Ripped off by Hearst Mazines(SCAM company)
I'm wondering if anyone here has ever subscribed to magazines such as Popular Magazines. Four months ago I subscribed through Hearst Magazines paid by credit card, thinking Popular Magazines is a pretty well recognised magazines. First two months I could put up with thinking there might be some error. Writing to the people in Hearst Magazine only resulted in auto-reply messages. Third month there was one reply with a case i.d. At first I thought I was getting somewhere. Still, nothing happened. I wrote to them again showing some frustration, I asked whether I will be getting my first issue this November or next November. The reply was:
"Thank you for contacting .
We have extended your subscription so it will continue through the November 2011 issue.
Customer's email address: email@example.com
Case id: 12214311
" What does that mean? I have written to Consumer Protection. I doubt any action will come soon enough.
But I am writing here as a warning to anyone and everyone to beware of this scamming organisation.
If you feel the need to rid the world of such people, I encourage you to spread this message.
Thank you all.
