that you didn't subscribe too? I got a Family Circle Magazine with my ex last night on it that I haven't used since 1998, with a statement for $19.98 telling me to mail by 11/28/07. I have never subscribed to this magazine in my life. There isn't an 800 number or email on this bill. Interesting.

I got something like that once, for the... America's Test Kitchen book and magazine. I just called them - you can find a 800 number online I'm sure - and sent the stuff back via Return to SEnder and then told them that I sent it back. Cleared it up immediately.

Maybe they were just hoping you'd pay it and keep the subscription?

Or it might be a scam and not from the publisher at all. Someone could make some money that way. If you receive something in the US mails that was unsolicited with your name on it, it is yours to keep.

I got a second invoice to Lucky magazine.

Let me explain:

I got it for free for signing up for the Big Brother 24/7 feed via Real Player. I didn't want it but it was free so it came....got the last issue a few months ago....now they keep sending things that are like bills, I guess to make me think that I need to send it back and pay....but I don't...that's only if I want to extend my magazine subscription, but the way it reads and looks is like it's a bill that I have to pay---not like it's a choice of subscribing again or not subscribing.....

I'm going to send the bill with a note that says I didn't subscribe and see what happens.

Could they be like gift subscriptions? I know when I used to get Owl magazine, i thought they ere trying to scam me, but when my parents called, it turned out to be a subscription and the bill was just a follow up and we didnt have to pay it

I don't think mine is a gift. It's definitely a bill - "second notice."
