Complaint / review text:
I subscribe to "Just Cross Stitch" magazine. Recently, I received a "bill" from "Publishers Billing Association, " AKA "Magazine Subscription Service." I subscribe directly to this magazine and did not use this "service" to subscribe. I was alarmed at the amount they were charging for a subscription, and became suspicious. The normal subscription rate for this magazine is approx $20/yr, but they were offering two years for $65.95!
I alerted the magazine publisher, and received a response that they are not affiliated with this "service" company and they recommended I contact the BBB.
What this company is attempting to do is collect outrageously inflated fees (theft) and they are fraudulently representing themselves as being affiliated with the publisher of this magazine!
