About 1 year ago I ordered two trial offers of skin lotion. In the online questionnaire, cleverly tucked into the payment authorization for the shipping and handling costs for the skin care products, was a question, multiple choice. It asked, if you were to read a magazine, which one would you read? Nothing in that question suggested a magazine subscription or that a different company would pirate my payment information and begin an unauthorized magazine subscription. The magazines kept coming, with no information as to who was sending them. I tried returning to sender only to get the magazine back Everytime. So then I started calling every company I had ordered Christmas gifts from and the subscription department of the magazine. Suddenly in November, 2 more magazines arrived. From 2 different publishers. So now I’m receiving Self, ESPN and teen Vogue magazine. After contacting teen Vogue and ESPN to no avail, I remembered the skin care products and took a chance. They are the ones who finally gave me the name and number for Area Magazine. I googled that company and it was a veritable Pandoras box of complaints about said company. I tried to email the company to give them my cancellation in writing. The website shuts me down, I called the company and explained the problem and tell her to cancel my subscription. She refused. She told me that I cannot cancel my subscription, I don’t have the authority to cancel my subscription. I told her to cancel it, absolutely. I told her she did not have the authorization to bill me. I never gave her company the authorization nor did I give her company any of my info that she had stoleny info fraudulently. Guess what? I got another self magazine yesterday. Who has the authority to cancel this fraudulent subscription as well as stop this company from taking money out of my account? If not me, then who? God?
