Chicago Tribune trial I didn't ask for

Recently I received a letter from a debt collector on behalf of the Chicago Tribune. The company claimed that I owed $32.25 and that I needed to pay them immediately--or I could call them to plead my case.

Naturally, I called them. They refused to produce evidence of the debt or explain where it came from --other than to direct me to Chicago Tribune.

Recently I received a letter from a debt collector on behalf of the Chicago Tribune. The company claimed that I owed $32.25 and that I needed to pay them immediately--or I could call them to plead my case.

Naturally, I called them. They refused to produce evidence of the debt or explain where it came from --other than to direct me to Chicago Tribune.

So I called Chicago Tribune. They claimed that I had signed up for a Tribune trial from a door-to-door salesperson/kid asking for a donation for their education. They said that I had been receiving newspapers for months (I hadn't) and they had been sending me bills.

I have no idea what they were talking about. Neither does my wife. We'd never seen a door-to-door Tribune salesperson, much less signed up for a subscription. If the Trib had sent any bills, we probably assumed it was unsolicited junk mail.

The customer service rep eventually credited the account, but not before admitting that there were others like me calling in about their own mystery bills.

My suspicion is that this door-to-door "salesperson" put us on the list without consulting us. I'm curious to know if anyone else has experienced this.

  • rkp

    Sounds like you were scammed but were lucky that the tribune is a reputable company. These kids going door to door oft times work for an out state company that is subcontracted by a company like the tribune and the company receives a fee for each subscription they obtain Tribune may have even received this signed subscription but it was not signed by you.

    I had this same thing happen to me. In my case, the kids did come to my door, but I told them I wasn't interested because I didn't want to just give my info out and I didn't want the paper. Next thing I know, I get a passed due invoice. It was the first thing I had ever heard of it since I saw the kids. No other invoices, no papers, nothing.

    I called and explained that, she eventually, after making extra sure I didn't sign up for it, put in a ticket to have it eliminated.

    I wonder if some of these kids just wrote down names and addresses and turned them in.

Comcast anyone ?

How widespread is this COMCAST internet issue today ?

We've been out (or barely running) all day over here near Lawrence & Rockwell.

Comcast first said it had been going on since last night and would be on again a 2:30 pm ... and then that time came and went.

How can I post this ? Very carefully - sneaking through a rare ultra-slow service point evidently.

(Comcast should seriously look into improving the way they handle their customers)

  • CCN New to Lincoln Square

    Seems it's not just you. We have them coming out on Saturday to address the issue that's been happening on and off for weeks. They are worthless. They come out, fix one of the units and unplug another's. Seems it's all over the neighborhood though.

Looking for Movers - insured/ licensed

We're looking for movers in a couple weeks, and were wondering what companies you'd recommend. I called 2 Guys & a truck, and their price quote was too high (for moving a very small apartment). What are your thoughts? Some of the places that have good reviews on Yelp don't have web sites or very findable sites, so it's hard to find out more about the company. I do plan to make calls, but would love to have neighbor input.

  • These guys were great: http://www.neuhausandsons.com/

    Also, unlike others that I contacted, they had $1mil in insurance on our move.

  • We used OnTime Movers, who seemed to change their name to In and Out. First time, had a great experience. The second time took forever and it cost us a pretty penny. The third crew member was apparently new and being trained. They wrapped everything with tons of blankets and tape (things that did not need it), which they charged us for. Would not recommend them again.

Even at 6, I had to wait 5-10 minutes a few times. Not a huge deal, except I'm trying to get home in time to get the kids up and ready for school so every minute counts. The facilities are not spotless but decent enough that I shower there (with flipflops). It fits our needs fine.

Apartment burglary

My friend's second-floor apartment near Damen/Lawrence unfortunately was burglarized during the day yesterday. Her laptop and jewelry were stolen, as well as a backpack to haul the stuff in, apparently. Thankfully her cute little cats were unharmed. The doors were bolted when she came home and no windows were broken, so they're not sure yet how the thief got in but they think he must have had a key somehow, possibly from/as a previous tenant.

That uncomfortable theory might raise questions of security and safety for all us renters out there. It also underscores the importance of having renter's insurance.

I hope karma bites that guy right in the a**.

  • Love how everyone always wants to screw the landlord. It takes maybe 5 minutes to change a lock. If you ask your landlord to change your locks and he doesn't do it fast enough for you, do it yourself and give him a key. It's a better route than hiring attorneys and going down that road.

  • b in edgewater/andersonville interested resident and business owner

    I wanted to address the issue of always making sure you have renters insurance. People tend to think the builidng they live in is totally secure and they " don't really own anything". Break ins are traumatic and the last thing you want to deal with is worrying about who pays for what. Get renters insurance. Barbara Janusek State Farm agency on Broadway and Bryn Mawr will get you coverage for less than $12.00 a month.

Advice on Electric

Just received a mailing from ComEd with option to switch to clean energy by signing the Clean Energy Option form. Has anyone switched? Do you think it's a good idea to sign up for electricity coming from renewable sources "like solar and wind." My initial thought is Yes! However, I made a switch with Peoples energy and tripled my bill. Any advice would be appreciated (regarding this). Thank you!

  • Damian Raszewski Ravenswood Photographer

    I've seen this offer from another provider as well, seems that's it's becoming more common. I think it's a great idea, but currently, the companies do charge you more for this option. Some apparently, charge more than others.

I can still use it, but now I have little pieces falling off the screen. Yelp reviews are all over the place with some of the independent repair stores. Any recommendations?

    On a whim I just checked out the cost of Macbook Pro replacement displays and they are outrageously expensive ($300-800 just for hardware). $600 for repair is a good deal as far as repairs go, and you're not looking for recommendations for replacement, but fundamentally it is important to know that you can get a non-apple device for far less. The initial response to this generally is that you know the apple interface and like the quality of the construction. In my 12 years of computer repair, a majority of my customers have needed their Macs fixed (both in hardware replacement and software irritations). The hardware in Apple products is the generally the same as what you would find in other non-Apple products and while the engineering (generally) is better, the life span of hardware (storage life and (recently) CPU hard/firm architecture) is the limiting factor for the life of the product and that will be roughly the same as any other well reviewed product. The laptop market is very close, but non-Apple is generally at a fraction of the cost. As for the user interface, if you look at screen shots of the user interfaces of all mainstream OS and applications, you can see striking similarities as many user experience designers come to a common consensus on the ideal computer/human interface (with current common input devices). I can't give a wholehearted recommendation for change as I don't know how you use your machine, but for the vast majority of people a $250 (sale $200) Chromebook would be more than sufficient and cheap enough to assign less worry to its well-being. Considering the cost of the repair you could buy a Chromebook, an external display, and a high quality Android phone (off contract) for seamless life and/or business device harmony. As a disclaimer, I just want to say I might also be biased by my irritation at some of the licensing choices Apple has made in the last couple decades, some of which make Bill Gates seem like Linus Torvalds.

You must have known I was in danger of sleeping in on this non-work day for me. Thank you, person who probably has a cell phone and could have called said passenger to notify them of arrival, for your brusque honk-honk-honk, a trinity of super quick cacophony, for not only making sure I saw the sunrise, but for testing to see if my sympathetic nervous system was working. FYI: It is. Thank you, because I frequently forget about it.

Thank you for honking when you could have easily double parked in a quiet & empty Lincoln Square to flag down/ ring the door of said passenger, because this way I get to imagine--for just a beautiful second--what it's like in New York or Hong Kong at noon on Tuesday.

Where, I must ask, did you learn such *spectacular* common courtesy? You must have taken a course from the early morning clamorous crew at Lake Shore Recycling Company. Those guys are common courtesy pros, frequently arriving at 5:45 or, on their more lazy days, 6:40 or so, and doing their job with *such* aplomb. Those guys know how to get it done, and by it, I mean making my Circadian rhythm like that of a mutable jazz solo. And I really like jazz, so why not syncopate my very being? Noise ordinance 11-4-2900, you are for obedient losers.

I nominate you, sir/ ma'am, for a Nobel Prize for common courtesy. Please feel free to enter your own nominees for this prize in the comments.

PS--If you've seen this scene from Louie, I feel like it captures the wonder of this moment I experienced this morning: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B0g3q_4kZnU

  • I do as Jeff does. No honk needed. The best was the other day, pulling out of my alley (which turns into another alley before getting to street) with a car right behind me. I inch slowly, stop and move on. She lays on her horn, despite the fact that she was only an inch behind me. Plus the fact that since I had turned, no car could be coming through from opp direction.

Alternatively, I'm open to suggestions of charities/churches/etc. that might be interested, but they need to pick it up. First come, first served of you want it. Thanks!

wonderful neighbors!

I recently moved into this area and I just have to say there was a loose dog issue this morning out of my building and SO many people just dropped everything to help and eventually catch the doggie so we could keep her safe until we could reunite with her owner. Happy ending all the way around, but just wanted to mention HOW wonderful everyone was.
