Yea Same thing just happened to me an hour ago, this is really stupid, just trying to be nice n i get into a huge mess, im 19 and dont know what to do, help me out plz?
I was called twice, missed the first one. I was told that I could pay $4.99/month for 60 months for 5 free magazines. I also got entered into a drawing for $100,000 that would be polled in like 8 months. I reluctantly agreed and was switched to a supervisor who proceeded to up the ante and make the offer 19 months of $69.00+ and get a bunch of useless stuff that I don't need. I tried several times to say that I don't want to pay for this, and that I would like to stop everything from here on out. I ended up calling my bank and had my card frozen. They attempted to pull out money, but had been denied because of lack of funds (which only saved me this time). I cannot believe that I fell for this. I only regret saying yes.
Hey, I did the same exact thing. I was wondering if the gift card worked out for you. They didn't find out another way to charge you, did they?
I don't need to dish dirt, but I can give some good info on how to avoid people like this.
Don't buy things from t.v. (ie: $19.99 products, etc.), they sell your info to people like this. Keep your banking info to yourself unless you're very familiar with the company that you're dealing with. Stick with well known companies unless you are prepared to lose whatever dollar amount they are quoting, as you will likely have no recourse. Also, don't enter those dumb contests (fill out a preprinted slip, drop in a business card, etc.) that most often ask you to fill out your name phone and address/email, because they end up in these guys hands and sold to similar companies and individuals. Also, never agree to buy ANYTHING over the phone and don't even ask the telemarketer to send something in writing. You have no proof of who you are talking to, they NEVER will say where they're actually calling from, and if you ask them to send something in writing, quite often they'll twist your words and act as if you agreed to the "offer" just by asking for something in writing.
Tell them to put you on their do not call list and hang up. If they call back under the same phone number or same company name, they're breaking the law and you must should really report all of the company names given to you and the phone numbers to the BBB and your Attorney General.
I just got called by them today and gave them my information! What should i do to stop them from scamming me! They told me that I won a $1000 visa gift card and then sold $68 worth of magazines and I didn't know until i put the number on google and then I checked my bank account and that 888-854-4706 number came up on my bank! Those ba**erds!
The recently took a payment out of my card. How can I stop this?
This is exactly what happened to me today.
First i gave them my account number but then changed my mind. they said ok and they will cancel everything but i still receive a $1 charge.
I called my bank account and they said that i need to wait to see if they are going to actually charge me
So what happened? Did they charge you after that $1?
i've gotten a call and i told them no and hung up on them and they still had my card number and everything. the number is 8888544706! watch out!
hi the same happened to me did yo try to lock your account after it happen or close it down and make a new one im 18 i know how you feel buddy. they ruined peoples lifes what was the person name the one who called me was named KELLY!

i cant believe these people like to steel money like this... i also got involved in this situation... i called to my bank and got a new card hope this is enough... although they took $35.00 from my account...
thats what i did.. i call my bank and told them that i have a problem with this company. my bank told me that they can block this company from taking my money but we dont know if they transfer my number to other company..anyways i change my card number..idk if thats enough...and the thing is that today i received a magazine from rollingstone.. im not going to pay anything i already told them to cancel my subscription and they said they cant which makes no sense...now i know that this is not a good company because im enrolled in another magazine and i can cancel my subscription at any time....
THESE PEOPLE ARE RIDICULOUS, I GOT SUCKERED IN TO BUYING THE MAGAZINES TOO BECAUSE IM TOO NICE OF A PERSON.THEY TRY TO GET YOU WITH THE "OH WELL SINCE YOUR BEING SO NICE AND NOT CURSING ME OUT ILL GIVE YOIU THE EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT!!" ...OF COURSE WHEN I CALL TO CANCEL THE NEXT DAY BECAUSE I REALIZED HOW STUPID IT WAS...THE GIRL ON THE PHONE SAYS I MADE AN "AGREEMENT" TO FULFILL MY PAYMENTS...AND ALL SHE CAN DO IS "GIVE ME AN EMPLOYEE DISCOUNT"!! NO THANKS! HEARD THAT ALREADY...THESE PEOPLE ARE RIDICULOUS, AFTER I GAVE HER A PEICE OF HER OWN CAKE SHE FINALLY AGREED TO CANCEL IT, BUT IM SURE SHE WON'T EVEN CANCEL IT KNOWING HOW THESE PEOPLE ARE.
SO RIDICULOUS!! NEVER SPEAKING TO SOMEONE EVER AGAIN!
u don't seem to have any problem finding the cash to pay for the porn channel tho...! don't beat down the magazine publishers. they need a slice of your pie too ya know.
this is crazy i dont want any magazines i live in low income i cant afford 69 a month that they keep trying to charge to my account
I received a call from this number awhile back. I believe it is a scam. And I fell for it. I was sick with a cold and I don't know what I was thinking. They were trying to sell me magazines. I tried to cancel the magazine subscription, but couldn't. They told me I agreed to pay for 16 months worth of magazines.
I also recieved the same call reguarding magazines, they told me it was going to be like 4 dollars a month and then after giveing them all my information the price then went up to 69. dollars. At that point i canceled the subscription and then called the customer service center and made sure it was canceled. On the first of the month they still debited my account.
Thay also got me too and i havent got any magazines. How do you get them to stop stealing money from you?
They called me too and offered me a low price on magazines then jacked it up afterwards. But I got them to lower the price of the magazines by spreading it out the payments for a long period of time. I have been happy with the service I have got. I just hate the fact when you move you have to call them up and it takes about 3 months to get your magazines to come to your house regularly again. And the only reason why I went with them is that I got offered a chance to win $10,000, but I didnt win.
The best thing I can recommend, is to call your bank and let them know you informed this company that you wanted to cancel the charge before it even got there, and they charged your card anyways, and your bank will put it in as an unauthorized transaction and block the company from billing you anymore.
The recorded voice will not hold up in court because they splice the messages together, and there is no law that says that you cannot cancel a service, and you have no financial obligation to continue a service, they cannot make a contract with you that says that you cannot cancel.
i got a call from them today. i agreed to pay for magazines for 19 months and now that im trying to cancel it an answering machine is coming up
I also fell for the trap, but since i don't read much and the cost if like 69$ for first 19 months and the magzines will continue for 60 months.
But the overall cost is much and can't afford to spend so much money which i don't use, i tried cancelling them today itself, but they told me to call tommorow. So let's see, other wise i will open up a dispute.
Also they called from a unknown (hidden number) , i got the number by calling credit card company since they put a transaction of 69$ on my account

I got called by them as well, after talking to them i told them that i could not afford the whole magazine deal. They said they had accidentally forwarded the information they had along with my card number into the machine and that they would try to cancel the transaction. The guy put me on hold and then left me there for about an hour. I immediately called my bank and reported the card as stolen. The stupid magazine company charged me a dollar but luckily was not able to charge me the 69$ i am now going to call them on monday and get my freakin dollar back. If they do not cooperate then i have their address and the guys name as well as his employee number (which is all probably fake, but its worth a shot) and ill simply press charges against them for theft. Than hopefully they wont bother people like you and me anymore.
Man I can't believe I fell for the scam either, it really makes you feel low anyways the best thing to do depending on your bank is to call and cancel the subscription. Wachovia will ask you to call the magazine company back and try to cancel it first but in order for them to dispute it it has to post to your account first.
