A 24 year old guy, Matt Sharp, came by my apartment just after 7:00. I usually don't buy things from people but I thought he was a student at my university and I was under the assumption he lived in my apartment building. He seemed really honest (a good talker) and he really wanted to win a trip to Cancun, I thought it wouldn't hurt to purchase a magazine.

He practically invited himself into my apartment. At first I wanted US Weekly--which oddly he was "out of" I then, selected a magazine, Gourmet, for 2 years for $48.00, which I thought was a little steep. As we were talking I found out that he wasn't student. He also didn't live in my apartment building--which I found weird--as my apartment building is fairly secure.

I gave him a check (and not cash thank goodness) and then sent him on his way. Twenty minutes later two other guys came up to my apartment and asked me to buy a magazine--they told me that Matt was in a different program and that it was "weird he didn't have US Weekly"

So I then asked for a number to cancel my check--they told me I could just go to the website www.nfsa.com--actually they insisted on that--but I insisted on a phone number (I told them I would need to cancel that order before I would even consider buy something from them). I ended up obtaining this number 954-341-8135.

I told them I had to make a call and they could come back. I checked the number and it was correct and I told them I wouldn't be purchasing a magazine. I went on this website--I had some suspicious feelings considering they did not want to really give me the number and I found this site.

I immediately put a stop payment on my check less than 2 hours after writing it and I will be calling and emailing and sending the receipt in tomorrow as well. This probably sounds extreme--but I want to cover all my bases--I do not want them making money off of me! DO NOT LET THEM TAKE YOUR MONEY! Tell them "No, thank you."

Everything about the situation was odd--but I didn't realize that until after I'd written the check and just thought about what had happened--thank goodness I caught it in time and got a number from them.
