Last night a very nice African American person came to our door to sell us magazines in order for him to collect the very few points he needed to become a paid employees of Urban Development Solutions Inc. He told us all about his upbringing in a dysfunctional household. He also explained to goal of Urban Development Solutions and told us that our subscription/donations to magazines were deductible. We subscribe to 2 magazines and gave him a check to pay for them. Today, we checked the website of Urban Development Solutions Inc. It is a for profit organization. We canceled the check because we were not told the truth about that sale. We feel bad about the person who came to our door but cannot give our money to people who do not tell us the truth.

    I subscribed to three magazines to help out a young, African American. It was four months before two of the three magazines arrived. I did get a refund for the third, since they were not able to honor the subscription.

    However, after a few issues, the other two subscriptions quit coming. So far, I have not had satisfaction from the company.

    We ordered one magazine from a gentleman with a similar pitch. That was back in Febuary 2008. We have not received the magazine; our check was cashed in July. Our attempts to reach the company have been unsuccessful - a perpetually full voicemail box. Any suggestions would be welcomed.

    I give my empathy for the lies you were told and the deceit given. But I would like to say that the company itself is a good, honest company and I do hope that this was not a deal breaker for you, although that was a terrible first impression of the company. :(

    BTW, this business is NOT a scam.
