Patriotic Readers Club / Scam

Aug 26, 2011

This company called me, and used the name of a readers service that I am making payments to.

They knew a lot of the magazines that I am getting, my address, the bank I bank at., my address, They had mentioned about making a $39 payment I said No, I make monthly payments by check, not by withdrawing from my account. Well I sent my payment recently to United Reader Service and some how Patriotic copied my check and sent it to my bank. For withdrawal, I have a copy of it from my bank.

Tell them that you will call back...

Patriotic Readers Club - Massachusetts / Misrepresntaion


A sales person contacted my son in college claiming they were master card, and had an offer for him of free magazines. All he had to do was confirm his credit card for them. Once they had his card he started getting monthly bills for $49.95 for a grand total of $1248.75 to be charged to his credit card, for magazines he does not want and did not request. We would like to request that master card investigate this fraud, and will contact a lawyer
