Star Ledger Informative - Not getting newspaper

Review by Hedda01 on 2006-07-10
I am unable to get your subscription started due to the following problems:

1. On 6/6 I sent in check # 1146 in the amount of $29.88 and the appropriate form for the twelve week subscription and the cooler bag
2. On 6/13 the check was cashed by Chase Bank
3. On 6/26 I called customer service and spoke to Steven and he asked me to fax him a copy of the check. I will not do so as it would be a long distance phone charge, I finally got him to give the address so I could send him a copy. Copy sent to his attention in Newark, NJ.
4. On 7/5 I called customer service and spoke to Alma. She knew nothing said she spoke to Steven and he did not get the check. She said call back.
5. On 7/10 I called customer service and spoke to Viola, again she knew nothing. She said did I know that I must send in the cancelled check. I said yes, I sent it to Steven on 6/26. She said she would have Steven get back to me immediately.
6. No progress. Even after 4 calls to customer service and being treated like a criminal and having constantly to defend myself. Evidently, you have no records of checks or forms sent in.

Today, I noticed that the Star Ledgers were thrown all over my development even at vacant houses. I live in a senior citizen development. You should be fined for throwing trash in our neighborhood.

Now, I do not want to deal with anyone in your Company and I just want my $29.88 check back.

I am just now starting a campaign to alert all people of your consumer fraud actions and your total lack of concern.

It cost you $.39 to mail a copy of the check, how much could a one-minute fax have possibly cost?

That is exactly what I was thinking. This probably all could have been taken care of in 5 minutes.

...and also what the circulation folks at the Star Ledger were thinking as well.

Keep your original copy of your check, send copies of your originals only, too bad. Don't tip the paper deliverer.

EXACTLY why paying bills with checks is a time-waster -
