Active Periodicals is telemarketing their magazine subscriptions under Publishers Clearing House. Please note, PCH does NOT make phone solicitations. Active Periodicals is offering discounted magazine subscriptions along with gold and diamond watches if you sign up and a chance to win the $1 million dollar sweepstakes.

Additionally, they introduce this as a monthly subscription that you can change, switch or cancel outright at any time.

First this is fraudulent in terms of who they are. Second, they do not send gold or diamond watches (they don't send anything) and Most Importantly, they lock you into a one or two year subscription which if you attempt to cancel, they threaten you with collections and ruining your credit report. As Ms. Roberts so nicely put it, you don't want us to ruin your credit report over 29.95 per month, do you? This is an outright threat, which I am hoping the government will prevent, and put a stop to this practice. Please beware of this company and avoid all business with them.

#1 Consumer Comment

Feeling uneasy

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

I ordered some kitchenware and they noted that they trust me and I wouldn't have to send in payments until I received my items. But after reading all of these reports, I do not want to send them a check or give them my credit card information. So what should I do to stop it before it gets worse. Should I just ship the items back? I'm iffy because what if they say that I never sent it back?
