There appears to be a new kid in town.
Here at Castle Curmudgeon we subscribe to way too many magazines so it wasn’t a surprise to receive a “Notice of Renewal” for Wired Magazine from Publishers Distribution Services, Inc., P.O. Box 2337, Brea, CA 92822.
Except that the notice looks suspiciously like the notices received from Gary L. Hutchings Magazine Billing Services, Inc. operation.
A quick check with the California Secretary of State’s database shows:
Publishers Distribution Services, Inc.
Date Filed: 10/18/2006
Address: 206 Mira Verde Dr., La Habra heights, CA 90631
Agent for Service of Process: Richard Schork, 206 Mira Verde Dr., La Habra Heights, CA 90631
Oh, and by the way, the subscription to Wired Magazine isn’t due until 2010.
