I was suspicious and did some Internet research and got 341,000 hits for "Magazine Sales Scam" on Google. I'm not sure which group these people work for but there is a very real possibility there is fraud involved here. The worst of it may actually be the plight of the salespersons, they are promised good money and travel and are often being scammed themselves. The stories on the net are scary.
If anyone else is concerned or has gleaned additional information from the salespersons as to whom the parent company is, please sound off.
One Federal Trade Commission
site ranked Alaska as the number two location of victims nationwide,
so apparently we are considered an "Easy Mark" by the
scam industry. Let's use this great resource to protect our community
or at least allay fears if they are legit.
