Tell us has your experience with this business or person been good? What's this?
We had a young girl come to our door telling us she was trying to win a trip to Cancun through selling magazines. She talked very fast and used high-pressure sales techniques to get inside our home and sell us a magazine subscription. We read over the list and found one we liked and decided to help her out (being that she was in first place, like many of the other reports say).

After she left we thought about how much the subscription was and went to the magazine's web site and found out that a one year subscription was $15 less than we were charged. After we noticed the $10 "processing fee" we realized we had been ripped off. Luckily we also saw the note saying we had 3 days to cancel our order. I looked up the company online and found the phone number.

Predictably, no one answered. I found information about the company's practices on this web site and decided to track her down minutes after she left. I found her not far away and told her that I wanted our check back. She seemed very mad and I explained to her what I learned on this site. She did not believe me, but we fortunately managed to get our check back (even though we had to give her our recepits, which I marked our info out on).

Thank you everyone who posted here on Rip Off Report for saving us $33 and a headache trying to get our money back.
