 Today in the mail, I received a notice for the Strike It Rich IX Sweepstakes. Reading the enclosed material, I then called the phone number provided to "confirm" the ID number and activate my entry. It was also clearly stated that no purchase was necessary to enter. The person I was speaking with then proceeded to try to get me to buy magazines, which I sort of expected. I let her say her piece, then politely said I was not interested. She paused for a beat, then continued to talk - pushing the magazines - as if I hadn't said anything. This happened 3 times. I finally had to be rude and simply hung up the phone. I then proceeded to send 2 emails - one to National Magazine Exchange site & one to the Strike It Rich IX Sweepstakes site. Just to be on the safe side, I also called the number provided (different number from the one called to enter) to be removed from the mailing list. That number was a recording where you could "leave a message" including the entry ID# in the mailing. I did so, going further to state that I did not wish to receive any phone calls either. The nerve of this company. I listened politely, said no politely, and was completely ignored. Very shoddy & questionable practice. Should I hear from these people again, I will update my report.

Strike it Rich IX Sweepsteak/National Magazine Exchange

AUTHOR: Joan1993 - (USA)

I received a letter that I was eligible for a winning prize. They gave me an ID number and a number to call. It said it was not necessary to make any purchase or pay anything. When I call they asked me for the ID number and he register me. He told me that I have to go to Florida to recived a check. Then he started to make some offers about some magazines and offered a diamond watch as a gift. He spoke so fast that I had no time to answer rather quickly transfer the call to his boss. He started asking me my credit card. He was very insistent and told him I didn't want no magazines and he insisted on my credit card. I told him that I want to cancel, he told me that cancellations are not accepted. He kept urging asking for the credit card number. I asked him if it was a trusted payment to give my credit card number, he told me that were supposedly a veary trusted US company and did not say anything more. I gave my credit number but with a false expiration date. I still tell him that I want to cancel it because I needed to consult first and he gets mad and start to claim me why and I hang up the call. Then called back to ask them some questions about that suppost winning prize and the person who answered told me that if I had bought the magazines!!
