Connection 2000 Inc. / Magazine Sales door to door

I was approached at my front door by a charming young lady with a tale of how she was earning "points" by selling magazines. She was a single mother, was once on drugs, etc. etc., but now she was turning her life around by earning these "points". A very slick, convincing presentation. Hard not to feel sympathy for her, so I "purchased" three magazine subscriptions, totaling $113.00, including a "handling" fee. She said I would receive a confirmation phone call within a week and that I should give them the code number on the receipt she left me. That was 2 and a half weeks ago, still no phone call. My check was cashed almost immediately, which makes me very suspicious that I have been ripped off. I have seen some other complaints about this company and that also is making me suspicious. I wish I had seen them before I gave them my money. I would really like to cancel the whole deal and get my money back, because I am now certain her story was part of a scam, but I'm not confident I will ever see my money, or any of the magazines I ordered. Connection 2000: avoid at all costs. Don't be a fool like I was.

Actually, I Googled the address for this 'company' and it's somebody's house. This has got to be a crime.

I also paid (162.00) for some magazines for my kids. Same story. I was trying to help someone down on their luck. I have called and spoken to "Karla" at Connection 2000 at least 10 times. She has promised me a refund at least 4 or 5 times even going as far as to say that checks would be going out next week and then calling me back to reconfirm my address.?????? I sent a note to the NJ Attorney Generals office asking if they had heard of this group or had any info. I actually got more responsiveness from COnnection 2000 than I did from The Attorny Generals office.

I am sure that I will never get a refund but they should be put out of business.!!!

I don't know about the Mag Company you are refrencing, I do have experience with Magazine Sales. PCCS a company that works the West Coast, based out of Gig Harbor WA is a legitimate company, I sold mags for them for a short time and now live in that same area, No one I sold mags to, has told me they never got them, and I do currently know a few of these people I sold to.. As for USA - Universal Subscription Agency is however a scam crew. I was taught many, many tricks that aren't honest in the least. If anyone would like more information on how to avoid scammers please e-mail Shaykers@gmail.com with The date in the subject line.

It happened to me too. Lesson learned - check out the company before giving them money.
