Tampa, Florida
Not resolved

i used to be on a mag crew as they call them....the whole point of the crew was to do exactly what these complaints said and that is to steal the money from polite helpful people that didnt need to be messed over...i realized how bad things really were when these kids in my crew were gettin beaten and left at bus stops with no money...i had to lie to get them to send me home saying that someone had died in my family just to go home...i never wanted to hurt or steal from anyone and as soon as i got the picture that these mag crews are rip offs i got out of there...this is not a good oppurtunity for kids and above all its a horrible condition to subject kids too...if anyone can help do something about it then dont buy magizines...they wont ever come to u and there will be no getting money back to u...

Beth- you did scam.You came to my house and I gave you money and never received a *** thing.

I will find you and you're "crew". End of story.

You all will pay..And it will be alot more than what I gave.

Sister mourning...

All of you who are going on and on about how great it is to work "on crew" - have you thought at all about what is going to happen to your lives once you're done?My brother spent years on crew, and at the time thought he loved what he did.

During those years he was arrested and ticketed for solicitation numerous times, and every time the manager would bail him out and they'd move on to the next city. Guess what? That stuff doesn't go away! Fast forward a few years and my brother was hooked on drugs (which he was given while on crew), had a record a mile long, outstanding warrants in numerous states, couldn't get a drivers license in his own state, and had the IRS after him for tens of thousands of dollars.

Guess what? Did your managers tell you that they hire you as "independent contractors" and you are responsible for filing your own taxes as such? Do they tell you that even though you are hired as independent contractors, THEY still claim the expenses you should be able to claim as an independent contractor?

My brother hanged himself in his bedroom and died at the ripe old age of 27, his life in shambles because of the time he spent "on crew." The day he went on crew was the first day of the end of his life.Please think ahead to what your life will be like once you are out before it is too late to turn things around.

I forgot to say in my last post, if you have any questions or concerns about the magazine crew, or if you were on either of the crews I was on please e-mail me:


Cliff Kelsey, Crews 076 & 074

I was on a mag crew myself, well two, 076 and 074. It seemed legit at first and a fun way to travel the U.S. but I was wrong in the end. My first door was hard but it boosted my self esteem (only thing that the job..dont even want to call it one cause its not legit...but the only thing it helped with. I enjoyed it at first but the momment I found out it was a scam I stopped and refused to "speal" people at the door, instead I told them the truth.

Being back in my hometown Spokane, WA. now, and free from being on a magazine crew I have seen and talked with several mag. crews, with one stopping and trying to get me to join there crew since the guy was in the process of training someone else, instead of telling him yes, I laid down the facts and truth about the magazine crews with the guy he was training that day, later that night I heard on the news that the guy quit due to an ex magazine sales person telling him the facts,..I didnt want to see another person get ditched in an unknown territory like I almost did when we were down in Portland, OR.

So all I got to say is this is one scam that I will not go near again in my life, plus I got a fiance and a daughter to think about instead of ruining other peoples lives through a scam.
