1 only because it would not allow a zero.

Order number yhst-46662686625523-29915 from DotComMags

Scam - ordered and paid for in March - never came.

Too late for Paypal.

store.yahoo.net - ERROR: The store you are trying to access has been canceled.

What recourse does Yahoo provide for stores it hosts ?

Order yhst - ************** - 28501. Hamburg, NY

Too bad you can't give 0 stars of even negative stars because that is what dotcommags deserves. Order magazine in March and still have not received any magazine, although my credit card was charged. This site/person is a total SCAM and I wish they could be caught up with and persecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Sadly I am now very leary of other online offers/sites. One big scumbag ruins it for a lot of other honest people.

I ordered 3 magazine subscriptions on 4/22/09 and I received them without any problems. I submitted a renewal on 3/31 of this year and noticed that the expiration date on my mailing label never changed. So I called the same 3 magazines and was told they never received payment or renewal notification from dotcommags. I filed a claim with Yahoo Buyer Protection (now PriceGrabber) and am still waiting for their response. I also called PayPal, explained what happened, that even though it's outside the 45 days, I still wanted to file a claim because I was told by dotcommags that I had to wait 8 to 12 weeks before I should expect my renewal to take place. The PayPal guy was very nice and said that he would try to get me a one-time, "educational courtesy refund". I told him that they needed to review other complaints about this company because I was not the only one. We shall see if the refund gets approved. He said it may take a few days before the money shows up in my account. It seems that dotcommags was legit in the beginning, but they took the money and ran .....

I guess I needn't even tell people not to buy from them anymore as their website is already down.

Ordered a $29.98 subscription to Collectible Automobile magazine on 1/17/2010. Still have not recieved magazines. The site said to wait 8 to 12 weeks for first magazine. Paypal refuses to help if you claim is later than 45 days. A perfect ploy for ripping people off. Since the company has now disappeared.

I too like many other people here was scammed by Dotcommags. I actually sent several emails while their website was still online with no response. PayPal is doing a serious injustice to us by not revealing more information about the scammer. I will file complaints with FTC and BBB hopefully they will stop this scum from stealing from other people.

I as well have been scammed but did make a complaint to the BBB as well as the FED. TRADE COMM. which were both very simple to do via email. I hope everyone else will do likewise. I will also fight w/Paypal about this if I am denied although it is over 45 days!!!! Not my fault for trusting a company on the internet --thought they were legal. Please everyone complain loudly!!! Thank you

I, too, was scammed by this company! You should go ahead and open the dispute and escalate it to a claim through PayPal. They will "close" it immediately because of the time-frame, but the more of these they get against dotcommags.com, the more likely they are to go after them for our money!!! Who knows, maybe PayPal will take care of it for us and we will get our money back. I won't hold my breath.

UPDATE: I talked to paypal and even though it is passed the 45 day window to file a claim (the claims automatically close if they are older than 45 days) she said to STILL put one in and even though it will close itself in a few hours if there is enough of us that file one for the same company their fraud department will be flagged and begin the process of trying to reimburse us.

SCAM SCAM SCAM! Same happened to me. It must have been new on the scene because I checked for this website for 'scam' related forums and it came up clean. This was back in Feb 2010. Of course they took my money via paypal and I never got my renewal. I started to wonder when my mag subcription started sending me cancelation notices. I found my conformation order and of course the website and the link to "check my order" were no longer valid. BTW- If anyone knows Sharon who left a great review tell her I want my money. She is oblivioiusly working for "THEM".

I ordered a subscription from them over one month ago. I emailed them to get the status and did not receive a response. So I emailed again and again and again. Then I called and got an answering machine. I left voicemails but guess what, no call back! I guess I'm going to be ripped off by them. This is your warning.

Waited 16 weeks for a magazine I never received. Dotcom said this was 'standard industry' time for that particular publication. They offered to cancel the order. I decided to cancel but have not gotten a refund. In the meantime I ordered the magazine from the publisher's website for the same price. Their turnaround time is 6-8 weeks. What bothers me most is that Dotcom simply quoted an industry standard processing time rather than investigate with the publisher what happened to my particular order. My experience is very similar to John's - customer service does not answer the phone; only communication is through email and that's been spotty.

I think they are fantastic! Their pricing is great and so far I've received all my magazines. Whenever I send an email to their customer service -- I get an immediate response. I am very pleased with their service and will use them in the future.

I placed an order for a magazine 5 months ago that i have not received. Customer service does not answer the phone and claims in emails that they do not know what is going on but never seem to call the publisher and work things out. Needless to say, I am going elsewhere for magazines.
