Active Periodical / Terrible experience
I just received another call from Active Periodical, from [protected] and [protected]. It was "My personal billing agent" in regards to a supposed pair of accounts I have with them. I only ever agreed to sign up for one account, and the advertiser claimed it was a program by Mastercard to assist people with bad or no credit in building their credit. I found out about a month and a half ago that Active Periodical, misusing information I gave them about a magazine change and address change, signed me up for an additional account.
I have since stopped all payments to this company and reported them to the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center (http://www.ic3.gov/complaint/default.aspx)
I encourage everyone who has had similar problems with the company to write in, and register your complaints. I will be writing the Attorney General as soon as I am done with this posting, and I encourage you all to, as well. I will continue to work on this problem until I have been freed of the criminal acts of this company.
For anyone who thinks that I am taking this too far, I only make around 16, 000 a year after taxes. My bill for magazines that I was not receiving went from 52 dollars to 104 dollars without any notification, and under a false premise. I am willing to take this all the way to the steps of the Supreme Court if need be, and I ask anyone else who has suffered rude, incessant calls, double billing, financial hardship, and credit card debt due to this company's practices to be ready to do the same thing.
