I paid $35 for a two year subscription to Men's Health (plus the $15 non-refundable fee). I got the same hard-luck, pulling-myself-up story from a young Black guy (same as most people here) so I thought why not.

I gave it less than 50/50 chance that I would actually get the subscription but after two months my subscription started. Basically I paid someone $15 to start a subscription that I could do in a few minutes on the magazine's website.

Bottom line, don't do it. As a matter of fact, don't give any money to anyone soliciting for any charity especially over the phone. Just politely tell them no thanks and leave it at that.

A few reviewers were making this about race. In the recent news the biggest scam charity out of Florida was bringing in millions and not doing anything with the money other than paying itself and the telemarketers. Good people were being cheated so it doesn't matter what race the people are that are running the charity.

Do not buy magazines from this company - it is a scam! 2 nice young African-American girls came to our door saying they were homeless after the horrible Chicago storms and that this money would go towards their education. Once you give them money for "magazines" consider it gone! The phone number on the receipt and on their website is disconnected. It is an African-American based company using only African-American scammers. The African-American community needs to take care of this business because it is only giving their community a bad / worse reputation in the communities they scam in!

Ordered 3 magazines on 8/17/2010. Never received any of them so after 4 months I called. Dave gave some story about the order not being processed and said he would put it in again. I again called on 1/26/2011 and asked for a refund. Called again 2/17/2011, 3/2/2011, and 3/11/2011 and still have not received a refund and doubt I ever will. Dave is a great liar and will tell you just what you want to hear and then deliver absolutely nothing. Now the phone number for the business is not working either so there is no way to contact anybody. What a bunch of scam artists!

@ The ONE reviewer who called this company "Legit"...you're ridiculous.

Some poor sap of a kid came to my door in June. I ordered Preschool Friends for my son. He said it was $35 dollars. I produced the money...then he mentioned at $15 processing fee. I said, "You said it was $35 dollars. Nevermind, have a good night." As I attempted to close the door he stopped me and said he would wave the fee.

Four months later I had NO magazines. I called in to inquire about order and was told an order was placed for "Hannah Montana." I informed the person that I had a son and was not interested in receiving that material. I requested a refund and followed the call by sending a copy of my receipt along with a letter. I was told the refund would talk 6 to 8 weeks.

On December 31, 2009 I called and spoke with "Dave." I was told they were very backed up with refunds and that mine would be sent out by 1/15/11. That's tomorrow. I called today to follow up and guess what!!

Dave said my refund still wasn't processed and may be processed next week but he "couldn't make any promises." I told him he needed to send my money although. I also told him I believed he was lying and I was going to add to the long list of complaints that I was sure they had. So here I am and that's my sad story.

"Legit"...riiiiiiiiight.

If you're having trouble getting your money back, file a complaint with the BBB. I originally inquired about getting my refund and was told it would take 6-8 weeks. After looking at the reviews online, i thought i would never get it back. After filing my case with the BBB, I received a refund within 2 weeks. If these guys come knocking on your door, send them packing - it's a scam.

So two young men tried to sell us these "subscriptions", When I repeatedly kindly refused one got angry and verbally abusive. Despite my politeness he started saying he wanted my phone number and to come back later. We had to get in our car and drive away to get them to stop following us.

Not sure what kind of business this is but its pretty scary - don't open your door when these guys come knocking.

SCAM! URBANDS.com
A young man came to my door on 12/4/2009 - I am a teacher and he told me about his struggle to return to school etc. I then fell for the oldest trick in the book. Gave him $65 for a 2 year subscription to a magazine...this would help his organization supply books ect. to other students in his group. I called Midwest Clearing and spoke to Dave, once a month for an entire year. He told me to wait another month each time - he assured me he had spoken to the distributor and that my sub. was on its way - he even added 2 years to my sub. for the inconvenience. Finally I called the mag. publisher directly - no they have no record of me. SO I called Midwest back...they now say they that their distributor has my order and they can't understand why the publisher doesn't have it but will call me back in a few days... I won't hold my breath! I'll never see this mag. but I'll make a habit of calling them because I insist in being a pain in their ass!

okay, so i though it would be nice to help someone that gave me the same spill as what a few others have referenced (underprivileged, trying to prove something, selling f'n magazines.. how dumb am i?), though I have yet to have the check cashed from a couple days ago and will have it cancelled promptly tomorrow morning as soon as possible.. though a fellow neighbor who spoke with the "saleswomen" at length had their place broken into the following night... does anyone think this is related?

If I could give this company zero stars, I would.

This business is a scam. Although this review will probably only be read by people in my position, below is a recap my experience to date with Midwest.

~January - Ordered magazine subscription.
~May - Contacted Midwest to request refund. Midwest no longer offered the magazine that I requested. I'm glad it took a call from me 4 months later to figure this out.
~June - Mailed receipt & refund request to Midwest.
~August - Have not heard back. Called and requested a refund. Customer service informed me that it would take several weeks to "process the order". I doubt their throughput time is 4 months so I threatened to call the BBB if I had not received a refund by end of next week. Regardless of whether the check comes, this is still a scam.

Anyone posting a positive experience with this company is most likely an employee of Midwest.

The exact same thing happened to me that happened to all of you. A pair of teenagers, a male and a female--from North Carolina they claimed, something to do with getting cash for college, etc. I normally don't fall for this stuff but I was in the middle of feeding my daughter when they knocked (I thought it was Fed Ex) and, for some reason ended up writing a check for $102.00. I think part of the reason I fell for it was that my wife subscribes to the Chicago Tribune through a fund-raising program by a local high school. That program is legit. Midwest Clearing is not.

After they left, I had a bad feeling and Googled. I saw the BBB rating and read everyone's testimony here. I also read the back of my receipt and saw that the kids had violated several of the prohibitions listed there. I tried to call my bank but they were closed. I tried to call Midwest Clearing but got voice mail which re-stated their dubious refund policy. Then I got pissed. I got up, ran out the door, and down the street. One of my neighbors cried out, "Oh no! You didn't fall for that magazine scam did ya?"

I caught up with the kids three blocks away just as they were about to ring someone else's doorbell and said, "Give me my check". The kids balked, putting on hurt-feelings faces and asked why. I told them why and they said, "Oh those complaints are just from a few people who weren't satisfied with the service." I told him, "You can give me my check or I can call the police and let them mediate this discussion." So, he gave me my check back. As I was walking away, he asked if he could have the receipt back and I said, "no, you can't".

As I went home they stopped soliciting and followed me. After I went back inside they looked at my house for a few moments as they passed. That, didn't give me a good feeling so I called the cops and filed a report. The police said they'd send a car out looking for them. So, that's what happened to me.

It took 3 emails and a letter requesting my money back in order to receive my first magazine 9 months later. I was ready to file a small claim sue. This is a scam! Don't give up! Plus I got an extra year.

I am out $125

Too much time has passed to believe that it is just delayed. I was ripped off. The young man seemed sincere and said he was with "Urban Vision" but believe he was in on the rip off too. I had him write down his personal email address and he wrote AdilBowman@yhahoo.com yhahoo? ummm someone that uses email doesn't make that mistake in their own handwriting.

I've contacted Midwest Clearing only to get a voice mail machine and I have sent them complaint on line.

Bottom line... They are a SCAM and I would suggest you NEVER ORDER MAGAZINES from a door to door salesman.

On July 28, 2009, an employee of Midwest Clearing House, Inc. came to our home and solicited magazine subscription under the guise of helping ??inner city youth?? and collected $70.00 in cash as payment in full for 20 issues of Atlantic Monthly magazine, and did not deliver any issues.

The attached receipt shows the sale and stated that delivery of Atlantic Monthly magazine would commence in 120 days.

On Jan 18, 2010 I called Midwest Clearing House, Inc. in Hazel Crest, IL to inquire and at that time I was informed that an order entry for another magazine was entered and they would promptly refund the $ 70.00 that I paid on July 28, 2009. I was told that my refund check would be mailed ??in a few days? .

I called again on February 4, 2010; February 18, 2010; March 1, 2010; March 26, 2010; and again today on April 8, 2010, and each time I was informed my refund check would be mailed ??in a few days?.

It is difficult to separate the young man earnestly selling magazines door to door in 90 degree heat from the corporate entity Midwest Clearing. If I choose to believe this well spoken, polite young man who, judging from the length of his form, had clearly been working hard and successfully, then he has been trying to make the most of this opportunity that has come his way. Midwest Clearing, however, is most likely taking advantage of the situations of its salesmen as well as their customers.
Like most people, I have no need of additional magazines. Midwest has instructed its salespeople to inform the would be buyer that these can be donated to one of many worthy institutions. Whether these donations are made and whether the salesmen have insider information about the "donations" I will never know. What I do know is that the receipt they give out is not and specifically states that it is NOT a donation.
Clearly, the setup relies on the empathy of people for at least one of two things 1. The determination of the young salesperson to improve his poor lot in life; and/or 2. the value of donating magazines to institutions working with the underprivileged.
Either way it is clearly if not a scam then a corporation with questionable intent. At worst it actively involves the salespeople as "con artists" at best it misuses them. All of that work for a $1000.00 scholarship is an unseemly low level of pay.
Considering the fact that checks are immediately cashed I find myself fairly doubtful of honorable intentions and in favor of the April 1 suspension of the corporation left in operation for the indefinite future. I was called on today, April 7. Not a good sign is it?

The magazines I chose were ordered in Sept. 2009. Two of the
three have been sent at the beginning of the subscription year
time, Jan.2010. The third one according to the representative
answering the phone said it should be on its way. I read the back of the receipt and the salesperson did tell me that he had a past history and was with this team to learn good positive behaviors. He was in no way rude, but very well mannered, good eye to eye contact. I do hope that there team leaders are treating them well with this organization. This person only had positive comments to make about them. I did wonder how much walking they had to do and (it was very hot and dry) if they have any medical coverage. His first name was Undrake. His persona reminded me of bishop Jakes and not of one with any criminal content. God bless Undrake with success and establish him for his desire to do good with his days. I have all the magazines I need now for 2 yrs. I hope when they run out that there is a better variety on
the list.
I cannot say that I would trust or be interested in all sales
people, it depends upon the individual and whether or not I
choose to take an interest or risk to buy as all sales people are not the same.

Another customer "TAKEN" by this scam. My check was cashed immediately and 4 months later no magazines. SURPRISE! But the loser isn't me. And certainly not Midwest Clearing as they have my $101.00 and I guess are living high on all us idiots. But the loser is every legitimate person who comes to my door who will hear my story about why I can't support their cause because of Midwest Clearing. Inc.

Legit, not a scam.

I got exactly what I ordered (see photo). It was 6 months later, which is OK with me. I ordered a Vegetarian Times (2 yr) and Yoga Journal (3 yr) in May, they started arriving in November. I think most people who complain about this being a scam just don't have 6 months worth of patience. My receipt has the same information:

Midwest Clearing, Inc
3649 West 183rd Street

It's not a scam, it's slow since I assume these are people just doing the best they can and making best with what they have. Former drug addicts aren't the most reliable people in general, be patient. The woman who came to my door was the same as the other stories - a sob story about being on drugs. I grew up in a major New England city, so I'm pretty wise, and I gave her a grilling (and did my best Cal Lightman to boot). There were certain things that I knew that she knew and the way she answered I was positive it was not a lie. I checked online right in front of her and she saw the scam pages and was genuinely surprised. Since I knew she was telling the truth, I bought the magazine and told her that when I got my magazines, I'd post that she was legit on the sites that listed her as a scam, so here I am. If you want to check with me, my name is Michael Bushe, my email is "my first name"@"my last name".com (remove the quotes and fill it in). I wish the best to these folks, they are heroically overcoming all the odds against them through hard work and dedication. I wish you all the success in the world. To Tanisha - much love, fight the good fight, there's far more reward on the other end.

Legit, not a scam.

I got exactly what I ordered (see photo). It was 6 months later, which is OK with me. I ordered a Vegetarian Times (2 yr) and Yoga Journal (3 yr) in May, they started arriving in November. I think most people who complain about this being a scam just don't have 6 months worth of patience. My receipt has the same information:

Well I AM FOR ONE, A PERSON WHO RETAINED THE RECIEPT FOR MY 51.00 PURCHASE FOR WHICH I DID NOT RECIEVE MY MAGAZINES AND HAVE BEEN FIGHTING TO GET MY MONEY BACK FOR 2 MONTHS. I HAVE BEEN DEALING WITH DAVE AT MIDWEST CLEARING 708 206 2001. IM SURE THAT HE WOULD APPRECIATE HEARING ALL OF THE STORIES THAT ARE FROM THE PEOPLE THAT MIDWEST HAS TAKEN FROM. HE GETS A CALL FROM ME DAILY!

A scam of a company to have young people go from door-to door selling mags. Teaching our young people how to lie. I am out of $45.00 120 days later.

SCAM! Do not receive magazines. Impossible to get a refund. If you "donate" there is no proof the money is going anywhere but their pockets. Salespeople lie to make a sale. check BBB for other complaints.

A young man came to my door soliciting for magazine sales with part of the proceeds going to him directly and partly to the clearing house. We live in the Northwest.

He was well dressed and well spoken. My husband and I are cautious but we made a donation because we believe programs like this are good if they get young people back on track. The magazines will be donated to underprivileged kids in Chicago.

Thank you
