These two clowns showed up to my door one weekday afternoon. By clowns I don't mean white face, big shoes and red noses. They told me some story about how they were trying to win a trip to Cancun and they needed to sell the most magazines in order to win.

It just so happened i had been wanting to subscribe to a certain magazine but just hadn't gotten around to it. I figured i would help these chumps out by getting the magazine through them. After I had gotten through the paper work and was about to write the check they told me I had to write the check for ten dollars more than what i was expecting. They told me it was a service charge or something. While i was writing the check to the company name, one of the kids told me to write it out to "PMI" instead of "Palmetto Marketing Inc." That seemed a little weird to me.

After they left, something didn't feel right so i jumped online to check out the company. Thats when i found what everyone else finds when they look up this company. Nothing but rip-off complaints! Luckily my bank let me cancel the check for free, although i would have paid anything so that those f***s wouldn't get a dime of my money. My roommate and drove around the area looking for them to give them a little fairwell bonus package, but they were no where to be found.

I'm pretty sure the reason why this company can keep doing this is because the checks are written to PMI and not the actual name of the company. So legally, the actual company is not the recipient of the check.

Well Mr. Charlie I got somethin to tell you

AUTHOR: Rachel - (U.S.A.)

Let me tell you something, Charlie, I worked for JC slaes, for a week and I was the most devoted worker out there, I spent long hours trying to sell these crappy magazines that I might like to add were way over priced, so I don't know where you live but Rolling Stones you can get a year subscription for 25.00 and on the price listing it was 50 plus the 10 service fee...They starve their kids if they don't make sales, and they could f***ing care less about you and your needs, all they want is the money...there was a guy on my team who got the shit beaten out of him by a bunch of guys during a drop and they still made him work, and he had a broken arm and a three broken ribs, and when I was sick with the flu they still made me go out in the rain and work...oh yeah a really good company...so get your story straight ok? your the only employee here that actually thinks this scam artist of a company is any good...I don't know how long you have been working with them but they must have brainwashed you or something like Marilyn Manson did to his followers, so just stop livin a lie k? have a nice day
