I was surprised to get a call from their agent  who told me I had been selected  to be included in the Who's who because of my poetry and other writings.  It was a long interview and I assumed it was all free up to the point where I was told  I would be included in their book and program.  Then I was offered a lifetime membership for  an exorbitant amount or a five year for over $500.00.  I said that was too much for me and was offered a special promotion for 278.00.

When asked for my credit card information I hesitated and replied that I didn't feel comfortable giving it.  I was given two phone numbers and other reasons to feel safe about it and told it would not be applied until the following Monday because  it was a weekend.  I released the number and ended the conversation.  

As soon as I hung up I  reconsidered (within five minutes).  I called back to cancel and was told the transaction had already went through and I couldn't cancel. So I called my credit company to cancel the transaction.  They withheld payment until they investigated.  About a month later I was contacted by my credit card company and told that They couldn't  cancel it unless I could prove I had tried to cancel the service.  I had no way to do so because it had been done over the phone.

Shame on me for being a sucker.  shame on Covington who's Who for being deceitful.  The services that I received from them are practically valueless and trite.
