American Reading Club / Awful place

1 United States Review updated:

American Reading Club claim that back in 2000 I ordered a 5 year subscription which I did not order totally in the amount of $1, 026. Now they have forwarded the account to a collection agency. According to the collection agency the transaction was done over the phone and that I have paid $54.00 for the 1st subscription. I don't recall ever ordering magazine over the phone and I know better to order anything over the phone. Ask the collection agency to show me proof that I ordered the magazine by providing me the credit card number or checking account used. The collection agency would not give me the information nor allow me to contact American Reading Club to get the proof. Because American Reading Club has nothing to do with the account any more. Now the collection agency is will to settle the matter from $1, 026 to $92.68. If I pay the $92.68 they will stop contacting me.

I have contacted ABC 7 at your side in my area to help with this matter. If anyone else out there experiencing the same problem with American Reading Club. You contact your local news media to report them. Also if anyone has other suggestions of reporting them to a government agency.

    I think that Complaint can be a good thing because it help other who might be going through the same thing with a company.
