Is World Poetry Movement genuine or is it just one big scam to get money from unsuspecting amateur poets.  The following is an ad from World Poetry Movement:

There are many poetry sites featuring poetry competitions available on the internet today. Many of the requirements that need to be met to become the winner are quite daunting. This is not the case here.
World Poetry Movement is an organization that promotes and encourages the art of poetry among amateur poets. Their mission is “to eliminate the traditional barriers that prevent most people from having their message heard.”
Their site features award winning poets, and the prizes are quite attractive. Presently they are running an “Open Amateur Poetry Contest.” Poems are limited to 2,375 characters.
Contestants can win $1,000 or 115 other prizes to be awarded in the next few weeks. Some of the best poems received will also be considered for publication. Poems are judged in the order in which they are received

I saw their ad and sent in a poem and the following is the response I got from them:

Dear Angella,

It’s been a great year for you!

P.S. These two beautiful lapel pins were custom designed to honor you and your poetry. Normally $79.90, GET BOTH FREE. Don’t delay. Click Here to Order Your Copy of Stars In Our Hearts Now and Get Your Free Poet Award Pins!

My question is, if these pins are supposed to be free why should I have to order a book to get them and why is the book so expensive?  This whole thing appears to be a scam, however if anyone has actually won anything from World Poetry Movement please let me know.  Those of you who have not caught on, please do not allow yourself to be scammed by these people.
