Although my main interest is obnoxious logos, I occasionally note obnoxious scams.
I recently got an offer to subscribe to Forbes from “Associated Publishers Network” in Henderson, NV. The “best” rate they offered was $129.95, far more than Forbes’ regular rate.
These sorts of operations have no connection to the magazines themselves and send out offers to whatever mailing lists they can purchase.
Their credit card processor is “unitedpubex.com.” Avoid anything that requires paying through them as well.
