Got this notice, blah blah, you can win this amount for life, blah blah blah. Never hesrd of these people. I called the number listed to "register" my sweepstakes number, and asked how they got my information, just repeated We are National Magazine Exchange, we sent this notice as a courtesy. Then "Clark" persedes to ask personal information about"which of my credit cards" gave me the best service. Quickly hung up. The number on line has been disconnected. There is a website, I didn't bother to contact

Throw away this mailer from national magazine exchange, strike it rich sweepstakes. Its a scam.

In october 2010 a random number withan 866 area code called me. when i answered a friendly man asked if i wanted to be entered into a $1, 000, 000 drawing. I agreed and he said i can recieve a free diamond watch if i subscribe for a couple magazines. that didnt seem like such a bad deal so being the young college student that i am, i went through with it. Three months later i recieve a call from a collection company saying i owe $1336.62. The company charge me with late fees i didnt even know i was responsible for. I tryed to cancel the account and they said i had a finance agreement. I had absolutely no clue i was being charged for 30 payments of $39 when i just wanted a couple magazines. now im stuck having to pay almost $200 for five months. I dont even have $200 for grocerys this month noless $200 to pay for magazines i dont want or need. I cant get any help with this and i must pay $1000 i don t have. If you recieve a phone call from the International Magazine Company, just HANG UP. Dont let them have your debit/credit card number or they will rip you off. You wont wont beable cancel your account.
I recieved a notice in the mail to renew my subscription to CAT FANCY. I didn't want to renew this, so I...
I have paid on two renewals for magazines that my wife does subscribe to to equal $61.95. I contacted the magazine companies and they did not receive the amount that I paid National Magazine Services, I called the number on one of the notices. An automated message stated that it take 8 to 10 weeks to receive the magazine. Three of four numbers on the order slips were no longer in service.
my name is Laura Pettit. I have been charged for magazines on my Metrostyle credit card that I neither ordered nor do I know if I received them. I called the number on my credit card billing [protected] and got a message center that I tried to use both verbal and clicking numbers on the phone to ask that these charges be cancelled or to explain what these charges are for but got the runaround from the message center. I was never able to contact a live person. I was asked which magazine I was calling about - which I don't know and I was asked for the credit card number so tracking could be done but did not recognize my credit card number.
I would like these charges dismissed from my card.
This company keeps calling my phone. Its began amusing but now its just plain annoying, Everyday I get a call and when I answer I hear a bunch of people talking and no answers when I say "hello". Today when I answered and said "hello" I hear something about Darryl and his drug territory. This is rediculous. I wish it would stop. Isnt there someway to stop this?
Late November 2009, I received a phone call regarding a too good to be true Million Dollar Sweepstakes. The...
National Magazine Services had a collection Agency calling me about
oweing money for magazines that i never purchased or had a contract for. From what i think i know, After my initial contract with them expired some time back, they kept sending me magazines for which i never agreed to have after my magazine contract was up. They then had a collection agency contact me. The collection agency told me that i owed NMS for $599.00 and that i had to pay it. They said if i didn't pay it, that i would be taken to Small Claims Court by NMS and sued for the amount owed. For what the collection Agency told me, NMS claimed to have sent me a notice in the mail for payment due for magazines back in april, 2009, but they never did, at least to my knowledge. They work with a collection a agency that uses intimadation tactics. This is to pressure NMS's clients or former clients to pay for magazines. I have had this problem since I was tricked into a magazine contract with "Global Readers Magazine Company, " in Massena New York, back in 2004. "Global Readers Company, " lures people into their magazine scheme through a sweepstakes where they tell you that you won free magazines. They
then have you select several magazines of your choice with them over the telephone. They then tell you that there is a charge for one magazine of your selection. They record you over the telephone with a recorder. This locks you into a contract where you have to pay a minimal fee of about $400.00 for the magazine of your choice or 20 payments of $20.00 a month for 40 months. I set up a payment plan first with a credit card. A few months later they said that the credit card i used had rejected the payment(s) for the magazines. I then set up automatic payment withdrawal through my personal checking account with my bank. This was a very big mistake.They then overdrafted my bank account(checking account) for triple amounts of $20.00 a month. They use different names such as "Daytime Readers, " and a third name for which i don't remember for the overdrafts. When i finally noticed this many months later i had been overdrafted for about $900.00. I called them and told them about this. They claimed that the other two company names for which i was being charged $20.00 a month each were separate magazine companys. I told a representative on the telephone that the contract was only suppose to be $20.00 a month debited through my bank's checking account for a total of $400.00 after 40 months. She told me that there might be a glitch in ther computer system and that might be why that i had been overdrafted for the additional charges. I felt very suspicious of them after she told me this. She said that she would have someione look into this and call me and try to resolve this later. Then sometime later a sales representative from GRC called me and told me that i still owed them $398 dollars. I told him that i already overpaid them and that i talked to a employee there to get this matter resolved. He was very rude and told me that i owed them $398.00 and that i had to pay them. I told him to shove it and i hung up. I reported them to their City "Chamber of Commerce, " to get back the overpayment. They only gave me a partial settlement for less then half of the amount for which i overpaid. I overpaid by $900.00. They only refunded me $398.00. Later on a Magazine Company using a different name called me and gave me a special discounted price. Like an idiot i agreed. After the contract was almost up, a collection agency called me claiming that the payments were rejected off my credit card. They said no payments were ever received and that i owed $400.00. They said That i would be sued for the amount of $400.00 by the magazine Company + Court costs unless i paid the collection agency. I explained to the representative that to my knowledge, i had already paid what i was obligated too. A few days later a representative from the magazine company called me and told me that i owed them $800.00 and that the subscription was suppose to go on for about another three years, from what i recall. I said that i knew that the contract was only $400.00 from what i agreed to and that the magazine subcription contract was almost up. . I had to argue back and forth for some time. He finally agreed to let me just pay him $400.00 with the use of a credit card. I told him that i had already paid them through collector from a collection agency who contacted me about a year or so earlier about the amount owed at hand. I paid the collector with a check over the telephone. He claimed that it wasn't them and that i still owed them for the full amount. I then asked him to verify what magazines i owed him for. He said that he didn't have the information with him. I told him that he had to send me something in writing that showed the contract and the specifics on the magazine contract for the magazines, before i could consider the debt and decide whether or not to pay it. He then said that they had already sent out all of their notices. He said he sent many notices out to me in the mail in the past months. This sounded very fishy to me because i always look at my mail every day and i never received any notices from them to my knowledge. I explained that i never recieved them. He still said that they sent out all their notices and that he wanted me to pay him with a credit card over the telephone. I asked him where their company was located, and he said that it was in "Massena, " New York. I was then very suspicious of this and realized that this company was probably "Global Readers Company, " operating under a different company name. This is because that is where GRS is located. I told him that i thought that his company was probably the same magazine company that i had the initial problem with in the past. I told him what they did to me did to me in back then between 2004 and 2005. This was about tricking me into a contract, recording my phone conversation, and triple charging my bank accounts. He still insisted for me to pay him with a credit card over the phone. I refused and i
hung up. About 15 months had past and he never called me back. I then continued to receive magazines for which i never requested. This continued for about 15 months. Then a collection agency called me up and said that i owed $599.00 to a magazine company. They said that the magazine company would take me to court if i refused to pay the collection agency now at this point. I told them that i was being sent magazines from a magazine company for which i had been a member with in the past. I told them that they were sending me magazines that were never authorized by me or in in written contract. I didn't have the magazine's contact information to call them and tell them to stop sending the magazines to me. I told the collection agency that they or the magazine company had to verify the charges in writing before they could request payment. The lady at the collection agency was insistant that i had to pay this to them over the telephone. She kept on threatening that i would be taken to small claims court and sued by NMS if i didn't make the payment at this point. I refused and hung up. A few days later another lady from the same collection company called me and requested that i owed money for magazines to a magazine company. I told her about the same situation that i told to the previous collector at the collection agency. I told her that they or the magazine company had to verify these charges to me in writing.
I knew that these were my rights required by law because i looked this up on google.com under "consumer rights." I then asked her the name and the telephone number of the magazine company. She told me the name of the magazine company, but refused to give me their telephone number. She told me the name and it was "National Magazine Company." I am sick of this continual harassment by the collection agency and by NMS. I want someone to investigate this and put a stop to these scam artists and to the collection agency that is intertwined with them. I think they are both scam artists. Someone
please help me out. Put a stop to thes scam artists so that they don't keep ripping people off.

We received a fictitious mailing from "National Magazine Services, Inc." asking me to renew my magazine subscription for 2 years. We took at first glance as a legitimate renewal invoice as our subscription but in reality is a fake subscription as we can see now.
Here's the fraudulent company information.
National Magazine Services, Inc.
PO Box 98
Elmsford, NY 10523
In June a random number called me from an 866 area code so I answered it. After a man talked to me about being an associate of Visa/Mastercard/Discover card he said that I was entered in a drawing and asked if I was interested in getting some magazines for free. So I was like sure I'll hear what you have to say. So he said his supervisor would call me with more details. Sure enough he called me explaining the deal saying I would actually have to pay for the magazines: $4.16 a week, $53.16 a year. So i said...sure I'll pay for the 18 months that we agreed to and he gave me a "college student discount" so I didnt have to pay the full amount. So not thinking or talking it over with family I gave them my card number and information. But I figured if they knew where i lived and most of my card number already and WERE affiliates of Visa then I shouldn't worry. So...After I noticed a charge for $53.16 on my account within hours I cancelled my card and sent in a complaint to my credit card company to reverse the charges since that wasn't what I agreed to. Now just today IMC calls me and says that I owe them money or else they will send the collection agency and I have to pay $956.88!!! I explained to the man I no longer want the magazines, they charged me for more than I agreed to, and I want the charges taken off my card. He said that's now allowed even though one of his "managers" told me I could cancel at any time. So a warning to all DON'T GIVE IN. You can't cancel, they take your money, and send you nothing. What a headache.
Send me a message if you've gotten anything for the "collecion agency"
I ordered PC Magazine, Wired Magazine, Maxim, Car & Driver, and Mens Fitness on January 8, 2009. I was told to allow 90 days for the magazines to arrive. It has been more than 90 days as it is April 10, 2009 now and I have still not received any of the magazines I ordered. I have received Weight Watchers, Nickleodeon, and Parenting, I have no idea why I received these and can not contact International Magazine Company with the number they sent me with the information package. All I get is a busy signal. The number they sent me is [protected].
We received a phone call from a lady who said that we owed money to her company. As she went on to describe what was going on I told her I had no idea what she was talking about. I than talked to my boyfriend and he told me that he had talked to her over two years ag and the company had offered him a magazine subscription service. When he realized how much it would cost he called and said he had changed his mind. We never heard another thing from them until Feb of this year. All of a sudden she was calling and saying we owed them over 800.00 dollars. I informed her that I needed to ask my boyfriend before I paid the bill. I talked it over with him and he even tried to talk to her but she told me he kept hanging up on her and that he was plain old rude to her. I talked to her some more and than we agreed to pay the past due balance of two payments of 81.90. She told me we would be receiving our magazines right away. After we did not receive any magazines I called back and talked to some man who told me I was a liar and that I just did not want to pay my bill. So I went to our bank and they reversed the charges. Now I am getting angry phone calls from this woman, she supposedly has no supervisor to talk to and I am again a liar. We are still refusing to pay the company and they keep calling offering us great dvd deals. She is threatening to send us to collections and have lawyers come after us if we do not pay.
This company is a ###ing scam! I now have a lot of information about the company and the way everything works. I have talked to my lawyer and I think we might be contacting them soon.
