Doubleday Book Club Cancelled and Closed account after many years of doing business, account now in collections Camp Hill Pennsylvania
Last year, I found myself ill, and during a hospital stay was diagnosed with cancer. Since treatment for that particular affliction just happens to amount to about every penny I would make from my job for oh, five to seven years, and was in no condition to work, well I thought that it would be best that I get myself out from any undue expenses. I sent an e-mail saying that I wanted to cancel my membership with the club, although I had been a member for eight years or so. Shortly after I cancelled my membership, my selections for the previous month arrived, even after I cancelled my membership, and that I asked that no more books be sent.
Today, while I have the cancer under control, and a pile of over 400 pages of medical expense charges totalling close to $300,000, (which I should photocopy and send to Doubleday as a book of my own making),Doubleday was sending me statements telling me that I owed them $25.64, beginning about six months after I closed the account. I took the attitude of they can shove their $25.64, I have MUCH better things to worry about.
Most recently, this $25.64 went to a collection agency, who did place it on my credit report. I had to laugh because no sooner did this go to collections, that Doubleday started sending me the monthly selection package again, just as they would if I were an active member. If they EVER send me another book (which they do if you don't mail the reply slip back), I am keeping their books and they better not even try to charge me for them. I would never do business with people like this ever again. There is that OTHER BOOK CLUB out there who has a fantastic reputation, whom I have been with since my teens, and if I want something, will get it from there.
