Watch Out for a Magazine Subscription Scam

We have heard from many of our Love of Quilting subscribers that they are receiving renewal notices in the mail that have outrageous prices.

If you receive an invoice in the mail that looks like this, it is a scam. Our rates are $20.97 for 1 year or $32.97 for 2 years. With the holidays coming up, we may have a promotion and the cost will be less than $20.97. If you are ever in doubt, please call our customer service representatives at 888-985-1020.

We have been working for many years to shut down these scammers, but they still exist. For a complete list of bad subscription agents, please visit www.

  1. I have received two of these notices asking for payment. When I received the first one I checked my records for my payment and found that I had already paid my one year prescription. I called the phone number to the Fons & Porter payment office and informed them of the new notice I received. They checked my record and informed me I had paid my subscription to date and this must be a “scam” and definitely do NOT pay it. About two months ago I received another notice to pay…I threw it away.

  2. I was scammed, and my bank got my money back after sending them a letter with my proof of their reputation, and inability to get in touch with them. They still send them to me. Sometimes I get 4 or 5 a day for different magazines.

  3. I have received several of these in the mail to renew my Love Of Quilting Magazine. I get a number of quilting magazines and wasn’t sure of my renewal day so I called the number in the magazine. They told me it was a scam. I plan on turning them into the postal inspector at the post office. My question is—How did they know I receive the Love of Quilting Magazine?

  4. Just got one today,4/30/13, and since I knew I was paid up 2 years on my subscription it immediately made me suspicious.
    The price is different, it says $56.94/yr. But otherwise it looks the same.
    Envelope is addressed to ATTN: Mail Processing Department PO Box 2489 White City OR 97503 Says to make payment to RPS, or credit card link to go

    Isn’t this mail fraud? I will fill out a form and send it in. And I’ll return the invoice, with my address removed, and write across it in red NICE TRY SCUMBAG!!!
