Bon Appetit Magazine / False Magazine Subscription
Two teenage girls were selling magazine subscriptions to win a trip to Hawaii for their baseball team. They said they lived in the neighborhood and were both home schooled. I'd never seen them or met them before but don't know many of the teens in this sub-division. They were quite charming and chatty and stayed a t least 45min. It seemed like the neighborly thing to do to help them win their goal-they seemed to be putting a lot of effort into it I purchased a 3 year subscription to Bon Appetit Magazine for $57.00-part was supposed to go toward paying for their trip-hence the higher price.
Well, I never got one magazine until 2 months ago, Then, I got a publication called Interview which I think is a freebie give away. I've tried to correct the error but cannot get a hold of anyone at Prestige Sales. The screen they post says the number of my receipt is not valid and could be stolen. Big suprise- no one from the company has returned my calls or emailed me. The girl who sold me the magazine wrote her name on the receipt. I check online and there is no such person with that last name in my area within 40 miles. She's obviously not a neighbor. I no longer buy anything being sold door to door unless I know the person.
It's sad to see teens turned into such accomplished con artists!
