I got a call from this company saying that i was entered in some million dollar sweepstakes and i could get a free watch with some magazines for only 4.60$ a week and i thought hey why not sounds good. Then I gave in my information and they took out money out of my account right away as a "security deposit" kind of thing and i got mad because no one warned me that they were gonna charge me about over 70$ monthly and right away so i called back in afew days to complain and they said that someone was going to call me back. so i waited a couple of minutes and they called me back and i told them i have to pay bills and i do not have that much money at all and they didnt care saying I made a "verbal agreement" and they already told the magazines company to send it out to me, but i can change the magazines at ANY time since i cannot cancel it. Well then I decided to try it I thought okay fine it seems like a lot of magazines for that much money so i signed up in about june, it is now almost september and do you think that i received anything?No i have not ..I am planning to give them a call tomorrrow, better business bureau and my bank =(

#1 Consumer Suggestion

Here is what you do to get your money back!

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

Same thing happened to my fiance and I. So here is how you get your money back and avoid them posting any other transactions on your behalf.

1) First contact your credit or debit card company (IE: Wells Fargo, Bank Of America, ETC.) and report it as credit or debit fraud (whichever applies to you), and have your card canceled so no other transactions go through.

2) Keep trying to get a hold of the company. There is only ONE number where I spoke to anyone that seemed like they could do anything about it. That number is 727-536-9990. That is the Executive Office for the International Magazine Company. I talked to one lady who seemed nice and has told me that she will be refunding our money back into our account within 3 days. Her name is Jen and her extension is #226. She is the only one who called me back after I gave them our number.

3) If you do not get your money back and/or don't receive a phone call back after giving them a chance to settle this through you, then I suggest you file a complaint with the Better Business Bureau. (http://www.bbb.org/) Go to that site and enter your zip/postal code and it will send you to the Better Business Bureau of your city/county. Then on the right you will see a 'BBB For Consumers' box and you will see a link that says 'File A Complaint'. Click on that. It will then ask you the address of the International Magazine Company and their information. In case you cannot find their information anywhere else here is their info.

Company Name: International Magazine Company
Company Address: 3665 E. Bay Dr. Ste. 204 #253 Largo FL 33773
Company Phone Number: 727-536-9990

(Also remember that you will probably get nowhere if you call back the number that called you. Call this number and you speak directly to one of the top people.) Then explain what happened to you in detail and submit your application. Also, watch your account for further charges although I doubt there will be any if you listened to step 1. If you need any further help just let me know. And remember this will take time to get through to them and get your money back. Be persistent and demanding and you will get your money back. Good Luck. Kelley Santee, California
