I ordered some books at http://dustyschmidt.net/ on May 11th and never received any shipment. I tried contacting the company through four seperate email addresses listed on their site or Paypal. Never received a reply.

The books were supposed to ship next business day and take 3-5 business days to arrive.

When I made the order, the websites security certificate was expired (and no doubt still is). I don't believe this is the source of the issue, considering the company has not responded to my emails.

When my order was made I received an automated email receipt. $35 was Paypal'ed to Imagine media LLC.

Currently disputing my payment on Paypal. Imagine media LLC has made no attempt to respond or react to the dispute. At the moment I have to wait 10 days and see if they respond to the dispute on Paypal. I can tell you right now they won't.

As far as I can tell the company is no longer functioning. Still taking money though!

That is all.


On a side note the main book I wanted is Dusty Schmidt's 'Treat Your Poker Like A Business'. Dusty really knows his stuff and I expect it to be an interesting read. Going to have to pay double the price and get it on Amazon or something now...

Seriously???????

Is he going to teach you the art of stealing? The guy has just nicked $35 off you. (I don't care if he is no longer or never was in charge of the company which no longer exists, it has his name and he was clearly involved, still his responsibility).

Update: After being forced to wait 10 days to allow a reply from the company on Paypal, no reply ever came as expected. Paypal finally reviewed the case and immidiately decided in my favor. $35 has been refunded to my account.


This whole thing has really gotten me curious about Dusty Schmidt and what exactly he is up to? He was planning on coming out with a 'Treat Your Poker Like a Business 2' earlier this year and that has yet to happen. The company selling his original book seems to be no longer functioning. Oddly enough this same company is the only seller of his book on ebay. Imaginemedia-llc is still currently offering his book on Ebay even though they appear to no longer exist or operate?!

Also, I noticed Dusty is no longer a Team Online Pro on Pokerstars. Did he decide to leave Pokerstars or was he kicked out. Then, after did he just straight up walk away from his publishing business? Is he still working on his second book or did he abandon that too?

?

I know he left Pokerstars after Black Friday because he could no longer play on Pokerstars.
