United Publishers Network
Author: chatanuga

Got a thing in the mail the other day from a place called United Publishers Network offering me a three-year subscription to Model Railroader. Wasn't there a thread a while ago on here about some place ripping people off by offering them subsciptions to Kalmbach's magazines? Is this the same place? I thought it was unusual that a subscription renewal offer came from someplace other than Kalmbach.

Check with the local postal inspector to see if the offer is legit. They LOVE nailing rip-offs.

The other was an outfit called Publishers Service Exchange in Medford, OR. I'd suggest you treat any "offer" like that with a very large helping of suspicion and point the Postal Inspectors at them - if they're legit they won't mind one bit!

Just got an e-mail back from Kalmbach. Unless a renewal comes directly from them, it is NOT legit. They already have the info from many other customers about the place and are looking into putting an end to the scam.

Thanks for the info! You probably saved a bunch of people some grief! Now, get to the PI office with the offer. Nothing like a Federal Rap to brighten up the day!
