Sept. 12, 2009 my nephew received a phone from a company called IMC, Inc. A representative notified him that his name had been put into a sweepstakes (since he opened a new bank account) and that he had won a hand crafted Quartz watch and a free 4 year subscription to ESPN Weekly, Rolling Stones, Heavy Metal etc.

I told him to not provide his credit card information over the phone but to have them mail him the material. He is a young kid without a lot of experience and thought that he had hit the jack pot with free magazine subscriptions.

We received a letter stating that he was going to be charged 79.13 a month for 12 months for a total of 949.56 for 5 subscriptions for 4 years a piece. This is for a kid that doesn't have a job, stripped of his money leaving a balance of 10.00 and his confirmation on the tape reveals that he said uh hu, yeah, ok now what.... not conclusive in my book.

I asked for this to be cancelled and they told me no on a number of occasions. I have since spoken to my nephews bank and they assured me that they do not sell their customer information so that was another lie that they told my nephew.

I am fighting to get this cancelled and his money refunded with out all of the hassle or harrassement.

Any help would be appreciated.

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

Stop babying your nephew and maybe he'll know better next time. You sound like the type of family member that bails their kids (or in your case nephew) out of every bad situation he gets in. This makes him grow up not knowing things to watch out for. Hence, learning from his mistakes. He can't do that when your bailing him out of each and every one he makes. He's 20 and doesn't have a job? I assume he doesn't go to school either, or he would have seen this as a scam before they got to him. Stop picking him up every time he falls. He's a big boy. He could take care of himself if you just let him.
