This summer, 2007, my husband ordered a magazine subscription by a door-to-door seller, "to help the troops in Iraq." Apparently, he was told by the seller that not only was he helping him raise money for whatever, but that if he didn't want a magazine for himself he could do it for the troops in Iraq. Being that we fly an American flag 24/7, he chose the right ruse. On October 15 we received the first magazine - that's right, it came to our house, not to Iraq. I called the magazine, and they could not do anything for us, so referred me to Subco, an apparent clearing house. They also said that they could not take care of anything, but I'd have to call United Family Circulation. I've tried for 3 days, every extension numerous times, and left 2 messages without return.

My husband would never have bought a magazine if it were not for the soldiers he thought he was helping out. The cancellation policy on the phone message states you can only cancel the first 3 days after the sale. What about when you don't find that you are scammed until you receive the first magazine, 3 mos. later?

I've filed a complaint with the Georgia Better Business Bureau, and contacted my local police dept. I don't want these people around here! I am also making up a flyer for my neighborhood with comments from some of the news articles and BBB regarding this scam, so we will be more educated for next summer.
