About, Donation & Contact Info

We are Modern Snake Oil, a small non-profit staffed with dedicated volunteers who are veterans in their fields. We work to expose predatory people and organizations that attempt to milk the hard earned money of artists and other creative types.

Modern Snake Oil was founded in 2016 and is led by Jeremy D. Pavleck. Currently, we are actively exposing 9 organizations and researching 17 more.

Our promise to you:

  1. All media used when discussing a vanity press owner – screen shots mainly – will have the date and time it was archived embedded in it.
  2. All things presented as facts, meant to sway your opinion, will include the exact source of the data to allow you to do your own research
  3. We will NEVER offer a product for sale, not endorse one. We live by donations alone to minimize the chance of bias

It takes more money than one would think to research and organize data on so many organizations, if you’d like to donate:
