Is this happening to anyone else? (Mags)

Okay so about two years ago Maxim started coming to the house in my hubbys name. He didn't order it & ever since has been trying to get them to stop sending them.... (I know for a fact he isn't telling me that he didn't order them, & really did. Why lie about Maxim when he gets playboy?)

About a year ago, we started getting ESPN, Again without ordering it. Now we are getting others too, & we never ordered them, Dont want them & refuse to pay the bills, the company keeps sending us bills & bugging us to pay, even though We know we never ordered them.

My friend is having the same issue with Maxim. Shes a single mom so I doubt that she wants it!! So when it started coming she had issues.

My question is anyone else going through this? && if you are, are you going to pay?

  • Did you ever go to the music store FYE? or a Sam Goody or Suncoast if there are any more? They have this thing that if you pay with a credit card you can get free magazines. After the free ones come in the automatically sign you up for a subscription and charge your credit card if it's still valid. I don't know of any other stores that do this but FYE does and Maxim is one there list to choose from.

  • It has happened to me with Sports Illustrated. We did order it, but after 1 year I had enough and didn't renew. They kept coming along with the bills and the begging. Finally it stopped, but it took a long time.

  • did you click on any "special offers" or do any online contests? Magizine subscriptions are usually something that goes along with those and can be found in the fine print...

  • Soniam, I dont. I figure most of them are spam anyway... & I know hubby doesn't, He gets on facebook to do Farmville & talk with some of his old friends. He doesn't normally have the time to go to any other websites.

  • Finkette, Hubby didn't use Sam Goodes when they were in town. He felt they were overpriced & walmart was cheaper. (which explains why they closed down in my town.) && We aren't close to an FYI

  • A few times that I ordered from Amazon there was a box to check or uncheck about a free subscription. I declined.

  • Maybe someone is messing with you and signing you up for magazine subscriptions just to be a jerk.
