They hit in California too! are you saying I should not wait by the box for my magazine? Is there any thing we can do to get our money back?

Wow I definitely take very seriously any warning of companies "stiking" Eugene.

I'm ashamed to admit that I fell for this scam when we first moved to Eugene. Fortunately, we could afford to lose the little $ that was involved and I learned a valuable lesson. Unfortunately, I now trust NO ONE that comes to my door for ANY reason.

I'm just glad I can help people avoid losing all their cash to these people or worse they're kids. Some sites that say they hire teens or young adults to go door to door, take them out of town then ditch them in the middle of nowhere stranded. :/
