PC Gamer — Fraudulent subscription
I had looked at some online sweepstakes "no purchase necessary" contests online in April 2008. PC Gamer had one to win a new computer and a free subscription to their magazine. Starting in May I started receiving a collection bill, for this subscription. I have looked all over for the address that is stamped on the outside of the bill and nothing of value has appeared. There is no phone number, no e-mail, no contact information what so ever.
I started thinking this was a scam and so when the "FINAL NOTICE" letter showed up in July I typed a letter explaining my side and giving all of my contact information and said for them to please contact me if they have any questions or comments. They have failed to contact me and I have yet to receive another letter. Making me really think that this is a scam.
Beware of fraudulent contests promising a free subscription if you win but apparently will sign you up for one if you lose.
