Complaint / review text:
I received a Second Notice "Official Prize Listing" notice from NME co, which stated "There is no purchase required to enter or win and a purchase will not improve your chances of winning."
However the phone rep-JEANINE-1-800-235-6247 stated, "You have won a FREE Men/Woman's watch with a diamond in each water, plus 3 magazines subscriptions at only $1.29/week... What 3 magazines would you like? What magazines are you taking now? Your subscriptions is what is funding, financing our company..
When I kept repeating, "I do not want any magazines or your fee Men/Woman's watches with a diamond in each! Jeanine stated, I'm getting my supervisor on the line to talk to you. What gift card do you want. Gas card..
On and on she went!!! She would NOT take my "NO" for an answer!
To my credit, I did NOT shout, scream or use foul language! While repeatedly telling Jeanine that I did NOT want any magazines!
Finally I told Jeanine, "If you keep insisting, I'm going to hang up on you!"
I did just that, hung up on her!!!
NME is a FRAUD, MISLEADING advertisement: No purchase needed. Yet, the rep harass the respondent to their notice.
I have REPORTED NME as a postal, mail fraud to LA Consumer Affairs, Better Business Bureau and am wondering the reason they are allowed to be in business, considering the MANY complaints on line!!!
