I have called Great American Readers several times to ask them to cancel sending the magazine's. The young lady said I could not cancel. She had told me if I wasn't happy I could cancel at any time. The next day I called asking them to please cancel That I was on disabilty I could not afford the payments. I was told they would not stop that I would be getting more magazines. I have received many magazines. I have never heard the name of some magazines I have received. Two payments were taken from my credit card. I had to get a new credit card because another person had charged on my card. After receiving my new card they called and was very rude to me. Politely I ask the lady to stop calling. She replied to me I will call any time I want. I told the lady my name was on the do not call list. After I told the lady it was worse. Started calling on my home and cell phone. We were on vacation in September and had went out to eat. When we returned the front desk clerk said I had a phone call. He gave me the number and it was Great American Readers. I do not know how they knew we were on vacation. This was a shock to me. I ask how did you know we were on vacation and where to call to. The lady told me they had ways to find out and it wasn't any of my business. This has been going on for months. I received a letter 11/18/2010 stating balance to pay in full $678.30, past due $274.50. giving me 10 days in our office that I wa suthorized to proceed with my maximum effort to collect this just dept. The letter was from Great American Readers. P. O. box 20051, Bloomington, Mn. 55420. Phone number [protected]. I do not owe.tried to cancel. I have had phone calls from different people. I kindly told them I have called and mailed letter asking to please stop calling .

    i agree with you this company "Great American reader's " should be stoped for scamming people that cant even afford that payment in this economy. I got scammed by this company that have workers that have an education of a 6th grader and i am really mad but i got a solution maybe they have sent you a letter that is saying " That they are going to file a fraud claim against you " if you ever got your money back from that card that you canceled it turns out they cant do anything just encourage them to take you to court most likely they wont the reasons why well we have all the things needed to take them down one thing is that they are impersonating a collector because that agency doesn't even exist at all!!! that is very illegal that reason that i know how come since both of them are different company's how do they know very well that name of the workers and this happened to me once they called he told me he was from the collecting agency and then tells me that his :co-worker: talked to me and i said how do you know her name and he just hanged up and then the magazines are only promotional magazines which in other terms means "free magazines " which come from the publisher so how the freaking way should we pay 49.90 for free magazines man i got so many proofs that can take that company down and turns out the address is fake they are not from bloomington they are Minneapolis
