Big Fat Rip Off
WILLIS, TEXAS -- This is the 3rd time that I've made the mistake of purchasing magazines door-to-door from this rip-off company. Shame on me! They use street-smart kids to make their sales, and then cash the check and ... read full review11 Replies - Latest reply on 06/07/2013

WILLIS, ARIZONA -- An agent of Urban nation came down our driveway and asked us to donate money to help provide inner city, poor children with books. We gave $160. When checked online for more info, I found that they were not a charity and the paperwork they gave us was not fully completed. I send certified mail and called numerous time but never got a reply or a call back. We wanted paperwork for the tax write off but as they are not a charity, non is available.

We were cheated out of our money and who knows where it went. This company goes after kind hearted people and deceives them. I have filed a complaint with the Tucson Attorney General.
HONOLULU, HAWAII -- Urban Nation is definitely a scam. A man came to my door, very slick. Told me he was from the south, he had a family he was trying to support. He had come out of the ghetto and was trying to make a life for himself. He was selling magazine subscriptions. Even told me to look on the computer at their website and I called the phone #.

He wanted me to purchase over $300 worth of magazines. I ended up giving him a check for $150 for 3 magazines. Haven't seen a single magazine--he came in April 2008. It is now almost September, 2008.
DO NOT BUY ANYTHING FROM THESE PEOPLE. IT IS A SCAM. I PLAN TO LOOK INTO THIS AND FILE A COMPLAINT.

WILLIS, TEXAS -- I just had to put something positive about this company on the Internet because there is so much negative and not too many people will take time out to compliment a company or its employees. I just want to say like a lot of people, I was skeptical about someone coming to my door selling magazine subscriptions. But, I took a chance on the young man that came to my door. He was very professional and courteous. I even invited him in for dinner with my family. He told me about his background and how he was changing his life for the better. And that Urban Nation was instrumental in helping him to be a productive member of society and make his own way. I felt compassion for him and that was the main reason I bought the subscriptions. He explained it would take some months before the subscriptions would arrive. The subscriptions arrived yesterday. I had forgotten about them but, not the young man that sold them. Urban Nation is doing a great service for these young people and for that reason alone, I would buy again from the next salesperson. I wish him the best of luck in his endeavors.Add reply
