I should have checked ripoffreport before I ordered these magazines. I could have saved myself $89.
On Oct. 7 a boy who called himself Pat Riomes came to my sisters house when I was there. He gave me the sob story about how he was earning points for a trip to Cancun by selling magazines. He, of course, was very sweet and attempted to flatter me with compliments. I had been planning on ordering my 13-year-old niece Cosmo Girl magazine, anyway, so I ordered it. I also ordered Disney Princess for my 4-year-old niece.
The total came up to $79.00, plus there was a $10.00 processing charge! $89.00 for 2 magazines! As soon as he left, I realized that it was WAY too much so I wrote a letter to cancel. On the back of the reciept, it says that you have 3 days to cancel. It says to give them 10 business days to get the refund to you.
Well, it's been way more than 10 days and I have yet to get my refund. I have called the number on the reciept (940) 565-1000 at least 6 times in the past 6 days and, of course, it is an automated message where you can leave a voicemail (that no one will ever answer). Luckily, he used my cell phone to call in my account information, so I have that number.
I also have the number of his sponsor, who I just left a message for.
I am going to call my bank and see if I can file a fraud charge against this company. I am also going to file a report with the TX attorney general, as well as the BBB.
I wish I knew what we would all have to do to file a lawsuit against this company. They should not be allowed to continue doing this to innocent people who are just trying to help these scam-artist kids.
