I feel like NME company harasses you into buying their products once you told them you are not intrested in buy a magazine they contiue asking about purchasing a product and bringing their supervisor on the phone. It reads on the contest NO PURCHASE NECESSARY. Yet they contiue to harass you until you do buy which I just hung up.

I am fortunate not to get any calls, but I just recently got a notice that they are trying to reach me, yeah right! I answered questions once already, and was very careful not to give out too much information. Nowadays, too much information can be dangerous! No thanks!

NME Prize Disbursement is a scam, nothing more. They offer products at a higher price than in stores or on newstands. All the while "plugging" a huge cash prize awaiting "down the road"!?

I got the letter finally, and then read all the fine print. I found out that the contest is completed in 2010, yeah!!! And then there is an early bird prize that will be awarded in 2008 in December. We will see if they are for real in 12 months, and if they aren't they are going to get a nice little letter from my attorney....ha ha ha, what can you do,,,

I made the mistake of calling them tonight and I agree that it is a scam. They asked me if I still had a mastercard, visa, discover card or American Express card which got me worried. The only info I gave was my first name. They knew my phone # and address.They were real pushy and wouldn't take no for an answer when I said I really didn't want any more magazines. Do not even call

Has anyone seen the Futurama movie Bender's Big Score? This is exactly like what's in that movie. It's all fake, just to get your money, and by dialing that number you might as well write your will to them.

I'm glad I did a search online and came across this site. Thank you to all those who posted comments. I was very skeptical, but I wanted to double check. As the saying goes, " If it's to good to be true, then it's probably not true". Sorry if I quoted incorrectly.

Glad I read this before calling them; got one of those "too good to be true" letters also but checked the internet first!
I'm not even going to bother; their letter is now in the "square file"!

I just called them and they were pushy and wanted that credit card number badly. I wouldn't give it to them. The magazine prices were in fact not bad. Will I really get the subscriptions at $1.29 a week for 3 major brands?
