This company somehow got my son's Visa number and started billing him $39.90 a month for "magazine subscriptions". When we called the company, we were told that my son authorized the orders...These orders were for 4 year subscriptions for magazines that he would not have read in 100 years and one was for an order for a magazine that we already have a subscription to. No magazine has ever arrived in the mail. I called them and told them I wanted to stop it, and they said they couldn't refund our money, that we WERE supposedly receiving the magazines and they supposedly have a recording of my son ordering these that they could not produce. They have his social security number and personal info about him and his father, such as where they work...all stolen information.
I called back a couple months later and they said we had reordered the magazines! They said there was nothing they could do because they had already paid the magazines! They were planning on charging him $957.60! I
do not know how to stop them, but I am going to post this on every site I can, contact the Attorney General's offices in Kansas, Florida and Illinois. We have already cancelled the VISA card, but when we disputed it, Chase says it was legit charges...So we have to challenge that again! These people are ruthless. My son even got a call from them apologizing for others calling him (which no one has) and annoying him trying to get him to extend his subscriptions. My son put me on the phone and the man from Treasure Coast refused to talk to me and hung up on me! It is very frustrating!
