 In May of 2017, I received a phone call from Viking Magazine saying I won a $250 Walmart giftcard as well as, 2 free magazines. They asked me what kind of magazines would I be interested in? I told them I didn't even read the newspaper, what would I do with a magazine? He convinced me to take magazines and I asked for Home & Gardens, Rachael Ray (1 that Jason suggeated) and he said I would need to pay for 2 to get those 2 free. I asked for a Craft magazine and People magazine. I gave him my credit card information and he told me it would be $39.95 a month and take 6-8 weeks for my magazines to come in. I told him I didn't have any money come in until the 3rd becauae I was on a fixed income. $39.95 was a lot. He assured me that I could cancel my order after 30 days so I could use my gift card. That they would need at least 2 payments before I cancelled. Jason then said that they would email me a confirmation and once I confirmed that I would receive my gift card via email that I could use online at I told him that was odd. I've never heard of using a gift card online. It's the way everyone shops nowdays, he said. So a couple of days went by and I called back telling him that I still had not received an email from him and he said that it would come to me in the heading of "reply to" and he just sent it again. I said, I haven't got it yet. He goes if you don't get it by the end of the day, let me know. I called and left him a message. He didn't call by the afternoon the next day and I called again leaving another message telling him to cancel my subscription. Since I didn't receive the gift card, I didn't want it. This was in July 2017. I never heard back from him. Today September 19, 2017. I called them to cancel my order. A man answers the phone, transfers me to Jason. Jason tells me he is calling because of my deliquent account. I said, I called you. He starts asking me when am I going to make my payment? It's going to collections and he has been calling me. I askes him what phone # do you have? That's no longer my #. He cuts me off and continues yelling at me. He then hangs up on me so I call back and they keep hanging up. Finally. Kayla answers. She starts yelling at me saying they are collecting my debt. I asked her, is this Viking Magazine Services or a collection agency? She said, are you going to pay $300 using your credit card? She became volatile rude telling me I don't even know who I spoke to, calling me a liar. I hing up and googled them online. Found a different number and some lady named Laura got on the phone sayong she was the one who spoke to me earlier. They are scam artists. They are rude, deceptive thieves trying to take people for whatever they can.
