National Magazine Exchange SCAM!!!

61 of 110 National Magazine Exchange reviews

I got the sweepstakes letter to win $1.1 mil.just call the 1800 number and NO PURCHASE nessessary to enter.

So I call and wasted 10 minutes explaining to these morons that I DO NOT want any magazines I just want to enter in the sweepstakes. The woman kept giving me names of magazines and saying "pick 2" then I said " NO I do not want any magazines I just want to enter for the prize" then I was told " we have allure ,teen vogue, cosmo, good house keeping, rolling stones, pick 2" I got so pissed that I said forget it I dont want ANYTHING and hung up!

What a waste of time!They will NOT enroll you for the sweepstakes unless you buy a magazine and that is fraud to me when their letter says you dont have to buy anything!!!!

Excuse my language but that's *** how they came at me thinking imma give them my card info and everything. I kept telling them I don't Want any magazines and they keep pushing me and pushing me. They don't know who they messing with and I ain't the one to push around. What they are doing should be illegal

Yes, and the worst is that they prey mostly on unsuspecting seniors who are used to an honorable world where people never (or very seldom) tried to *** anyone. Those who did were very few and then everyone knew because it was so unusual. The scam was spread far and wide by word of mouth as there was no social media at the time. It's just horrendous. So very sad. I pray or all who are victims as well as all who are employed by such fraudulent companies/organizations.

By law, your representatives should be fired. I called and was told that they needed an address and phone number AND I needed to choose 2 or more magazines before my ENTRY could be completed.

People please. They aren't running any lottery, they are selling magazines! If you want to try to win a lottery, then go buy a d@mn ticket at an authorized lottery dealer.

When you receive a mailing for a contest to win money, it's not a lottery. When you are told you are not required purchase anything but will not be entered until you buy something, it's an illegal scam.

You dont have to buy anything they clearly state that. Regardless when you call your automatically entered as soon as you give your id number. Its their job to read the whole script which means asking you if you want magazines a million time's

I just got the same letter and called the number to enter and they said congratulations that I have been entered and the next thing I knew I was being offered magazines after magazine and I told her that I just wanted to enter the sweepstakes. I end up being transferred to another person by then I was done, so I just hung up on them.

no matter what you are enrolled in the sweepstakes. it dosnt matter if you stay on for the whole convo or for two seconds, they enter you. These morons you speak of have a very tight protocol to follow and if they dont continue with their script they can be fired on the spot. it is there job it is what feeds there kids. its up to you on the other hand to hang up or continue to listen. If you become that angry then why stay on the phone? There is no reason to be rude to them!

Just called right now declined all magazines and was still entered into the sweepstakes. The guy was not pushy lol but quite friendly. The woman was a fast talker but I kept asking questions regarding costs where I decided it wasn't a good deal, six times what I paid in the past

In the business world there are legit business and scams. However there is a grey area in-between that are semi-scams that l would put this company in. They stay just with-in the law and look for loop holes like sending letters to get around the do not call law. They victimize both their call centre workers who need a job and the semi-suckers who because they have poor education and or religious based fantasy thinking, desperately want to believe in Santa Clause and the Tooth Fairy. It's hard to resist this thinking if you have been raised with it and don't have a pot to *** in or a window to throw it out of, as my grandmother used to say. If it sounds to good to be true it probably is (or has strings attached to it).

I actually work as one of the people who talk on the phone for NME. Everyone is entered into our sweepstakes regardless of you picking out magazines or not. Everyone who calls in gets an entry, it is policy. No matter how annoying we may seem to you, it's just our job. So try to be a little understanding.
