Hello consumers, I am filing a report for Reading Associates of America or formally known as Readers Across America and might be going to TeamGreen USA. This is a magazine crew that is a scam, they are about to have some new products but i recently found out they are a scam. I was working with the company and was helping out with book work and the sales of the magazines. As i was fairly new all the other agents were telling me what a scam it was and i did not believe it until i sent my family magazines that they never received. What really tipped me off was an agent we will call her J goes out there and tells customers that she is going to a college and she was getting all her magazines sent to charities. Well doing some research the hospitals and charities never receive them and if they did would be overloaded with magazines. Also of the list of magazines i heard that she does not even have a clearing house or that most are not available. So after hearing this i was left stranded in a major city with no money and no where to go. Luckily my family would not let me be stranded. They really thought i was doing good since i was working 15+ hours a day. Some more information about this crew is that Alot of hard drugs were overlooked when brought to Maria or Mary attention. Also the owner Mary or Maria and everyone else are major pot heads and always on the look out.

During my short time with the company i was fed lies from the owner about how the other crews and old employees had taken her agents and forced her to come back on the road when all reality all the crews are after her because she is a scam and giving magazine business bad name i have spoken with a few of them. I am doing this report to make aware of the scam most of these companies only have to pay around 4-5 dollars to the magazines to the publishers and most of them are free. And they are charging around 40 dollars for one issue where is all that money going, not to the agents they all get around 4-10 dollars and issue if they are lucky. The company still owes me almost 300 dollars but with no paycheck stubs and cash given daily i have no proof to get it back. I urge all u to not buy magazines or cleaners from this company unless u want to get rip off also never give anyone cash who comes to the door. I will also include some lies the agents are using.
1. I am one of your neighbors i am doing a project for school.
2. I am doing a study abroad program.
3. going for an internship for major broadcasting
4. NCA meet the people program, is most used and was the one i was using but i never saw a dime or new my points.

These are just a few i had heard in short time i was there, watch out for door to door sales and also they have people in parking lots such as Wallmarts, targets, grocery stores, any kind of plaza's where alot of people are.
Again if i had sold u something and u never got it i apologize i was fed lies and really thought it was on up and up wish i was not so blind but maybe i can help others.
