MTS Circulation LLCMagazine Subscriptions

These Kids came to my door one day and said they were tryin to raise money for school and said they got points for every magazine subscription they sold. They wanted cash but I gave them a check because they assured me that someone from the company would contact me before cashing the checks to prove it was'nt a scam and also stated the checks would not be cashed for at least thirty days. I waited for someone to contact me and they never did, and furthermore they cashed the checks before the thirty days and have now overdrawn my account and I have now incurred additional bank fees. I would like to know if I have any recourse from this company for a full refund plus fees. They also told me not to worry about anything because I could cancel my subscription when I was contacted and they would still get their points. I am a very community minded person but I now have to think twice about buying anything from true college kids.

    A young man came to our door talking very fast. He said he was selling books to give to under privileged kids. Generally I spot a scam right away, but he was smooth. He had a million details like he got points for every sell and he would have won a trip to Italy. He asked us our profession and when we said we were going back to school he said he got extra point for students. He then asked for our phone number so his boss could call us. He said the books were $1.40 a piece. So I pulled out $5.00. He then said it was a set of books and the total, with shipping, was $55.00. I was in a hurry to get out the door so I thought it was for a good cause and pulled out my check book. A red flag came up when he said my neighbor bought two sets one for a boy and one for a girl. I wasn't going to do that. He then said don't tell my neighbor about this since they bought two sets and I only bought one. That nagged the back of my mind as I was running my errands. I got back late so didn't research it until today. I realized it was a scam and put a stop payment on my check, which cost $30.00. I also signed the back of my receipt and I'm going to mail it to them to cancel the order. I think that is a scam as well as I went to their website with my receipt number and they said there was no such receipt. So I'm out $30.00 dollars.

    Just about the same thing happened to me.

    Two girls came to my door claiming to be students who were working to win prizes. They wanted me to buy magazines. They also kept asking if they could come in which I thought was weird. I'm a 200+lb muscular guy with a bear and shaggy hair. What young girl, who doesn't know me, in her right mind would want to come into my place? Despite the red flag, they were so bubbly and funny that I bought 2 magazines for about $140 total. That was Nov 19th, 2011. Today is April 16th 2012. The receipts read that delivery will happen in 120 days. It also reads no refunds after 3 business days.

    I remembered the magazines yesterday and e-mailed the company. They responded that they had my apt # wrong and were "making the adjustments" and that I should allow another "4-6 weeks" for the adjustments to be reflected and for my magazines to come. Then he used the 3 business day rule to get out of sending me a refund. Bull sh*t. You can't just take someone's money and never send anything and use that excuse. The email was signed by a David Winters.

    I've never had a situation like that where my apt number was wrong. Besides, for something like a magazine, it would have been returned to sender because the name on the label didn't match the apt #. That's how the post office works. Sometimes mail get's through, but not 2 magazines for a couple months.

    There are hundreds if not thousands of complaints online about this company. This is a scam and must be avoided.

    Check out this link for their physical address in Glendale AZ. Click on the different articles of incorporation as there may be additional info there that helps you.

    2 girls came to my house and talked about winning trip. I was busy and I had sleeping baby so I wrote their checks to get rid of them. They cashed these checks but their website is not working. I think they scammed me!
