BMG Complaint - Let me go - CD fraud

Review by woody1313 on 2006-01-06
I was a member of the Columbia House organization, because I used to get really good deals. They offered me a lot of free CD's for being a long time member. When they went out of business last year, I found ways to get better deals on the internet. Apparently, they sold my account to BMG Music Service. When I was sent notices from BMG, I sent it back with no order. Later I received a CD (with a bill of course). I can't even get anyone on the phone to cancel the account. This is an obvious hoax to get my money.

you can go online to BMG and cancel your membership (even though you did not sign up with them). When I did that, I never heard from them again...it's much easier and faster than trying to get them on the phone.

They are probably trying to make up revenue for all the lost money from college kids signing up over and over again with fake names in the dormatories. When I was in school, every kid I knew had "friends" receiving the free trial CDs from BMG... you can bet not many of those friends were ever located when it came time to pay the bills.

Two months ago I recieved "A STATEMENT" wooow. it said I owed them 23.10 and that previous attemps went un answered by me.. of course once i saw this, I said to myself "I never had BMG" though i did have columbia house and fufilled my membership of buying severl over priced special edition DVDs. So i ignored that one, following month I recieved another one and immediatly called them and said "I don't know how I have an account number with you when i have never purchased from you" and i asked that it be cancelled and that they stop harrasing me. That was that and i recieved a confirmation letter within 5 days stating my account was canceled.. it was an odd experience.

I had the same problem with them! I sent one back to them and still had to pay for it. They turned me over to a credit agency and put it on my credit report! I hate BMG!
