*UPDATE Employee: Area Circulation Employee Response
One day, after a hectic time on the phone with them yelling about a bill I recieved while I asked to have my subscription canceled, they told me okay, they would cancel it. Phew. I thought it was over....until a month went by and another bill came in the mail from them (not to mention they were also billing my credit card directly but also expected double payment by mail!!!) So, I called them back and they said I had canceled my one account and OPENED ANOTHER ONE! I couldn't believe what I was hearing. Why would I want to open another one? They had deliberately canceled my first subscription and moved it to another account WITHOUT my knowledge, so they whole time I thought it was canceled, I had been paying for the damn company.
Well, I finally thought to cancel my credit card due to their fraudulent charges. I went to my bank and explained what had been happening and they said they would contact the company and talk to them and tell them they are not allowed to charge my credit card anymore because my account with them is supposed to be canceled. Well, I thought they would stop but they didn't. Just last week, 7/07, I had recieved a bill in the mail from them expecting their monthly payment of $35.88!!!!
I just sent them an email telling them I am not a customer anymore and to stop billing me because I will not pay and I canceled my credit card. If this does not stop, I will have to seek further action. I didn't think a company like this would be so fraudulent with customers.
Oh, and for further information on my case, this has been going on since 2006.
