This should not be a recurring charge -- it was a one-time gift subscription for family member

Shows on my credit card statement as a recurring charge of $12.00 dated 9-6-2018. The 800# doesn't even connect or ring.

$15.90 charge made at 6:23 am. When I go into my account with them they say I do not have an active account. No kidding. I have demanded a refund through them and reported the fraud through my credit card.

I called 800-374-4244 got to talk to a rep. I was told when I subscribed online I did not remove the check mark that is automatically put in a box that says auto renew. May be true but think thats bull. So when you subscribe online be careful to remove that check in the box. Thats deceiving practice. Not professional. Hope this helps. They did cancel my subscription and refunded me.

I just opened my credit card statement and found a charge of $16.05 from MDC*BETTER HOMES & GARDENS. I had subscribed, however, did not renew. Glad I looked it up on here. Good to know others are also complaining. This is a bad situation. I will definitely dispute. This needs to to reported the the Better Business Bureau.

This charge showed up in my banking transactions however, it was an unauthorized charge. I called the Better Homes and Gardens customer service to dispute it and have it reversed, which they did. At one time I had a subscription to BH&G (in 2013) but, chose not to renew my subscription. I asked how they received my banking info and the representative said it was on file. She verified the card they have on file. The problem is she verified my current banking information and they were never given that account info. My original subscription (in 2013) was paid with my prior account info and I never gave them my current debit card info, which is only 2 months old. She gave no answers to how it was obtained. Nor do I have any other magazine subscriptions. It remains unexplained how they received my banking info.

1. Contacted 18885562892, MDC Magazine Store and was told to contact Subco to cancel
2. Contacted 18002583350, Subco and requested a cancellation. Devon gave me a cancellation #1416228 and was told by Devon that Shape Magazine would have to issue a credit $9.99.
3. Contacted 180084640047, Shape Magazine and was told that they could not issue credit of $9.99 ; verified by Supervisor Tasha, x12290 and that Subco would be the one
4. Recontacted Subco, 18002583350 and spoke with Supervisor Erica and said that they did not have my credit card info; I would have to contact phone number Mellinium and speak with a supervisor
5. Contacted Millennium Magazine, 18004566565 and spoke with Supervisor Catherine; she advised me that I would have to contact the phone number on my bank statement
6. Recontacted 18885562892, Meredith and spoke with Supervisor Tasha, x12290 and was told that they did not have my credit card info. Told her that was funny cause I sure am looking at a charge of $9.99 on my statement. She spoke with a Manager and was advised that I would need to report as fraud to receive credit from my bank

Showed up on my credit card but I did not order anything related to this charge.

Showed up as follows:
MDC*BHG/FC BOOK PROGRM $9.65

I'll be contacting my credit card company to not pay this charge and consider it a fraudulent
charge.

Just saw an unauthorized subscription charge for 12.00 from MDC*Better Homes. All of a sudden I started receiving the magazine in the mail as well as Eating Well and did not authorize nor subscribe to these magazines. How is this happening? Many of us on here have the same problem, this should be illegal. CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT, illegal!

this transaction showed up on my bill. I had a subscription years ago with a different credit card. Have not reordered. Now I will never reorder. Plus, I have texture, so why would I order a mag subscription when I already have access to the magazine?

01/11/2018 MDC Better Homes 800-374-4244 CO for $12.51.

I had these subscriptions but did not renew. The problem is there is no option to change or remove your credit card information. I'm really disappointed this company is so dishonest.
