My mentally challenged daughter is a victim of COUNTRYWIDE PERIODICALS LLC. According to our Letters of Guardianship, a judge has ruled and protected her from entering into a contract with anyone. She has a cell phone and was contacted by COUNTRYWIDE PERIODICALS' telemarketing. The representative sold her a "Savings Club" membership for $9.95 a month and subscriptions to six magazines that she does not read for $49.81 a month. Any conversation with her would cause a person to realize that she is not a capable of entering into an intelligent business agreement. She was taken advantage of and the company has stolen $231.04 of her SSI benefits from her bank account. The contract was for 20 months and they were on track to take a total of $1, 195.20 from a girl that reads at a 2nd grade level. I have complained and sent them court documents. They agreed to end the contract but refuse to refund the money they have taken. She has never seen the magazines - she did not know what she had agreed to buy. Her father threw the magazines in the trash when they came in the mail believing they were junk mail and clutter, unaware that COUNTRYWIDE PERIODICALS were withdrawing funds from her limited monthly income. We have no idea what she was supposed to do with the Savings Club. She is not allowed to save her federal funds. I will attempt to go to the magazines themselves next and complain about the practices of this company that poorly represents them through theft from a child that does not understand.
