anybody else getting bombarded with magazines you didn't order
Sometimes I get a magazine or a bill for a magazine subscription that I did not order. I have always sent the bill back telling them I did not order this. In the past two weeks I have had over 11 magazines or bills saying I ordered them. Is anybody else having this problem? I am trying to figure out if I entered a contest that has done this. I am always careful to opt out of magazine subs. Any suggestions.

Yes, I had this problem last fall! Major pain in the neck! I finally got it all straightened out, but I ended up getting more than 14 different magazines I had not ordered!

I just started getting Blender and other magazines I never signed up for! No bills yet, just actual magazines.

I bet we entered a sweep
Seems odd it has happened to several of us. I bet we entered a sweep that did this. If I find out what contest I will stop entering from them because I have spent quite a bit of time and stamps trying to get these cancelled. Good luck to the rest of you. Have a great and lucky day.

There have been a couple lately. I know I opt out of offers on sweeps I enter, so not sure where they are coming from.

same magazines
I also noted that we are getting the same magazines. The first week was shape and keyboarding then about a week later my mailbox started getting full of them. Does anybody know if they are owned by the same company. I would like to try and just call one person to end them all. Thanks.

I get them all the time but thy are not really bills they just look like them.There is usually a place to check if you want the magazine. I just throw them out.I haven't ever received a magazine that I did'nt order but I know people that have. One of my daughters used to get them (14) and I would just write this is a minor on them and that stopped that .

I am famous at the Post office. The Magazine Lady. DH and I probably get about 30 mags a month. Some of them we wanted. Others were free subscriptions because we wanted to see if the mags were any good. Some just show up - like FHM, Maxim and Stuff. I know I didn't order those!

DH just got a copy of Field & Stream in Saturday's mail, and we also have been getting National Geographic. DH's cousin who lives downstairs has also been getting the National GTeographic since the same time, so I almost wonder if his grandma ordered it for both of us. But I have NO idea where (or why, for that matter) we picked up Field & Stream. No bills yet, at least.

Be careful if you use Robo. A few times I have noticed that the web sites move their values, so if you have checked "no" to the magazine for one sweeps, for the next sweeps it may change and your no turns into yes!

YES YES YES
and it sucks. I have written a letter of complaint to one specific company and just got a letter head back telling me to keep the years subs. because they did it 3 times. I was spitting mad, but I now am getting a year on them HA (Its a good mag too)
