BBB Customer Reviews Rating represents the customers opinions of the business. The Customer Review Rating is based on the number of positive, neutral and negative customer reviews posted that are calculated to produce a score.

Customer Review Experience Value
Positive Review 5 points per review
Neutral Review 3 points per review
Negative Review 1 point per review

BBB letter grades represent the BBB's opinion of the business. The BBB grade is based on BBB file information about the business. In some cases, a business' grade may be lowered if the BBB does not have sufficient information about the business despite BBB requests for that information from the business.

Additional Notes

Complaint: I subscribed to this magazine in March of 2013. I have received one copy of the magazine. I have visited their website and no matter what you click on it does nothing or else you get an "error" message. If you try to click on "contact us" that does nothing also. Apparently they are not publishing the magazine and have closed down their website and have kept all of the subscribers' money we gave them and got nothing in return.

Desired Settlement: DesiredSettlementID: Refund I would like a refund of the subscription I paid which was $12.00 on March 3, 2013. I am retired and on a fixed income and I cannot afford to give a magazine money for nothing in return.
