I received two magazines in the mail that I had not subscribed to. When I told the magazines (Maxim and Fast Company) that I had not subscribed to these magazines and that I suspected identity theft I was told that the subscription had come from Subco in Fresno, California. Text follows; Thank you for contacting Fast Company. Your order was received from an independent sales agency; therefore, cancellations and refunds must be made through them. We have suspended service on your record and are forwarding your correspondence to the agency listed below. SUBCO
800-258-3350 I immedialtely came to the scam site and I found another complaint (701941) concerning Subco and Maxim magazine.

Ditto to above comment of 22 April! Takes a while to unravel this mess...But, I guess I was lucky--I received THREE subscriptions. Most cooperative to delete the mess was Maxim.

Ditto... I have received numerous magazines including Parents, Good Housekeeping, Prevention and Shape Up that I did not order. I have contacted the magazine companies directly to cancel subscriptions that I did NOT order and was told... "Our agreement with all agencies is that any such actions must be taken only with their approval" Not only are we getting signed up without our permission but we don't have a right to cancel? Grrrrr This has been very frustrating and it should be illegal. They have given me the number of the agency as 800-258-3350 to whom I will register a strong complaint.

I can't even get an answer at the number!!! They want me to send an email to a dot-com address (?), when I go to the site, there's no "contact us" section. Imagine that :)

I am having the same problem with receiving magazines which were not ordered. My 91 year old mother is being sent "Working Mother" magazine, and she did not order it. She's partially blind, hard of hearing and has no idea why she has received this magazine

I''ve been through this sort of scam once before on behalf of my old Mom and ended up going through 3 different state Attorney General offices to get it cleared up, Finally, the Attorney General's office in Ohio went after the scammer and my Mom's credit card account was credited for several thousand dollars of fraudulent charges.

This is happening to me right now. I called the 1-800-234-0999 for a magazine called INC. They gave me Sub Co. When I called them they asked me what magazine am I calling about. I was able to name 14 different ones. They said I would have to call Millemmim Marketing. !-800-456-6565. Well they sent me back to Sub Co. I don't want these magazines nor did I ask for them! This is a third party mailing list. I can't get anyone to help me stop them.

I had this happen today (6/24/13). Received a Sports Illustrated magazine in the mail today. Called them with a strong complaint and was told to call SubCo at 1-800-258-3350. When I called them, I was told it came as a free offer along with something I'd bought, but when I asked who supported that, she said she couldn't say because of privacy concerns, but that they would have me unsubscribed from SI.

Privacy concerns? What about mine that someone has the info to put me on a list and has the ability to charge me $89.04 at some point for something I never wanted. That is beyond what I understand as good advertising... it's SLEAZY business! I don't need anyone sending me a magazine with a built in subscription, thank you.
