I signed up for a credit card at Bealls Department Store in Decatur, TX in September 2014. At that time, they asked if I would like to also sign up for 3 FREE magazines at that time. I said sure – for free – why not. Well the magazines kept coming which I just threw away and wondered when they would stop. Come to find out they have been billing me for these magazines on my Bealls credit card all of this time. So far I have incurred $343.50. I had blindly just kept paying my credit card without realizing I was getting billed for these magazines. On my last bill, it was obvious when there was an additional $127.50 in charges and I knew I didn’t spend that much at Bealls. I called and complained to Bealls and they managed to cancel the magazines and credited back $105.38 of those charges (after saying they would credit in full). I have never felt so ripped off and deceived in my life. I have tried to contact Synapse Ret Ventures to receive my money back to no avail. Bealls have washed their hands of this and said I must contact Synapse. What a scam. I want my remaining $238.12 that they have billed me back! I am deeply disappointed in Bealls that they would be part of this scam and will no longer shop at Bealls.
