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/

Maybe the book's not closed after all??...

Thought I'd post a quick update on the notification I received from the Attorney General’s office in Pennsylvania. Evidently a file has been opened regarding National Readers Service, Pittsburgh, PA in response to the information presented to them, and an agent has been assigned to “my case”. What a surprise!! I never expected any response since my letter was presented as simply information for their reference not as an unresolved complaint.

I wonder if Mr. Corbett's staff will be as impressed with National Readers Service's "fabulous offer" as the rest of us are? I just hope they don't leave out the real deal(s) (misrepresenting the actual value of their subscriptions, refusing to honor implied cancellation periods, and deceptive disclosure of the costs of other preview offerings to name just a few).  If I am "advised of significant developments" as the letter suggests, I'll be sure to post them here.

Post links with my entire NRS experience are here.

Thanks for visiting theNRSscam blog. Hope something here is helpful. D/

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.
