Back in January a company called MagazineSolutions a Division of United Publishers offered to send me "free" magazines and coupons. The short of it is, is that a contract showed up priority mail stating I agreed to pay ~ $60 p/mo for 5 years unless I cancelled w/in 3 business days (in fine print on the back of course). I promptly mailed this back to them.
In the meantime I began receiving the "free magazines" and did NOT send away to redeem the said coupons. They are are now threatening leagal action Unless I pay ~ $800 to continue the service or $170 termination fee to cancel this service. Because they (conveniently) did not receive my original cancellation, I resent certified mail a copy of my original cancellation w/ a letter stating I did not want their service and wish to be cancelled.
They are now again threatening legal action and reporting $170 to the credit beaurs because they are claiming that I very well could have post dated the cancellation letter and they don't believe me. I see their point, but come on. This is a scam from the get go, but they are being overly persistant. I NEVER signed anything and have a copy of the cancellation letter(s) and what I thought I agreed to on the phone was NOT what showed up in the mail.
PLEASE HELP ... How do I make this go away? (aside from never answering the phone again - I feel like such a schmuck I should know better)
