*Author of original report: It's true
Received a voucher in the mail stating that I had won $100.00 gas coupon and that I had to call a number to qualify. Was told by their sales rep that I didn't need to purchase their offer, but that I had to listen to it and regardless of my choice, I'd still get the gas voucher for $100.00 off of any major gas supplier. I listened to their offer and declined the offer. I was told that I had to pay $1.95 to receive a written offer, to which I had 14 days to decline in order to receive the $100 gas voucher(s). I could decline the offer at that point and keep the gas vouchers. They never arrived. I called on day 13 and was then told that the vouchers were "rebates" and in order for them to work I had to be actively enrolled in their magazine scam for several months. That the vouchers/rebates would arrive in $10-$15 segments monthly and that I had to buy gas, send in the receipt and the rebate and would receive a check back in return.
So, their scam is that you need to be enrolled for several months in their promotion, by which time you have paid $600 in full for the magazine scam, in order to receive the rebates monthly for a small amount. After some months you can happily cancel the magazines and pay in full and not receive the 60 months of 5 useless magazines that you signed up for.
It's a scam.
Oh and to get my $1.95 back, I now have to call accounting tomorrow to complain.
So at least they figure most people won't go through that trouble and they ding you that way at least.
Steer clear of these scammers.
