Complaint / review text:
Ok, I was given a deal for 3 magazines for $3.99 a week. I asked if i could cancel the the telemarketer said they have a minimal of 3 months on these deals for the magazines. I asked again if i could cancel after three months and he said yes. So i thought i just get the magazines for three months for $39.88 and cancel. So I'm under the impression I can cancel after three months. Then the telemarkerter said get a pen and paper we are going over a few questions that i need you to write down and we will record me answering them. That is when i got a little effy about this deal and i should have stopped but i went alone thinking i could cancel after three months. Then we did a recording answering about 10 questions.
The next month i saw two transactions on my bank account for $3.67 and i called the numbers on it and asked what was it for they said it was for Shoppers Direct and Travelers Innovations. I had said I did not sign up for this can i cancel this. She said yes. Then i asked when will i be refunded the money. She had said it was not refundable. I had replied i did not sign up for this and i shouldn't be paying for something i did not sign up for. Then she said yes you did i have a recording here that says you did. So she played the recording and it was the 10 questions i answered for the magazines i thought i was only going to pay for 3 months. She let the recording play and at that time i just realized i got SCAMMED and hanged up.
I called Publishers Promotional II and i asked to cancel and the lady says that cancellation can be made only within 3 days. And i keep telling them that the first telemarketer said i could cancel in 3 months. So at this i knew for sure i was SCAMMED. She had play the recording to me again and hanged up.
They called again today May 9,2013. And i tried again to explain I was only going for 3 months for $39.88 like i told the first telemarketer and again they played the same recording. So i hanged up. And did my research about this Publishers Promotional II and found others who are unsatisfied customer just like me.
