Fake Los Angeles Times Subscription Renewal - Readers Beware

My elderly neighbor called seeking my assistance after retrieving his mail, seems the newspaper subscription scammers sent him something he didn't understand. As I glanced over the statement I knew immediately this was part of a scam occurring around the country at many different newspapers.

If the yearly cost doesn't grab your attention, $799.95 for 364 issues, the lack of the Los Angeles Times logo lettering should.

I hope no one is taken by this scam, but I'm certain a few older readers sent in payments.

My mailbox did not have the renewal notice today from Publishers Billing Association, do they have access to all subscribers I wonder?
