I was contacted by the company to renew magazine subscriptons. I was told my subscriptions were running out. I may hve renewed a couple. I used a credit card to have monthly payments. Soon I began to receive unwanted magazines that I had never ordered and did not want. I contacted my credit card and cancelled the payments. Then I received a bill from Area Publicatons regarding “”Violation of Agreement””. The amount was for a past due amount of $98.80. My son wrote a letter to the company demanding cancellation of the magazines and a refund. I then had a phone call from the company and wa told that if I didn’t send a check covering the current charges of $199, I would be contacted by a collection agency and this would affect my credit rating. I then sent a check for the $199. I have tried calling the listed number and the call doesn’t go through. .
