United Family Circulation / Fraud and cheating
I happened to be visiting a friend in my neighborhood last week when two young guys claimed to be students from West Texas A & M University knocked on her door. They said that they had been chosen to travel abroad to Paris to study for a month but needed a little help getting there so they were selling magazine subscriptions as a fundraiser to help with their travel. Well, I am new to owning a home so I am new to the door to door marketing & I am always willing to help for a good cause. It didn't take me long to pick 2 magazines & write 2 separate checks. Needless to say my husband told me it was a scam & the more I started to think about it I realized they told me that their mother would be calling me to verify if I wanted to even buy magazines because she wanted to make sure her sons weren't being pushy. Well I have yet to receive a call & I started to think that they never told me when my magazines would come in so I thought I would look the company up online & it appears I am not the only one doing a little research on this company! I have put in a stop payment on these checks & learned a valuable lesson in return!
