I want to turn in 2 Magazine agencies that frauded me by using my business name to subscribe me to over 7 different magazine subscriptions and 2 of the subscriptions were inappropriate. I am a licensed childcare so the companies subscribed me under the name (chidcare) and like I said before sent me some inappropriate magazines as well.

Here is the contact information on 1 of the companies.
Marlice Barnes
Manager of National Publishers Exchange
727.524.3600 x2295
727.373.0873 (fax)

Marlice was very rude to me when I called them long distance to let them know of the Fraud.
She raised her voice and told me it was this companies problem:

United Family Circulation, 303 West Shadburn Ave, Suite #10, Buford, GA, 30518. You may contact them by phone # 770.831.7722

When I received 4 different magazines in 2 days I called each magazine to ask who subscribed me to your magazines? all 4 magazines told me National Publishers Exchange, and they gave me the information to contact them and that is how I know what company frauded me.

National Publishers Exchange
says it is not them and put all the blame on
United Family Circulation.

So I called United Family Circulation and talked to tori she told me that someone must have came to my door and then I ordered, I told her, no! that did not happen and I am reporting fraud!!

I can not believe how horrible I have been treated. I am a victim and I am very upset that a business can do this to me.

I know that they got my childcare Business online and signed me up. They even signed me up for a mens magazine and they signed me up as childcare.

can you believe that?
very inappropriate.

I emailed
National Publishers Exchange

and have their response which was strange because
she said I said certain magazines that they signed me up with and that was false and irrelevant.?

Here is my email and there's

    I would just like to complain about this company because i've recently read that this was a scam and that they called me back in December telling me i won things without even entering anything and of course i was hooked into the magazine subscriptions and that i have to pay every month a certain amount and i tried to cancel my account but they wouldn't let me and they offered to lower the price that i had to pay for the subscriptions and now i just want it to end because my bank account is almost out of money. I'm thinking of canceling my card to stop the payments but i'm worried that i might be imprison for debts at a scamming magazine company.

    I ordered 2 magazines from this company and didnt' receive anything. The website is no longer functional and no one is answering the phone. I contacted PayPal to get help but they can't because it's past 45 days. Well... if the subscription is supposed to take up to 12 weeks, of course it's past 45 days! I am extremely frustrated because I have just been ripped off and I work TOO HARD for my money.

    I was recently approached by a young man selling magazine subscriptions so he "could but books for college". After writing him a check, I felt as though I had been taken advantage off and tried to find Yoli and Associates on the internet. The only thing that came up was an empty building in Michigan IN and a bunch of complaints.
