Sept. 5, 2009 I had recevied a phone from a company called IMC, Inc. A representative notified me that my name had been put into a sweepstakes and that I had won a hand crafted Quartz watch and a free 4 year subscription to ESPN Weekly, Rolling Stones, Heavy Metal etc.
At first it seemed to be a good deal because the representative told me that all I had to do was make a one time payment of $4.66, She then proceeded to tell me that I had to speak with her supervisor and to put in a good word for her.
Apon speaking to her supervisor he began to act suspicious. He began to tell me all of my personal information such as where I lived, My full name, what type of debit card I have, and my debit card NUMBER. He began to then tell me that I have to pay for one magazine subscription, but for one month was $79.13. I then hung up the phone, I did not tell them they could bill me and I did not agree to anything.
After the conversation I checked my bank account and I had been charged. I notified my bank they labled the charge as fraud and I cancelled my card. I reported it too an Idenity Theft Unit.
I also called IMC,Inc. later on that day to cancel my account I had to call them 3 times to actually speak to a supervisor. I was told that within 72 hours the charge would come off of my account.
Around 7:06pm I got another call from IMC,Inc. I talked to Tyler again and tried to tell him that I want to cancel my account and he refused to allow me to cancel my account so my wife got involved and she had a big dispute with Tyler that ended with my wife telling them that they will be hearing from our attorney and he told my wife "So you think you can take us to court" and now we continue to be harassed by IMC,Inc. on a regular bases.
