A few months ago I decicded to subscribe to the Stereophile Guide to Home Theater magazine, which is American, but quite well recommended. So I duly filled in the online subscription form on their webiste giving my credit card details. The receipt said that I should get my first issue in 6-8 weeks, which is usual for US-based magazines.
Now, nearly two months later, I get a postcard from them, shipped via the Philippines, saying that they need my credit card details again as they were a bit slow in processing the subscription, so could I please fill out the card and post it back to them. Except there is no address on the card as they have carefully blocked it out with black marker pen. Obviously they don’t actually want any subscribers, so I’ll save them the bother by throwing the card in the bin.
