How do I stop getting magazines I didn't order?
- Be a careful online shopper.
- Keep an eye out for any unsolicited publications in your mailbox.
- Always use a credit card to buy online.
Keeping this in consideration, how do I stop getting magazines I didn't order?
If you receive a magazine you don't want in the mail, there should be contact information in the magazine itself that you can use to unsubscribe. You can also cross out your address, write "Cancel" and "Return to Sender", and drop the magazine in the mailbox.
Similarly, you may ask, why do I keep getting People magazine?
The reason they do this is to help their circulation numbers. Whether paid or not, if they are sending out magazines, and people are seeing them, it helps them retain advertisers. In essence, they make more money from the ads than the cost of the magazine being provided.
Someone can pay for a subscription and have it sent to you but it is illegal for them to order a subscription and have you billed for it without your permission.
