The company that I dealt with at first was known as Citizens Reader Service of Shawnee Kansas back in 2006. The deal was to pay $29.95 for a 30 month term for 6 magazines a month which could supposedly be switched at any point. For a period of about 2 years(of a supposed 5 year term) this worked acceptably. Then the magazines I requested became "unavailable" and they started sending me questionable magazines or none at all.

When approached about cancelation they said it was a phone verbal contract and was binding. After 3 years of asking I was able to get them to cancel for a fee of 2 months of pay(which was increased to $114 now) and said I was done.

In the beginning of this month(January 2010) I cancelled a newer account, which I was snookered into by their phone trixters called National Readers Service, also of Shawnee Kansas, although the bills say Treasure Coast of Fort meyers, Florida.

Now, the middle of January 2010, I was contacted again by National Reader Service in regards to being past-due. When I stated that I had cancelled(which I had been called about by 3 separate operators) they said I had a second account and that it would take $400 or 30% of the contract value to break the contract. I never agreed to a second contract and I was misled to agree to the prior as well. They posed it as being an "update" not a new deal. This company is out of control and needs to be reeled in.

There is a large section on about it and I urge you to read it.

Kansas Attorney General files petition seeking jury trial against Publisher's Renewal Service dba National Readers Service aka Treasure Coast Renewals, et al.!!!!


POSTED: Tuesday, January 19, 2010


Thought you might be interested to hear that Kansas Attorney General filed a petition on 12/30/09 listing National Readers Service and Treasure Coast Renewals, Inc. among several defendants and is demanding trial by jury for a multitude of issues including FTC Do not call violations and cancellation & collection practices. Specifically mentioned, regarding Kansas residents, are  inappropriate credit card charges, cancellation refusals, collection attempts after cancellation notice or ceasing payments, and referral of such accounts to independent collection agencies (Leubke, Baker and Associates is specifically mentioned) to name a few. Read the whole document at:  Perhaps this would be perfect timing to share your story. Here's the link for the Kansas Attorney General website.

Dont be discouraged dealing with these people. I was able to successfully resolve my daughters dispute with National Readers Service in August 2009 by very straightforwardly informing them that they had already been reported to the FTC and of my intentions to report them to the AGs, National Consumers League, Better Business Bureau, etc. as well. If they wont talk to you, dont take that as the last word, send notification in WRITING by certified mail with return receipt. Be sure to keep a copy for your records.

I received notice from the Attorney Generals office in Pennsylvania that a file has been opened in response to my report regarding National Readers Service, Pittsburgh.  It will be interesting to see if anything comes of that as well.

Good luck to us all,   D/
