Oooooo Good to know!! Its super annoying. Calls every night between 5:45 - 6:30.
I think this company is hired nationally to perform this service for newspaper companies all over the country.
I also got a call form this place. However, it was legit for me. I had let my newspaper subscribtion in the Metro Detorit area lapse. They called to offer me the deal. It was a great price to re-subscribe, so I did it. Gave my credit card number, and figured i was convered under my credit card company if it wasnt legit. Worked out fine. They chared my card the $26 and my newspaper arrived again within 2 Sundays.
It is a scam. I had recently let my newspapaer subscription lapse. This number called me numerous times and I finally answered. They seemed to know all about me (name, when subscription dropped, etc.) They offered me a 1/2 off deal to re-subscribe for a year. Thinking they were legit, I gave my Visa number (I had been using it for years with the Commercial Appeal). Promised delivery would resume in 2 to 3 business days. No paper ever came. Nothing ever was charged to my account so I closed it before they could charge on it.
I answered and they hung up on me. I'm in Memphis and just cancelled my newspaper subscription. Thanks for the info
Recently stopped a newspaper. Not sure what these people really wanted. Waste of my minutes.
I am also in MS and keep getting calls from this #. I did just cancel my subscription to the Commercial Appeal paper in Memphis.
Have received 3 call in last 2 days - late afternoon and evening (10pm the one night). Leaves no message
Do you have any reason to think this is a scam ?
Are these people on the up and up? Is this somehow a scam ?
Same here - called three times at 7:15 tonight. Once was "unknown" the other two showed the number. Times Union?? I am in MS, what do I want with NJ news? ha
What do they want from me??
Thanks very much for the verification. As soon as you stop any kind of newspaper service, they try to get you back by offering sweet deals!
THIS WAS FROM TIMES UNION NEWSPAPER
Me too, today at 5.45 central time. Didn't answer the call, they didn't leave a voicemail.
Got a call from this number at about 6:30 central time tonight. Did not answer, and they did not leave a message. Don't know how they got my cell #. Kind of annoying.
