Scam Attempt! Scam attempt! Magazine Subscription SCAM!
You know, I can’t help it, I take these things personally, especially when I am almost fooled.
A couple weeks ago I got a renewal notice for a magazine I take – but I remembered resubscribing; it’s a magazine I don’t want to miss! So I checked the cover of my most recent magazine, and it doesn’t expire until 2014.
Then I looked again at the renewal notice – it wasn’t actually from the publisher. And the price was very HIGH!
I threw it away.
Today I got two more renewal notices, from the same ‘subscription company.’ One was a three year renewal offer on a magazine I don’t take and would never take in a million years. The second was for a magazine I take, but at a price a lot higher than what I pay.
It just makes me so mad. These renewal offers LOOK so official. I Googled “magazine subscription scams” and found this reference where it tells about this renewal scam – and many others. It particularly warns you not to buy from people selling door-to-door; you often never see a magazine and you sure don’t see your money again, bye bye!
