They record you making a statement that you are agreeing to this service, and giving out your bank account number (crazy, right?!)"for the convenience of billing monthly". So with the promise of only costing cents an issue for TV Guide, I consented to a $39.90 monthly billing cycle for what I thought was only a few months . --I figured I would receive 6 magazine of choice for free, so it was a great opportunity. I was told in the initially conversation that their cancellation policy was 10 days, they record all of the conversation!
In the interim of the 10 days I ended up breaking my ankle requiring surgery, documented by workman's comp. [continued below]....
I was told I could not cancel, and was told I had passed the initial cancellation period, and that billing would continue. I called again a few more times, to no avail, and month after month saw my account drained of $39.90, and feeling like a total fool. In 2009, I closed my bank account. Then came letters, some in bold print saying I had 72 hours to pay them $500.00! By this time I was no no longer was receiving ANY magazines of any sort, though the bills and weekly phone calls , which have turned into daily phone calls persist! .gee, didn't I at least pay for 4 years of TV guide already???
