Complaint / review text:
Two young adults, a boy and girl, came to my door several months ago saying that they were selling magazines to raise money for their soccer team to go on a trip (something of that sort). The boy also told me he lived down the street, and even commented that his mother had the same dog as I did. Something was fishy about it, as these kids did not look very professional, nor did they seem like they were part of a soccer team. But, I gave them the benefit of the doubt and ended up buying one subscription... Until recently I didn't know it was a scam. Because I hadn't yet received the subscription, I went to their website to check them out... It did not look legit and I realized they lure a bunch of kids into becoming independent contractors for them and then set them up to lie about who they are so people will buy their subscriptions. Looking back, this was actually the second time I was duped by them... The other time was about 5 years ago, and I never received the subsciptions for those either. Well, I will not ever be duped again, and want to make others aware of their deceptive practices so they cannot get the satisfaction of continuing to do what they are doing. So, beware of these young adults who come to your door— they ARE NOT who they say they are.
