Do not be tricked by Forbes' "free issue" offer on their website. It is a deceptive scam. When clicking the offer, two options are presented : 1) Subscribe now and receive a special rate, the or 2) Just send me a free issue. I chose option 2. I never got the free issue and am now receiving bills for something I never ordered. I am supposedly past due on the payment, but never agreed to a purchase of any kind.  Total scam. Beware.

#1 UPDATE EX-employee responds

FORBES: 'Get Free' issue scheme mutates into an online moster

AUTHOR: Big Data BULL - ()

The basic objective of all "free Issues' is the same. Get the credit card information find out how much credit you can bill monthly on victim’s credit card [and] take all of it. The unconnected masses definitely have no idea how much money is made from this scam by Forbes Magazine and Elevation Partners.

One of the things I did was to follow the money. This took a lot of the time, a lot of these fraudsters have front people, so you’ve completely failed in a fraud investigation if all you do is get the front men of Forbes magazine, those are the real scamsters (ELEVATION PARTNERS) wants you to believe FORBES.
