Good thing I opened what I thought was just junk mail. It only had an address as the return with no name.

Inside was a DVD sent from Peteren's 4 wheel and off road.

Reading the literature I find you will be billed 9.95 for this dvd, and enrolled in a dvd subscription unless you send the dvd back in the prepaid envelope, checking the "do not want" box.

Do not throw this envelope away!!!!

I will not be renewing my subscription.

Quite Simply: You Can Keep It

https://postalinspectors.uspis.gov/...fraudschemes/othertypes/UnsolicitedFraud.aspx

These rules are codified in Title 39, United States Code, Section 3009. That section of the Postal Reorganization Act of 1970 incorporates these protections for American consumers and makes the mailing of unordered merchandise unfair methods of competition and unfair trade practices under the law.

If you do not wish to pay for unsolicited merchandise or make a donation to a charity sending such an item, you may do one of three things (in each case, by law, you have no obligation to the sender):

* If you have not opened the package, you may mark it "Return to Sender," and the Postal Service will return it with no additional postage charged to you.

* If you open the package and don't like what you find, you may throw it away.

* If you open the package and like what you find, you may keep it for free. In this instance, "finders-keepers" applies unconditionally.

Furthermore, it is illegal for a company that sends you unordered merchandise to follow the mailing with a bill or dunning communication.

------

I once received the same and threw it away. After receiving a bill, I called the company and told them they had two options: keep sending me crap for me to throw away, or stop sending me bills as they're violating federal law. The bills stopped.

Yup, dont send it back. They sent it unsolicited so dont even send it back, its your for free now. There is even a letter to the editor in one of the recent mags about it and he explains it as just that.

I wish I got one

Petersens is a good mag, there are worse ones out there

Yea they even had a reader write in about it. The editor said just that. Keep it, throw it away, burn it, or even watch it. If they send you a bill send it back saying not ordered not paying.

No Mounty no more.
I've never cared much for Petersen's 4 Wheel Off Road. Four Wheeler is the only one I will read.

I don't care for anything Petersen puts out. Hot Rod and Car Craft use to be great until Petersen took over then they went to hell.

Magazines are just too expensive to buy. I sneak in to Jon's bathroom and read his old ones in the middle of the night :)
