Active Periodicals / Magazine Scam

1 MS, United States

I received a call from Active Periodicals today wanting me to buy magazines and in return, I would recieve a $1000.00 online shopping spree. Everytime I would ask a question regarding "opting out" if it turned out to be something other than what the representative explained over the phone, she would reply that she was new and would have to ask her supervisor about it. I also told her that I would not give her any personal information over the phone and asked to be billed and she once again told me that she would have to check with her supervisor first. I told her that would be a great idea and she asked me to hold on. When she returned, she stated that she would have to "get back with me on this" and hung up. I'm so glad I listened to my gut instinct!! What a SCAM!!! I was tempted, like many others but it's so true what they say; If it sounds too good to be true, IT IS!
