Sometime late August, a couple of caucasia girls were driven around in a white pick up truck by a caucasian guy going from door to door selling magazine subscriptions for a company named OK Marketing Inc based out of Kittredge, CO. Their story was that they were in a contest for a paid vacation. No doubt, they might have gotten quite a few subscriptions for about $50 each. On the back of the subscription form there was a message saying how if the cancellation form was mailed to them, then they will refund the money.
Long story short, I mailed the cancellation form, my check was never returned and it was deposited. If you didn't put a stop payment on that check, then you're screwed because they deposite the paper check instead of doing so electronically.
A little background on OK Marketing Inc:
The company was incorporated in Kittredge CO by Jennifer Payne. The true incorporator is James Anthony Fulkerson based out of Gothenberg NE. This Fulkerson guy had been arrested in the past for assault, meth possession, and a slew of other criminal activities. OK Marketing Inc has no website or phone number. Its address is the same address listed for Jennifer Payne, which leads you to a run-down looking building with an unpaved drive way and an unpaved parking lot.
Below is information pulled directly from their article of incorporation filed with the Office of Colorado Secretary of State:
26055 Columbine Trail
Kittredge, CO 80457
James Anthony Fulkerson
712 20th Street
Gothenberg, NE, 69138
