Then the representative, Lance, told me if I signed up for 3 magazines (Elle, Better Homes & Gardens and Metro Home) then he would give me a free diamond watch (mens or womens) and $40 to go towards gasoline. I decided to hear him out and he passed me to his "supervisor" for more info and the supervisor went on to offer me a SECOND diamond watch and a free organizer and two more magazine subscriptions for free if I agreed to pay $1.29/week for the three first magazines.
All the alarms went off in my head that this was a scam so I checked out this website and saw the other complaints against this company. I hung up on the "supervisor" Patrick and hurried to write this report now. I just hope that they don't start sending me bills or magazines like it sounds like they've done to others. I am worried they may have recorded my voice saying "yes" to something and cut and paste it. I hope California Law will protect me because I am for sure not paying these scammers a penny! I don't care what happens to my credit.
So thanks for everyone sending out the warning reports!!! You may have helped save me from a scam. :) Thanks and God bless!!!
Cant Tell, California
