On Monday I got a copy of the Ladies Home Journal in the mail along with a bill thanking me for my subscribing online etc. and then I recieved another bill today saying my first issue should arrive shortly and thanking me for my subscription. Uh ok huh? BUt I never ordered it!! I NEVER even read that magazine I have no use for it right now,so I am a little freaked out. Any one else ever had that happen?

yikes. no i've never had that. but unsolicited books/magazines you can keep even if you don't pay. maybe someone signed you up as a prank or something?

there must be a 1-800 number on the bill or something that you can call and straighten it out. i'd call right away so they can stop sending you junk

that happened to me with readers digest. I just phoned them up and told them I did not order a subscripion. They just told me to keep the ones I recieve free of charge. I think they are hoping that some people will just pay the bill.

Same thing happened to me a couple of months ago but with Reader's Digest. I got an issue in the mail and i was like "huh?" and then 3 days later i got a bill! I think its a pretty shameful way to try to get people to subscribe to their magazines.

I can't get them to stop sending me Readers Digest. My parents have a subscription and I started getting RD with their name on them about 5 years ago. They still got theirs, but I got one as well. I've moved 4 times since then and the magazines will stop for a little while, then start up again at the new address. Frankly it's a little creepy. I feel like I'm being stalked by a magazine company.


I've never gotten a bill, so I'm not sure what the heck is going on. I'm moving again tomorrow, so it will be interesting to see how long it takes them to find me again.

That's the phone number for Meredith Corporation. Not a toll-free 800 number, I know.

I'd try the e-mail first.
