Exclamation Beware of Scam

Hi guys,

I live in the Bar Area, but this is of course goes for everyone.

Recently someone knocked on the door. It was some guy selling magazines. He had all this documentation saying who he was and what it was:

"Platinum Sales, INC., Clearing Business Through United Family Circulation INC. "

He was saying that he was selling the magazines for his school and what not, and that the top sellers would go on a trip. We said okay and then picked some magazines which winded costing $100.00. Needless to say we canceled the check the next day. And today I went online looking for the company this is what I found.

there was a kid at school going around doing the same thing... but it wasn't with Platinum... I paid $40 for a 2 year subscription to a motorcycle magazine but they've been coming in every month and it's actually a good magazine!

Which mag is it?

We at first said sure to it. I didn't want to even bother, and the guy had yet to say how much it was going to cost. When I asked my wife if she wanted to get something she said sure. I was five minutes after he left that my wife was like I can't believe that we just paid 100 for two magazines. That we could get for cheaper if we whet straight though them. Need less to say we canceled the check.

Then I just wanted to double check the company found out all the info about it being a scam.

Yup good mag. My wife either got me a subscription to that or Sports Rider, and also get Road Racer X. That is my absolute favorite.
