What's on theNRSscam blog?


Don't miss the links in the text and in the handy sidebar.

theNRSscam blog was created to provide general magazine subscription scam information, consumer protection resources, specific information about National Readers Service, and suggestions for dealing with magazine subscription scams.

If you have found any company's business practices to be deceptive or fraudulent, I strongly encourage you to contact your local consumer protection office and file complaints with the Federal Trade Commission and Attorneys General. Feel free to link this site to any relevant discussion you encounter, help me keep my promise, and make the ability to keep doing this type of business more difficult!!

Thanks for visiting, D/

How can I make them stop calling me?

If you are already on the National Do Not Call List, inform them of that fact and report them to the FTC or FCC. You may also consider contacting your Attorney General. Registration no longer expires, and your number is never removed without your specific request to do so.

If your phones are not registered, all landlines and cell phones can be easily placed on the National Do Not Call List. Complaints can be filed, with some restrictions, after 31 days. Some states may have do not call lists in addition to the national registry. Check with your state consumer protection office or Attorney General's office.

A specific consumer request to be placed on any company’s own Do Not Call List at the time of wanted telephone contact must be honored for five years. This requirement is regardless of whether your phone is registered on any national or state DNC list or not. This requirement even applies if a “previous business” relationship exists. Violations can be reported to the FCC.

Conduct of debt collectors is restricted by the Fair Debt Collection Practices Act (FDCPA ) to prevent abusive, unfair or deceptive practices. Within 30 days of contact from a debt collector request written validation of the debt. They must stop contacting you until that written verification has been sent. You may also specifically request in writing that the collector not contact you again or direct all contact through your attorney if you have one. While this does not prevent debt collection efforts, they may only contact you after such notification to inform you that no action will be taken or that they intend to take a specific action, such filing a lawsuit. Violations of the FDCPA may be reported to the Federal Trade Commission and your Attorney General. Questions and answers about the FDCPA can be found here.

About me & theNRSscam blog

My photo
I'm no one special, my kid is just one of "the scammed", and I'm keeping the promise I made to National Readers Service. By the way, while I can attest to the truth of my own personal experience with National Readers Service as presented here, I cannot make the same guarantee for the other complaints and comments posted here or linked on this site. Also the suggestions offered here worked for me, the opinions I post are my own, but neither constitute legal advice. You'd have to consult a lawyer for that, of course. I hope you find something helpful here if you need it.
