Veritas Lied, Cheated, and Stole from a Single Mother Woodstock , Georgia
On August 2, 2009 I had a young man, named Donald come to my door. He advised he was selling magazines for his school. He was in competition to sell more than his other classmates.I had seen him and a couple of other young guys, go to a few of the neighbors houses, while I was outside with my daughter. At first I told him, no, as I didn't really have the funds, as a single mom. But he did politely push, and said that he just wanted to win points to beat the other guys. The competition was to win a free trip.I accepted him as an honest student, and allowed him to come in my home. He showed me a laminated paper with different magazines listed. I agreed on National Geographic for my daughter. I wrote him a check for $48.00 and he filled out a receipt for me. (I still have a copy of the receipt and my carbon copy of the check.) The check was written to VCI.After we talked a bit, he asked to put a sticker on my door so the other guys wouldnt come and bother me. He said his mom made the stickers for him, they had Scooby Doo on it and something to the effect of Donald has visited here...I allowed him to put the sticker on the door, and a few weeks after, I took the sticker down and threw it away. I was advised it would be 7-10 weeks before I got the magazines. I never received them. The check cleared my bank though, and because I gave a check versus my credit card number I had no way to stop the check after it had cleared.Online it advises there are only 2 employees of the company, Veritas Communications LLC. And the information advises it is a company that offers door to door sales of magazines.After researching online I show the co-owner of this Magazine Sales company is David Fussell of 4721 Pine Dr South East, Acworth GA 30102-2892. This address shows a little home on the google maps. From information I found online, I feel he also worked with Southern Circulation.All numbers have been disconnected. If you google the address on the receipt, 308 Etowah Valley Trace, Woodstock GA 30189, you can see a picture of the 3 bedroom home. Its not a business. This home was to be auctioned on April 5, 2011 due to foreclosure.I was cheated and I was lied to. I was scammed. To date I still do not have a magazine, and I have continued to look for further information regarding this company.I want my money back, with interest. I promised those magazines to my daughter. They didn't only scam me, they cheated my daughter as well.
