Viking Magazine

I have read all the complaints about this business on here and now, I am pretty scared! I got a call from Viking Magazine about 2 days ago and I was genuinely interested (they also promised a free 500$ shopping spree if I subscribed), I went through 3 phone calls to subscribe and by the end it sounded like just waaaay to much money for magazines (5 magazines subscriptions for 2yrs for 59$ a month for 6 months or something like that)! On the last call they said it was recorded, and they do have me recorded saying I want the subscription but also that I thought I wouldn't have enough money to pay and i asked if I could cancel at anytime and the lady said yes, then she said that she will suspend my first payment for a month. I then realized today that even though I have a month there is no Way i will be ale to pay it. I then called to cancel and this very grumpy and rude lady said someone would contact me in about two weeks about canceling, That seems too late!!! They haven't charged me anything and I haven't received anything from them but I am terrified that they will start charging my account I do not want to cancel my card but idk what else to expect from this place, and please I know I shouldn't have given them my info in the first place trust me, I have learned my lesson there, but without lecturing me What should I do??? Please Help!!!

Viking Magazine is the servicer for Great American Reader LLC a/k/a Direct Clearing. All are involved in this scam.
I blame the magazines--they should only take subscriptions directly from the consumer, not a third party.

File a complaint with BBB in MN, and the AG in MN and FL.

This scam needs to be shut down.

Also file a complaint with the FTC, don't give up.

I sent a cancelation paper before the 14 days and they said they didn't receive anything. And when I asked to speak with a manager she said no they have better things to do than to talk to me. She (Jackie Johnson) was rude and a bully. The Viking magazine sales men and women are fakes.

I got a call from one of your reps today saying that I was entered into a million dollar sweepstakes and that if i purchase your promotional offer I would receive $250 worth of online gift cards. My girlfriend loves magazines and the rep said that they are only $15.95/month for six magazines of my choice. However, after reading up on it, I don't know that I will go through with it unless I get something in writing stating everything she told me and that yes it is true. ALL of it. Do you have anyway of making that happen? Or should I just stick with purchasing my magazines separately? And am I really in a sweepstakes? Will I really receive the gift cards? Or were the things she said lies to get me interested? Someone just be honest with me please. Otherwise I will contact the BBB and have my name put on your DNC list.

This very same incident happened to me not to long ago and after reading this site I am wondering if I had gotten scammed too. I also entered some kind of sweepstakes so they said and I was told also along with the others that left there comments that they would receive 5 issues of different magazines and over $250 worth of gift cards to different places. I am thinking if I should just cancel my subscription because then I can get a full 2 payments back in a refund. I am here to let anyone else that decides to order stuff through Viking magazine not to go through with the service because it will mess you up big time and really mess you income up also. So to you all I hope the best and next time you want to order stuff from another site beware.
