Cook's Illustratedcook's illustrated misleading automatic renewals practice

I subscribed and was forced to sign up for automatic renewal. I got a letter in August saying it would be automatically renewed after my upcoming and last issue. The information on the front of my magainze says clearly my sibs ription expireds Dec? 2017. So. Uhc to my surprise today, August 23 when I called to, get a confirmation for the online cancellation of automatic renewal that I did online today my subscription was already automatically renewed three months before the expiration date on my mailing address. The lame excuse I got was the last issue is SEPT/OCT. and they did not want To have a lapse and miss an issue. So why does the mailing label say the expiration date is December 2017. Why send me a letter implying I can stop automatic renewal if you have already charged my card. This is scandalous. Clearly trying to trick people with misleading information,
