Hello. My name is Valerie Edinger and I am writing in a formal complaint about a company called Omnipresent Inc. I have searched them online through the Better Business Bureau and I wish I did this before anything happened with them so I would know what Im dealing with.
A year ago (or so) I got a phone call on my cell phone from this magazine company called Omni Present Inc. I worked over night I believe at that point and they called me early on a Sunday morning on the cell phone so I was less than pleased about that. In my delirium (I was half asleep) they mentioned something about magazines. At that point I was a radio DJ (still am) for a radio station in NJ so i figured I could use some of these entertainment magazines for my show. So at first i agreed to pay for these magazines that I wouldnt even normally agree to if i was coherent. I shouldve hung up the phone because what happend since then was nothing less than a scam.
I would get these magazines not all that often either, and I had to pay out the nose for it. Whats worse is i had to pay out the nose to make it stop! The last purchase to make it stop was on one of my credit cards for $300 dollars, it showed up as magazines I believe. I thought that was the end of it. This week (December 4th 2008) I get a phone call from someone named "Anthony" at this phone number: [protected] I tried to search it online and had no luck. He did however tell me (when he called me earlier this week) that Omnipresent Inc. was bought out by his company that he works for right now called National ...?! (i know thats not the full name of the company i dont remember his phone was cutting in and out). Anyway i then told him that i didnt know what he was talking about when he said "oh we are calling to see how you like your magazines"...i then told him my membership with his company expired and he said that i am on a 5 year subscription contract with them and eventhough i cancelled it by paying the 300 dollars he told me that was only for the first half of the subscription! At this point i was spitting fire i was so mad and i then asked to speak with his supervisor to straighten it out, he then told me that he is only available and when i said i wanted the number for customer service he then told me that he would call me back later on in the evening instead. He called me back around 6:30pm and i didnt answer because i went on the BBB and found out it is a fraud scam. I just dont want any collection letters or anything affecting my credit from this situation...i dont know what to do because he said that i will be receiving a package from them this monday...which is tomorrow...i am so stressed and upset over this i just want it to go away but i refuse to pay anything since i took care of this already. Plus i went onto the magazine websites themselves and most of them already say that my subscriptions are expired and others dont even have me as a subscriber so what is going on here?! I hope you can help me with this. Thanks!
A guy called me telling me about a $50, 000 sweepstake I was entered into. He was very kind and respectful so...
I originally signed up for a magazine subscription offered to me by International Magazine Co. over the phone. One of the only questions I asked was "Can I cancel at any time?". The response to my question was vague; along the lines of "We don't encourage our subscribers to cancel." About a week after signing up for the subscriptions, I was informed that I was going to be studying abroad, so I called to cancel, to little avail.
The woman who took my call, was snide and condescending to my situation; "Didn't you initially know you were going to be leaving the country for 6-8 months?!". In the end, after much frustration, and having her inform me that I was obligated to pay for the 7 year subscription (an obnoxious sum of close to $800), I agreed to pay the "lowest cancellation fee" available (approx $180) for magazines I may never get because their system appears fraudulent. This happened almost 8 weeks ago and I have yet to receive any magazines promised to me for the year. To say the least, I will never accept any over-the-phone offers ever again and am disappointed in the dishonesty and obscurity presented by International Magazine Company.
Magazine company offered me a free deal of magazines but charged anyways, I attempted to change my magazines and inquire about the charges but the phone number provided to me by them was not in service and the phone number under the bank statements was also fake([protected]). I received letters warning of debt collectors and later received phone calls from a debt collection company called Luebke Baker & Associates telling me I owed them roughly $800 but offered to settle for $200. There are also various consumer complaints about the legitimacy of this company as well.
National Magazine Service has renewed subscriptions to 2 magazines without any notice or authorization from...
On February 20, 2007, a check was sent to International Magazine Service in the amount of $59.98 for a two year extension to our Playboy Magazine and a free one year subscription to Penthouse Magazine. The account number is ZNT0000502670-3 in the name of Rosemary Fischbach, 3108 W 99th St, Cleveland, OH 44102. To date, we have not received the Penthouse Magazine, nor has the extension of the Playboy term being shown on our mailing label. Can someone you help?
