I want to get this out there to hopefully keep some other unsuspecting person from going thru this. There is a business out there called Magazines Inc. out of Virginia Beach, Virginia.
They call you and tell you that you have won something and then tell you that you have to give them your credit card number so they can confirm your identity. They told her that she had won a free magazine subscription and there would be a one time charge of $20.00 for shipping and handling. Well that onetime charge has now turned into 3 charges. The first one was for $68.28 and put her checking account overdrawn which in turn ended up costing her additional charges of over $100.00. She has since been charged another $68.28 and $19.99.
We are now in the process of trying to figure out how to stop all this and get her money back. unfortunately she is not the only one to be scammed by these people. You can google them at complaints.com and several other sites. Some of these people have been trying to get this fixed for years. Please lets tell our children about scams like this. If I had warned my daughter maybe I wouldn’t be blogging about it now.
