Post #6198357

A few weeks ago I received Fine Gardening magazine in the mail without ever having subscribed to least not in the last few years.
Today an invoice arrived which was not surprising. I called the customer service number on the invoice and told her the problem and asked her if she knew who signed up for this magazine. She said the link came through Dave's Garden!
What in Heaven's name is going on? Do they have access to members' names and addresses in order to send out magazines as if we had ordered them?
Sounds illegal to me.
Has anyone else received a gardening subscription they didn't request? I would report this to some agency but I have no idea to whom the complaint should be addressed.
