Being charged 17.88 on my Debit card

I ordered a year ago from Fragrancenet.com and was awarded a free subscription to Cosmopolitan Magazine as a bonus. However I just received a renewal for Cosmo magazine with a charge of 17.88. They, according to my bank, charged the account 1 year ago which I did not pickup. When I preceded to cancel on line it stated it was a complimentary subscription. Not so !! Charged in 2016 and 2018. 17.88. This is a scam and should be directed to the proper authorities which I plan to pursue. It will cost me $30.00 to stop payment.

I called Rolling Stone Magazine today because I have been getting mags not subscribed to.They told me when tickets were ordered through Ticket Network they put me down for a free subscription. I do not read,never did read Rolling Stone. They told me to get in touch with M2 media group.. No help.. they dont even respond on the phone.
I would like not to receive them any further. I do not even open them.. I am way passed the interest matter in the magazine.

M2 Media Group - scam solution?

Just as many of the previous posters, I started receiving unsolicited copies of People a few weeks ago. Rather than go into M2's rats nest of computer and voice menus, I opted for the old snail mail method - I wrote "return to sender" and "unsolicited" on two copies and dropped them off at the Post Office. Yesterday, I received an email from TIME, INC customer service:

"The Post Office recently notified us that mail sent to you at the address below is "undeliverable".
Regrettably, we will need to suspend delivery of your PEOPLE subscription until you verify your address."

Could it really be that easy to block these scams? We'll see, but I now have proof that I tried to stop the subscription if they try to bill me at a future date.

M2 Media Group

I am receiving a People Magazine Subscription that I did not subscribe to. I do not want it at all and refuse to pay for a subscription. How the hell do they get authorization to even send me this??

Unauthorized Subscription

I have been receiving the Time Magazine and I do not subscribe to any magazine. I contacted them and was informed that it was done through Media Group. I never authorized nor requested service. I truly do not want to keep receiving it. I would like for your company to stop sending this and cancel any sunscription done without my authorization.

From reading other complaints it appears that this resulted from my doing business with Fragrance.com. That will never happen again. I will not do any further business with that company ever.

unauthorized mag subscription

frangrancenet.com could be the culpri as I see other complaints when they ordered from them.
Called Rolling Stone Mag and they were very nice. Gave me M2 Media phone #
That is a bunch of voice mails never leading to real customer service..
So used their web to list my complaint.
ThenI found the website for complaint.com. I used the subscrition cancelling and they were right on showing the Rolling stone Mag. BTW I guess I am going to get Vogue,too, so I cancelled that one also. Where is the law when you need them LOL
Hope all this works, cause all this has cost me a total of 2 hrs and I am not 100% sure it is done with.

unwanted magazine subscription

Received swimsuit issue and now March issue of Sports Illustrated magazine - unsolicited. Called Sports Illustrated. Person said I was signed up by M2Media Group. This person said Sports Illustrated could suspend my 'subscription' delivery for 6 months but it will be re-instated after that. Person gave me "www.cancelmag.com". She said this is the only way to cancel it.

Went to "www.cancelmag.com". Entered the info requested - the site said ". . . You are receiving the magazine as a result of recently making an online purchase with either TicketNetwork.com or TicketLiquidator.com. The magazine was included as a bonus offer with your purchase. . . there are no hidden costs, further obligations, or automatic renewals associated with your subscription. Your credit card information was not passed to us. Would you like to continue to enjoy your magazine?"

I entered "No" to this question and "Yes" to the "Are you sure" follow-up question.

Unwanted Magazine

I ordered from Shoebuy.com last summer. Then copies of Time started mysteriously appearing in the mail. After wasting a bunch of time trying to find out why,I found it was a "bonus " for my purchase. It's next to impossible to get this canceled,the phone for M2 is just a bunch of loops without a live operator. This is totally underhanded and I advised Shoebuy I'd never order from then again. I also advised my credit card company that if a renewal charge from M2 or Time ever comes through that it is to be treated as a fraudulent charge and the proper authority should be notified at once.

M2 Media Group

Magazines I did NOT subscribe to keep showing up at my door, cluttering my mailbox. 9 of them so far ( Us Weekly, Shape, Cosmopolitan, Better Homes and Gardens, Family Circle, Woman's Day, Family Fun, and Elle). Just went to a couple of the websites for the magazines to try and stop them, and received this message on several: " This subscription was purchased through M2 MEDIA GROUP". I NEVER ONCE subscribed to ANY of these magazines! The only plus side is, as far as I know, I am not being charged for any. But I don't like this trash cluttering up my mailbox all the time.

I orderer Pearl white teeth whitening sample kit

After ordering the pearl white teeth whitening trial kit they wanted to charge me on a monthly full kit so I called and cancelled my order and told them that I was only ordering the trial. I cancelled because I did not like the product. In the process of this order I was also ask to speak to a magazine company which told them I do not want there magazine's and I would like to cancel this and not be billed to my account cc. They sent me an email stating that my order was cancelled, when I did not order any magazine, and there would be no charge to my cc. I do not like surprise charges on my cc account, yet I have been receiving numerous magazine's in the mail that I did not order and I do not want.... whoever is sending these magazines is filling the land field because all I do with them is put them in the recycle bin and hope that it will stop ASAP. If you can help it will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

M2 Media Group - Unauthorized Subscription

I did did not order Instyle magazine. I certainly hope I am not being charged for it. I expect delivery to cease immediately and any money due me refunded ASAP. From reading other complaints above, it may be due to a purchase from fragrancenet.com. They will never get business from me again. Ever. This is dishonest business, a waste of my time, and unethical.

MAGAZINES I DIDN'T SUBSCRIBE & DON'T WANT

For some unknown reason I started receiving magazines several different companies that I did not subscribe to nor did I order nor do I want. Please take me off the mailing list of any magazines that you are sending. I have received NFL, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, Good Housekeeping & Woman's Day. There is only one magazine that I subscribe to that is Family Tree Maker and that is the only magazine I want! What does it take for you to get me off this mailing list of all these magazines I have no desire nor the patience to read any of these magazines! In the past I have received magazines from HGTV that I did not order and I continue to get a bill saying to pay up, I did not order this magazine either so please stop sending bills & magazines immediately. This is such a waste of paper to send out magazines that people do not want are you not concerned about the environment.
Sincerely,
Mrs. Sandra Evans

Sports Illustrated Subscription I did not order

I started receiving a subscription to Sports Illustrated. I called the magazine and they said the subscription is a 1 year subscription that was placed by M2 Media Group. The magazine cannot cancel the subscription. They gave me the phone number for M2 Media Group 877-202-9589. When I call the number, I get a recorded message "Thank you for calling Blue Dolphin Media Group, our normal business hours are Monday though Friday from 8 to 5. Please hang up and call back during normal business hours." I looked up M2 Media Group online and it turns out they bought Blue Dolphin Media. I found a website for M2 Media Group and filled out the form to request them to cancel a magazine subscription.

M2 Media Group and shoebuy.com

I began receiving Time magazine in the mail so I contacted Time since I did not sign up for the subscription. They said the subscription was set up through M2 Media Group and they gave me the phone number to contact them. They suspended delivery of the magazine in the meantime. I contacted M2 Media and after about 2-3 minutes on hold, I talked with a customer service rep who told me that it was a year gift subscription without automatic renewal from shoebuy.com. I haven't even made a purchase from shoebuy.com in a year or so. Anyway, I canceled the subscription immediately and don't expect to be billed for it. This seems like an unethical practice on shoebuy.com's part and I will be contacting them to let them know what I think about it.

unwwanted magazines

I have suddenly started receiving Sports Illustrated, are you kidding me?? I have asked for it and not sure how it has been sent to me.
And who paid for this, is this something I have been charged for? Plus wasting my time trying to figure this out is just a pain in the ass.

Unauthorized subscription

I have been getting unwanted and unordered magazine called Inc. I called them and they said M2 media group placed the order said they could only put a suspend on the order and to contact your group to cancel. I did that. I don't expect to see anymore unordered magazines in my mail. Some how this seems very illegal. I will be checking into that.
