My issues with Active Periodicals began earlier this year. I was told all about the Publisher's Sweepstakes Clearinghouse and yadda yadda. So I said sure, send me a few magazines to read, enter my name in a pool and off I go. I couldn't have been more wrong. First of all, I haven't received one single, solitary magazine. I've called several times to verify my address with the company and their solution was that "someone must be stealing them". Second, I was told that I would be charged $54.99 for 6 months, which would double my monthly subscription, but in the end, I would be done with payments in 6 months. Okay, fair enough. NOT!!! I received a bill today saying that I now owe this company $882.94....FOR WHAT?!?!?!?! I haven't received a magazine yet, the $54.99/ month comes no where near $882.94, so apparently they just pull these figures out of thin air. I will be securing legal council from here on out and hopefully the new name of Active Periodicals will be Erika's Really Nice Magazine Business!!
