Nationwide Reader Service Deceptive, Scam-Artists, Thieves Virginia Beach, Virginia
The magazines were being sent to his previous address (where his ex-girlfriend & all her criminal friends were staying). So, I started looking into it. We filed a report through the bank that the money was being deducted illegally, but they said that it had been going on for a year & a half so they couldn't do anything about it but to block the company from charging his account any more. We cancelled his debit card & even closed his bank account just to be certain.
Come to find out, several different kinds of magazines were being sent to his old address, things he would never even have interest in! Someone at the house was requesting more magazines & just charging it to the previous account holder.
I managed to get online, file a complaint, & stop order. But now we are receiving notices from collection managers! You would think if they could not charge the previous account that the magazines would stop--but they don't! They continue to send them (now to our address since he filled a change address form via the post office) & we just throw them away.
They are claiming he is past due $163.14 & he has to pay $1067.27 IN FULL!!! They are also threatening to collect the claim via a collection agency if the amount isn't received within 10 days.
In 2010, he received a 'free' trial 6 month subscription to Rolling Stone magazine. After the 6 month period, he cancelled it. But that didn't stop them. They began sending Playboy, Outdoors, Automotive, ATV, GQ, & various other magazines that he never requested! Since he no longer resided at this address, he didn't know he had mail there.
This company draws you in with 'free' subscriptions & 'trial' offers & then they begin to steal from you monthly. They do not even verify if the orders are coming from the correct individual. They do not care about legalities until they are not receiving their scam money!
Now my boyfriend is out god-knows how much money that was stolen without his knowledge & his credit is being ruined as well.
