It has come to our attention that our subscribers are receiving marketing promotions including phone calls from individuals/companies regarding their subscriptions with F+W Media. These individuals/companies are offering renewals (often 3-year renewals) and are very aggressive in asking for bank account numbers or credit card numbers.
We have no relationship with these companies and have no guarantee subscriptions purchased from these companies will be sent to F+W Media.
