Picked up phone. No one there. The number is now in my computer program PhoneTray which will answer this number the next time they call, give them a piece of my mind, and hang up. All that's needed is a Fax/Data/Voice/CallerID modem and the program. Check it out at: http://www.phonetray.com/
Judging from other comments, these aren't the publishers themselves, but are likely companies that sell subscriptions, kind of like the ones you might see children selling via fundraiser.
These people are scammers. I was getting calls from a Florida number. Now this one. Same line...renew a magazine. Usually Playboy. DO NOT give them your credit card info. They are not legit.
My Playboy subscription is up for renewal. I always know to wait for these guys to contact me before I renew because they
always make an offer lower than any you'll receive. I still like receiving PB.
They just called me five minutes ago and claimed to be from PlayBoy magazine (which I have a subscription to). They were going to lower my rate as I was a long-time customer. I told the guy I was not interested, and he came back with "you don't want to save money"? I said "Not with you," and hung up.
He was also very annoying and was sucking on a toothpick while talking to me.
Also--they had called several months ago as well, and I contacted PlayBoy magazine and they told me that they don't outsource their subscription services.
We got the same call but they don't answer when we call bac,.
These criminals claim to be associated with Reader's Digest, and want money to "renew your subscription."
