Magazines, charges keep on coming

Posted by: under Buyer beware Updated: December 14, 2010 - 10:11 AM

A St. Michael couple can’t stop a barrage of unwanted magazines that keeps showing up at their door. Their mailbox started filling up around the same time they noticed a $46 monthly charge on their credit card.

“After contacting the company doing the charges and asking them to discontinue the mailings and stop charging us for the unwanted service, the representative claimed they could not stop them,” they wrote to Whistleblower. “We need to find a way out of this hell. I think they would be required to stop the mailing when they are requested to stop.”

Whistleblower will try to track down the origin of the errant subscriptions, but in the meantime, what unwanted items have shown up in your mailbox?
