I come inside my house with the mail in hand and look through it... I see something with my name and the name "Hall & Associates Attorney At Law".. so I figure it's about that idiot that ran into my car and ran off. So I open it.. and oh my god..
Does anyone know about that Columbia House Music/DVD club where they say things like "Get 5 DVDs for 49 cents each with FREE SHIPPING when you join us now!" Yeah well.. YEARS ago.. I was probably 12 or 13.. I found out my sister had joined it and she actually did get the free CDs, so I (being naiive) was like "okay! I wanna join too!" well.. I got the CDs with no avail.. then I saw that they have a movie branch too.. so I did that. Then they began to send movies without me ordering them and they CHARGE YOU FOR IT. Well in this case it was a VHS for Shrek and they were charging $23 for it so I told my mom because I didn't even HAVE $23 so she was like "I'll just send it back." but I don't think she ever did, in fact, I think it's in the basement right now.... so now then.. back to the letter.
I open it.. and it's from them or their attorney rather. Five years later... and they want $88.38 for ONE movie that I never ordered. Now they want this within 35 days of me getting this letter so they're serious.. but since then I've realized that it's a major scam, I did some research just now and I'm thankful that i didn't have a credit card when I was 12 or they'd have been draining my account since then. So this has gotten me a little shaken up.. considering I just got a letter from a LAWYER but I question the validity of it.. like that maybe THIS is a scam as well. I'd probably just pay it and get it over with if i wasn't afraid that they'd continue to scam me.
I have no idea what I'm going to do, I'm just gonna show it to my mom and see if she gets any ideas, but this whole thing is BS. I dunno how they could even LET a 12 year old subscribe to this! A contract signed by a minor isn't valid is it? (though I didn't sign ANYTHING, they probably will claim that I did)
