We got scammed just like everyone else under the Active Periodicals subject. Just about every story applies to my wife and I. I read all of the reports on this website and took the advice.

I filed a complaint with the FCC, FTC, and BBB of Southeast FL, I also emailed the publishers and request no more magazines be sent to me. I was suprised to see that my wife received an email from the BBB after only one day.

The big shocker, Alex from Active Periodicals called and said she would cancel our account and zero it out, followed by a letter stating so.

The secret: in my complaints I cited a request for damages of $500 for each violation of the do not call registry (2 violations documented, more that I did not keep record of) violation of 47 USC 227, and 16 CFR Part 310. I also cited the AG reports from Georgia and West Virginia.

I asked for a copy of their do not call policy ("We don't have one" $500 please, for this violation)

I Too Was Taken...

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

I was wondering if you could please tell me the numbers or how to get a hold of the FCC. I am living in Georgia and I am well aware of the 75,000 lawsuit placed aganist them for their misleadings on their telemarketing.

Another person to contact in Georgia, Is Michael Thrumond. He is the person who put the fine aganist them. I think that all of the commissioners should know about these people and their false acts.

I actually told them no that I didn't want their services and told them not to call me anymore. But when I agreed to only ONE magaizine I got charged 58.28 and I am currently disputing this one with my credit card company for the 2nd time.

Thanks for all of the information that you have posted.
