Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs Florida
I was going to call the company to see about my magazine order I placed three months ago only to find out there is no phone number available. So, like others I went searching the internet only to find this website with other customers who haven't received their magazines ordered to help some low-life get to Cancun. Does this company even exist or have I really been scammed? I didn't give it much thought because my husband & I have bought magazines this way several times over the years. But, man do I feel vulnerable. It's too bad because no one, not even a cub scout will get another magazine order from me again. From now on it's the magazines themselves getting my business!

Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs Florida
I was sitting in my dorm room when a guy knocked on my door selling magazines. I ignored it but my other apartment mates let him in. He was trying to sell them magazines but they had no money and I did so they brought me out there to talk to him. He told me the deals and how it was for a trip. It sounded legitimate and the last thing I thought was how it was a scam. I wrote a check for 46 dollars and he promised me I would get my magazines in January. It's March and I haven't seen not one. My check was cleared and I feel I was ripped off. It's not the student's fault, it's the company. I want this company to take responsibilty for ripping off people. That 46 dollars could have went towards something else but I really wanted to help out this salesmen with winning a trip. I am a college student and I can't afford to just give out money. I expected something in return. I want ether my money or the magazines. Shemir Spring Hill, FloridaU.S.A.

Palmetto Marketing BIG RIPOFF Coral Springs Florida
This is the biggest ripoff out there. I bought some magazines in March of 2004 and I have still not received anything from them so it has been way past 120 days. After reading the other reports I know that the kid that sold me this did do drugs and drink. I know this because he asked me to get a hold of some drugs for him. He said that's how his crew would relax at the hotel by getting high and drunk. I had a bar and he kept asking for some shots. When I refused he said that he was going to drink later on that night anywasys. He told me some story about how his team had to beat a team of girls to win a trip. All I know is if I ever see him again, it'll be on! Miguel Austin, TexasU.S.A.

Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs, Florida
A young man by the name of Brandon Franks came to my door on February 1, 2005. He was selling magazines to try to win a trip to Cancun. He said the more magazines he sold the better chance he had to win. So I looked over his list, and settled on a gardening magazine. It costs 24$, plus the 10$ shipping fee. So I gave the man 34$ cash, and he left. Then when I thought about it a little more, and told my boyfriend what had happened, I started having second thoughts about it. My boyfriend told me that he thought it was a scam, and that I should go find him in the neighborhood and get my money back. Although I had my suspicions, I figured that I was just being paranoid. So I just tried to be hopeful. So the next day I asked some of my friends if anyone had come by their houses selling magazines. Some said yes and that they weren't stupid enough to say yes, and the rest said they knew nothing about it. Finally at the end of the day I talked to my sister about it, who said that approximately 2 years earlier she had subscribed to the same exact company, and had heard the same story. But the thing was, she HAD been receiving her magazines ever since. So I was relieved and felt confident. Today's date is April 6, 2005. And I have yet to receive a single magazine. I finally got the chance to look up the company name and I came across these ripoff testimonies. I am furious about this and I want to do something about it but I'm not sure what.

Palmetto Marketing Inc ripoff/scam Coral Springs Florida
June 13, 2003, I had a very nice young man come to my door selling magazines. He was very convincing and excited about the trip to Cancun that he believed he had in the bag if he just made a few more sales. I'm a single mom, was unemployed at the time, but wished to do something special for my son. I purchased Golf Magazine for $30.00. My son has been checking the mailbox daily waiting for his magazine to arrive. After reading this website, I'm not sure how to tell him his magazine will never arrive. Marilee Salem, UtahU.S.A.

Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs Florida
A young college bound guy showed up at my door stating he was in a contest to go to Florida as well as earn money for college. He was very convincing - a natural salesman or con - depending on how you look at this! He sold us a magazine, took our check and then put a bug off note on our door so the others in his group would not come knocking..... That was 4 months ago and so far, no magazines have arrived! I'm just glad I ordered a cheap one - I ONLY lost $29.95 ($19.95 for the magazine and $10.00 processing). Next time - the answer will be NO before the question is even asked - which isn't fair to bonified offers but I'm not losing any more money on scams! Jessica Virginia Beach, VirginiaU.S.A.

Palmetto Marketing dishonest ripoff Coral Springs Florida
Palmetto Marketing scam has spread to New Hampshire. I had a young girl come to my door talking very fast about winning a trip to Cancuun, Mexico for Spring Break. I heard Spring Break and assumed she was a college student. She was friendly and very nice to my two young children. I wanted to help her win her trip, she exclaimed she was in second place. Wow, I did not know how nieve I was! I let her into my home, talk with my children. I told my husband what I had purchased which was a my first dictionary for my children. He then searched them on the computer and all these rip off notes came up about this company. We immediatly cancelled the check! She told me this, she was trying to earn points to win a trip to Mexico. She was from Indiana and her brother was a marine that lived in VA. She said that different things earned her points, such as the book I was going to buy, the check I gave her which was Pooh, because this book was a gift she could get points for that. She also told me that since this was a donation, the money was tax deductable! Well, I am not going to wait to find out! What kind of message is this sending to the youth of America??

I too was a victim of this scam. Friday evening two young boys came to my door and gave me the same talk about selling magazines for a contest to go to Cancun wanting to help I ordered two magazines then regretted it shortly after. THis morning I went to the post office and sent out the cancellation slip. After going to the post office i went online to investigate a little then found this sight proving my feeling of this being a scam. I have since put a stop payment on my check. The back of the form states any returned checks will be subject to a $30.00 fee which I will not pay. I am not going to pay a $30.00 fee for a scam since you cannot even contac this company. I hope others read this before falling prey to the same scam. Dawn Clinton Township, MichiganU.S.A.

Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs Florida
Palmetto Marketing, Fraudulent Magazine Sales, On the night of February 13th, 2 girls claiming to be high school seniors came to my door pretending to be very sweet and charming, and offering a magazine subscription that would help them to win a Senior trip. Not really wanting to spend the money I did find one magazine that i wouldn't mind having, so I went ahead and ordered. The girls gave me a full receipt that looked legit and told me i would recieve it in 90 to 120 days (I also thought that was longer than normal) and I had 3 days to cancel the subscription. Now it is well over 4 months later and still no magasines, I now realize that it was a scam and that this company will not honor my subscriptions despite my reciepts or complaints. The magasines were also overpriced with a $10 processing charge. I guess that is a $35 lesson in life I hope to pass on to others who endure the same. The worst part is that I am too a struggling college student and this looks bad for all students everywhere and needs to be brought to a halt. If you see any similar scam do not fall for it, but instead get your magazines the old way, by using an order form from other magasines. Scott Wilmington, North Carolina

Palmetto Marketing Inc. Rip Off
Last night two young girls came to my door. They introduced themselves as trying to meet new people and selling subscriptons to raise money for a Senior trip. One of them was a fast talker but fairly charming and seemingly upfront with everything. I wrote them a check for two magazine subscriptons, one for Good Housekeeping and one for Family Circle. The amount seemed excessive but I was caught up in the moment and went ahead with the check for $73.96. I had a bad feeling about it after they left. When I checked the address for the alleged company, Palmetto Marketing, Inc., on the computer it could not be found. Then I found this website and read your ripout articles. I have called and put a stop payment on my check and hope that will take care of it. If it does I have learned a good lesson for $8.00! Peggy, Greenville, North Carolina

Palmetto Marketing ripoff magazine scam Coral Springs Florida
We had a young girl come to our door telling us she was trying to win a trip to Cancun through selling magazines. She talked very fast and used high-pressure sales techniques to get inside our home and sell us a magazine subscription. We read over the list and found one we liked and decided to help her out (being that she was in first place, like many of the other reports say). After she left we thought about how much the subscription was and went to the magazine's web site and found out that a one year subscription was $15 less than we were charged. After we noticed the $10 processing fee we realized we had been ripped off. Luckily we also saw the note saying we had 3 days to cancel our order. I looked up the company online and found the phone number. Predictably, no one answered. I found information about the company's practices on this web site and decided to track her down minutes after she left. I found her not far away and told her that I wanted our check back. She seemed very mad and I explained to her what I learned on this site. She did not believe me, but we fortunately managed to get our check back (even though we had to give her our recepits, which I marked our info out on). Thank you everyone who posted here on Rip Off Report for saving us $33 and a headache trying to get our money back. Zach Raleigh, North Carolina

Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs Florida
I could almost copy word for word my account from Tom of South Carolina. On November 18 2002, a young man who represented himself as a school student knocked on my door. He told me that he was in a contest and competing against his colleges to win a prize for being the top sales person. He was selling magazines. The cost of the magazines were about three times the normal amount. But I wanted to help so I ordered. He used high pressure sales techniques, and told me if I ordered he would certainly win and I was his last chance. Then whilst trying to find the Palmetto Marketing Inc. telephone no. on the internet. I came across an exact account of what I had experience. This made me extremely angry as it is not the sales person in question but the techniques a Marketing company will use to get a sale. Running kids from state to state, and manipulating a situation from both sides, the client and the kids who sell these magazines. Plus after such an experience the client will always remember the magazines, not a great sell for the magazine company either. I decided to cancel the transaction and followed the 3 day return policy. The company Palmetto Marketing has yet to return my call and my cancellation has gone registered mail. I canceled my partial payment in the form of a cheque and emailed the two magazine companies in question, informing them that they could be receiving a subscription from me through the Palmetto Marketing company which I had canceled. The one magazine company in question was unaware of these methods used. I really hope that if a kid arrives at your door selling you magazines, Palmetto Marketing inc. does not get your money and therefore less kids will get caught up in this scam as well.

I just wanted to give an update and a few more comments on a message that I placed a few months ago. This company is a scam and the dirtbags that work for it should be in prison. Kids??? Old enough to know better. One guy on this site said that he had worked for them and wanted us to feel sorry for him. Why don't you come out here and go door to door giving us our money back you arrogant son of a bitch!! As for the honest people that lost the money they worked hard for, we should all keep this on our minds and keep on the government and web sites like this one to put an end to this scam. It is no little scam... people (according to other sites) have even been killed. People are getting hurt. Like one kid said Be Careful... But, DO NOT let this rest. Keep up the reports. Keep calling, faxing, emailing, etc... Let's work together stronger than ever to shut this place down. TO anyone who says that they worked there or do work there now, I feel sorry for you but YOU and the others are the REASON this continues. Help us, join us and feel better about what you did. You ripped people off, innocent people...not crack heads like you. Mad and not giving up!! Belleville, IllinoisU.S.A.

He then gave me a slip from the Palmetto Marketing Inc with his name and the sales company which he represented cba.

I ordered some magazines yesterday from these people, it seemed to me it was an awfull lot for 3 subscriptions ($14.00) so, since I thought about it last night I decided to call them today to change the order for only one subscription, since I wanted to help out the very nice gentleman that came to my home yesterday (and yes, he was going to win a trip to Cancun too). So, I look in the receipt for a customer care phone number and there wasn;t one ... I read the back for return instructions and there's a part that the seller has to fill out, a blank square, like to add a department number, it wasn;t filled out, so, I think to myself If I mail this with this part blank like it is right now with just my return info, they will use that as an excuse to not give me my money back. So I come to the search engine and type the name of the company to look at their website and get a phone number, all I found was this website with hundreds of complaints about this company. I read them and I realized that I was in fact a victim of this scam as well, I called my bank and put a stop payment request for this check, because fortunatelly I didn't have any cash on me whicj is what the gentleman wanted originally at least for one of the sunscriptions... I'm mailing this cancellation thing today, with that blank space for the department number in blank, but they're not getting any money from me. I thought it would be appropriate to add my experience in this website to benefit other people and to possibly emd with this once in for all, it seems to me that in a country like this, with so much law enforcement, there's still a company that can rip off people this way. Good luck and don't fall for it! Thanks to all that have added experiences here, if it wasn;t for you I'd be 114.00 out right now! Eloisa Hampton, VirginiaU.S.A.

On June 3, 2003, I was woken by a knock on my apartment door. I was half asleep and didn't have my contacts in. I open the door and see this homely looking black boy standing there. He was like blah blah blah I'm not here to rob you and all this bullshit. i'm like ok and let him in. Big mistake. He kept going on and on about some trip to cancun or something. He asked for water and I went to the kitchen with him. He commented on my sisters Simpsons collection and carried on about that. He then saw the flag and shell casings from my dad's funeral and commented about that also. He just knew everything about everything! Made up some bullshit story about living on the base for a while and his dad was in the military and blah blah. He asked to use my bathroom, stupidly I let him walk back there himself and also at one point left him in my room with all my dvd's and cd's and stuff when i went to get my check book. Anyway, I actually thought about cancelling my check but I didn't. Come to find it it was a scam after all. He didn't steal anything. If I had known it was a scam I would have punched him in his flat nose and shot his ass for trespassing. Matt W. Carrollton, OhioU.S.A.
