Active Periodicals I was told if I paid the subcription rate for 2 years, I would get the magazines for free after that. After 2 years they advised I had to keep paying for another 2 years. I was very busy working the Hurricanes in Florida (2004) so I went ahead and paid it for another 2 years. Now they say we never had a time limit for making payments. I changed my bank account and now they are very mad. Deerfield Florida

I signed up for a 2 year payment plan for 4 magazines at $35 per month for 2 years and then I was supposed to receive the magazines for no charge. After 2 years they advised I had agreed to 4 years so I went ahead and kept paying it. After 4 years they kept telling me that our agreement was for me to keep paying unless I wanted to send them a cashout check for over $700. I refused and changed my bank account. They responded by hounding me and my neighbor. They threatened to take the money out of my neighbor's account and to call the police on him. I checked their web site which states an individual by the name of Gregory Orr is the President and CEO. Google also mentions a Gregory Orr of Deerfield Beach, FL who was put in prison for bogus magazine subscriptions and other crimes. This individual was also involved with organized crime. I have had it with them and I'm going to report this to the Southern Florida Attorney Office.

Let these morons try to take money out of your neighbors account. That would be a neat trick. And the cops? Let them get called.

Obviously these a-holes are just trying to extort more money out of you. Good for you in changing your account on them. Haha.

Let them b***h and moan all they want.
