 The Hearst Corporation is sending bogus 2nd invoice notices for gift subscriptions that people have never sent. They are trying to shame or trick people to pay bills for a subscription that was never requested. I have received this week a "second unpaid account balance" for Town & Country magazine for a gift subscription for someone I have never heard of. I also received one from Veranda magazine also a second notice for a gift subscription. Last week I received the identical invoice for House Beautiful for another gift subscription, also a Heast magazine. This is horrendous for a supposedly reputable company to use such sneaky tactics in the name of "marketing". This is a scam pure and simple.
