Last summer I enterd an online sweepstakes @ Buckmasters.com to win a bunch of hunting stuff and a video taped guided hunt.
well about a month later I got a phone call from some southern hill billy that I couldnt even understand telling me he was with buck masters and I had won a package with a game processing kit with a bunch of knives, gift cert to cabellas yad yad. I caught a couple of words in there and got excited as hell!
then he goes on the say to claim my prize I have to buy a 5 year subscription to buckmasters magazine for $127.00
well this chit starts smelling fishy so I told him I WOULD NOT BUY A MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION OVER THE PHONE WITH MY CREDIT CARD! he asked me if he could bill me by mail. I told him I am not interested in your magazine as of yet but if he would send me an information kit to my home including an inventory of every thing that I could claim as winnings with the subscription information to my home I might be persuaded to subscribe.
Mind you I can not understand half of what this cajun hick is saying over the phone.
few weeks later I recieve a magazine from them in the mail with a bill for a 5 year subscription. no prizes no nothing.
I figure well I am not payin this. so I threw it away.
they proceded to send me annother bill. I threw it away.
they sent me a bill saying this was my last chance to "ACTIVATE MY ACCOUNT" I threw it away.
They called on the phone asking if I was interested in some thing or annother securing my hunting rights and public land yada yada. I told them I did not subscribe to their magazine I would apreciate if they quit sending me bills to a subscription I did not agree to and that I wanted to be taken off of their contact list. the person on the phone said ok ill get this taken care of and hung up.
Well today I get a letter in the mail from some bullchit collection agency in new york, licensed in kansas, with an address from north carolina and a head quarters in colorado?
sayig that my bill with buckmasters magazine has gone to collections for $127.00 and I have 30 days to respond.
I was so pist!!!! I called buckmasters magazine wanting this chit straigtened out and they told me I had made a verbal agreement to subscribe to the magazine and that I was legaly obligated to pay the membership dues or have the colection go against my credit! and that If I hadnt wanted the subscription I should have contacted them when they started sending me bills!
HOW CAN SOME ONE SEND YOU A BILL FOR SOMETHING THAT YOU DONT WANT SOMETHING YOU TOLD THEM YOU DIDNT WANT! AND YOU BE LEGALY OBLIGATED TO PAY FOR IT!?!?!?!?????
I AM SO PIST!
