This company is so shady. I am already working with one magazine company. company X. About 2-3 months into my relationship with X, what I, or any consumer would think that it is the same X company calls me with this intro line.
"Hi we are the company (no name given) that handles your magazine subscriptions. (soundling as if we are already doing business together) blah blah blah, we need to confirm the information you already gave us (which I never gave this company) So I "confirmed" my info. only to find out on my bank statement that I am getting billed twice as much, for duplicate magazines from different clearing houses. WHAT THE CRAP!
Move ahead about 2 years or so, I move (in june), and get another bank. Not closing my old account at my previous address. I during the months since I've moved, I was checking my balance on my old account weekly. Not once did AEM attempt to take funds from my account.
They called me a few times saying that they have updated lists of the magazines they offer, yet I have failed to received 1 new list. Nothing. I even tried to close the account by mailing them a hand-written & signed statement asking them to close my account.
When I moved, I attempted to call them several times, only to be greeted my a voicemail system. As far as my phone records show, they have only contacted me once since then, Last SATURDAY Jan 3rd! They said that they have been trying to reach me since November regarding my account in which funds were being drawn from. once again, WHAT THE CRAP!
The lady on the other end said that if this is not rectified in 4 weeks that my account is going into collections. CHAT the WRAP!
I attempted to call them back today, only to hear ringing for 2 minutes. No answer, no machine, no nothing.
If anyone calls you with this premise, hang up immediately. Once I actually make contact with them I will be DEMANDING that they close my account, and do not call me again.
Please if anyone else has had this happen to them, let us know!
