Newmax Complaint - Free? - Billing

Review by Duch252 on 2010-12-10
This afternnon I read an article about a book Written by Mrs palin, being curiuos about what she has to say I acpted the special offfer for $4.95
Included in the offer was a series of magazins opinions and whatever, evreything was rejected by me, all I wante was the book. In order to pay for te book I gave them my credit card number,

Behold, I was charged an additional $ 49,95 for an issue of several magazines. I don't want it!! I called the number given to me for customer service, nobody to answer my complaint!!

I did not want them to charge my account with anything, we have a fixed income and not prepared to have $ 50,00 deducted.

I double checked all my entrees, the question is: why? feels like a scam?

If you call a voice tells you not to contact your credit card company, they will give you credit?Why go trough all this trouble?

It's Newsmax, not Newmax. This offer was $5.95 for shipping the book IF you subscribe to the magazine for $49.00.

But I will admit their solicitation is very poorly written and not clear at all. But it did what it was designed to do - separate you from your money.

REMEMBER:
EDUCATION is what you get when you read the fine print.
EXPERIENCE is what you get when you don't.

this seems the way these type of places work. promise one thing, and take another. contact your credit card company and see if they can stop or reverse the charge.

just goes to show no matter how carefull you are, they sneek in some way.

very helpful.
