Our troubles with active periodicals began in early 2005. i got a call saying that i was in a 10,000 dollar drawing and would i like some free magazines. they then told me that in order to process the order for my free magazines that i would have to give them my credit card number for security purposes so being young and kinda naive, i did. they never told me it would cost anything and they said i could cancel at anytime. two months later i found a charge coming out of my bank account going to them for forty dollars and when i called to cancel they said that i could not cancel and that it had all been explained to me when i ordered the magazines and that i was paying them back as they had paid the publishers in advance.

So i told them i was canceling my debit card and not paying them one more cent as i had not authorized any charges to come out of my account. they then began calling nonstop three or four times a day at all hours, usually starting at 8 am. then they sent our names to a credit bureau(supposedly) and they call nonstop now. well, tonight i found their website and i looked up their terms and conditions and it states clearly that you can cancel, they are just a bunch of liars who will stoop to any level to keep getting your money. i spoke to several people through them and they told me repeatedly that there was no way they could cancel my account. they told me also that they had a recorded conversation on file and it was legally binding, however, how can you have a legally binding contract without ever signing anything. where i am from verbal statements don't mean anything and won't stand up in court. and also whenever they called there would be loud music playing in the background. they are nothing but a scam!

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Go After Them

AUTHOR: Jimmy - (U.S.A.)

Take to the offense. Close your credit card or bank account. These scum have been known to draft your account without approval. If your phone was on the do not call list like mine was, they were in violation of the law when they called. API violated it on my home phone and cell phone. The first time we got taken, they represented themselves as Publishers' Clearing House... We finished our obligation and some months after they started telling us that we still owed and tricked us into another contract. These people are evil scum of the earth, they are liars, cheaters, and would sell their own mothers for a buck. I got the BBB in southern Florida on them, I charged them with violation of the "Do Not Call Law", I asked for a copy of their do not call policy, which they did not have. (all have a $500 fine per violation) I wrote to the FCC and the FTC. I got in their face and received a letter clearing everything. I have not received a call back.
