The evening of 07/23/18 a young woman, Whitney, knocked on my door and claimed to be selling magazine subscriptions in order to earn points towards receiving a cash bonus as well as other assistance to go to college. She spent a great deal of time talking to me about my neighbors she met earlier in the day and her personal story as a single mother coming out of an abusive relationship. I wrote her a check for $176 for two magazine subscriptions for my children. As of today 09/09/18 I have not received any magazines. After looking up the company online I do not expect to ever see any magazines or a refund from this company. This entire operation is a scam.

Type of a scam Other
A young man came to my door selling magazines. He was well dressed had a great story how he was an intern and that the magazines he sold all went towards his tuition. He told me all my neighbors by name that had purchased subscriptions. Filled out form wrote a check, and now 5 months later no magazines. I have tried calling the company numerous times and there is one person no answering machine and says he is away from his desk try back later. I have no way of recouping the $163 in subscriptions I purchased and my daughter doesn’t get the magazines she wanted. Last time I ever try to help a kid out.
