I got the usual call from CMI saying they were gonna give me all these magazines and a diamond watch. They charged me $39.90 for the magazines per month. I called them I wanted the rest of it canceled after I found out about the scam. I argued with them for about 15 minutes about canceling the subscription.

After a while I think I got to the woman that was telling me it was against their policy to do that. She tried to cut my payment by 70% telling me if I paid $200 then they would send me the $200 worth of magazines and then it would be over. I kept saying NO I DON'T WANT ANY and that I could not afford them. She finally told me she would cancel the rest of the payments and they would suffer a 100% loss on my account. She also told me that I would receive the month worth of magazines that I was already charged for, then it would be all over. I also told them that opened a dispute with my bank with the $39.90 that they had already charged me.

You could try the same thing but it is a challenge. Hopefully they really canceled the rest of the payments and it is all over with. If they didn't...They will never hear the end of me.

Magazine scam

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

They called me from 1-877-392-6630 and wouldn't take no for an answer. They already had my bank card/visa card on file. They offered me an extensive offer for free stuff and a sweepstake entry along with a free $40 gas card. They said they were going to send me 5 magazines along with the free gas card and other offers. I never received anything except a letter from them telling me that they already took money out of my bank account, which they did without my concent. They said once I told them they could, they would. I didn't want them taking it out of my visa card and told them I would get back to them with another card. The total ammount of the magazines would be $1037.40 after 26 months. I have a reference # and The guys name. Tom Gray..if that is his real name. I will have to contact my bank to try to stop pay. I have read from several websites regarding their fraud and would have not known if I didn't happen to go on line and check my bank account tonight. They have a return phone number they said to call them back on and that number is 1-800-643-1164. A girl answers the phone and doesn't say her name or company name. During business hours..the phones are busy all the time. Their address is 344 Grove St. Suite 50 Jersey City, NJ 07302 but, I cannot find them by phone number or address. I read that someone else contacted the BBB and they could not find them either. I hope I can stop them from taking any further money out of my account.
