I have received repeated call from these "magazine companies." After telling four people I didn't have any at all and being hung up on, I played them. I wen along, and answered all their questions, trying to figure out their scam. They didn't know which magazines I subscribed to. They didn't know how much I payed either. So when I told them my "drop in price to $29 monthly was an increase she was lost. Finally they wanted to verify my credit card info. She said they only knew the first four digits. Then only one, after asking how I was paying. 4 for Visa and it would be 5 for MasterCard. This is obviously a scam.

I got a call from this company asking if i received my magazines in good condition and on time.  They were unable to tell me what magaizines I subscribed to.  The only information that they could provide was I ordered a package which containted 5 magaizines, (they did no my address, name and obviously my phone no.)  I told her that I don't subsrcibe to five magazines, she said she would make a note of it in there files and hung up.

Just got a call saying I had signed up for a several magazine subscriptions and they wanted to know when I was going to pay the rest.  I didn't sign up for them, so when she couldn't tell me how much I owed, I just told her to turn it over to a collection agency.

Scammers for sure!  Report these people to your state Attorney General's office. They violate do-not-call lists and try to get credit card info over the phone. Log the calls and report each one!

This company called me twice. The first time I did hang up because I figured it was some type of promotion or offer. The second call they told me I've been receiving magazines and would like to update my info. I don't receive magazines so I asked if I'm paying for some could they tell me. He ignored my questions and told me I could talk to the supervisor at the end of the call. I said ok and he hung up. What was that? Should I be concerned?

I didn't recognize the number & I've never done business with anyone in Nebraska (as far as I know), so I let the answering machine pick up.

I also have received multiple calls from this company, wanting to renew my magazines.  When I asked which magazines, they couldn't tell me.  I called the woman on this scam, and she argued with me!  She told me that she did not have to tell me what magazines I needed to renew.  When I said that I do not pay for my magazines with a credit card number, she stated that she " could save me on my monthly payments! "  When I said I don't make monthly payments, she hung up.  SCAM!!!!

We have received countless phone calls from this phone number. The routine is exactly as described by other people. Definitely a scam all the way. I will call the New Hampshire Attorney General on this. Phone number that called is 4029820457.

This phone number, and whatever company this is keeps calling me, after saying several times that they have the wrong number. This IS harrasment, and the calls need to STOP. I work for a call center and 'No AF Phone' or 'Take me off your list' means DO NOT CALL ANYMORE! this is unbelievable, this is the dumbest scam, by far.

I have received several calls a day from this so called "magazine company".  I am getting really tired of it too!  When I do answer they want to ask me 5 questions and then they say that they will connect me to a supervisor but that they cannot do so until I answer the questions.  Then when I asked why she needed to know my age and occupation before I could speak to the supervisor I was hung up on!  This is definitely a scam!!!

These people have been calling every day for the past week or so! I don't answer since I could tell from the caller ID it was no one I knew, so I thought I would look it up- an lo and behold, it is a scam. I'm on the 'do not call' list that you get on from the internet and have been for years, so what gives? Sure is annoying!

Same as all the rest.  Guy said I was receiving magazines (I am not) and that he didn't know what they were but it was "a bundle of 5" (I am not).  They obviously work from a script since everyone else said the same thing.  I tried to call back after the guy quickly terminated the call, but only get a recorded message about going on the Do Not Call List, even though I am already on it!

Got the same call from 402-982-0457 as noted above. I asked what magazines he was calling about and he said his screen was down and he couldn't tell me.  I asked again what his name was and he said "Chris". I said "don't you have a last name?"  He said "we all have last names" then hung up.

I got a call from them today. It's absolutely a phishing scam!

When I answered, the guy said he was with the magazine company and asked how I was. I said "fine, what magazine?" He said "I see you get Maxim". That may have been a lucky guess, but it seems more likely that Maxim sold my name and phone number to some list.

The guy went on to say that he was calling to let me know that my subscription was paid through the next couple years and that I should decline anyone else who called trying to sell me more. Then he connected me with his supervisor to confirm my info.

The supervisor said they have my billing info on file, and asked me to verify the expiration date on my card. She then asked what kind of card it is and I played along and said "It's a Visa". She made some small talk reiterating what the guy told me earlier. Then she said "I see your card starts with a 4, correct?". I said yes (Visa cards always start with a 4). She said "ok, starting from the left to the right, read me your card number for verification."

At this point I told her I wasn't going to give her my number, and suggested she read it to me and I would verify it. She refused saying she wasn't sure I am who I say I am. I told her that I don't know who she is either and that I wasn't going to give her my card information. She promptly hung up on me.

Bottom line people, I work for a financial institution and see victims of this type of scam all the time. NEVER give someone your credit card number over the phone! A legitimate business will never call you out of the blue asking for it.

I have all calls on a do not call list and yet this number was able to come through on my home phone number.  My Mom answered and they asked for me and when she asked who was calling, they hung up.  They never waited for response from my Mom whether I was home or not.

I also got a call very similar to Joe A above. They stated not to talk to anyone else from another company that calls. They were going to continue my 5 Magazine sub for a low price of only $3.99/WEEK. I don't get 5 different mags, and the ones that I get have already been paid. (Someone did sign me up for Essence, which is funny since I am a white male, and the mag is geared toward black females.)  When I heard this, I told him the price works out to over $200 a year for Maxim. He then told me that I only have to pay for the first 2 years, and the next 3 would be free. I told him no way, and he politely ended the call.

I also received a call from this number today. They hung up and did not leave any message when voicemail picked up.

Seems there is a very good possibility of a connection to MAXIM MAGAZINE & them selling their new subscriber list to anyone who will pay them for it.
I recently started receiving a 12 month gift subscription to the magazine.

I will report this to the DONOTCALL.GOV site as my nbr is on the Do Not Call list.

I have received a call from them twice, but I'll never answer, so they're wasting their time.  I recently signed up for Maxim.  So they must have sold my phone number to these people.  I don't remember even giving my phone number when I signed up.  Anyway, still haven't received my first Maxim magazine.

I received a call from this number, too.  I, also, filed a complaint with the FCC & the National Do Not Call Registry as soon as I received the call.  Anyone that receives a call from this number should do the same.  The only way to stop these horrible people is to REPORT THEM.
