Reader’s Digest Canada rant chapter three – Our Canada

Lay off our seniors! Any kind of Elder abuse is BAD!On the phone to Reader’s Digest today – and this time they were under the questionable cape of Our Canada magazine.

Let’s look at the Bill shall we? Dated within days of my mom-in-laws passing.

“Dear Mrs. Mother-in-law,

A few months ago, you requested a subscription for Our Canada.
We sent you your first issue in good faith with the understanding that you would honor the invoice and pay it promptly.

We’ve kept our part of the bargain, but so far we have not received your payment.”

Jumping in now…
My Mother-in-law was in the hospital without a phone, radio or television for 4 months prior to her passing and she, in no way, requested a subscription to this shady Readers Digest front.

So. According to the above passage, Readers Digest lies.
Of course during the conversation the very friendly lady said that someone signed my mother-in-law up for the copy of Our Canada.

Let’s keep reading.

“I must ask that you pay the enclosed invoice immediately. If we do not receive payment within 15 days, we will turn your account over to our credit and collection department.”

Can you imagine a little old lady sitting in her apartment. Perhaps she is a tad forgetful. Perhaps she is on a fixed income. These letters and invoices can be scary for our old folks!
The RD invoice I hold in my hand is dripping with intimidation and disrespect for our beloved elderly folks.

Readers Digest. It’s senior-abuse, plain and simple. And it should stop!

My opinion: I feel that RD are weasels that need to be exposed for the abusers of our dear Canadian seniors.
Go on RD. Take me to the carpet on this. I dare you.

Shame on Reader’s Digest Canada – Shame, shame, triple shame.

And to my departed and beloved Mom-in-law, god bless her… At least she doesn’t have to deal with RD ever again.

Read this CBC Marketplace expose of Readers Digest’s questionable nonsense. Watch the video. It is shocking. Activities that are banned in the U.S. appear to be commonplace in Canada.
Shocker: The Canadian government subsidizes Readers Digest Canada to the tune of $2,000,000 a year in postal tariff reductions – reduced postage… so they can scam and harass your parents and grand-parents.
