I received a notice saying I had been selected to enter my name for 2,000.00 sweetstate by calling the phone number on the notice. The notice also said "No purchases were required." So I called the number and spoke to a woman. She spoke very fast and had an ethnic accent. I told her several times I could not understand her. At some point, when I finally could tell she was trying to sell me something, I immediately tried to get my husband on the other line as I was concerned I was about to be pushed into something I did not want to get involved with. He did not get on the phone and just told me not to buy anything. As the woman kept talking, I interrupted and told her I was not interested at this time as I had a lot of medical bills ( I have a malignant brain tumor and have had2 strokes within this past year). At that she began telling me more stuff I did not understand because of her accent and told me that the only cost I would incur would be the postage and handling charges for the 'Welcoming Package." and that I whatever it is I was getting I could cancel at any time. Like a fool, I gave her my credit card number; not believing that she would still try to sell me something I couldn't afford after telling my story. I was very wrong. She did. I was quite surprised when my husband showed me the bill for 67.08. He was very upset with me for having allowed someone to talk me into this. I was also upset because I was trying to avoid this kind of thing to begin with. On top of that I started receiving these annoying magazines, which neither of us read or have time to read. Neither of us are Latin, so why would we subsrcribe to Latino magine? Or, to Blender, of all magazines? I throw both of them away immediately. In addition to getting those and other magazines, I am receiving bills and renewal notices from these magazines. It has become a nightmare to me, causing me much unneccesary stress, something I need to avoid, particularly in my condition. I finally called NME. I spoke to a nice young man who appeared to want to help.I told him I wanted to cancel my account with NME . After telling him my story and what happened, he apologized he could not refund my 67.08 and then proceeded to offer me some gifts such as watches, which we received and a $50.00 restaurant voucherm which we did not receive. At any rate, after talking to him, I still am not sure my account has been canceled as there was a lot of double talking. This company is definitely a huge rip off and hopefully justice will be done to them for all of the anquish and burden they have caused.
