yes, a MDC*BETTER HOMES transaction appeared on my son's credit card. He is a 20-year old college student and would never have ordered this magazine. I think it was done premptively before fraud was committed to see if the card would "work" - right after that there were multiple fraudulent charges.

MDC*FAMILY CIRCLE FOR $16.20 on 5/3/19 and MDC*BETTER HOMES ON 6/4/19 for $16.30. If they have your credit card number from the first time you subscribed, in my case it was an $8 or $10 subscription the first time, they will keep sending you the magazines and charge that card the new subscription price every year. When ordering, never give them your card number.

My credit card was charged $18.99 by MDC*BETTERHOMES on 7/9/19 for a subscription to Better Homes and Gardens magazine that I did not authorize. I called the 800 # to cancel and got the automated voice that wanted to help me renew my subscription, but no option to cancel. When I gave the automated voice some incorrect information, I was finally put through to a human being who claimed she couldn't hear me and hung up. I called back again several minutes later, listened to the automated lady again, when she asked for my subscription number I said I didn't have it, and was put through right away to another human being who canceled my subscription and will refund my $ problem.

Two unauthorized charges on 08 July, 2019, for $19.95. What the heck!!!
I do subscribe to Martha Stewart, but my subscription in paid in full and not due for renewal.
I have never had an automatic renewal before. Been a subscriber for several years now.
I will report this fraudulent activity to my back on Monday;

I just got hit this morning on my credit card for an unauthorized purchase of $114.48 to MDC*PeopleMagazine MS 866-272-0717 IA. I tried calling the number and it didn't state what business it was, just that they were only open Monday through Friday. I did dispute the charge on my card immediately but will see what happens. This is craziness. Who just gets to charge $$ on people's cards?
