Southern Magazine Promotions Complaints & Reviews

Southern Magazine Promotions - Washington, Vancouver / FRAUD AND SCAMMED

I received a call in December 2008. I told the employee i wanted off the list and didnt want to purchase any products. Two weeks later I received another call. I decided to purchase 2 years of magazines(paying for 4 and receive 9) for 50.00 a month but I got it knocked down to 33 a month. I was told money would be taken out in March, I double checked and asked repeatedly about EVERYTHING. In Jan money was taken out 42.00(not the amount I agreed to), I figured it was an early payment. I tried to call the number I was given...it was invalid. So I was going to wait to possibly get mail that they...

Southern Magazine Promotions - Arkansas / Tried to cancel

Me

I too had received a call from from Southern Magazine Promotions. When I answered the phone, they said that I had been entered into a drawing by one of my credit card companies and that I won a free vacation and three magazines subscriptions. The only thing was that I had to pay for the fourth one. By the end of the phone call, I had signed up for six magazines and was paying $50 a month for 20 months. Of course I didn't do the math and was caught off guard. When I hung up the phone, I had realized that I just signed up for a $1000.00 magazine subscription. I called them back from my...

Southern Magazine Promotions / Scam

I get this call form a nice lady named Carrie, She says that I am a finalist in a free vacation contest. She also asked me if I wanted to buy magazines. I told her "No magazines, I just want the vacation. " She need my card number to verify that I had an active account. She assured me that there would be not transactions, no magazines, only a vacation entery. Now I'm sitting here with 10 magazines I don't read, $200 out of my account and I still owe $40. Maybe I was a little nieve. I feel I am in part to blame for not forseeing this, but had no right. Do not fall victom to these animals.

Southern Magazine Promotions - Montana, Great Falls / Fraud and Lies

Sg

My son was sucked into a scam by this company. They called him about a vacation. That's literally all he remembers about the phone call. He knows they asked a bunch of questions but wasn't sure what. then all the sudden all these magazines start showing up. We live in a small town so even though the mailing address was WRONG, the magazines still ended up in my box. I didn't know what was goin on. It was my son's name but I know he would never order "Time" or "Handyman. He was called by the company today and was told what I've read in several stories, about how he...

Southern Magazine Promotions / Do not be taken in...

No

I was dumb enough to subscribe to SMP for the same deal, knowing that i would be moving overseas soon. They assured me that i was able to receive the magazines to an overseas address, and that all i had to do was to call back and change the address on the phone. What happened after i got the package was that they told me that they do not ship overseas and hence i was stuck. However, i managed to push for a refund after complaining to them about it. They told me to send a letter in, which i did, 1 mth later, still nothing. Only after speaking to the supervisor did i mange to get a refund immediately credited back into my acct. WTF...... if they could do it now, why put me through so much trouble in the first place?

Southern Magazine Promotions / Fraud & cheating!

I was promised a vacation package to Florida with an outstanding deal on 3-7 magazines. The order was placed in June 2007 and I have not received anything from the company as of October 15, 2007. I attempted to cancel the order but the female representative stated that I cannot cancel the order and I am locked in a 5 year contract. The company has my credit card information, which all of my credit cards were canceled per my request. A formal complaint is being filed with the Minnesota Attorney General's Office and my complaint will be submitted to all major news agencies within Minnesota, including but not limited to, television news, newspaper news, radio broadcasting and the internet. A civil lawsuit is pending.
