Old Cars Weekly editor warns of subscription scam

Dear Subscriber,

1212-scamalertSome of you have recently reported suspicious offers in the mail to renew your subscription to Old Cars Weekly magazine. Your uneasiness may be justified. While still rare, fraudulent mailings are increasing. We have confirmed that unauthorized parties are attempting to represent themselves as Old Cars Weekly, asking for a check or credit card number to renew your subscription. They take your money but cannot deliver the subscription.


These simple guidelines can help you avoid becoming a victim:

• Before renewing, check your mailing label. You’ll find your expiration date at the end of the line above your name. If your subscription is not close to expiring and you receive a renewal notice asking for your renewal, it is most likely fraudulent.


• Look carefully at mail requests. We will never ask you to write a check to anyone other than Old Cars Weekly, and our mailing address on the return envelope should be to P.O. Box 421751, Palm Coast FL, 32142.

• If you are uncertain about any offer you receive, simply phone us at 1-877-300-0243. Orders placed through this number are secure. Or you can go online and place your order at www.OldCarsWeekly.com and its secure link for “Subscription Customer Care.”

We sincerely appreciate having you as a faithful reader and we are eager to help make the experience of subscribing to Old Cars Weekly magazine pleasurable.
