But for now, the resolution rate doesn't show successful interaction with customers. We advise reviewers to be careful when communicating with North Shore Agency and be ready for the chance your problem might not get a response. It's also good to start looking for other solutions if your issues aren't fixed as you want.

Magazine subscription collection

I received a collection letter for a magazine I no longer subscribed to and at the time no longer received. It was for $4.42 so I just paid it since I didn't want my CC score to tank for a mere 5 dollars. Fast forward I start receiving Midwest game and fish magazine again... Every month I have gone online and canceled that subscription and was told I would get a refund... 4 months and 4 magazines delivered, and 4 more times canceling online. Now I decide to contact game and fish directly. They canceled it but I was subscribed through THEM, them being North Shore Agency. And I would have to contact them for a refund. They are the subscribing entity? The collection agency? This company is a scam or something.

Desired outcome: Refund of my original payment to them as it wasn't a collection for something already acquired by myself. It was more like a threat to continue a magazineni no longer wanted NOR RENEWED

Meaningful beauty scam (bill for $239.43)

I bought my wife a product from Meaningful Beauty as a gift, come to find out they immediately put you on a reoccurring order basis which you cannot see. They then sent me a rather large box of Beauty Creams etc which "I did not order" I received an invoice in the mail and returned the product via USPS. They have now turned it over for collection to North Shore Agency. The website for payment does not exist...www.nsapay.com How in the hell can you make a payment. Does this company even exist?

Desired outcome: I would like to have the transaction cancelled and not pay.

Smileactives

A year ago I cancelled a subscription to Smileactives. I never recieved the product yet was charged $88 for it. NSA has been calling me at my place of work several times a day. I have told them to stop and send me a bill. When I got the bill, they told me to go to their website to pay it. The website said "Non Functioning". These people are scam artists. Either that, or that are unbelievably stupid. If I can't pay online, they are not getting the money for a product I never received.

Desired outcome: Stop harrassing me! Stop calling my place of work! Leave me alone!

Is North Shore Agency Legit?

North Shore Agency earns a trustworthiness rating of 91%

Highly recommended, but caution will not hurt.

Our conclusion: After a detailed review, ComplaintsBoard finds North Shore Agency to be a trustworthy company. Although there's a 19% resolution rate for customer complaints, which deserves attention, North Shore Agency is known for their high standards and safety. If you're thinking about dealing with North Shore Agency, it's wise to check how they handle complaints.

We found clear and detailed contact information for North Shore Agency. The company provides a physical address, 3 phone numbers, and email, as well as social media account. This demonstrates a commitment to customer service and transparency, which is a positive sign for building trust with customers.

The age of North Shore Agency's domain suggests that they have had sufficient time to establish a reputation as a reliable source of information and services. This can provide reassurance to potential customers seeking quality products or services.

Northshoreagency.com has a valid SSL certificate, which indicates that the website is secure and trustworthy. Look for the padlock icon in the browser and the "https" prefix in the URL to confirm that the website is using SSL.

Northshoreagency.com has been deemed safe to visit, as it is protected by a cloud-based cybersecurity solution that uses the Domain Name System (DNS) to help protect networks from online threats.

However ComplaintsBoard has detected that:

  • While North Shore Agency has a high level of trust, our investigation has revealed that the company's complaint resolution process is inadequate and ineffective. As a result, only 19% of 71 complaints are resolved. The support team may have poor customer service skills, lack of training, or not be well-equipped to handle customer complaints.
  • Northshoreagency.com has relatively low traffic compared to other websites, it could be due to a niche focus, but could also indicate a potential lack of traffic and popularity. The northshoreagency.com may offer a niche product or service that is only of interest to a smaller audience.
  • North Shore Agency protects their ownership data, a common and legal practice. However, from our perspective, this lack of transparency can impede trust and accountability, which are essential for establishing a credible and respected business entity.
  • If you purchased a website from North Shore Agency that is currently for sale, and you did not receive what you paid for, you may be a victim of a scam. To try and get your money back, you can try contacting the seller, filing a dispute with the payment platform, or reporting the seller to the relevant authorities.

Subscription to Gun Test

I accepted a free offer from Gun Test to try them out. They seemed pretty good on the paper. But…

I did not like the format, and did not subscribe to them.

Now they bill me $20 ? They must be hungry for green.

I call that a complete fraud. I’m not going to pay for this.

So people, if you get any offer for Gun Test, pass. You’ll make yourself a big favor.

Desired outcome: Cancel that supposed debt

Scam, fake magazine bill

I am a 43 year old, a disabled Veteran, and a Psy. D. Recently I received a Debt collectors letter from North Shore Agency for the magazine Harper's Magazine for $11.97 on 2021NOV15. I did not order this magazine, therefore I do not owe any money for any issues as I never ordered the magazine. Please delete my account, and refrain from scamming Military Veterans. Reading these posts that include previous complaints, informs me that your agency needs to be reported to the Defense Department and BBB, of which I am doing at this point.

Acc# [protected] Creditor

Acc# [protected] Yours

Desired outcome: Asking as a resolution that your agency cancels mydebt and stopsending debt collection letters to active, reserve, and veterans of our military for services not owed. We defend your freedom. Stevenson-Fleet is my last name. Thank you

PCH

I have received 5 different notice from NSA stating they were collections for PCH. I have paid everyone of them and they have cleared my bank, so I called PCH cause they got very late payment from them and they said they had only received 1 payment from back in July and the last one I sent cleared 11/12/21. PCH gave me a number to call NSA and its automated and they need their acct number or the case number. I don't have neither cause I sent the top part of the notice back to them with payment. The other number PCH gave me was NSA that did health and life insurance. So where do I go now. I have proof the checks were cashed and cleared my bank.

Desired outcome: For NSA to let go of the money and PCH get it get me off their hot sit

Collection for book I didn't order.

Book came in mail - didn't order in first place. Sent back... post office suggested I take pics of return postage. I will attach to this complaint. I have tried repeatedly to contact but auto service would not let me get through to a live person. I'm filing for my Uncle who is 92 years old. If they don't stop harassing him I will get lawyer. He's been so stressed over not being able to take care of this himself.

Desired outcome: Stop with harassment! No debt owed.

your collection letter is so poor you don't state what this is for

I've called 3 times, hit the button for an "agent" to call me back and that NEVER happened. I've spent 50 minutes holding 2 different days and still nobody answers the phone. And you're a debt collection agency?

This "business" needs to be put out of business. They harass people and you cannot even find out what it is in reference to or contact anyone to talk to.

Invoices Received

I just received 5 invoices from North Shore Agency explaining I owed money to Publisher's Clearing House. No doubt I do as I have just been released from the hospital after some brain surgery.

They provided their website address so that I could pay on-line. This page required a number that was on the letter and followed EXT and ID. No such numbers were anywhere on any of the invoices.

I have been trying to call then for 2 days and all I get is a message that all of their Operators are busy and the next available Operator will help me. I waited more than one hour today, but eventually took advantage of having calling me back. No call yet and it has been hours.

The Publisher's Clearing House website if of no use in finding out how to pay either.

Very frustrated.

If this is valid how do I find out?

Desired outcome: To resolve these invoices.

Collection Agency

Today, I received a letter from the above-named company with a return address of P.O. Box 150, Claysburg, PA 16625.
They are trying to collect what they refer to as a past-due subscription to "READERS DIGEST". in the amount of $27.70.

I called the Readers Digest subscription department and verified that My subscription is "PAID" through May, 2023.

I attempted to phone the North Shore Agency, at [protected]; but after reaching them, they disconnected, before I could speak with anyone.

I'm assuming this to be a SCAM and I'm surprise3d that they would stoop so low as to try to collect from as many subscribers as possible and hope they get a few of them to pay up

Desired outcome: Make the North Shore Agency pay me for my time and trouble of checking this out. I think $50.00 would be fair along with a letter of apology.

I DO NOT OWE THIS and WILL NOT be paying it. This is unethical behavior and nothing more than harassment.

They are harassing me with threatening letters and phone calls after I have repeatedly asked them to stop. I do not owe the money to Westmore Beauty. End of story.
I did have a previous account with Westmore Beauty and supposedly it was resolved after several emails and attempts to try and reconcile. The products were sent to me after I requested several times for them to stop. I finally was able to stop the auto shipment of the product but the bill continued.

Desired outcome: To stop the harassment for a debt that I DO NOT OWE!!
