We're regularly getting phone calls soliciting magazine subscriptions from a firm that identifies itself as Media Publications.

When I ask for details as to who they really are, they identify themselves as being from Fort Lauderdale. When I ask more questions (or ask to be placed on their "do not call" list, they just hang up on me.

I had some difficulty locating any business by this name, but finally found them through a report from the Southeast Florida BBB. The BBB says they're in Pompano Beach, Florida (about 20 miles from Fort Lauderdale) and they're also known as Heartland Readers Service. The BBB gives them an unsatisfactory rating since they don't do a good job responding to complaints.

Here's the BBB report:

The contact info from that report is shown below:
