This company contacted me in December 2011. Short Version: They called Said I ordered magazines wanted to confirm cc information. I said I did not order any and hung up. Now the phone calls became relentless. For personal reasons I wont say why, but I got scared, flustered and easily confused. gave info to prove I was not who they were looking for. Big Mistake, I know so don't bother responding to that. I realized this was the company that had been calling my number these past weeks and not leaving a message on the recorder. Now realizing my mistake I called them back, like 5 min after hanging up, told them who I was, what happened and I wanted stop or cancel anything that was done on my cc. They refused, said I could not cancel, would not tell me their name, started yelling and threatening me, then hung up
I cancelled CC. One month later I get a bill for 39.90 or the full amount of $1157. I never gave an order for magazines and have not received any magazines. I filed a complaint with Texas Attorney General, My state attorney general, BBB, FTC, and US Post office. The company president is Vincent S Haydock, out of Florida. We have the right to cancel any subscriptions and they know that. They wont let you until the time limit runs out. I believe I can prove intent to cancel. But what I believe and what the law says can be two different things. Seems like the law protects these ###. Has anyone else stood up to these bums. Made them stop. Has anyone had debt collectors call or had their credit ruined because of this. Please let us know why they got away with an obvious scam. File complaints with the above entities, also with the National do not call list if you are on it. One more thing, when they call and I do reverse phone checks, the phone numbers go to different cities in different states. No telling where they are really calling from. Small claims is next, if it applies. Still looking into it. Dont give in!
