My recent posts have discussed fraudulent attempts to get people to subscribe to magazines at often outrageous prices. This morning’s Wall Street Journal (11 November 2013) has a full page on the subject:
It mentions names like Associated Publishers Network, Magazine Billing Network, and United Publishers Service.
Now, the WSJ charges on the order of $275,000 for a full-page ad. They aren’t going to give over that much valuable advertising space unless they are really, really unhappy.
For more details, see the WSJ site. That page mentions that the WSJ is taking action to stop such frauds. I hope they succeed.
