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!!

Where can I find help dealing with a magazine scam?

There is a wealth of telemarketing and magazine scam information from the Federal Trade Commission, National Consumer League and others. A collection of helpful information links can be found here on theNRSscam blog's Spotlight on: Magazine Subscription Scams, as well as, specific suggestions for dealing with a magazine scam.

The Federal Trade Commission and Federal Communication Commission provide assistance in stopping unwanted telemarketing contact through the National Do Not Call list.

Assistance may be available through your Bank or Credit Card Company for reversing and addressing fraudulent debits. In the case of unauthorized debit activity criminal charges can be filed with your local law enforcement agency.

Your local consumer protection organization may be the most qualified to answer specific questions regarding your situation, as well as, to provide potential assistance in arbitrations with a business. The Better Business Bureau provides immediate consumer access to individual business ratings within its database and by filing a complaint they may offer assistance with arbitrations. BBB complaints are accepted whether or not that business is a member. In the case of unacceptable resolution of disputes, seeking legal counsel may be your best option.

While the Federal Trade Commission and Attorneys General do not provide legal advice or intervene on the behalf of individuals, reporting fraudulent business practices may show patterns that increase the likelihood of triggering official investigations.

Spotlight on: Consumer Protection Resources has links for reporting fraudulent business practices, finding consumer protection agencies and organizations, magazine industry and marketing associations, and opting out of unsolicited marketing contact.

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.
