Two young people came to the door selling magazines stating that it was a program to put young people to work. I didn't want or need the magazine, but I wanted to help young people. So, I ordered a magazine subscription. I wrote a check for 34.00 for 12 issues of Bon Appetit magazine. I still have the receipt. The number is A20772. I waited the 120 days. The order was placed on 9-22-08. Since that time I have called and left several messages. I also wrote them a letter staating I had never received the magazine. I asked them to either send the magazine or a full refund. I have called since then requesting a refund. Thirty four dollars doesn't seem like much, but it was my money. There is no way to tell how many other people did the same thing. What is most upsetting about all of it is the guise of putting young people to work.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance on this matter. Thank you SK
I got rip off and I'm an Officer one day while working in the yard. Trusting and trying to give a young person a new start at life, at least that was the tag line given to me at the time. Anyway my losses were only $33 however several of my neighbors purchased magazine prescriptions too and our losses are in the hundreds. There was a ( white Dodge late model) van full of these rip off artists combing our neighborhood. However my block had only one. In the van were both males and females of all races. My crime took place 11.29.08, the receipt I received has the address of Universal Subscription Agency, Inc. PO. Box 15187, Chesapeake, VA 23328 Phone [protected] * Fax [protected].
Please Beware and don't let this happen to you!!
False subscription selling - don't be a fool and write a check out to them. They will not deliver your magazines and they will cash your check within a week. Beware.
My 12 yo daughter ordered a magazine from this company and about three weeks later I ordered a magazine from them. $109.00 later and waiting the 120 days for delivery we never received a thing. It is now over 6 months and have not gotten any response. I have called, I have e-mailed, I have written letters, I have even called the Los Vegas Better Business Bureau and never got any response. I would love any type of response. This is a huge rip-off and I am pissed. The sales people's names were Chelsey Elliot and Brandon Robinson, I live in Leesburg VA and if they ever read this I would love to hear how their trip to Cancun was so please contact me, I would love to hear from you...
