Last week I received a copy of Entertainment magazine in the mail. It had a subscription label with my husband's name and our address. Hmmm, I have no interest and didn't subscribe so I ask Steve and he says no........
A couple days later I get a card that reads:
We wanted to drop you this note to let you know that if you haven't already received your first FREE Trial Issue of ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY, you'll be getting it very soon. And remember, since you are a SAM GOODY Customer, you'll be getting 7 more as part of our exclusive FREE Tial Offer -- two full months of America's leading entertainment magazine!
If, after receiving your two trial months, you like our magazine and want to keep receiving it, do nothing. When your 8 FREE Tial Issues run out, we'll charge your credit card just $19.95. You'll get 12 more issues, that's 20 issues in all, at a total savings of 66% OFF the cover price.
Well, the magazine is total crap. Not the issue anyway. The issue is, my husband bought my six year old son a game for his game boy at Sam Goody last month. Apparently he paid for it with a credit card and they not only gave Entertainment Weekly our name and address but the credit card number as well. If I don't want my credit card charged, which I don't, I have to go to the web address they listed to cancel the charge.
I am so MAD! I will NOT be shopping at Sam Goody anymore. Has anyone else had this happen? I'm just shocked that a store can sell my credit card number like this.
