Magazine scam is making the rounds again

They’re charming, personable, and respectful. But what they’re peddling is a lie.

Once again, solicitors are making rounds through town selling phony magazine subscriptions. Wharton police said it’s a familiar ploy — the same one in fact that earlier this year landed an East Bernard man behind bars.

    Scammers are everywhere that's why being cautious of their bogus act is very important to spare yourself from being their next victim. There are a lot of companies out there pitching a way to make some quick cash by selling their products, which is called “multi-level marketing.” A lot of people sign up for it every year, but one should be vary wary before taking the plunge, as it's easy to get ripped off doing it.
