Global Readers / Unsolicited phone calls
I just got bitten by Global Readers Service. They called me in Nov 00 and said they were offering me a great renewal on my Soap Opera Digest subscription. The last time I renewed through Elite Periodicals, and it worked great (even got a couple of free magazines for a year). I gave Global Readers Service my Discover card number and they charged my account for $132 for a 2-year renewal from Sep 01 to Sep 03. This is 16 Jan 01 and my mailing label still reads Sep 01. I called Global Readers Service, and they said the label should reflect the new expiration date soon. I contacted Soap Opera Digest, and they have no renewal notice. What is my recourse? This is telephone fraud.
