Default Mystic Stamp Company *******s!

I am not currently nor have I ever collected stamps
yet the "Mystic Stamp Company" is sending me packages
of stamps telling me to pay or send them back.
Is this place a big scam company or what?
I'm pretty ****ed off at them right now. I'm reporting
them to the BBB right now. Is this place know for this
type of behavior?


AE gelat is correct you can keep them here is a gov page that

says so
https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/i...itedFraud.aspx

Yes, Mystic is know for these tactics and far, far higher prices than
'market' as well. Somewhere they got your address, kid or grandkid?

Report them to the Postal Inspectors as well. If you get any more
packets [unlikely!] SEND them to the Postal Inspectors with copies of
their demands. You do NOT have to pay postage, just put them into an
envelope and take to your post office, addressed "Postal Inspector"

There is another possibility:
If you ask for their complete, full-color catalog, they'll send it to
you for free under the condition that you partake in their "approval"
program. It works as you described it; every month they will send you
stamps and you must either return them or pay for them. These are not
considered unsolicited, as you "agreed" to this condition when asking
for the catalog. Sometimes they'll do this with your initial purchase;
pay close attention to all the fine print accompanying your order.

I ordered the full color catalog, does that mean they are going to send me stamps demanding that I pay for them? Is there anyway to end this madness?
I really just wanted the friggin catalog. What do you guys recommend be the best course of action?

Write them stating you do not want Approvals.

When he first one comes anyway, and it will, enclose UNOPENED into
another envelope along with a letter stating that you do not want any
"Approvals", and that any further mail will be considered a gift.

When the second comes, and it will, write "REFUSED" across it and give
to agent at PO.

Do it to the THIRD.

Record the dates you did this.

After that -=technically=- they are giving them to you, unless they
ask for them back AND provide return envelopes and postage.

In short, LOTS OF LUCK! You're in for six months to a year of 'fun'!

Good Morning -

My name is Jessica and I work at Mystic Stamp Company. I saw your post here and wanted to let you know you may receive a small selection of stamps to review with your Free Catalog.

If you do not want any of those stamps, simply return them in the postage-paid envelope we provide with your Free Catalog offer. Also, if you email me your name and address I will close your account. My email address is .

Regards,
Jessica

If I call them, and tell them that I dont want their stamps and approval program, will that do anything?

Yeah, they'll have a good laugh.

Send the NEXT packet, and there will be a 'next' one, -=unopened=- to
the Postal Inspectors with a WRITTEN statement that you did not
request any Approvals, that you have returned two such unauthorized
mailings and demanded them to stop.

You do not need postage to send the packet and your letter to the
Postal Inspectors.

Check current laws, but let your conscience be the real guide.

I have dealt with Mystic often. Yes, their prices are inflated from what the actual value is, but when I have bought older/rarer stamps from them I have almost always got very nice specimens, either equal to or above the quality I expected. I am always left with high confidence that I am getting what I ordered. Yes, their marketing can be annoyingly aggressive, but what they send out is the real McCoy. True, if you receive anything unsolicited in the mail you are under no obligation by law to pay. Keep what you got and tell them to stop and they will. They are fully aware of the law and are not in business to give things away, but there are enough morons out there who dutifully send them money that ghey find this practice profitable in the long run. Whatever they lose they simply write off, yet if you are a serious collector and have half a brain you can trust them.
