I was contacted one day to subscribe to Woman's Day and a few other magazines, in return the company would send me a diamond watch as a promotion. I never received the watch, but instead I received a soft porn magazine entitled "Maxim" which shocked me for days. I am a grandmother of 20 children and I am loathe to think that if something happened to me and they went through my belongings and my legacy would be that I would read trash. The company IRL or Active Periodicals drained my bank account because I foolishly believed that they would deduct a "small fee" for handling. I have received to date 10 or 11 magazines I did not order nor am I interested in reading. I subscribe to a few horse magazines and my tastes are not in the magazines they sent and then billed me for. I received a bill today for $119.47 and my husband contacted them and attempted to cancel all magazines and they attempted to extort 360 dollars approx. in order to cancel the subscriptions. I am outraged that someone would think I am so stupid to send money for something I do not want and did not order. I have changed my bank account and I will not receive any further magazines. I want to warn others about this scam and hope that nobody else has the misfortune of having to deal with this same situation. I am contacting the Attorney Generals of both Utah and Florida and the District Attorney and the Better Business Bureau and the Police Dept. for mail fraud and extortion.

Hi Beverly my name is Alex from Kansas and I had also filed a report against IRL in this respective page (http://www.ripoffreport.com/reports/ripoff182323.htm) I was thinking, when you change your bank account did they call you up and "threaten" you to give them a valid account number or they will bring it up and spoil your credit history?
