Associated Publishers Network Fraudulent Magazine Renewal Solicitation Henderson Nevada
*Author of original report: This is an update made by the original Report Submitter, Not a Rebbuttal.
I received a renewal notice that appeared to be for The London Economist from ASSOCIATED PUBLISHERS NETWORK (hereafter APN). I knew my subscription was running out so this did not seem unusual. I paid APN $179.95 by check dated 2/28/2013. APN deposited my check on 3/18/2013. As of June 25, more than the promised 12 weeks after the deposit of my check, I have received no Economist magazine. A representative who works for the Economists told me that APN is running a scam. I called APN’s 866-437-7897 and was put on hold for 20 minutes. When I finally was able to talk to someone I was basically given a run-around and after I insisted that I "cancel", she said I might receive a refund check for $159.95 (less $20 “cancellation fee” in "4 to 6 weeks" "according to APN’s policy”. The individual I talked to told me she was "not an employee of APN". So apparently this was some sort of call center front operation under contract. I will be very surprised if I ever see any magazines or a any refund. I now think this is just garden variety mail fraud. If I receive a refund I will update this report and change it to reflect that the requested refund was received by me. But, I doubt I will ever see a refund. If you renew a magazine, do it with the card that is in the Magazine - don't deal with these crooks. If they told the truth about anything they would break out in hives. They are scum. But no law enforcement will ever do anything about them because they are not poor, not holding a gun and not holding up a bank. They are just robbing little guys like us - which of course does not matter.
