I had a girl come to my door very bubbly and believable after much hesitation I let her in and ended up giving her a check for a magazine to go to the marines and diabetes foundation also getting something. Didnt feel good about it and when I called to cancel coulnt get ahold of anyone at the number. Global marketing is also on the receipt. Am I dumb or is this legit?? HELP!! Never again!! ftft was who I made check out to.

American Cash Awards - Failure to deliver good or refund

Phone: 888-888-9025

Paid $65 for a magazine, tried cancelling the sale. Never received money back or the magazine. This is ridiculous that a company can get away with this many people being scammed and nothing being done about it. I would love to see 60 minutes or 20/20 get a hold to this story.

Contact Rebecca Wild at the State of Colorado Attorney Generals office, (303) 866-5187. This company is being investigated and I'm sure the more complaints they get the better.

Scam. Never let anyone in to your door. Unless they're doing it through their school.

What happens if you cancel the check right after writing it? I googled the company right after writing the check. When I saw this page...I cancelled the check immediatley!

American Cash Awards - no refund/no magazines
United States

I ordered a 2-yr subscription in the area of Chicago, IL, and still, in almost 6 months, have not received the magazine I ordered. I have called, written, and emailed the company to request a refund, with no response. Please avoid doing any business with this company, American Cash Awards in Kittredge, CO.

I was having the same problem. My son gave cash to a door to door salesman so I thought we would be out the money. However, after calling Family Subscription directly at (816)632-2919, the subscription began showing up at our house 2 weeks later.

I guess I'm not the only one I wrote them a check to for like 65 dollars but felt kind of weird after the kid left the house. So I immediately did everything to cancel the transaction so they wont take the money out, but they still did. That was 2008 didn't get my money and it bothers me a lot. I even got an Email from a KRISTEN HANSON. That i"ll be receiving it but pure BS. never heard from her again she said they were in the process of changing to a different banks and grate lakes were working hard. Hard to keep our money.

American Cash Awards - Refund never received, cancelled
American Cash Awards
United States

Reading the other complaints, my encounter happened in July of 2008. After the seller left, I too felt uneasy with the transaction. After repeated attempts to call and fax my cancellation request to the numbers provided I finally got through. I scanned and attached my cancellation request along with my order. Received an email from the person I spoke with that I would receive refund in 4-6 weeks. Repeatedly calling back, asking for a supervisor all with no results. I was told once they received the money (they are a clearing house only) they would send me the check. Of course I never received it. They are now operating as Monitoring Services Network with the same phone number and address in Denver. Better Business Bureau has logged their complaints as well.

The company American cash awards: called me and said I have a check for 2.5 million and all I had 2 do was pay 1percent of the shipping and handling which was $250, then UPS would bring the check to my house!!! I told him I thought it was a scam and I would not be sending the $. His reply was that my check was at The Bank of America and I could call (217) 960-4430 and speak. with Bruce Clark he could assure me tht it was not a scam. my next? was y do I have 2 speak 2him? and y come they just couldn't take the $ out of my check b4 I get it? after talking to bruce I still was not covenced so I called the actual bank of America and I was told tht it just don't sound right it had 2 b a scam and the only way she could check and see if I had a check at tht bank I had 2 have an account (which I don't) but Bruce said that he was checking and he did see that I had a check. for the amount of 2.5 million. just not believable for me so I want b sending anyone any $ I don't have $ to give away and if thay where not scamers then I guess I'm out of 2.5 million!!!

I got the same scam phone call this morning. I actually hung up and called the number back (it is in Jamaica, and the number is 875-394-2334.) When I called them back, they had no idea who I was, but insisted they were legitimate. I asked for their address, and they gave an address in Las Vegas that does not exist. I asked for the address again, saying their address doesn't check out and they would not give it to me. I asked for the phone number of American Cash Awards in Las Vegas and [Surprise, Surprise] they said it was down and that is why they are using the Jamaican number. I asked then where are you? and he said Las Vegas . . . I said, but your number says Jamaica . . . He slipped and said, "Oh no mon, I am in Las Vegas. Time to hang up! IT'S A SCAM!

My Nana has sent 30, ooo to this scam! If u answer the phone and its a guy with a Jamaican accent that says his name is John Davenport, its a scam. I tried to go to the phone company to get him blocked but they wont do it w/o the police getting involved. They told her they were bringing her 3 million dollars and that they would come eat lunch with her. DON'T BELIEVE ANYTHING THEY SAY! PROTECT YOUR ELDERLY! THEY WILL FALL FOR THIS SCAM!!!

Well, low and behold! I received the call also and it was from a Jackson Garvey who wanted me to do a wire transfer through Western Union for the amount of $145.00 to go to a Lue Ann Coleman
listed at 1518 Sunset Village Dr. in Ducan, TX 75137. He stated I had won $850, 000.000 dollars. I knew it was a scam when he told me to send money and he was verifying the state I lived in and could not say Oklahoma and stated that he was not famaliar with the state's name. He also did not want me to kid around with him about doing the wire transfer because he was sending someone to my home around 1:00 pm to hand me the check, but I had to pay for the fees that were involved first and call him when I had done it. He also warned me that he did not want me to waste the time of those coming to my home, he did not want me to fool around with him about sending the money. Can you believe the audacity of this person? I have turned this information over to the police maybe there is some type of bunco squad to handle this
problem. I do believe our only protection is people sharing this info with others.
