Halfpricedmags Complaint - They sold my email address to spammers !!
SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA -- First of all, I must give credit where credit is due. Unlike the other reviewers - I got my magazine subscriptions on time. I used them to buy some business magazines (business 2.0, fortune etc) and some computer magazines (maximum pc etc).
I think the delivery of the magazines is usually driven by the magazine companies themselves and they probably do not control it well. If you buy magazine from smaller houses there is a bigger chance of getting swindled.
However, I was very disappointed by the fact that after my subscription was over halfpricedmags went ahead and sold (or leaked) my email address to email spammers !!
I use a separate email address for every business entity I deal with so its very easy for me to track if any of them use that address for spamming. The address I used for halfpricedmags.com now gets a lot of spam and I never gave that address to anyone but them so I have to conclude that they passed on my address to spammers !!
For this reason alone, I do not recommend that anybody should do business with them.
