3/30/2021 RDA*COUNTRY BOOKS ($27.86) This appears to be a duplicate Debit Card charge on hold for a charge that cleared my bank account on 3/14/2021. I did not make a second charge to the same place.

Danny Moe on April 02, 2021

The original charge was for a Cast Iron Cook Book, charge cleared the bank on March 14, 2021. Now on April 01, 2021, the charge showed up as pending on hold.

I have several RDA country books charged to my debit card each for $10.65. I didn't order any of them!! How can I block additional charges?

Shelby Honeycutt on July 25, 2021

I have ordered NO books and I have a charge of $27.73 on 6/20 from RDA Country Books. They need to cancel this charge IMMEDIATELY. I don’t understand how they got necessary information to charge this to me! Companies like this should go to jail, as I see many comments from others! I will ask my bank to take care of this!

Shelby Honeycutt on July 25, 2021

RDA Country Books - 6/20/21 SCAM!!!! I have not ordered any books. They need to credit this charge IMMEDIATELY! FRAUD!!

Shannon Lee on August 02, 2021

I have a debit on my account for $27.57 8/2/21 and I had one last month too! I call 800-344-2560 and they say that they show no charge to me for anything and I will have to contact my bank. I contact my bank and I will have to go inside and request a new debit card. This is complete B.S and a total scam/fraud. Oh the hell did they get my # to charge my card. I have ordered no magazines or books. They aren't helpful at all and now this is a complete inconvenience to have to proceed with a new debit card request. So freaking %*&!ed.

Mario on August 16, 2021

RDA Country Books - 8/15/21. "THIS IS A SCAM". I got charged on my visa this morning for something that I never ordered.

Mario on August 16, 2021

This is a fraud! They charged my visa for something I never order.

Larry Majors on August 22, 2021

Sam G on September 06, 2021

I was charged for $10.60 by RDA Country Books for a purchase on September 1, 2021. I was away from home and did not have my credit card. I called the company's phone number and they said all lines were busy. I then found this website and called my credit card company and they said they will not pay the charge and will do an investigation. In the meantime they cancelled my credit card and will issue a new one.

RDA COUNTRY BOOKS on October 22, 2021

Scam, scam, didn't order from this place, Please be careful, don't trust this company

Jerry on October 29, 2021

I was just billed a second time for the same thing. What is going on?

Kailey on October 29, 2021

I think it may be a taste of home thing if you ever ordered a cookbook through them directly you click a box that you agree to have “sneak peaks” of the new cook books, which means they send the actual cookbook to you and if you keep it then you pay for it. I got mine a couple weeks ago and didn’t know if it was part of this deal and kept it, I guess it must be.

gloria on December 07, 2021

There was a charge on my VISA card today for RDA Country Books,. This is obviously a scam. It is a fraudulent charge' I have had to cancel my credit card because of it. I have never ordered anything from that "so-called" company!

RDA* Country Books on December 13, 2021

This is also Taste of Home Magazine / Cook Books. I called about a charge with RDA, and customer service said it shouldn't have shown up under Country Books, although, he could handle things under that acct. as well. .... RDA has several branches.

SANDRA MEISENBURG on March 14, 2022

Frank Sanger on June 21, 2022

I didn't knowingly order any book and have a charge of $35.92 on my credit card. Where is their phone number so I can contest this charge? I can't seem to find it.

H. Wilson on June 23, 2022

I chatted with the expert, who wanted me to join JustAnswers for $1.00 (refundable), and give them my bank account #, and "talk to a computer Technician". I told her, Pearl Wilson, that I didn't need a computer technician. Why do I need a "computer technician" ? My problem isn't with my computer. And give them more access to my bank account?

H. Wilson on June 23, 2022


D.G, Wheeler on June 26, 2022

I do not want this product And do not believe I would have order ever ordered it. I want it deleted and my money back asap.

Richard Pelletreauj on July 30, 2022

Once again I received another charge for a book I did not order nor have I ever ordered. Please take my name off your list as I never want to have another contact with you.

texanrebel on August 27, 2022

The charge is for a cookbook that I ordered from Taste of Home. It is legitimate. This company covers Taste of Home, Birds and Blooms, Handyman, Readers Digest, and County publications.

KAR on August 30, 2022

This charge comes from Taste of Home books. Mine, in particular, is the Quick Cooking Annual Recipes.

Armand on October 19, 2022

Really hate these scams. Again this year I have a charge for a subscription of a magazine I never heard of for $27.23. Hopefully I’ll get a refund for this nuisance.

J Burke on December 04, 2022

I have a credit card that I haven't used in four months. I received the usual statement today normally with a zero balance. There was only one charge of $38.47 on it that I know I didn't make from RDA Country Books. I don't normally buy books or magazines ever and on the statement was the charge with the 800 number for RDA in its' listing. I called it to see who they were and a mid easterner answered. (RED FLAG!) I asked him to explain what this charge was.and he wanted the last four digits of my card. I didn't give him any info and immediately hung up and called the fraud department of my Visa. The woman I talked was very sharp with regard to scams. It turns out it was a monthly recurring charge and was also charged the previously month of which she also took care of both. I don't know how RDA got my card number but Visa cancelled that card and will send me a new one. When you get your statement be sure to look at each of the charges because they will all look legitimate and will be "snuck" in there. Several years ago, I did inquire to Home Shopping Network about a book but they wanted more to ship it than the book itself so I said no. About one week later they called me back to tell me that the book would have free shipping. (Must have been a poor seller) I said OK AND he asked me if I wanted a special coupon for $1.00 that would give me over $100.00 back in buying stuff. I thought it over, sounded good, got the book but no coupon. Didn't think much about it (forgot about it) but one day I noticed a $38.99 charge on my Visa. I called the number and it turned out the $1.00 coupon I bought put me on a recurring $38.99 monthly charge to "save money" monthly guessing from them! THEY LEFT THAT PART OUT WHEN i PURCHASED THAT $1.00 COUPON. I told them to cancel that immediately and found out they had already been charging me that amount for the last four months. I asked them if I had ever used any of these "services" and they said no. I told them I wasn't told about there would be a recurring charge for this "service" and I wanted a full refund for all of it and they said they could only refund two months because I had waited too long. I then called my bank card immediately AND THEY GOT ME REFUNDED FOR ALL OF IT!! The bottom line here is keep a close watch on all charges on your statement because the scammers know how to trick most people who use their card alot to think it;s legitimate hiding with all the others.

charge 27.54. for a book i did not ordered. this is the thrid time

D>Mark on January 22, 2023

Our credit card was charged $27.54 by RDA*Country Books although we had not placed an order. The phone number listed is 800.344.2560 but when we called there was just a recording by "Book Services". We have determined that RDA = Reader's Digest, although we do not subscribe to it.

Garry on January 26, 2023

When I tried to get this charged back to the company, the bank representative gave me this number to get a refund for the charge - 800-344-2560. I will see in about 3 weeks if I get the refund.

Do you know anything about the source of this charge? Please comment below!
