NMS Subscriptions Dishonest selling practices running a scam Glendale Arizona
*Author of original report: NMS Subscriptions Glendale Arizona
I was then transferred to his supervisor Jeffrey who recorded our conversation about me agreeing to a 4 year subscription. He did not mention the FREE issues however. He did pressure me to put the entire bill on my credit card for an additional 10% off. I declined because I wanted to see the new format before committing any money. Eventually I got him to send me the bill.
In October I received a bill for $141.04 but no FREE magazines. I did not pay. In November I received a PAST DUE statement. I contacted NMS and was told that they have a recording of me agreeing to a 4 year subscription and they were holding me to it. If I refused to pay they would send it to Galaxy Collection Service. I inquired into the employee who offered me the FREE magazines and they stated he no longer works for them. The only thing they would do was lower the subscription from 4 years to 1 year for $43.80 which is about $30.00 more than most offers available!
They also said they included a 5 day cancellation window which started the day after they called me. But how would I know that their offer was fraudulent in those 5 days? I didn't receive any magazines or correspondence until the bill arrived a month later!
This company is running a scam. Their salespeople offer deals that are fraudulent and the company puts the responsibility on the consumer to catch them at it. I have registered complaints to the Better Business Bureau, Wisconsin Dept. of Justice, a Private Attorney, and ESPN headquarters. Hopefully this matter will be dealt with and my credit repaired.
