Shortly after ordering magazines, for myself and my children, from Viking Magazine I moved to a different location. When collection calls from this service started coming in I was very surprised. I'd changed my address through the postal service, but I had never received the magazines. I never received any contracts from the company. The first payment had come out of my account a few months prior, and then after that, no contact whatsoever. I had assumed it was a scam and forgotten all about it. Whenontacted by a collector, I told them my situation. At first he was very nice and explained to me that magazines are considered class B mail and wouldn't have been forwarded to a new address, so they'd just been returned to the company. So, I then asked to cancel the account. The Rep. then told me it was too late and I'd have to pay for the service. I asked to speak to a supervisor. I told this lady the same thing that I had told to the first Rep.. "Why should I have to pay for magazines I never received?!?", I said. "How was I supposed to cancel a service if I never received a contract?!? ", I cried. I got nowhere with her. Finally I got rude and said, "I'm not paying for something I never received, so go ahead and turn me over to collections, and I'll just dispute it as a false claim!", and then I hung up the phone. Since then, these people call me 4-5 times a day. They contact me at work, after repeated request not to. They have no shame. I will not be bullied by a magazine service. I'm not paying a debt that I don't owe!! When will this nightmare end?!?
