Any Magazine Company Informative - Your Credit Card

Review by Anonymous on 2004-04-26
I have had many people call me after having purchased a magazine subscription, telling me that I needed to be aware of companies that were trying to get me to buy from them. They would ask to verify my credit card # and then I would end up with a bill for magazines that I would never have in my home up to $1200. We even had a girl call us back 3 times in one night yelling at me and my husband and calling me a b* and my husband an f*. Please do NOT give out your credit card over the phone. I had to learn the hard way.

Yeah, well the simple and easy use of credit cards make our lives easier at times, but also make the lives of those meaning to do us harm much easier as well. I have one for emergencies only, and I am also not afraid to use cash (imagine that) today. My friends give me a hard time saying that I have to wait longer for things, but instant access is not always long-term gain. Sorry you had this issue, hope you get it resolved.

Thank you. We did get it resolved. The "contracts" were for up to 6 years and it is illegal to hold anyone responsible for anything over a year without a signed contract which I never did sign.
