I was charged, on my visa card, 4 times on 1/23/09. Charges were $24.00, $18.00, $29.00, $22.00. I tried calling the company at the number I found from the complaints board. I was taken through an automated process that asked me if I wanted to cancel (something I didn't request) I said yes, then it stated that 15 months of magazine would be sent to me and if I didn't cancel at that time charges would be made to my account. At that point I got on the phone with my bank and had to cancel my credit card and file fraud on the account.
I am baffled that there are so many complaints regarding this company yet they continue to operate as a business. My next step will be to file fraud charges with my local police department. Now whether this will be acted on or not we will soon see. Also, I plan to speak with an attorney to see if there is anything else I can do. These people need to be held responsible for stealing credit cards numbers and charging accounts for their magazines.
