The Hearst Corporation B. Fichtel Sent me an invoice for renewal of a subscription to "O" magazine that I did not request/order. Internet, Iowa

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

I received an invoice for subscription services for "O" magazine for one year in the amount of $10.00. The actual total was $15.00 but, I was offered a $5.00 discount.  I did not request a renewal for the magazine and I never ask to be billed...

If I requested a renewal of the subscription and my payment was delinquent, why would they offer me a $5.00 discount? The invoice was with a notice from the "Credit & Collections Department."  The really sad part of all of this is they are exploiting Oprah.  They actually have the "O" magazine logo in the top left corner.

I sent a copy of the documents to Oprah's office so she can get to the bottom of this scam.
