artist feature scam
I was contacted by a so called media director at WWS Magazine named Stuart Rosemand about some music and portfolio that I submitted to them to be featured on there website...I was told that they love my music and would love to feature me on there site.. at first I was skeptical about doing it because they charged me $75 to be featured...But they looked legit so I went along with it thinking what the heck its just $75 anyway they set me up with the registration fee of $75 and sent me an online interview format for the feature that I had to complete in order to be featured on there site.. I finished everything that was required to be featured on there website then I received a response message confirming that everything is good and ready for me to be featured on wwsmagazine and my feature would be published on there in a few days. So the next day I get another message from them claiming that there website is under construction and they will resume publishing features on March 1st 2014. I payed them and completed the interview and everything on February 22, 2014 they told me that everything would be published to wws magazine a few days after february 22, 2014...I'm WARNING ANY OTHER ARTIST OUT THERE DONT BE FOOLED ABOUT WWS MAGAZINE THEY LOOK PROFESSIONAL BUT ITS A SCAM THEY WILL GET YOU OUT OF YOUR MONEY ITS A SCAM PLEASE STAY AWAY ITS A SCAM PLEASE STAY AWAY WWS MAGAZINE IS A SCAM IF YOUR EVER CONTACTED BY SOMEONE FROM WWS MAGAZINE ABOUT BEING FEATURED ON THERE WEBSITE DONT RESPOND BACK ITS A SCAM I REPEAT ITS A SCAM STAY AWAY

Completely Ignoring Me and not delivering service after being paid via paypal
I paid WWS Magazine $30 via paypal for a guaranteed "10,000 youtube views in 3-4 days" for my music video. I did not receive this or a refund. I paid WWS Magazine $30 via paypal for a guaranteed "10,000 youtube views in 3-4 days" for my music video. After 4 days had passed I still had no new views. At this point I attempted to contact WWS, however I received no response. I then opened a complaint with paypal saying that I had not received the promised product. Someone from WWS responded quickly, apologizing, saying it had "slipped out of the system" and that they would get right on it. They asked me to close the paypal complaint so they could begin the promotion. I did so and a week later I had still not received any new views. At this point I attempted to reopen the paypal dispute only to find that once it was closed it could not be reopened. It would appear that WWS knew this and this is why they asked me to close it in the first place prior to delivering the promised views. It would appear to me that this is a complete scam and that their intention was to steal the money and provide no product in return. I have made several attempts at contact and received no response. If nothing else I hope to prevent anyone else in my situation from falling victim to these scammers.
