Charlotte Observer scam - beware

Charlotte, NC

One day in September while shopping at the Ballantyne Earth Fare location, there was a guy at the entrance hawking the Observer. Maybe you have seen this elsewhere around town. He offered five weeks of the Sunday Observer for $15, and then offered a gift card to Earth Fare for $10. So, like a sucker, I signed up for essentially $5. Each month since then I have been billed (to my debit card)$15, and here's the kicker: never received one paper at home.

Beware of this scam. I can only hope that the Observer does the right thing and refunds my money and clamps down on the con artists they have selling their papers.
