I was shocked when out of the blue I got 2 emails from parents.com . One was a notice to welcome me to the community website and the other was a "Thank you for your order" email. Upon checking on this by going directly to parents.com I saw that I had indeed been set up.

Whoever did it mistyped my address badly, and ordered a 6 months free trial to Parents Magazine.

When I attempted to contact support telling them this and thier response was:

And when I tried to click the link to reply that this did not help, the issue had been COMPLETELY deleted.. Even from the ticket history.

Tell me thats not hiding something! If they try to charge me I will raise heck. I do not want a magazine from a predatory company like this!
