My mother was solicited on two separate occasions to purchase magazines.. She has very bad memory loss and she didn't remember signing up. They took over $200 from her account beginning in Feb through May. I cancelled her debit card and contacted that company.. They requested a note from her doctor stating her condition which I did. The owner (Sally) said that she would cancell the account but she wouldn't refund any money to her. Of course I heard this from one of her collectors and was assured she would call me regarding this.. No call..nothing. This company likes to take advantage of senior citizens on fixed incomes. How sad is that? I don't recommend ANYONE using this company... Taking money from an old person that doesn't remember... THEY OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF THEMSELVES!
US Periodicals called and offered me a 3-yr. renewal of Golfweek for $97.50. They charged it on my
credit card and was paid. Golfweek informs me they never received the money and is not extending my
subscription. US Periodicals of Phoenix, AZ sent me a paid receipt. Several phone calls later no one
has returned my calls. I have since found many complaints against this company, thus another one
WOW-- I don’t know how these people sleep at night! They lied and scammed me and now they are threatening to take me to court. First they said I could not cancel but the guy who claimed to be the GM said he would lower my monthly fee. What did he do--HE RAISED IT! He placated me with his personal extension and promised to help me if I had problems. As it turns out he is NOT the GM and the extension does not exist. I can’t believe I fell for it and now the legal department is pursuing me! What a nightmare! Don't make the same mistake I did and steer very clear of these crooks.

Salesman by the name of Lee Hicks sold subscription on 8-10-06, to this day I have not received an issue. Did get ahold of WRS once and was told that my subscription was sent to the magazine company and paid for. Called the magazine company and they have record of my subscription but it was canceled. Do not trust that you will ever get what you pay for when you have a salesman selling magazine subscriptions for WRS. As of now I cannot get ahold of anyone at WRS to get this straightened out. Voicemail box is full...
