National Magazine Exchange — want to cancel
I received a letter stating to call the following number to be entered into a sweepstakes giving them my registered prize entry number [protected]. I made the call and was conned into purchasing magazines at the rate of 1.29 per week for all the magazines and they said they would bill my bank account for 67.08 for 4 months and I would receive magazines for 48 months. I was told that I could cancel the order within 3 days. The number given [protected] which I attempted to and received no answer. My account has been debited june 13, 2008. I was not aware until I got online and found out that this company has defrauded me and want the order cancelled and my account credited back. I felt pushed into this by their operators and supervisor. I am currently totally disabled with multiple sclerosis and have shingles which I am heavily medicated for the pain and was taken by surprise. I realize that if I had not been medicated I would not have agreed to the sale or given my information out. I thought I was entering a sweepstakes for $2, 100, 000.00. I was told I could cancel within 3 days and they already took the monthly payment out of my account.
I want this cancelled and my account credited immediately. I wish I had checked out this company before but was not thinking right when I spoke to them. When you are lied to and cheated under the pretense of this being a sweepstakes with no purchase required. Being disabled with ms and on a fixed income I am not able to afford such a expendature. I need you to make sure that others like myself are not drawn into such schemes and fraud. I have learned a lesson that there are too many companies out there preying on the elderly and disabled people. It is imparepatived that my account be cancelled and my money returned to my account. Sincerely yours, karen stone
