I just got a call, saying I won a watch... I cancelled it all and am now going to the bank to change my number
I just received the same call as everyone else. I have only had this cell number for 3 months and only give it out to people I trust and companies I do business with. It appears that my information was sold and I cannot figure out who. This phone is not registered to me. The agent did not have time to get rude with me because I immediately recognized the call to be fake. I never register for sweepstakes. I told Mike Malone to remove this number from their database any hung up.
I've read all your comments & oddly enough he said his name but never said he was with pch & he did mention a magazine, but didn't say any names or titles, & then said you don't have to buy one your already entered into the sweepstakes, then he said your on your way & hung up~another funny thing is earlier in the day, I received 2 calls, both of which I missed, I called both back & they were to a fax machine, but a different number from the one mike used~scary!!!
Sorry, I didn't remember you saying that you ordered their magazines~but I still don't believe that who ever called me is legit!!
Then why would a professional company finish what they called to say & then abruptly hang up on you, no company I've ever delt with did that! and he said they must have got my name( to enter it in the sweepstakes) because I must have a visa or MasterCard, if he's with the company wouldn't he know how they got it? And he never said how much money you could win in the sweepstakes, he only said, it goes up every year, usually they say "you could win...........plus there were no people in the back ground making calls themselves, how odd is that for a company? If you can truly dispute all of the obvious, then you are simply in denial~did you actually order & receive magazines from them?
He's still at it, was nice enough on the phone so I let him go on. I just refused to give him my CC info, he seemed slightly upset but was still polite. I figure if i get some free magazines and a watch to give my daughter it was worth the 5 minute call.
# is on my reject list now though in case he calls back.
i also just received a call and wouldnt give any info. he gave me a referal number and i proceeded to call this number. at first no one at this number knew the company or name i was talking about. i then asked how my number was received and no one had any idea. i asked to be took off the call list and they informed there was not a call list. after i asked enough information they hurried me off the phone and told me to have a good day. i do not trust any of this and dont believe any of you should. dont give an address or any financial information.
I have my number on the do not call list and they are still calling it so I guess I should report them
I have added this number to my reject list. Caller receives this message "Your call is being rejected for security reasons. Please don't bother calling again."
If i wanted an FN magazine, i would have replied to their FN junk mail.
This Mike told me I'd won a diamond watch, i told him no thanks, got a snarky reply. Please don't waste my time with rudeness.
They are a legitimate magazine sales company . It's a sweepstakes and a magazine promotion. They are also affiliated with Subscriber Services----www.subscriberservices.biz
They are a legitimate company. They sell magazines.
got a call from some guy named mike Malone in Atlanta. he tried to get me to purchase espn mag for $1.88 a month. he knew my address and I'm not sure how. is it legit? I also apparently won a diamond watch as a per-drawing prize as the representative of my state
The Mike Malone guy called me this morning at 10 something in the morning and than again an hour later. No voicemail was left from him, which is weird since most professional places leave a voicemail. When I picked up the second time he went on about being associated with PCH, but was with a company associated with it called American Publishing or something like that. He said I won a diamond watch with a free subscription to a magazing of my choosing. Than he went on. I just want to know where he got my info from. He said my name, my state, and than said he knew I was associated with Visa or Mastercard. He was nice, and tried giving me another phone # to verify he's from a legit place. I was just annoyed and not interested at all. I just said thank you and that I would call back after I thought about it. I thought about it, and scam or not I don't need magazines or a diamond watch. If he calls again I'm just going to ignore it. A more professional thing for companies like that, if they are legit, would be to email me. If they have my email than I know it's legit, because I don't just give my email out to just anyone. Our phone companies need to do a better job about not giving out our numbers. If that's the case. I am a part of PCH, but that is in Colorado not Georgia. So it seemed a bit fishy to me. Just be nice and I'm sure the guy will leave you alone. If you're a jerk to him, remember if he knows your address and personal info he could be a jerk back to you and use it against you.
thats funny,he just told me an hour ago he works for pch and he just loves 2 see the smiles on ppls faces when he shows up at there doorstep,its a scam bud!!
thats funny,he told me an hour ago he works for pch and he just loves seeing smiles on ppls faces when he shows up at the door,its a scam!!
We have been getting calls too after we ordered a forever lazy. We believe that the forever lazy people sold our information. Be careful people!
suposidly for this guy Mike Malone u do need to subscribe to be enter, its sad that these people try and scam others
They do not say that. What they say is they represent the publishers. It's a real company that sells about 300-400 different magazines.
it's a magazine sales co--been around for years---LEGIT
They 're for real. Company that sells magazines and sponsors a sweesptakes every year
People---if you live in America, someone has your name, address and phone number on their marketing list. Why is that so hard to understand??
I've ordered magazines from them. They are a legitimate company. They sponsor a sweestakes but you dont have to buy anything to be in it.
They have a separate promotion where if you buy a weekly magazine----they give you a watch and two monthly magazines for free--and they also let you change your magazines for free.
There are a real magazine sales company. They have a sweepstakes every year will actual prizes. You don't have to buy a magazine to be in the sweepstakes.
Got the call and no message, didnt answer since i didnt recognize the number so have no idea what they wanted..not the first time it's showed up on my caller id
I didn't answer and he left no message. When I called him back he didn't answer.
I got a call yesterday night around 9 pm and again today morning at 12:30 pm..no one talks..when I called back it goes to voice!!
Anyone has idea on what exactly is this kind of call meant to be?
called twice, no message, don't recognize number
this number has called my cell twice within a thirty minute period I did call number back and a man answered as publishers I dont know who this is and i didnt give my number out
Got a call from this number but no message either which means its probably someone that I would not want to talk to.
