PC Advisor Offer

  dogbreath1 19:15 28 Feb 2005

I've just received a telephone call from PC Advisor pushing a promotion. Three magazines for £1 followed by quarterly subsciption by DD at £9.99p. The number given was 01458 271272 x 6312 (Rhiannon!!!). Has anyone else experienced this... is it genuine? I am reluctant to give a/c no. and sort code over the phone when the initial contact was made by the seller.

Hi dogbreath1 i would be as reluctant as you about giving your personal detials over the phone,
Why dont you mail FE and ask his advice on what action to take. Regards Mammak

Thanks mammak and VoG™. Having read all of the replies, I'm still not convinced of the legitamacy of the offer so I've emailed the FE. If I had made first approach, then fine. But when someone calls with the opening 'we note that you are a subscriber to PC Advisor Forum...', it's more of a worry.

P.S. Can anyone lend me a quid!

The FE believes the offer to be genuine and has emailed the department concerned to make them aware of our concerns. So, if you've not had the offer yet, you might like to pre-empt Rhiannon's call by ringing the above number to kindly accept her super offer!

I had the same offer from a kid called Sean this afternoon.

They've got it right this time. I've now been emailed complete with PC Advisor logo etc. Have ordered. Not bad, three issues for £1 (total) then quarterly dd of £9.99 per three issues.

i already have a subscription. can i still get this offer? i.e. if i apply for this, will it override my old subscription?

I have had the offer this evening, but I still have 2 deliveries outstanding on my last subscription, so do these accumulate or am I paying £1 for one issue ?
