I made several attempts to call and cancel and each time they tell me that I am commited and cannot cancel because I made a verbal agreement. I just shrugged it off and figured once I had this payed off that would be the end of it. Well somehow along the line I got tied up with what appears to be 3 different companies.
Magazine Services of America
I have tried to contact all 3 to cancel and they all tell me I cannot cancel due to my verbal agreement, which they have never played back to me. One of the last times they called me at work and I told them to take me off the automatic renewel. Then I recieve mail from Readers Choice saying I started new service in December which I know I did not.
It all boils down to this, in this months statement from my credit card I have this:
4/1 Magazine Services of America 800-476-3053 $23.98
4/1 Magazine Services of America 800-476-3053 $19.16
4/2 Magazine 800-481-1388 $49.95
4/14 Magazine 800-481-1388 $49.95
4/18 Readers Source 800-725-1729 $21.00
I have called all these places to try to cancel and they wont let me. I never ever rememeber anybody telling me that I could NOT cancel. If they had told me I would be locked in and couldnt cancel, I would never have agreed.
When I call Readers Choice (which shows up on my statement as Magazine) at 800-481-1388 all I get is a recording that says to leave a message.
I have contacted my bank and am in the process of getting a new account opened up and cancelling my current one because all of these charges are on my visa check card.
My main concern is that after I do that, they wont be able to charge me, but what do I do if I get turned into collections and all that stuff? I really need help here so anyone who has any input or suggestions please help me. I need to get this all taken care of. Im only 23 and I have a young daughter and just got married and really dont need this stress in my life......PLEASE HELP ME!
