I think they are the same ones, but they call themselves 'Public services'. The basic conversation is 99% the same. When I tiold them I don't read magazines, they hang up.

This same thing happened to me and i felt dumb for falling for it ! When i did more research on it i found all the scam complaints so i called my bank and had a freeze placed on my account and a new card before they could take anything off... i tried calling the number back and all it does is play cheesy elevator music.... when the guy had asked for my card number i told him that i didnt have one and he said yes you do your a preferred customer of visa so either you don't have your card or you don't have funds on it.... i feel dumb for falling for but i hope talking to my bank has fixed this and i wont have any trouble....

I've been getting a call from a 0000000 number for the past week. Finally answered it today and sure enough it was this scam. Word for word the exact same speech about being entered to win $1million except they said they were from Readers Services.  Ha! I wish. I have never once entered myself and I have never been a subscriber to any magazines. As soon as I said I was declining to pay for the "additional" magazines they hung up. Hoping they don't call me again or I might just lose it on them.

I would suggest to anyone who had received this call to watch your credit card statement and your credit reports. Just to be on the safe side.

Received call from "Unkown" 000-000-0000 with the same spiel as C-nizzle wrote. This guy didn't have our corect address, I politely refused to give him a correct one. I also politely declined any magazines, and "free diamond watch". Considering we haven't had any credit cards for sevearal years, I figured out this was just a magazine marketer simular to Publisher's Clearing House, but worst. I would advice not giving out any info to this company, or you might end up paying a premium for those magazines, if they show up at all. Plus most likely won't have any recourse to stop payments, find why you're not geting magazines you pay for, and a host of other things. Save yourself the headache, be polite, and firm, and refuse. Besides many magazines offer really great deals directly.

I gave them a separate number to call me back on, the supervisor, and they were hesitant to take my number. My sister was at my moms and I guess they called again, but didn't contact me on the number I had given.

I almost wonder if I will actually receive a watch hahahahahaha! They asked me if I would like a men's or women's watch...  I was gonna sell it anyway.

I just recieved a call from these people as well.  They claimed to be from some publisher sweepstakes and I was in the running for a million dollars.  I did NOT give them my credit card number.  However, they did have my address.  Is there anything I should do?

These people are beyond irritating! I got my first call from a 800 number of some kind claiming they were from the Publisher's Sweepstakes. She went on and on about being a preferred customer and asked what Credit Card I use and I said I have no credit card, only a debit, and then she asked my birthday and I gave that to her. Then when she said I will be getting a free Quartz watch I hung up. They called again another time and I forgot what the number was and I told them straight away I do not want them calling me and to take me off their list. NOW they call me as 'UNKNOWN' and when I pick it up to tell them where to go, they hang up. Today someone answered and I told them the same thing and they said 'Are you sure it was us - then what am I calling you for then?' Scam, scam, scam!!! So annoying!!!!

I got the exact same script.  I got as far as confirming my address, phone number and card type.  Then when I told them I didn't want to pay for anything, they said thank you and hung up on me.  I called my credit card company immediately to notify them and they said I had no recent activity and that my fraud protection would block any potential charges.  I think they were just phishing for my credit card number (which they never got).  The number on the caller ID was a "1" and they called twice in 1 day.  I foolishly picked up the second time.

I also have the same question. Luckily, I did not give out any number (or expiration date) so I do not believe they can charge me.

They did this too me too! I was soo stupid to fall into it! I received a cancel form in the mail but my mom threw it out. They haven't sent me the diamond watch yet or the magazines. I want to cancel this, I can't make these month by month payments that's rediculous! I don't know how to cancel it. I need another form to cancel it! I'm looking for the magazines and maybe there is a number I can call to cancel. They are annoying and will call you a lot!

I am getting the same exact line and whats even funnier is they keep changing the reason they are calling and go from a one accent to another I guess hoping to trip people up. But I noticed almost everyone making these comment mentions school. I am in college as well. I think they get our information when we are filing for grant money and loans. They mix their information in with legitimate organizations and it is hard to distinguish it is a scam untill they ask for your credit card after u enter ur phone number. even if you exit the sight they have your number already. If anyone is llooking for help funding your education start with your states education department websites or the department of educations site. Double check links before you click on them to make sure it does not say advertisement is small print. These are things I have learned through personal Experiance. Also any legitimate school would be able to ppoint you toward real funding oppourtunities. Good Luck all. and remember never Give your credit card number for FAFSA information or grant information. The government does not charge

I didn't even answer it, when I called back to see who it was it was IMC, Inc. said to hold for a rep, then it disconnects you, I suppose because its on their dime! I advise EVERYONE to call it and call it costing THEM money!

I called this number back twice.  The first time it disconnected after hearing "Thank you for calling IMC, Inc."  The second time, it transferred to a live person.  I asked what the company was and she said it's a magazine subscription company.  I asked if she would remove my number from her list and she said she couldn't because I was not calling from the phone number that they called.  I asked why I couldn't give her the number to remove and she said she couldn't do it unless I called from my cell phone.  I will wait for them to call me back and let them have a piece of my mind.

They have called me at least 12 times a day. I have repeatedly told them to remove my number from their call list and they don't. I have even tried threatening them with a call to the police for harassment - guess what...doesn't work.
If you ever see this number appear on your caller ID...dont answer!

I've begun receiving 2 or 3 calls a day from this number.  Yesterday I finally answered, because they woke me up and I had the phone right by me, and the woman said she was calling with good news from Clearwater, FL.  I said I wasn't interested in anything, and she said that I seemed to not be in a good mood, so they would try again later.  *sigh*  If I hadn't been so sleepy I would have told her I wouldn't ever be interested and to take me off the list, but I'm sure I'll get my chance to do so.

I got a call today from the same people saying I won a watch and some free magazine subscriptions, just need to pay for one of the magazines. THey guy who called seems really interested in getting my credit card number. It was very well rehearsed and I've read about the same sort of calls to other people, I think this might be a credit card scam.

They called me twice yesterday and then again this afternoon. Since I had missed 3 of their calls I decided to call them back. First it was an automated machine saying something like, "Welcome to IMC. All of our agents are currently busy..." and then a woman answered. She told me that because I'm a VISA card holder, I was randomly selected for a chance to win one million dollars. I also won a watch and 3 free magazine subscriptions (except I just needed to pay for one). I declined the offer for the magazines and then she thanked me and we hung up.

Total b.s.

They called this morning at around 1030, and I decided to google them since I've been getting calls from them almost every freaking day! Found this site and finally decided to give them a call back and asked to be taken off the list. A machine came up and very quickly a man came on the phone and I immediately asked what company it was and all he could tell me was "this is IMC". I asked, "What is IMC exactly, because I've been getting calls from you almost every day and early in the morning, and I just wanted to know who it is calling me and for what." Mind you.. I was being VERY nice to this man, just trying to get info. He then goes on and tells me it's a magazine subscription company that I had previously signed up for and that I was selected randomly for a chance to win. I cut him off, apologized, and I told him that I never had subscribed to any magazine ever and never will. He asked if I was interested in hearing more about it and I told him I wasn't and before I could finish telling him to take me off their list.. this dumb fu** hung up on me.

I called back and surprisingly got him again and I proceeded to yell at him about being rude and that I wanted to be taken off the list. He goes and say "Whatever" and hangs up on me. Called back again and I got another rep instead, told her to take me off the list, and cussed her out and threatened if she dont.. (poor girl). She apologized and told me she would add me to their DNC list, and if I continue to get a call from them to ask for a supervisor.

My number better be taken off that list, because I am tired of getting calls from them at freaking 8 in the morning. Who the hell would answer their phone at 8am anyways?!
