They sent my wife a letter saying that she owed them $445 3 years ago. She file bankruptcy 2 years and it was whipped out.
they said they she still owed it. I told them no that it was file under the bankruptcy and you did not respond and that the judge too care of it.
They crused at me, I cursed back at them. told them I was not going to pay a dime. that if you keep bothering me I will sue.

Why can't the government or the U.S. Postal service do something to stop these people from harassing we
senior citizens who are in limited incomes? If I lived anywhere near them, they just might get a visit from me! They say I ordered a magazine called THE AMERICAN PROSPECT. I never heard of it. Imagine what could happen to a credit score if they report this. These people are uncouth, unethical, and its a scam.

I just received a notice that I too owed $8.00 on Boating magazine which I have received for the past two years. Since when do you receive a magazine for two years without paying for it? Just a week ago I received a notice it time to renew my subscription to Boating which expires October 2010. Scam!

Just got a letter from these jerks. I used a token for a free "look-see" at Archaeology magazine with "no obligation", and after looking it over, decided not to get a subscription. Archaeology magazine sent me many "invoices" saying they're "sorry I don't sign up with them", "don't lose the subscription we're holding for you", blah, blah. I ignored them until I got the one from these NSA a@@holes. I used their automated menu to let them know I never received any mags and didn't order it in the first friggin' place, I'll see how this works out.

Okay! Just got off the phone with "Parker" at North Shore Agency (God bless the person who posted a number [web page 13 in this forum]for LIVE customer service personnel at NSA, which is 1-866-848-2121!)regarding the aforementioned Archaeology magazine "subscription", he didn't argue a bit when I told him that I'd never ordered a damn thing from them, and said he'd close out the mailings from their system, and that he'd contact Archaeology mag to tell them I was "disputing" the bill. I said "What bill, Parker? There has never been any subscription, so there can't be any bill." He didn't have much to say after that. We'll see!

I am reading all of these comments, and I am aggrivated. Why are companies like this allowed to continue? Like a lot of others like you, I received a notice, "Account Status: Delinquent", for "Kids Discover" magazine for my son who is also a minor. At least we are all smart enough NOT to pay it. What about the elderly in this country? Avid magazine readers and buyers, and they can't keep track of what they subscribe to. North Shore, YOU should be shamed. I am going to contact my local news about this. What I don't like is the wording..."Change this account status from delinquent to "paid in full"...Do it. DO IT? Ok, North Shore Agency, take your Bogus company and put it you know where...DO IT!

I got one of those letters from NSA trying to collect on a magazine subscription when on line accessed the account it showed paid! Did a print screen cleaned it then mailed a copy to them and told them my attorney has been notified. This is an example of what companies and others are forced to do to survive in this current environment created by our government. So we will be forced to be more observant of our financesÂ…

Had our own issue with Sprint, and a collection notice from North Shore Agency. Looked on their website, only to find that they're an "NCO Company". NCO is Nextel, which was purchased by Sprint?

Looks like you should reach out to Sprint about this.

I just received a bill from NSA for The Nation magazine. I never subscribed even though I did get a few copies in the mail. Sounds like this is a scam but how can the magazines let this go on?

My daughter received a collection notice from North Shore Agency for Outdoor magazine. Neither my daughter, wife or I authorized, solicited or requested the magazine. We never got any letter from Outdoor magazine. I don't know who "Outdoor" magazine is but I can tell you we will NEVER do business with them now or in the future just based on this scam. I have filed complaints with the AG's office and BBB. Take a look at the BBB and search North Shore Agency - WOW! not too good.

This thread started in 2007 for f's sake ... does ANYONE have any results or feedback? Did that unpaid $15 to NSA result in your credit being trashed and suddenly you cannot buy a home or get a job? Has a suspect magazine subscription spiraled you in to a life of crime to feed your family? C'mon, I want answers, solution, dirt, stories ... I think we have thouroughly collectively zeroed in on the fact that NSA sucks donkey nuts and they are lower than whale shit at the bottom of the ocean making their living going after seniors and minors collecting on suspect magazine subs for <$20. Now what about solutions?
Did a lawsuit ever get filed?

I received a collections letter from North Shore Agency for an outstand FedEx bill. I do not have account with FedEx. Nor have I sent ANYTHING in the mail in years. Scam? I think so.

I responded to their colection letter with a full set of interrogatories, Request for documents and demanded they sue me. I dont think I shall hear from them again.

It is a federal tort to threaten to sue and not follow up. You can go after them big time.
