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!!!! 30b4287

Just want to keep everyone on targe as to the National Magazine Exchange located they said in Clearwater, Florida.. I received the "sweepstakes" letter, now it's saying $1.100,000. Stupidly I called them today--and yes, they are pushing you into "Free" magazines-- then they transfer to another person there who tells you that you will be paying for 5 (five)magazines--every week! They don't listen to your "No" but they keep talking as if you never said it. Also, they said they are sending me TWO watches and something about a $250 Walmart card". I refused it all but they never acknowledged (heard) my "NO". I called my credit card company and was told to call WHEN or IF I get any charges from this company. At that time MY CREDIT CARD COMPANY will remove any such charges and ALSO at that time--I INTEND TO MAKE SURE THAT THIS COMPANY IS BLOCKED ON MY CREDIT CARD ACCOUNT!!

I've been working here for almost 2 months. It sucks because *** call in and get pissed when we offer the magazines. News flash gotta make money somehow!! Yes you are entered the sweepstakes th moment you confirm your id number and name. That is the law. But don't get pissed about the mag pitch because we have a 4 step process we are required to follow per company policy or get fired. It's really good money and beats being on unemployment after my last job let me go because they could no longer afford me.

One of our payment plans is fully commission based but there is another that gives us a little more than min wage depending on how you do in sales and leads. We get the greater of the two.

The calls to my cell phone came at all hours, I asked them to stop... and it continued. Now I have a letter that I won the sweepstake...$36,666.67 payable for 30 years or immediate lump sum of $550,000.00

I wanted to know if it was a scam... and so it is according to all the posting on the internet.

Once the agent says " ok your entry is complete and registered" you are entered into the sweepstakes. At that point you do have a choice of listening to and ordering magazines or just hang up!

I have a friend who works for this company.FYI, you get entered into the sweepstakes before the mags are even pitched.when they confirm your phone number and address they enter and register you then it goes into the mags shortly after that. The employees have a process they have to follow,there is no purchase required but theres steps these employees HAVE to follow,they're not trying to harass you,they could care less if you purchase mags,they get paid an hrly wage not commission,its the ppl taking your cc info that gets a commission.they're not morons they are people making an honest living,not like the idiots that call everyday that won't get off their *** to get jobs.lmao.a smart person would just hang up if there not interested,its the idiots who sit there and *** n complain about it but sit through the whole pitch that gets me.I don't know how my friend could work there.I hear horror story's about the people who call in there.the employees should make more money than they do for dealing with the idiots. If I was trying to win a million bucks from someone I would listen to what they had to say whether I like it or not,why should they give you money,when you act like an *** to the employees.I wouldn't give anyone money who was rude on a recorded conversation.just saying.

Received letter today. I thought it was a scam and checked my computer and it led me to here. Thank you for saving me the time and effort.

This happened to me too today. I got the letter with no big heading saying what the company was; that was strike one to me. Then it was just sketchy receiving it in the first place. Also, I've never even heard of these people. So, I jumped on Google to check it out. Not that I am dumb enough to believe it, but I'm glad I educated myself on it. Some people are just too *** up to earn HONEST money these days... :upset

I have been returning their mails, because the woman persuaded and compelled to purchase. She was impudent.

If you work at NME then why are you keeping up with a site that is talking about it being a scam? I think it's kinda sketchy that you keep tabs on a page that called your magazine out :grin

No scam. No need to buy magazines. No sweepstakes can exist without an offer unless it charges for the entry. This one doesn't charge for an entry.
