Palmetto Marketing ripoff Pompano Florida
My husband and I were approached my a young man at our home. He asked us to help him get something (I don't quit remember) by subscribing for some magazines. He said I would receive them in 4-6 weeks. I wrote him a check for $58.00 on March 7,2002 and now it is almost 3 months latter and no magazines have arrived but I did receive the return check where they had cashed it at Admiralty Bank in Boca Raton FL.

Palmetto Marketing Deceptive marketing lying stealing Clarksville TN
I was woken up on a Friday morning by a knock on the door. A man, no more than 25 years old explained that he was trying to get votes for a trip to Cancun. I told him that I didn't want to buy any magazines. He assured me that I wouldn't have to buy a thing. I stepped outside and he started telling me how he had to go around and get people to vote for him. He pulled out a laminated sheet of paper and handed it to me. He laughed and said, I lied, you do have to buy magazines. I thought I was going to get paid more than I did this month, so I ordered a subscription to Cosmopolitan Magazine for $60 plus $10 that he didn't mention until the very end. He hands me the two tickets that he wrote up the order on, tells me that there is a number on the bottom of the ticket to call if I wish to cancel my order, and assures me that they will not cash the check for AT LEAST two weeks. Later that day, I picked up my check and realized that I had barely gotten paid enough to cover the magazine, much less food and toilet paper for two weeks. I scoured the ticket for a number to call, but no such luck. On the back there are instructions for cancelation by mail and the name of the company. I called 411 to get the number for the company. There was a very rude woman on the phone who told me that it was IMPOSSIBLE to cancel the order by phone and I would have to mail it or fax it in. The next day, after depositing my paycheck, I went to the ATM and discovered that my check to Palmetto Marketing had already gone through and bounced. I was left with -99.70 in my account.

We ordered magazines from two high school students back in November. They were trying to win a trip to Cancun. Bought 69.00 dollars in magazines, one which was to be a christmas gift promised to be delivered by christmas if we were to pay part of the cost in cash. We have as of Jan. 29 not received any magazines or even a notice of any to arrive. Looking at the receipts to call and find out what happened to our magazines We find that there is none. After being told that the phone number was on the receipt if we had any problems. Janice Tomball, TexasU.S.A.

Number to call for refund help! .... Last week I called the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services at 1-954-341-8135. They said out of 24 complaints on Palmetto Marketing, they have recovered 24 refunds. I just got my complaint form from them in the mail and will mail it ASAP. I hope you will all do the same and get everything owed back. Good luck, I will keep my progress posted. PS: As I was filling it out, a guy comes to my door selling books to win a trip! I hear my husband telling him I will have a few choice words from him as went to the door. He claimed his company was legit and Palmetto marketing was the devil of scams. I told him to get off my property. Talk about coincidence! Sherry dunwoody, GeorgiaU.S.A.

Palmetto Marketing ripoff Coral Springs Florida
Looks like I may have been scammed too. A young girl came to my door Jan. 8, 2004 with a very good spiel about being able to take a trip to Cancun and being among 200 students who just graduated high school in this contest. I am not a person to fall for these door to door scandels, for one there is no soliciting aloud in the apartment complex I live in. However, I merely felt sorry for the girl and wanted to help. I was a little disturbed by some of the things she said to me and I did ask some questions. She told me that she was from Tennesee and was one of 2 teenagers who get picked from each state to do what she was doing. She said she had family in TN that she really missed and couldn't wait to get home and that she would be taking 3 of her family members on this trip to Cancun. (yeah right) That disturbed me being a mother; this is what pissed me off - she told me that if I didn't have a check or enough cash she got extra points if I took her to the ATM with me to get cash. I was furious that any supervisor would allow that none the less encourage it. She told me she had gone with a young man on a motorcycle not too long ago to the ATM so he could get cash and another man in a car. I asked her why she would do that and wasn't she afraid to do something like that?? She told me that she would not go with any older men but younger men and any age woman she was comfortable with getting in a car with. (Wonder if her mother knows this??) She said that she had good instincts and doesn't go anywhere with anyone she's not comfortable with. Weren't we all like that as teenagers? I mean really I know I had no fear but that is beyond!! I will be calling and sending in for my money and cancellation. Hopefully, I'll get it back, if not there's always the newstations :) But, more importantly I'm praying this poor girl has a safe return to her family! Julie Holiday, FloridaU.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 ripoff Coral Springs Florida
A young man came by my residence one day selling magazines, he had one I was interested in and it looked like a good deal. I wrote out a check and he was on his way. Not two minutes later another sales person came by. I told them I had already contributed to thier company and I described to them the magazine I had purchased. The second sales person told me that the magazine I had purchased was no longer available. I sent them packing and cancled my check. I recieved a letter in the mail also stating that the product that I had purchased was no longer available. Then Palmetto sends a collection agency after me over not paying them for goods they did not have for sale! I tried calling them and when I did get to speak with someone, they gave me the runaround and told me it was not thier problem I had bought something they did not offer. They also went on to state that it was between me and their independent contractor who sold me the magazine to work it out. This company is one of the biggest rip offs out there.

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.

On 11-23-04, two young men came to my door selling magazines. I thought they would make good Xmas presents for my daughters so I purchased a 1 yr. subscription for Teen Vogue for the amount of 34.00. They put the name and address as follows, Robin Madaris, 216 Turkey Hollow Rd. (I live on Turkey Hop Rd, and didn't notice this error until later). Holly Pond, AL 35083 The seller was named Brent Kennedy and both young men said they were selling them to win a trip. Reciept #(041)4128652 The second magazine was a 1 yr subscription to Disney Magazine for the price of 32.00 sold by Dion McNutt. The name on the reciept was Ashley/Alissa Madaris 216 Turkey Hollow Rd. (again, wrong address) Holly Pond, AL 35083 Reciept #(029)4128656 Both reciepts say to allow 90-120 days for delivery, but I had asked if these would start earlier, as they were Chrismas presents, they assured me they would, and I would recieve something in the mail confirming the subscriptions within the next few days. Since they put the wrong address, I don't know if they magazines are going to the wrong place, or if it was just a rip off. Either way, I was ripped off here for 66.00 and I am not happy about it. We just purchased this home in August and I don't appreciate anyone taking money that would have went for actual gifts for my daughters. If the magazines start arriving, I will come back and delete this report, but I do feel I was scammed here, as I was guaranteed delivery by the holidays. I have ordered magazines before for gifts and always recieved a gift tag of some sort, on this, I didn't get anything, and this is such a small town, I don't think the post master would have missed that it was the wrong street adress and fixed it. Thank you for your time on this matter. Robin Holly Pond, AlabamaU.S.A.

On May 6, 2005 A young girl came to my door. I was spending time with my son after work. First thing the girl said is who she was, what she wanted. Then she asked if i was going to touch her or kidnap her. I said why would I do that. Then I got no answer. The girl asked if i wanted to help her, buy buying magazines. Then said this contest is to help win her a trip. I said i dont have the money right now. Then my son came to the door also. She saw him , then She replied - this would be good to get for kids, showed me the flier she had. I said That I wont have the money for at least 2 1/2 weeks. The girl said ok no problem. So when I wrote the check out she said i would get 24 issues for $48. That would be 1 issue per month for 2 years. Today is june 23, 2005. Still dont see any magazines. On my recipt says i will get 16 issues with in 2 years period. I called PMI today. They were so rude. they said they cant controll what sellers do, They said they dont take checks that are post marked. Well I made my check out for 5-21-05, the girl took it, it cleared the bank 2 days after that day. The supervisor was even rude and said they are not refunding the money, and i only get 6 issues per year , starting somewhere near 120 days. I said that is false advertisement. They said dont know what to tell you, you had 3 days to cancel. I think people are not getting the magazines, that money we give, just goes to pay for the trip she is taking. I said when i pay for something, i want it now or within 4-6 weeks. Not 3-4 months when you orget about even ordering. This was for my 2 yr old son. The sellers name is S. Marquez. She said she is from Cleveland, OH.- Anyone have Ideas? Nathan Uhrichsville, OhioU.S.A.

Well to start these two high school boys came to our door selling magazines. I right off said no thanks and then my husband rounded the corner and asked what it was about and they went into their shpeel for him. So as we were asking questions here comes my two girls. Of course the boys say oh and here is a magazine for the girls Disney Princess, so like all kids they begged and we gave in. I wrote out a check for $70.00 for two magazines and it's going on 4 months and still haven't received them both. Only one has came and now one daughter feels left out and looks in our mailbox daily for the magazine. I wish I would have found out about Palmetto before I had wrote the check out to a scam of a company. I would rather just have my money back and forget this crap even came out way. The boys even gave us the number so we call and get a busy signal and then we find another phone number and of course it has been changed to an unpublished phone number. This company should be shut down specially when disappointing young children C STERLING HTS, MichiganU.S.A.

THEY WERE REALLY CHEERFUL, TOLD ME THAT THEIR WERE GROUPS OF TWO IN THE NEIGHBORHOODS IN OUR SMALL ILLINOIS SUBUBUAL AREA, (CARMI, ILLINOIS) TRYING TO RAISE THE MOST. THE MALE TOLD ME HE WAS FROM PA AND WANTED TO GO TO COLLEGE IN KNOXVILLE, TN. SHE DIDNT SAY. I ASKED THEM WHERE THEY WENT TO COLLEGE AND THE GUY SAID, SIC, OUR LOCAL COLLEGE. I FELL FOR IT AND BOUGHT A MAGAZINE FOR MY DAUGHTER AND PAID WITH A CHECK. THEY LEFT AND WENT NEXT DOOR. 20 MINUTES LATER I GOT A CALL FROM MY NEIGHBOR WHO IS A SECRETARY FOR THE WHITE COUNTY SCHOOLS ADMINISTRATIVE OFFICE, SHE SAID SHE DIDNT BUY, AND WANTED TO KNOW WHAT I THOUGHT, TOLD HER SUCKER ME I BOUGHT. SHE SAID SHE DIDNT BECAUSE THE GUY TOLD HER HIS BROTHERS AND SISTERS WENT TO SCHOOL IN CARMI. SHE ASKED HIM, OH, WHO ARE THEY AND AFTER HE SAID THEIR NAMES SHE NEW. SHE TAKES CARE OF WHOS REGISTERED IN THE SCHOOL DISTRICT. she new their were no childeren registered in those names. she told them to hold on she had food on the stove, she went and called my number. my internet was left on and i never got the call. She wanted to tell me if i bought those magazines I could come over and get my check back before they leave. After I seen a missed call I called her back and thats what she told me. I GOT SUSPICIUOS AND GOT ON THE INTERNET AND READ ALL THE NEGATIVE FEED BACK FROM NOT RECIEVING MAGAZINES. PEOPLE LIKE ME.. SO I JUMPED IN MY VAN AND OF COURSE THEY WERE NO WHERES TO BE FOUND.

AFTER I GOT TO THE POLICE STATION THEY HAD ALREADY HAD LOT'S OF COMPLAINTS AND PEOPLE WHO HAD GIVEN CASH IN TOWN. I of course gave check. Police said that they had had these guys and let them get away. The police had stopped a suspicious van with a group of college age people that had Florida plates. One got smart so they arrested him and kept him for the night finding after running a check on him that he was wanted in NY. They called NY and told them to come get him and they didnt want him! They let him go early that morning and he disappeared as did the others they run out of town earlier the night before, not knowing what they had been doing or they could had investigated it more. Well I did my part by going to the police after reading all the testamonies about their scam, following my suspicions, and wanted to share it with others. They wont be getting my check money, i stopped payment, I closed my checking all together for fear of identity theft and opened another. Now I still have to do something about my drivers liscense was on there so im going to have that changed too.

Palmetto Marketing, ripoff scam Coral Springs Florida
Today I had two gentlemen come to my door to sell me magazines (Chad Dyer and J Calby). They seemed really energetic and excited about a trip that they were going on. They seemed really pushy and wanting them to leave, I decided to go ahead and allow them to sell me a couple of subscriptions. Yes, the price did seem very high ($38 for Readers Digest and $32 for Glamour), but I thought that I was doing my good deed for the year by helping them out! As soon as the two boys left, I called my mom and let her know about it. She told me that she had read in the newspaper that some kids were going around selling subscriptions as part of a scam. So, I got onto Yahoo and searched the name of the company and found all kinds of rip-off reports. I then decided to call my bank. They did charge me $25.00 twice to stop both checks that I wrote, but at least these kids and the company won't be seeing my money! Kristina Bowling Green, KentuckyU.S.A.
