Here’s what happened:
A phone call woke me up this morning.In my state of drowsiness,someone told me I was an Amex preferred customer and that they entered me into sweepstakes to win so and so.They wanted to sell me magazines,GREAT OFFER,$3.79/week,7 magazines,good magazines.But the lady was only 2 weeks into the job,didn’t know how to answer some questions I threw at her.
Some guy calls me later,explains it in more detail.Bottom line $65.69 per month for 12 months.I get 7 magazines a month,every month for 4 yrs.Now I accepted reluctantly.They also giving some nice ass watch.Ok.
I usually never accept these.I gave reasons.They convinced me.FRIGGIN STUPID ME.They needed credit card # so I can be billed.I gave it to them!Mistake!I asked for a # I could reach them at.He gave a toll-free one to me.
After putting down the phone,I realized I didn't want $65.69 per month.It's too much.I am not prepared to commit 4 yrs.So I called the #.No one picks up.I get worried.
In the end,after speaking to my dad,I cancelled my credit card,just in case they wanna bill me.I’m STILL trying to call that # up to tell them I didn’t want it,and it would be useless for them to try and bill me anyway,since the card has been cancelled on the same day.
Tell me I’m smart.YEAH RIGHT.I’m such a fool at times.I cannot believe I woke up like a #### idiot.I usually decline all these,just today,I declined but in the end gave in.What a fool.
BTW,assuming I can’t reach this “toll free phone number” they gave me,can I get bad credit for this?I don’t want to have bad credit history,cuz i cancelled the card.They haven’t sent me anything,it’ll be a while before they do.I don’t want bad credit.If I tell the credit card company that I suspected it was a scam because of unanswered business phone,will it be ok?
Sorry guys,I know u don’t hear of such foolishness often.But I’ll be wiser.
