Default model airplane news $75.95?????

Look at this! 12 issues of Model Airplane News for only $75.95............wait there's more...flip what appears as the subscription renewal invoice over, and you get a disclaimer and notification of a automatic enrollment as a member of "orphans waiting" ?????? what the ____ is that??? and if you don't cancel within seven days and want to cancel there is a twenty dollar fee!

Know that this is not from the magazine subscription office but some outfit out of Reno, Nevada ...........Watch your pockets!!!!!!!

It's 25 dollars a year direct from MAN so I guess you're donating 50 to the orphans????

Thanks for reminding me I like the mail back idea ...fill it with heavy junk and send it back, let them waste even more money! no return address

BUT heck they didn't provide a stamp on their envelope so that's out. no maybe if enough are sent with no stamp and no return address and filled with Junk the post office will jump on them!
