Take a close look the next time you open your mail.
I'm getting complaints about letters that appear to be bills. One of them has to do with a magazine subscription.
The problem is, the person never ordered the magazine.
She says, "I just glanced at it and was about to put it by my checkbook to pay, when I took a closer look. This looks so legit at first glance, I wonder how many folks pay it in a rush."
She didn't fall for it, but I did some research, and other people did bite.
The business is Associated Publishers Network out of Henderson, Nevada. The Better Business Bureau gives it a D-, and many complaints concern billing.
I contacted the business Wednesday and they had no comment about the viewer's concern.
With this one, if you look closely, it does say renewal offer, not a bill.
So take this as a warning. I hope you pass it on to parents, grandparents or anyone you know may just pay bills without really checking them out first. Don't forget -- read everything thoroughly.
That includes credit card bills that could have bogus charges for something you never ordered.
