Subco Inc Unwanted Magazine Subscription Fresno California

Show customers why they should trust your business over your competitors...

At the end of June, I began receiving issues of Entertainment Weekly.  When I called EW to cancel the one-year subscription, I was informed that I can't because I didn't order it! (What a lovely Catch-22!)  I asked to speak with a supervisor who agreed to make sure that my name & address are "shared" because of the subscription.

 She also provided with the contact info for Subco Inc (800-258-3350) since they ordered the subscription.  Now, I have to contact them to have them cancel the subscription.  To say the least, I am NOT happy.  Subco are on Pacific Time, so I will try them again when they are open. 

I am already on the Direct Marketing Associations lists for "Do Not Call" and "DMA Choice."  I am listed there as requesting not to receive email offers from magazines to which I don't subscribe.

Subco should be ashamed of themselves!  What a waste of my time!  Also, advertisers pay for their ads based on a magazine's circulation.  To have the circulation artifically inflated just seems wrong!
