Active Periodicals Ripped Off Deerfield Beach Florida

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

About a month ago I received a call from Active Periodicals claiming that I won a $1000 shopping spree. So I signed up with everything they needed and they said that they'd be taking sixteen 58 dollar payments, which I thought was okay since I wanted to read more magazines anyway, I figured this is the way to do it. However, I calculated the cost and it came to 928 dollars that I would be paying. Even though they aren't technically making a profit, if they never intend to give me the 1000 dollars then they haven't lost anything.

They've called me a couple times on my cell number, but I usually don't answer because I don't answer unknown numbers as a rule and I don't know anyone in Florida. I figure if it was that important, they'd leave a message. They called to tell me that my credit card was decline, which was true and that I have to pay by a certain day or they are going to charge late fees and whatnot. I'm thinking of calling my bank and changing my credit card number.
