American Express Sweepstakes Travel and Leisure Golf Player Club Junk mail ripoff Internet

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

Beware American Express customers!  My recent credit card statement showed an $89 charge I could not identify. It read "AEPC Member Services" and "T+K Golf Player Clb."

The Amex sweepstakes junk mail I usually discard without opening includes an "automatic charge" of $89 for a subscription to Travel and Leisure Magazine if you don't open that mailing and return the sweepstakes entry form indicating that you don't want to subscribe.

This is a sneaky trick to fleece Amex customers who don't carefully read their credit card statements.

I contacted AEPC Member Services and was told that the $89 charge would be canceled.
