I recieved a call from Area Circulation informing me I had been entered into a sweepstakes to recieve one million dollars. As a thank you I would be receiving a number of magazine subscriptions at no cost to me, as well as two extra magazines that I would recieve at a lower rate.

All I had to pay was $74.75 for 12 months and I would get the magazines for several months/years. They confirmed my address and phone number and told me my first payment would be automaticly taken from my card, any further payments I could send in a check, money order, or continue to make with the card.

I was told I would recieve a packet in the mail that would have a list of other magazine titles along with a phone number that I could call should I choose to change or cancel my subscriptions. When I recieved this packet and read through it I found that I had three days to cancel if I chose to do so.

I called the number to cancel and after letting it ring for about five minutes with no answer a recording came on and said: "The NEXTEL customer you are trying to reach is currently unavailable. Please try again later." I tried to call back several more times with the same results.

On the back of one of the papers I got in the mail was a small section for me to fill out if I chose to cancel. It had a space for me to write the date I recieved the packet (09/10/07) and my signature and the date I was cancelling: (09/10/07) I filled all this out and will be mailing it tomorrow: 09/11/07.
