    ....Or you could cancel the direct debit with your bank (assuming that's the arrangement you have with ATM)? Unfortunately direct debits are a bitch because once a company has your account details they can dip into your account at any point in the future (even once you've cancelled it) in full knowledge no one's going to take them to court over a few quid...

    If it crops up again tell your bank who should refund any payments made to ATM after the date you cancelled the direct debit with them. If ATM keep 'dipping' then write to them asking them to write you a letter confirming they've wiped your data from their records...

    Always try to pay with standing orders if possible...

    The way I did it was to raise an official dispute through my paypal account page rather than ringing. Think it has to be within 28 days of the payment going out though. The mag is still running so there must be a working contact somewhere!!?

    I've never used paypal but if you look at their user agreement (13.5 & 13.6) it looks you have 45 days to raise a dispute and escalate it.

    https://cms.paypal.com/uk/cgi-bin/m...ll&locale.x=en_GB#13. PayPal Buyer Protection

    Not sure how you can take it back a year unless it was one payment?

    Just had a look at their facebook...what a bunch of cunts!

    Seeing as they're trading out of an address in Brick Lane might be worth calling Tower Hamlets Trading Standards on Tel: 020 7364 5008. They might at least give you some good advice...

    Stranger and stranger...

    ATM'S last magazine from the owner of http://www.atm-mag.com/index.php?fullsite was published in april last year. You can still buy a revamped ATM from http://www.chemical-records.co.uk/sc/servlet/Info?Track=ATM90 so it's probably changed hands. If you really want to contact them then you could always buy a copy (painful as that sounds) and see if the new owners will give you their details...

    The e-mail associated with that paypal account is jason@totalmerchandise.co.uk so I guess that's the fucker that paypal have been giving your money to! The website also wants you to send cheques and postal orders to a PO Box in Southend (which has to be rented near where you live or your business is based) so I guess that's where he lives.

    I would say happy hunting mate but tbh unless you're looking to take them to court I dont see the point...stick with paypal.

I contacted Juno record since they sell ATM as well, but they could not give me any contact..strangely enough. Let you guys now if I find the f*****

    Wouldn't ATM be distributed by a company though? I'm pretty sure SRD might distribute the mag actually.

    ATM went downhill when Jordan V took it over from Frenzic.

    I know Jordan V don't have it now but the quality and service doesn't sound like it's got any better.

    Shame as ATM was the best mag around, still got hundreds of them ranging back to issue 3.

    Thnaks, I contacted Warner which used to be there distributor..but not they tried to help without succes. Have just called SRD...they will try to find a email...but in the beginning did they say that they not had any contact person at ATM...sound strange to me
