United Magazine Service, Inc. / Complete scam operation!
Like others posted on this site, I was called in August of 2005 and offered a good deal on the renewal of four magazines that I was currently getting.
Only one of the four magazines continued to be sent and the other three stopped when my original subscriptions (not through UMS) ended. I placed two calls to them and was given some BS about why there was a delay but that everything was in the system to be taken care of.
Of course, nothing ever happened and now UMS has taken everyone's money and run.
Don't every purchase discounted magazine subscriptions over the telephone! Deal with the publications directly!
