Complaint / review text:
I received in one day, July 1.2011, five postal letters which look like bills from this company. Four of them are regarding magazines I have never subscribed to and the fifth is for one I am subscribing to (Magazine X). The letters for the first four are headed "Notice of renewal/New order." The letter for Magazine X is headed "INVOICE."
A person has to examine the first four very carefully to learn that these are not renewal slips for a current subscription. As to the fifth one marked "invoice, " I am advised directly by that magazine that their own billing office does all billing in-house and does not contract out to any agency such as Orbital Publishing/Magazine Billing Network.in this "invoice, " it is stated that my 1-yr sub costs $99 (when in fact the true charge is only $79), and the next line states that I owe $49.97. I have PAID this sub IN FULL months ago and have the record to prove it. This outfit is a scam.
