To the attention of the International Figure Skating staff:
I have been a subscriber to your magazine for the past year. Like every
other U.S. subscriber, I pay $20 for a year subscription. The single issue
price is listed as $3.45. Similar story for your Canadian subscribers:
$28 per year, $4.75 per issue.
Your publishing credits in every issue state the following: "International
Figure Skating (ISSN 1070-9568) is published six times a year by Paragraph
I expect six issues per year for that $20, and I see that this is not going
to be the case this year. If you are only going to put out four issues,
then I demand that my subscription be extended to reflect the number of
actual issues I am entitled to receive.
Your magazine is defrauding its readership. I intend to share this
information with as many other subscribers as possible, inviting them to
express their displeasure as well.
These are the facts from your very own web page <http://www.magamall.com>
regarding the magazine for the past year.
