"LAWRENCE LAVKULIK: 5 BIG CHEQUES WAITING TO BE CASHED!
With all the hard work done. we've left you the easy part. Just return your "cheques" by Dec. 15, 2008 Entry CloseDeadline. Each one is another chance for you to walk away with cash in hand, including our $500, 000.00 Grand Prize plus any one of 360 additional prizes totalling $202, 500.00. I'm waiting to forward our final list of winners to our Vice President of Finance, K. Burgess, for full payment, so please don't delay.

What happens next could be the moment you'd always dreamed about. It's the moment when you see a huge $500, 000.00 depsoit on your bank statement, yours to spend any way you'd want.!"

It goes on and on, someone might believe them, maybe you can stop this crap. I can FAX you pages of mail I get from Reader's Digest. I know one thing, I will never even read THE READERS DIGEST' again. This is garbage, nothing but garbage.

Thanks in advance
Lawrence Lavkulik

P.S. - Would be nice to hear from you and your comments.

Reader's Digest - I will never subscribe to this magazine again!
United States

Surprise... What surprise??? Talk about the run around! It sends you to unpteen sites -- none of which offer you any 'gift'. How can you claim a gift when you are sent to sites that want nothing but money. Shame on Readers Digest. I will never subscribe to their magazine again. NEVER!!!

Reader's Digest - Reader's Digest is a fraud!
United States

So, is this a marketing ploy to see how many people will complain about/or to Reader's Digest regarding the so-called "Free Surprise Gift" which awaits preferred subscribers?

This is how brand names begin to lose credibility with the general public.

I tried to find out how to unsubscribe from receiving the book and got no results.

Reader's Digest - Beware of free gift from Reader's Digest!
United States

To get a so-called "free" gift, you are required to examine another of their products. I don't want to mess with any mailings that I have to examine and return to them. There's always a catch.

Reader's Digest - Unable to locate Free Surprise
United States

Following instructions to go to www.rd.com/surprise, I am unable to know which of the many options to go to to see what the free surprise is. Can't you make it simple, especially for those like me who are not highly sophisticated on computers?

Reader's Digest - Fraud and cheating!
United States

My husband ordered a subscription for me from Reader's Digest in June of 2007. In July I received June's magazine and on August 10, 2007 I received July's and August. I had already purchased these at the store. They should not send back issues as part of a new subscription.

Beware!

www.rd.com/surprise

First a screen advertising a subscription to their magazine came up along with other web sites to select. Then when the next web site was selected the full screen had an area that indicated that there was a place to logon but there was none.

Readers Digest alway has a lot of papaer waste in and with their magazine, and you get more junk mail from them as well.

Did you try typing in the URL in the address bar at the top of your web browser? Sometimes, searching in Google (or any other search engine) will not bring up the page but typing it directly in your browser will.
