Yesterday, I got these two bills. Actually, my dog Tubby got these two bills. Now once a long time ago, I ordered Shape magazine in Tubby’s name. The reason I did this was because when I ordered the magazine I added an adendum stating that they did not have my (Tubby’s) permission to sell my name and address, yada, yada, yada. I wanted to see if they would abide by my wishes. Apparently not, because Tubby received all kinds of junkmail after that including credit card applications.
Anyway, I never renewed Shape and it expired months and months ago. I’ve never even bought an issue of Fitness. My husbands grandmother used to have tons of magazines in her house that she never read. When my sister-in-law started going through ALL her mail, she found these solicitations all the time. Grandma thought hey were bills and she paid them. Anyway, I think this marketing technique is a sorry scam primarily aimed at the elderly (and dogs).
