READ! America, Inc America's Best Magazine Service Deception Mesa Arizona
I just want to make it known to other people to be aware of READ! America, Inc. I did something stupid and took a call from this Company and I now have $539.28 of debt for 3 year of magazine subscriptions. They put a lot on emphasis that's it only $3.46 per week equaling $14.98 per month, and you don't have to pay for the last year. I was stupid and did not think fast even to calucate the total cost! Stupid, Stupid!!! I feel this company was very deceptive in there sale. According to the Telemarketing Sales Rules... the rules require disclosure of the TOTAL cost of purchase, received or used the offered goods/services and the total quantity of goods/services the consumer must pay for and receive. The total cost was not revealed until I received their letter later.
They also did not disclosre their "NO Refund Policy" I was not told during the call until I asked if I could cancel incase money is short because I do Child Care. It was then that they informed me I could not cancel my order, because they are prepaying for the magizes. They don't even disclose this on there Letter Head. However, they do disclore they are a BBB Accredited Business which is FALSE! It was revoked in Febraury 2013 due to 34 complaints.
