You may have received a renewal notice or telephone call from a company calling itself United Publisher's Network. We have no relationship with this company, they are not authorized to offer our subscriptions, and the prices they charge are far higher than ours. If you received a call or one of these notices (example below), we suggest you ignore it, and we encourage you to complain to your local BBB, state attorney general or the Oregon Attorney General about these questionable business practices. UPN has offices in Oregon and we understand that a subscriber that complained to the Oregon AG received a refund from UPN. If you go online, you¹ll see a number of complaints about this company; they go by a number of different names and have targeted other publishers as well.
