Complaint / review text:
I received an invoice from the Hearst Corp thanking me to choosing to be a part of their Continuous Service Program and saying they had recently processed my renewal to Food Network Magazine as they had previously notified me about.
I never chose to be part of their Continuous Service Program (I've never heard of the Hearst Corp until this scam invoice arrived!), was not notified of their processing of a renewal for the magazine (I had already consciously decided NOT to renew the magazine when the REAL renewal notice was sent out) and I have no intention of renewing now.
Once I received this invoice, it was difficult to find a phone number to contact the Hearst Corporation to complain and tell them I was not renewing, nor had I ever had contact from or with them in the past.
Once I did search for the Hearst Corp on line, there are nothing but complaint registry sites listing a multitude of complaints for against them for this same scam involving several magazines and multiple mailing addresses for the Hearst Corporation. Why are these people still in business???
