National Reader Service — SCAM
I received an anonymous phone call telling me about this wonderful deal - I would get 5 magazines a month for 1 year, and it would only cost me $60.00. I realized that I didn't have enough money in my credit card account to complete the transaction at the time so I tried to call back to cancel my account. They're business was a scam! -they had no website or phone number I could reach them at. So when they called a month later telling me I owed them money I said I wanted to cancel my account with them and not receive any more magazines -they said I now owed the business $958.00 because it was not a single payment of $60.00 a month they charged me for. THEY CHARGED ME FOR 5 YEARS!!! Then they tried charging me a $270.00 cancellation fee. I refused to pay everything and started getting mouthy over the phone...The customer service representative said she would lower my payments if I was in financial trouble...I told her that I couldn't pay anything ever and wasn't going to. When the representative got mouthy over the phone back to me...I told her that I was going to call my lawyer and then call her back the next day. (I don't have a lawyer and never had the intentions of calling one) But after i told her that she was quick to tell me that she would take the loss and settle my account for free, and to have a nice day...I told her to have a merry christmas.
