Magazine Connection
Magazine Connection Magazine Club Misled me into believing they were another magazine company I had been dealing with for a few years. Denver, Colorad
28th of Apr, 2011 by User414007
I was contacted by the Magazine Club (also known as Magazine Connections) in November 2010 and they implied that they were the other magazine subscription company I had been dealing with (more or less successfully) for a few years. They wanted me to refinance my subscription program to shorten the payment schedule, which I did, and at the same time I complained that I had not been getting the magazines I requested. When the bill began to arrive, it was only slightly different from the bill of the other company, but I could see that this was a completely different company and a completely new account. They happened to call again in April 2011 and I complained that I had been misled and on top of that was not getting the magazines I wanted. They said pretty much, "Too bad," and that they could prove by a recording that I knew what I was getting into. They then said the cancellation fee would be almost $400. I told them I had been swindled, but they said their lawyers could prove that I got what I wanted. Avoid dealing with Magazine Connections or Magazine Club at all costs.

I just recieved a past due letter in the amount of $249.90. I have never signed up with Magazine connection. I did sign up with Readers Source in 07. Readers Source was making unauthorized withdrawls of $200 a month. After getting my lawyer involved it was (I thought) sorted out. I sent a Cease and desist letter and even got a confirmation letter stating my account was cancled and no further payments due. now 2 years later another company magazine connection is saying i owe 249.90.

Omg the exact same thing happened to me yesterday. Back in 2008 I had a subscription with a magazine company but when they asked to renew i declined, they kept sending me magazines. I get a letter in the mail yesterday from Magazine Connections saying I am 249.00 pass due as of Feb 2010 the letter was dated for Sept 2011 and all together they said I owed the, 999.00. Im like WTF who are these people this was the first time i had ever recieved a letter from them. I told my husband I was worried I did not want this to be on my credit, and I never ordered from them nor have I heard of them. What should I do?

This company is a scam. They have recently reactivated accounts that have long been cancelled. If you have been or are being charged by the company file a dispute with your bank or card company. Next file a complaint with the Attorney General in Colorado and in your state. Lastly, if you are on the National Do Not Call list file a complaint with them. You have not been doing business with this company previously so they should not be contacting you.

Similar problem with them. They said they could stop a magazine that I no longer wanted to recieve. A year later I am still recieving it and they have sent me a magazine today that I consider to be porn. I have complained to the post office. I will not pay for their magazines and will not buy magazines from the companies that do business with them. JC from VA
