In November, 2006 this company contacted my Daughter at College in Wyoming and offered her a deal on magazines. My daughter said yes and signed up for 3 years of magazines at $49.90 per month. When she called me (her dad), I told her she shouldn't be getting magazines. She was in College and didn't have a job.
I called the company and offered to pay a cancellation fee and they said that the fee would be around $900. I told them we didn't want the magazines and they said too bad, pay the money or else. My daughter never received any magazines.
Why am I complaining ... we are getting calls and letters from Attorney Firms stating that my Daughter owes this debt and needs to be paid.

This company, scams you and tells you that you are a finalist in a contest and possibly could win an even bigger cash payout and you could win free magazines for a year. All of a sudden they are calling trying to collect money for their SO CALLED FREE MAGAZINES I have checked their BBB record no surprise they have a "F" rating. We asked to cancel this service when they called us to tell us the real deal... the catch, oh whoops no can do! THERE IS ALWAYS A CAN DO.. for anyone that works in SERVICE there is ALWAYS a CAN DO. We told them they are not getting a DIME from us... mysteriously now they want to see us in court. The person calling us to ask us to appear in court calls from a UNAVAILABLE number.. again I am sure this is not a coincidence!!! I tried to go online to get a phone number to contact WORLD WIDE themselves all you can find is COMPLAINTS rip offs. Unfortunately we received a phone call too late in the afternoon today to do anything about this mysteriously their office shuts down at 5:00 pm in California... and over here on the East coast being 6:00 pm its after 5:00 pm there in California again its never been a 1 hour time difference from Florida to California... but yes yet again MYSTERIOUSLY today it is. So tomorrow I will be contacting my best buddy at Central Florida NEWS 13 and be letting them in on a fun little story. Sometimes you contact the wrong people and they will not be able to scam anyone else after me. Surely my Aunt over at CNN may get a kick out of this as well. Unfortunately I seem to have the right people in my family, and legally they are not allowed to withhold information (such as their recording evidence) from their clients when requested upon being the subject matter (WHICH I RECORDED our conversation with their representative, along with witness) they had stated. I am so glad I have done my homework, this will be a FUN court case. They can forget about court fees as well as again lucky family of mine we have two lawyers in my close knit family, who've already assisted me tonight with this wonderful tid bit of information. If they want to hear my recording by all means I won't hold out... from their LOVELY supervisor Ms. Susan :) OH by the way in case I forgot to mention it "I DO NOT RECOMMEND WORLD WIDE PREFERRED PUBLISHERS" however there are ALWAYS ways around such scams. They could do this the easy way.. but I almost am looking forward to their so called "hard way"!!!
Below I have attached a screen shot of my google search for their phone number... good luck getting a GOOD number for them!
Calls you from random and uses tricky sales pitches to fool you into agreeing to a magazine subscription, that you cannot cancel. It also seems that they will continue to send you more magazines, even after the subscription period has ended. Rates could go up, duplicate accounts could be created. But it seems they will never let you cancel your service.
