National Publishing Billing Services, LLC

Received another one of those “Notice Of Renewal/New Order” forms in the mail recently.

It looks like this:

PCWorldThis time, the address is in Carlsbad, California.  Checking with the San Diego Better Business Bureau, we find that National Publishing Billing Services has a D+ rating. 

In addition, checking with the California Secretary of State, there is no listing for National Publishing Billing Services as a limited liability corporation.  Of course, they could have filed for their corporate status in another state.

The address given for National Publishing Billing Service is 6965 El Camino Road, Suite 105-192, Carlsbad, CA 92009.

6965 El Camino Road, Suite 105 is a UPS store.     Number 192, is probably a box number.

The email address given is nationalpublicationsvc@yahoo.com.  Most legitimate businesses have their own internet domain name (nationalpublicationsvc.com shows as an expired domain name)  A company that can’t seem to afford to create their own website and chooses to use a free yahoo.com email address may indicate a problem.

And, finally, the telephone number given, (760) 561-1459 is somewhat suspicious as the 561 prefix is for Adelanto, CA which is over 100 miles away from Carlesbad, CA.

These billing/renewal scams all send out very similar mailings.  Your best bet is to just toss anything that looks like the above in the trash.

    I just received a bill for my deceased husband. He has been gone 5 years. I got one just like the one mention above. I called the 760-233-5662 # and the lady said I do not know them they have used my #. I was going to send them the statement back, but read where that address is ups address.
    To me this smells bad. I am not going to pay it or renew it. I haven’t received a book since his passing.
    TN.

    Mae,
    I’m sorry about your husband… no one needs a negative reminder from SCAMMERS and THIEVES about a lost loved one.
    These are their other SCAMMER names they go by:

    (Look them up on the Better Business Bureau under Liberty Publishers Service or United Publishers Network or whatever else they use — they are thieving TRASH)
