National Magazine Exchange SCAM!!!

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 *** 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!!!!

Did they stop the subscription and cancel your order. They woman told me that they would cancel my subscription today so I hope they do, I did tell her I cancelled my credit card.

Guest

i received a letter but after reading about the scam do not think i will reply thanks for the info.

Guest

Not As promised high pressure sales clearing house to gather personal information names addresses and phone numbers, and any other data possible. Never could possibly verify the organization

Guest

Yes, I agree with the sentiments of the previous review. Whether or not they actually make enough money thru their promotions to sponsor a sweepstakes with that kind of prize money; I don;t know.

I've never read of anyone winning a legitimate prize through this agency. I do know that when I tried to enter the drawing a few years back, I was hounded by a very aggressive salesman who irritated me enough to just hang up and not enter the sweepstakes. I truly wonder about if any of these sweepstakes; including Publishers Clearing House are in fact legitimate, law abiding agencies.

If they were legitimate, they should notify not just the winners but the losers as well; to let them know the drawing has taken place and regretfully our number was not selected. This would go a long way toward establishing credibility with these agencies who I believe are mostly scams!

Guest

I also received same for $10,000 I will not waste my time.

Guest

I just received a letter to enter to win $45k, and was checking to see if it is a scam. Sound like it is to me, and they just want to sell magazines.

Guest

Guy didn’t mention buying anything to me. He just asked me how I would spend the money.

Then he mentioned a watch, I abruptly cut him off and said I’m only interested in the money. Then I just hung up

Guest

I KNEW they were crooks!

BiG MISPRINT

National Magazine Exchange - BiG MISPRINT
Does anyone read the fine print on the back of the sweepstakes form. They screwed up big time if some where to really win they could be sued since it states they could be paid 30 payments of 36,000.00 of the 1.100.00.00 they don't write 520,000.00 they wrote 500,000,00 I will take the second choice since it's 500.00.000 billion not million. They really need a proof reader.

On the back side of the letter it has the rules as well as the payout option you can take 30 payments of the 1.100.00.00 million or you can take a lump sum of 500.000.00 that's billion not million. They need a proof reader. r

I have decided not to get the magazines that were ordered on 2/8/2023. I have no need for these. Also my husband was very upset with me. Please cancel my order. You also told me that I was not required to purchase anything in order to enter this prize payment sweepstakes. You lied to me. Thank you very causing so much disruption in my life.

Scam for winning lottery/prizes

National Magazine Exchange - Scam for winning lottery/prizes
Its a scam none of it is real my letter matches up to everyone elses who has received theirs in the mail as well! I *** up by giving them my address though. But I reported it and cancelled it. No winners should have to give out their debit or credit card for magazines. What type of business asks for money if your name popped up to win anything such a scam dont give none your info to these idiots!!
