Atlantic Circulation Inc. / Scam

1 US Review updated:
Contact information:

I was approached outside my local Target store by a young ma. He stated that he was involved in a contest to win tuition and travel money. He said that I could help him by purchasing magazines. The best way to help him, he said, was by donating a subscription of the Disney magazine to a women's shelter. This would earn him extra bonus points. I wrote out a check for $48.00 which he took. I got a receipt numbered. Upon returning home, I realized that this did not seem like a legitimate business, so I followed the procedures on the back of my receipt to cancel the order. I mailed it certified mail, and it has been received by Atlantic Circulation Inc. Their contract states that if I cancel, any payments made will be returned within 10 business days following the receipt by them of my cancellation notice. I was shocked today to see that there are so many other complaints lodged against this company. I hope that this can help someone else. If you are approached by someone representing this company, keep your money. It is a scam.

    A young person came to my residence selling magazine subscriptions. I bought one called Unique Homes that was touted as inside tours of unique estates. What I received was ONE real estate magazine featuring high end homes that I could have received free. This is an out and out scam.

    Well, like several others out there, I had a clean record of not having been scammed until two young men showed up at my door selling magazines for their trip to Europe. Immediately after they left with $40 for a 3-year subscription to Outside Magazine, I got online, saw the list of complaints about Atlantic Subscription Inc. being a complete scam, and knew I'd been had.

    At first, I was just going to let it go, say goodbye to the $40, and let it be a lesson of "NEVER AGAIN"--but after I heard several stories about how these kids (young adults in age but kids in maturity and how they've been dealt a bad hand in life), it became all about trying to stop people from taking advantage of kids like these.

    So, I've submitted a cancellation and made a copy and sent it to the Attorney General. I also have other copies and will continue to pursue this and make life difficult for the company until they step in and put a stop to this.
