New scam targets Fresno Bee subscribers

Madera County Sheriff John Anderson is warning Fresno Bee subscribers about a new scam.

Residents in Madera County have received mailings from a company calling itself “Publishers Distribution Services” or “Readers Payment Service,” offering subscribers to “lock in at one of our lowest rates” for a yearly renewal. The return address is not in Fresno.

Readers with concerns can contact the Bee’s customer service department at 1-800-877-3400.

A similar scam has targeted Los Angeles Times subscribers.
